IS/IT Strategy


1. Introduction

You are required to write a scholarly academic article based on critical engagement with a

chosen topic

 Part A

Mobility plays a critical role in the way we live. Our food, clothes and household waste

all need to be transported, contributing to our economy and quality of life. Movement

of people from one location to another without traffic stress is critical to ensure the

quality of life to the people living in the city. But the increasing use of planes, cars and

other fossil-fuel dependent modes of mobility are causing more pollution, putting at

risk our environment and health. It can also be noted that the traffic accidents are

affecting the society indicating the need for smarter mobility. Cleaner and smarter

mobility/ transport can actually meet Oman’s need for mobility and at the same time

deliver many public health benefits, including cleaner air, fewer accidents, less

congestion, and less noise pollution. Carbon-dependent transport sector can be turned

into a clean and smart mobility system.

The purpose of the task is to understand the significance of Smart Mobility and explore

their connection with IS-IT strategy. Write a research article critically analyzing IS/IT
