CaseIT 2015 Theme: The Internet of Things

The Internet of Things: Challenges of the Future

Imagine this – the world at your the tip of your fingers. Devices, systems, and services all connecting seamlessly to give you the data you need, when you need it. The Internet of Things will give us the opportunity to change the way we live and work, but like many opportunities, it also presents many challenges.

Anything we can dream of – from mobile devices, transportation, infrastructure, and much more – will all be connected to the Internet. We are all partaking in the Internet of Things in our daily lives, sometimes without even knowing. According to Gartner, there will be nearly 26 billion devices on the Internet of Things by 2020. The challenges stemming from connecting and supporting all these devices create challenges for all organizations, no matter what size. In addition, by equipping everything to be seamlessly and continuously connected to the Internet, there will be an infinite amount of data collected. Being able to process this big data into information will give us greater efficiency and effectiveness in everything that we do.

The Internet of Things will connect all aspects of our lives and help us reach our full potential. Join us in exploring the challenges and possibilities of the Internet of Things at CaseIT 2015.

Announcing InTech 2015 & Organizing Committee Applications

CaseIT is excited to launch InTech, a 24-hour case competition exclusively for SFU students held concurrently with CaseIT’s International Competition from February 11, 2015 to February 14, 2015. It aims to provide 2nd, 3rd and 4th year students with the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the increasing value and transferability of the MIS concentration and to compete under the prestigious CaseIT name. InTech will provide Business, Computing Science, and Interactive Arts and Technology students with the chance to put their knowledge to the test through case study analysis and formal presentation to a panel of industry-experienced judges. InTech is searching for a team of talented and highly motivated individuals who will continuously strive for the best. It is these people that we will count on to push InTech to its inaugural success.

We are looking for individuals who are driven leaders and possess a curiosity for the MIS concentration. We invite you to apply for one of our two organizing committee positions:

  • Team Management Coordinator
  • Faculty Relations Coordinator

All students are eligible to apply, and while prior leadership experience is an asset, it is not required. Before you apply, make sure you check out the job descriptions to see which position suits you best. Applications can be found on our website.

The deadline to apply is Thursday, October 9th at 11:59PM PST. For those selected for interviewing, interviews will take place between October 14 – October 17, 2014.

Please visit the rest of the CaseIT website for more information about the international case competition.

A Change from Routine – CaseIT 2015

Planning is well underway to host the 12th annual CaseIT Management Information Systems case competition in February 2015. We are pleased to announce the following changes to CaseIT 2015:

  • The first noticeable change is our refreshed website. We want to ensure that we start the year off with a modern look that conforms to current web design standards. But, this is not the only change.
  • Dr. Kamal Masri – the judging facilitator at CaseIT 2014 – is to join us as a faculty advisor. Dr. Masri is also an accomplished instructor, winning the TD Canada Trust Distinguished Teaching Award in 2009, a MIS researcher focusing on systems development and design, and an esteemed case competition coach at the SFU Beedie School of Business. We are honoured to have him as an advisor for CaseIT 2015.
  • Last, but not least, amid ever changing business landscapes, we at CaseIT are expected to continue to organize an unparalleled, world-class event for competitors, sponsors, and all of our other valuable stakeholders. In order to do so, we are expanding the competition to twenty teams and changing to an invitational structure.
  • Additional changes to the competition format will be announced closer to the competition date.
