    Project Details


    DIWA is a research program supported by the Danish Research Council's Program on Information Technology.
    The theme of the DIWA program is the design, management, and use of interactive Web-applications in distributed work settings. The project focuses on Web technology as an IT platform for collaborative, distributed work, inside an organization (intranet) or between organizations (extranet). The program is based on the assumption that the development of such interactive Web-applications gives rise to new managerial and technical challenges that most organizations and their IT departments have difficulties coping with.
    The goal of the program is to examine how Web-technology - as a networked, distributed computing platform - will change IS development and use as well as to develop conceptual frameworks and guidelines to support the practice of designing and managing Web-based information systems.
    The participants in DIWA is a group of 15 Danish researchers from CTI as well as Roskilde University, Copenhagen University, and The IT University of Copenhagen in cooperation with six companies.
