Recently got to know about this Wiki related to IS Theories. As researcher, I am experiencing the difficulty of finding the right mix of theories in our research areas.

This may not give you everything, but I am sure it will give you a kick start to move forward. Kudos to whom have initiated this collaborative act.

Today (24/09/2013) I did a presentation on “FOSS in the Enterprise” at the FOSS4Gov 2013 event, which was held in Colombo.
In this presentation, I basically concentrated on the FOSS solutions within organizations and at the integration level as well.
The presentation included,
FOSS based ERP, ECM, CRM, BI, Rules Engines, Work Flow Engines, Rapid Application Development Frameworks, Service Oriented Architecture solution frameworks and the popular frameworks leveraged in the layered architecture.
The presentation can be found at the link given below. (Slideshare).
Now you can reach the paper that I presented on eAsia 2009 Conference (Dec 2-4 2009).
My first research paper on eGovernment can be reached using the following link.
I should thank Dr. Shahani Weerawarana (my supervisor and the co-author) for all the encouragement that she had given to me to make this research a success. This paper was based on my MBA thesis which I submitted in 2007.
