The objectives of IJDET are to establish an effective channel of communication between academy, industry and others concerned with digital enterprise theory, methods, enabling technologies and industrial case studies. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the areas mentioned above. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological and ecological changes in digital enterprise technology.


IJDET provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and engineers working in the areas of digital enterprise technology to disseminate research outcomes and practical case studies and to learn from each otherís work.


IJDET publishes original papers, review papers, research notes, case studies, etc. Special Issues devoted to important topics in digital enterprise technology will also be published.

  • Forensic data retrieval


    Researchers from Nigeria have looked closely at the latest tools for forensic analysis of data on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. They explain that at the moment retrieval of data from such devices remains a significant problem in terms of obtaining standardized data that will hold up in a court of law. There are also the issues of digital evidence being overwritten and so lost as new data is added to a device with its finite storage capacity as well as the possibility of a remote command being sent across a wireless or other telecommunications network to wipe and even brick a device before law enforcement is able to extract useful evidence in an investigation. The teams approach, tested with retrieving data from one social media app can circumvent this problem by using a forensic peer-to-peer application that duplicates and disperses information across three servers before it can be deleted or destroyed remotely [...]
