1. Expertise as a Factor
The expertise of the researcher and practitioners such as the computer scientists,
engineers as well as mathematicians affect the IS integration in a sense that, they are the ones
who figure out how technology itself can be implemented to change the way people use
technology (Lee, 2011). For instance, after the internet was put in to use, they went ahead and
figured out how the internet could be used to access the information of the people who are
using it. Through their research findings and practices, they always find a thing which
without their effort could have not been there.
Forecasting the future by the government and industries are made difficult because of
issues such as infrastructure, technology, and employment according to chapter seven of the
Cortada textbook. For instance, there has been an increase in data speed which is enhancing

unpredictable. Also, technology is another issue which cannot be easily be predicted at what
level it will be in the future (Cunliffe, & Scaratti, 2017). There always technological
advancements on daily basis and every day there always new findings related to technology.
Lastly, the government and industries have been unable to predict the employment rate of the
future. This is because society is teaching the young ones to be self-employed since there
might not be some room for them to acquire jobs.
2. Project Quality and Compliance.

research team should have a clear plan of how to maintain quality standards throughout the
project (Nicholas & Steyn, 2017). With a plan, the team will have guidelines until they
achieve the final results of the research. Also, c...
