dc.description.abstract The dissertation presents the adoption of publish/subscribe pattern as the existing communication paradigm into the South African National Parks (SANPARKS) organization. It focuses on restructuring the existing SANPARKS system into a publish/subscribe information provider that would enable clients to receive personalized information services delivered via sms, mms and email. A publish/subscribe architectural framework, which supports both mobile and desktop users with the following features was developed: a national park system restructured into an information provider; a portal interface for information consumers; a mobile interface support achieved by personalization and a highly rated usability index. This research was conducted by firstly, surveying the theory which consisted of the literature review. Secondly, the formulative aspect which consisted of model building, the proof of concept such as prototype and the usability testing of the prototype. The results of this research testify that the newly restructured SANPARKS meet the standard of the information provider entity. It also provides a portal interface for information consumers enabled by personalization. From the results obtained in this research the adopted publish/subscribe pattern solves the problem of restructuring the SANPARKS system into an information provider that enables clients to receive personalized information services delivered via SMS.
