Now that you have a better understanding of what types of information systems a business may use for its daily operations and to support its customers, you will select an enterprise or organization (real or fictitious) of your choosing to determine which data management information systems can best support it. By then end of this class, the goal is to prepare a comprehensive proposal for the design and implementation of an information system that can support data management.
In this first Individual Project (IP), you will describe your selected organization’s issues related to data management, such as using sales to forecast future production needs. You will also set up the report outline so that you can add to it each week. The combined weekly IP assignments will be your final Key Assignment deliverable.
You will be working on many parts of the proposal throughout each week that will lead you to complete the final proposal report. Each week, you will receive IP assignment information and a deliverable for each IP.
First, you must choose a company or enterprise (can be hypothetical) along with a product(s) that fits the following criteria:
Nontrivial: The enterprise or organization utilizes or has the potential to utilize information systems.
Domain knowledge: You will apply concepts you learned in Unit 1 for BADA200.
Select a company and product that fit these requirements, and submit your proposal to your instructor before proceeding further with the assignments in the course. What you choose will be used for all of the assignments each week.
