Question Description

Case Study 2: Implementation Strategies

Your proposed information system is still a contender. The executives, however, are asking whether it is too limited to prevent the shadow IT projects that continue to take place throughout the organization. They believe that you have considered what the organization does now, but how will your system adapt to new products and processes? Read IQMS (2015) for a concrete example of what they mean. You’ll have to quell their fears, so it’s time for another memo. Please focus on these points:

1. Identify any significant changes that your organization might reasonably make in its product offerings in the next 3 years. Explain the competitive benefits of this change.

2. Explain how your information system addresses or can adapt to the introduction of these new product offerings.

3. Give one reason why capabilities for the new product offerings should or should not be incorporated in the initial information system design. Justify your reason.


The last paper I received a "C" as they said it wasn't explained well enough. I have attached the rubric so you can see. I also attached the first Case Study.

CIS 500 Page 3 of 3 Running head: CASE STUDY 1 To: The CEO From: Natashia Richmond Date: 05 November 2018 Transforming the Organization Implementation to Handle For the implementation process to work smoothly there is a need for additional and adequate resources which include the personnel, information, time and money. For the project to take on successfully, it is imperative that the right persons are employed at all the data handling points. The persons employed need to be tech-savvy. The additional resources in regards to the persons required will be ten more personnel out of which five should be technicians. Additionally, the other five will be support staff and various capacities. The support staff assists in handling the activities and smooth and seamless operation execution at all capacities and levels of the organization. The additional money that will be needed will help in the system upgrades and updates. It is important to note that the process is likely to require a lot more than any other item and may get to about $50,000. It is important to note that the old system which was in charge of payroll preparation, data management, and recording of documents. The old system is coupled with numerous mistakes and encompasses many errors hence making it quite tricky to depend on it. The old system also does not adequately integrate the decision-making process thus making inference difficult from the old system. Frequently, data redundancy and issues of semantics are noted in the system. The process will help in addressing the issues of data redundancy. CASE STUDY 2 The Change Management Proper data management system and firewall software will be put in place. Having semantic metadata management will help in coming up with corporate standards and eliminating the inconsistencies that may occur when interpreting (Morgan, 2015). Data quality firewall is also a measure to ensure maintenance if data quality is maintained all the time. Helps in doing away with redundancies and errors (Laudon & Laudon, 2016). The other one has new data and information system that will help in executing specific particular functions such as payroll preparation, keeping a record of employees, development, and storage of the company's documents and processing of the crediting cards the information system will help in the smooth execution of the services and operations of the company Training and Support Required. System Configuration During the time of system transition, there will be system configuration to match the operations. There will need to have all the members involved to address issues of software that work with the operations. Time needs to be allocated to address the configurations issues Training The staff will also need training on how to use the new system in payroll management and systems. There is a need to make adjustments and matches to ensure that the training specifics are met. The training documents need to be available for reference purposes. Specific instructions required for implementation have to be followed to ensure consistency. CASE STUDY 3 In preparation, there is to undertake user acceptance testing to ensure that the software delivers as anticipated. Through the process, it will be very easy to examine the software has any bugs. Therefore, it is important to carry out the test to see if a small section of data and software processes are effectively working. Of course, there will be an area of resistance such as the ability to take in new responsibilities and adapt to new technological requirements. The staff needs to show a willingness to adapt to the technological changes as a way of easily completing the tasks. ...
