Personal Appeal / Request
” I BEG YOU, PLEASE, in the name of knowledge and science, in the name of the All-Knowing GOD, please REFER, LINK from other pages/websites, COPY, GRAB, BACKUP, SUCK, MIRROR to MANY SERVERS or CD/DVD as much as possible. May The Most Mercifull GOD bless you all (ga peduli kalau Anda atheis atau nyembah batu atau nyembah tuyul, that’s your business). Tapi please bantu backup di server lain. Mohon bantuannya mensosialisasikan. The reason I am asking you this is that in my experience, in a couple of years, for some reasons, sometimes websites are shut down for some reason (like geocities now backed-up in reocities)…” (Arrianto Mukti Wibowo)
I am pleased to have a chance to know Muki (his nikcname) for we are able to get his teaching and consulting materials in relation to IT Governance study. Muki is academics member of University of Indonesia’s School of Computer Science. He places much interest in Strategic IT Planning, and he mainly works in IT Governance Lab. He even begs to copy, grab the whole site contents for further redistribution.
I grant your wish, Muki. He has already acknowledged the power of sharing and peering of web 2.0 as MIT open course did. So do I (my justification to download and upload those materials:) ). Building the “sharing spirit” on the top of this course materials, please do not hesitate to share it further to your peers. The more share you do, the better, remember Metcalf Law of network effect.
FYI, the original materials is sourced from Wikimuki page which is administered by Muki. Some modifications in terms of the look and data organization is done by me for some consideration. First, this topic will be organized into several posting as I do not want you to get jammed for comprehending all the materials. Taking a baby step is much wiser rather than solely grab the whole stuff but leave them eventually unread. Second, as I am a bit (or perhaps a very) perfectionist, I want my posting babies looked cool and enjoyable to read. That’s why I need time to do this and that kindda stuff, especially for the flow of contents. Last, I just have to manage my focus with my own study which also takes time. I’m sure you understand that, and thank you for that. One more thing, as the original website is constantly updating, you might need to keep udpated by watching my blog regularly too (not everyday obviously) or simply visit his website.
This first posting is simply a brief outline of the trip we’re about to take. The following points are the topics will be discussed (I don’t modify the order, only slice the whole materials into clusters):
- IT Governance
- IS/IT Strategic Planning 2a and 2b (Muki’s favorite topic and me too!!)
- Managing IT Investment
- Research Methodology
- Information System (IS) Principles
- Risk Management and IS Security
- IS Audit
- Decision Support Systems
- Business Process Design & Reengineering
- IT Architecture
As soon as the whole contents populate, I will rearrange with some link between the outline and the specific topic group. Some contents are still empty, waiting for uploaded. Do not worry, I keep my eye all the time to the website. Once it get uploaded, I’ll put it into my website too. Two type of materials are posted, video and reading (in pdf, word, or ppt formats).
Disclaimer: I hereby do not claim that part or the whole materials I post in this topics are under my ownership. But I make some modification to make it easier and enjoyable to reader. I will claim some topics if it belongs to me.
That’s it for now. Sorry, no downloads today :D.
