The computing industry in Australia has passed through a number of stages and is entering a phase where its pivotal role is using computers to maintain relationships, knowledge management and innovation. This has lead to competitive advantage becoming the most important goal. This subject places local IT industries firmly within the local and global economic context. The topics covered include: an overview of the global IT industry, including its direction and structure; the value of IT in business; implications of e-commerce, customer relationship and knowledge management, user modelling, outsourcing, and off-shoring; and legal issues in the new economy for formalising those relationships.
