To further elucidate this topic, some aspects of the conventional financial system are discussed on the applicability from an Islamic perspective. Firstly, the advancements of technology that had led to the invention of cryptocurrency and how the Islamic financial system can evaluate the determinants of the adoption of such cryptocurrencies were reviewed. Secondly, the use of digital wallet and how it is encouraged by the government to increase transparency in the financial system and finally, the applicability of a dual-currency model, which covers the idea of revitalizing the dinar and the dirham as well as the implementation of a dual-currency regime in a nation and how it benefits the economy and prevents the failures of the financial system are discussed along the way. The paper reviews scholarly work conducted by both contemporary conventional and Islamic economic scholars. In addition to that, this paper incorporates the views from the classical Islamic scholars such as al-Ghazali, as well as reviewing the money, banking, and financial systems that were conducted during the early Islamic reign, which would be deemed helpful in formulating an Islamic monetary system that could be pre-eminent in today’s world.</p> Afdzaal Jehabar Sadiq, Mohamed Akbar Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Information Systems and Digital Technologies Mon, 30 May 2022 00:00:00 +0800 THE EFFECTS OF PERSUASIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR INFLUENCING END-USERS’ INFORMATION SECURITY AWARENESS <p><em>In today’s digital world, information assets have grown in importance, demanding measures to ensure their protection. Ubiquitously, end-users are having trouble ensuring the security of their personal information. The human factor is a major source of vulnerability in the field of information security. Traditional techniques that can be used to influence information security awareness (ISA) remain prohibitively expensive, time-consuming, and repetitive. In light of these challenges, this study proposes persuasive technology to influence end-users security awareness and behaviour intention. Based on our research, persuasive technology is effective in changing end-users attitudes and behaviours. In this context, this study assesses the effectiveness of persuasive technology use for influencing end-users’ ISA. In addition, this&nbsp;research establishes an integrated model for improving end-users’ ISA by incorporating relevant literature and multiple empirically verified theories, including Fogg Behaviour Model (FBM), Protection Motivation Theory (PMT),</em> <em>Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB), and Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). The integrated model has been proposed based on the main categories of FBM (motivation, ability, and trigger) to identify the effects of key factors in the persuasive technology context for influencing end-user ISA and behaviour intention. The prototype was developed by implementing the persuasive factors of the proposed model to measure the effectiveness of persuasive technology. Quantitative data from an experiment were gathered from 100 participants to validate the proposed research model using the paired sample T-test and partial least squares (PLS) to assess security awareness in the context of persuasive technology. The research findings show that using persuasive technology has a positive influence on ISA. The results also indicate the research model significantly predicts the key factors affecting security awareness and behaviour intention with respect to persuasive technology. Thus, this study suggests a model for the creation and development of a proactive and customised security awareness system.</em> <em>Therefore, persuasive technology, in general, has a positive effect on users’ security awareness and the intention of security behaviour</em></p> Mohammed Abdullah Bawazir, Murni Mahmud, Nurul Nuha Abdul Molok, Akram Zeki Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Information Systems and Digital Technologies Mon, 30 May 2022 00:00:00 +0800 THE STATE OF OPEN GOVERNMENT DATA IMPLEMENTATION IN MALAYSIA GOVERNMENT AGENCIES <div> <div> <p class="abstract"><span lang="EN-US">The Malaysian Administrative Modernization and Management Planning (MAMPU) aims to enhance the quality of datasets published on the portal towards the year of 2022.

In recent years, however, the progressive roll-outs that constituted the basis of these programmes have been abandoned, with universities embracing online learning and digital student services at an alarmingly fast rate. This study investigates the digitisation of teaching &amp; learning (T&amp;L), Research &amp; Innovation (R&amp;I) and Community Engagement (CE) as both an external process affected by government and worldwide trends, as well as an internal activity occuring inside educational establishments in Malaysian Current Universities (MCU). Malaysian Universities need new business models in order to remain relevant and viable. Driving factors such as technological advancement, financial assistance and market developments are forcing the higher education sector to rethink its business model. The post-pandemic, 4IR and digital changes are dynamic and complex. We use a design thinking approach in which business modelling tools such as the Environmental Map (EM), Business Model Canvas (BMC), and Value Proposition Design Canvas (VPC) are used to establish, layout, and consider different business models to humanize education for higher education institutions, as well as for other universities in Malaysia and Globally. These technologies enable Universities to create value and give value propositions and advantages to their customer segments. Finally this paper amis to establish a conceptual Malaysian University of the Future (MuotF) business model that is continuously relevance in the post-pandemic and IR4.0 era.</p> Bilal Ahmed Wani, QANDAGHA SAFI, ABDUL RAHMAN AHMAD DAHLAN Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Information Systems and Digital Technologies Mon, 30 May 2022 00:00:00 +0800 BEST4U.COM: A CREATIVE PLATFORM FOR SECONDHAND ITEMS TRANSACTION <p><strong><em>This paper introduces a conceptual business model for a web and mobile application-based online platform called “”.&nbsp; This platform enables people to buy and sell second-hand products. “” aims to accomplish one of the Sustainable Development Goal 12, to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns. The business model for this app is developed by the design thinking method, which helps to understand the crucial problems, possible solutions, validation of customers' segments, and suggestions for conceptual solutions. The other tools used are Business Model Canvas (BMC), Value Proposition Canvas (VPC), Environment Map (EM). A survey with the initial potential customers has been conducted to validate the initial Business Model Canvas and Value Proposition Canvas. The majority of our respondents are comfortable with internet shopping, and they use it to buy books, gadgets, and other items. The finding of the survey revealed that most individuals aren't interested in doing online secondhand buying because there aren't many effective business platforms available. They are, nevertheless, willing to buy their essential used things online if several important issues, such as delayed delivery, fraudulent products, and transportation costs, are addressed. Finally, this paper provides a validated conceptual business model of an online second-hand shopping platform/apps, which is called “”, with the goal of making online second-hand shopping easier.</em></strong></p> Yufei Liu, Md Anwarul Karim, Md Rakibul Hassan, Huda Md Najmul, Manaaz Riyas, Nurhafizah Binti Mahri Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Information Systems and Digital Technologies Mon, 30 May 2022 00:00:00 +0800 AN ELDERLY-CENTERED DESIGN APPROACH FOR MOBILE CHAT APPLICATION <p>Connection and communication are heavily contingent on the internet and mobile apps, especially in this pandemic. With the blessings of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), the population of this digital era are highly dependent on several mobile applications. Undoubtedly, mobile apps have made our life easier and more straightforward, especially in the communication sector. There are at least hundreds of chat applications worldwide. Most of these communication platforms have been developed with many interactive and complex features designed mainly for the younger generation. However, in the perspective of Bangladesh, the older generation is unfamiliar and less comfortable with the concept and lacks the necessary digital literacy to use these advanced communication platforms. They frequently encounter difficulties in comprehending and using those applications. Thus, the authors described human-computer interaction (HCI) and briefly discussed some of the design issues from older adults' experiences in this report. Furthermore, a suitably designed chat application was &nbsp;proposed based on understanding the challenges faced by the elderly. With a user-centered approach, the design emphasizes simplicity and minimalism, making it easier for the elderly to communicate through mobile technology.</p> Murni Mahmud, NAHREEN ZANNAT, NADIA NOWSHIN Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Information Systems and Digital Technologies Mon, 30 May 2022 00:00:00 +0800 IMPLEMENTATION OF OPEN GOVERNMENT DATA IN ASIAN COUNTRIES: A REVIEW <div> <div> <p class="abstract"><span lang="EN-US">Open Government Data (OGD) is data gathered and processed by public sector or government agencies and made available to the public via a web portal.
