    This article provides a survey of techniques which can be used to add authenticity to electronic documents and messages.
  • Schach, Stephen R. (South African Computer Society (SAICSIT), 1994)
    The object-oriented paradigm is widely promoted as the optimal way to develop software. However, there is as yet no experimental evidence to back that assertion, and it is extremely unlikely that such evidence could be ...
  • Roets, R (South African Computer Society (SAICSIT), 1994)
    This paper replicates a study conducted in the USA to test the perceived need for IT training in organisations by non-IS employees, and the need for more general business knowledge by IS employees. The hypothesis tested ...
  • Ram, V (South African Computer Society (SAICSIT), 1994)
    Computer Based Scheduling is an important activity especially in automated environments such as CIM (Computer Integrated Manufacturing ) where it is an integral part of the total manufacturing function. Developments in ...
  • Lutu, PEN (South African Computer Society (SAICSIT), 1994)
    Parallel execution strategies/or Prolog programs are reviewed. Three models, AOPM, APPNet and RAP are discussed in some detail. The AOPM and the APPNet are AND-OR parallel execution models and represent the two ends of the ...
  • Introna, LD (South African Computer Society (SAICSIT), 1994)
    In this paper some views and ideologies of information systems and technology will be explored. Some of these views and ideologies are clearly understood and have a high level of support. There are however more subtle ...
  • Harrington, G (South African Computer Society (SAICSIT), 1994)
    EDI is a method of exchanging common business documentation between organisations by replacing paper transactions with electronic messages. The use of EDI can eliminate or significantly reduce the problems associated with ...
  • Gardner, BR (South African Computer Society (SAICSIT), 1994)
    It is generally accepted that Information Technology (IT) has the potential to promote development and alleviate some of the common problems in the developing countries. However, it would appear that few developing countries ...
  • Finnie, G.R.; Wittig, GE (South African Computer Society (SAICSIT), 1994)
    Modelling the effect of size on software development issues has been the object of considerable research in the software engineering community. The size metrics form an integral part of software project cost estimation ...
  • De Kock, G de V; Du Plessis, C (South African Computer Society (SAICSIT), 1994)
    The problem investigated in this study is, given a surname, determine similar surnames in a genealogical database. There exist a number of algorithms to determine the similarity between two strings based on their common ...
  • Crossman, T.D. (South African Computer Society (SAICSIT), 1994)
    This paper is an attempt to answer the question 'What is Information Systems?' While the characteristics of both a science and a non-science can be identified in Information Systems (IS), it is argued here that it is not ...
  • Berman, Sonia (South African Computer Society (SAICSIT), 1994)
    Since its emergence in the early eighties, persistence has become an important branch of Computer Science. Many persistent systems have now been developed and a wide variety of related issues have been well researched. Two ...
