Reflexivity was also an important parameter because it availed the researcher’s insight into when and at what stage(s) IS practitioners stand back and reflect on their actions as they do their work in order to determine whether they are doing it ethically or not. And if not, whether the measures they take to improve ethical concerns were sound and effective. Governance arrangements, the structures within which ethical issues are dealt with were also core parameters in the analysis. The final parameter was that of Implementation. This applied to the analysis of ethical actions and principles within the field of IS. It consisted of understanding what ethical actions were being implemented, by whom and at what levels. Bearing the aforementioned parameters in mind, some of the research results include the impact of current technologies on the individual, on culture and on organizations.
Also covered are the associated ethical issues of current technologies which encompass trust, social exclusion, privacy and surveillance, (un)freedom, misuse of technology and concern from the disgruntled among others. The document also lists identified emerging technologies which was mainly cloud computing as identified by the practitioners. This is then followed by an examination of associated ethical issues like loss of jobs, greater surveillance, security concerns as well as consideration of how issues can and should be addressed between different nation states when technology like cloud computing is hosted in one country but has clients in different countries.
An overview of the proposed solutions to address ethical concerns are also discussed, which included but were not limited to codes of conduct, technical solutions and education. This document has also identified ethical governance arrangements which identifies the governance policies IS organizations have in place, implementation of the governance policies and the practices engaged. In addition, the document gives a descriptive analysis of perceptions of emerging ethical issues from the stand point of IS practitioner views by:
• geographical location
• field of expertise/industry
This is intended to show whether there are similarities or differences in these areas which may suggest patterns in relation to current and emerging technologies and associated ethical concerns. Lastly, the document lists recommendations for IS practitioners, policy makers and other parties who might find them useful.
