Modern organizations face a highly dynamic environment that requires management to integrate the distributed and disparate systems for organizational efficiency. Such integration can promote knowledge growth within an organization. Integrated systems can be developed to overcome the distributed nature of existing information systems or models through the use of advanced emerging technologies. Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) is one such emerging technology. This paper describes how this emerging technology can integrate organizational systems by illustrating with a simple example and suggests how CORBA can be delivered in the IS curriculum. When students learn how to use an emerging technology to resolve a current organizational problem, they learn the relevant skills for industry's felt needs.

Keywords: design and implementation, emerging technologies, organizational systems, CORBA
