Shaping technology, guiding policy : concepts, spaces, and tools( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text analyses the relationship between technology and society. It highlights both the policy implications of this relationship and possibilities for intervention by government, policymakers, managers and the public. It examines and utilizes a variety of contemporary concepts which highlight the scope for local discretion and choice in the way that technologies are designed and used as well as the broader structures and systems that may serve to restrict choice. By applying these concepts to an analysis of case studies of various social and technical settings, the book explores their utility for understanding the ways in which contemporary technologies are developed and applied and how they are made to influence society
Software and organisations : the biography of the enterprise-wide system or how SAP conquered the world by Neil Pollock( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book that addresses the genesis and career of the modern day enterprise system in a comprehensive and robust manner. It does so through setting out a new approach for the study of packaged solutions and presents novel empirical studies based on in-depth ethnographic and longitudinal research conducted within supplier organisations and other relevant sites. The authors shift the debate within the social study of information systems, from one that is primarily focused on 'implementation studies', to one that follows software as it evolves, matures and crosses organisational boundaries. Through tracing and comparing the 'biography' of a number of software systems the authors develop a new vocabulary for the dynamics that surround standardised software. Original in its approach, this book draws on a number of ethnographic studies in supplier organisations, user settings, user forums, and applies theories from the Sociology of Technology, Technology Studies, Innovation Studies, and beyond. As such it will be of interest across all of these subject areas and to researchers from the wider fields of Information Systems and Business Studies

Clean technology does not just aim to dilute or detoxify industrial waste. It aims to eliminate it by re-engineering the entire production cycle. As industry is constrained by regulations on the one hand and consumer pressure on the other, energy-efficient, resource-efficient and pollution-free production becomes imperative.
