Management Information System

1.Briefly summarize the four trends discussed in this article from the lecture. A sentence or two will do:

https://www.cio.com/article/3601829/4-trends-fueling-hybrid-work-strategies-in-2021.html

2.Read CIO and Change Agent, found in the material at the top of the course. Brief comments on two things: The CIO’s next key role: Change agent | CIO

A. What are several of the ideas found in the article that have enlightened you?

B. What is one takeaway that can help you with the Level Out case? (Read it )

3.Describe two things, briefly:

Major points you’ll make in your response to the Level Out Request for Proposal, and

What you need to know about transitioning an inhouse ERP system to a cloud-based ERP system.

4. Read the article CIO/Data Governance. What is data governance? A best practices framework for managing data assets | CIO

We do not have time to discuss governance in any detail. But governance is the set(s) of rules that manage business processes in any business.

Data is of primary importance in contemporary business, so governing and managing it properly are of course highly important.

Comment on two specific points (name them) in the article that have enlightened you.

5.Source: The Five Forces – Institute For Strategy And Competitiveness – Harvard Business School (hbs.edu)

This article is based on Michael Porter’s earlier work. The “five forces” model is as relevant today as it ever was. Consider how parts of it might contribute to your strategizing in the LevelOut case.

6.What are your feelings / learnings about collaborative tools in the workplace? We have Slack, Microsoft Office 365, and Google cloud tools. There are only a few of the many collaborative tools available.

Consider, we live in a social media world; we understand connectivity and being ‘in touch’ online. Consider also cost to a company. Consider how such tools can make communication easier between function areas and employee-management layers. Have you experienced upside and downsides of one or more of these tools? Let us know . . .

7.Do brief investigations on the following and contribute:

a WI-fi security (why should you not do business on public Wi-fi networks?)

b. Social engineering: What is social engineering? what are several approaches to managing colleagues’ technology uses, in the interests of business security? State of the Internet Security Reports | 2020 | Akamai

8.Worrying about security in a business seems like a thankless task. Or is it? What are your thoughts on the following:

* Many security breaches are caused by using default system settings. See the Target breach. As an IT manager, how can you effectively address this known problem? Remember, security passwords and settings are not “set and forget.” There has to be a process that deals with matters over time.* Do you use the same information for multiple entities and sites? Why is this not a good idea?

9.Do a bit of research on 5G. What is it? Is it “here” yet? Assuming that it’s use becomes widespread, what will its benefits be to business? Keep in mind that there are several different “flavors” of 5G. That is, there are different speeds and capacities. . . and availability in particular areas!

10.As a manager and decision maker, you’ll have to participate in approaching technology changes carefully. What are three considerations to make when determining whether to 1. purchase an in-house ERP system, or 2. purchasing access to a web-hosted ERP system? We should see the direct connection between the course project (Level Out) and these readings. 11.Research and share the business and business process capabilities of a particular social media management tool that is NOT Hootsuite or Sprout.

12.This CIO article presents a perspective uniting data and the successful managing and outcomes of projects. Read and comment on a particular part of the article that speaks to you.

There are three overriding themes here, but you can certainly provide additional perspectives: project management, data, and analytics. https://www.cio.com/article/3612317/the-data-driven-project-manager-using-analytics-to-improve-outcomes.html

13.follow the link https://er.educause.edu/articles/2017/3/ethics-and-the-it-professional

14.You don’t need to share a great deal of personal information here if you don’t want to. There are two questions here. You can respond to either or both. Where do your senses of ethics and morality come from?

What is the impact of our current state of cultural, political and online behaviors on your own beliefs and behaviors? Discuss two matters within that document that are of interest to you: agree, disagree, I didn’t know this before, I’ve seen this in our company . . .

Management Information System

Hello, this is a 3 part assignment. One part is on ERD (entity relationship diagram), the second part is on data management, and the third is on data queries.

Everything is included in the attached word document. I WILL ATTACH A Microsoft Access Database (.accdb) file once question is accepted.

There are 3 parts to this assignment

Part 1 ERD

Data is “huge” when it comes to understanding customer patterns. The more data you have, and the more analysis you are able to do, the better you will understand what makes customers tick. Below is a letter from Jeremy Farr regarding your assignment.

For the survey, please have at least 8 items, excluding account IDs and demographic data such as customer names, account IDs, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, etc. You can be creative about the items, which will become fields in a database. Please make sure the data can be incorporated into a database and are useful for analysis. The survey must be neatly laid out but there is no need to focus unnecessarily on the design aspects since we did not cover it in class. The objective is to have relevant survey items that can be incorporated in a database and be useful for analysis. Include a short explanation of (1) why you chose these survey items and (2) how they will be measured (if not immediately apparent and/or if applicable). The rationale for the survey items must be based on the problem given below. There is no need to actually collect the data.

For the ERD, please include at least 4 relevant entities generated from your survey items. For instance, two survey items, such as customer name and telephone number can become a single entity for customer. You may include customer as an entity. There is no need to have all possible attributes. But please have relevant/suitable ones for each entity. Some attributes can be pointless, depending on the design of your database. And we don’t want to have unnecessary ones. Generally, each entity should have at least 2 attributes. You may choose not to have a primary key for any particular attribute if it doesn’t apply. Think about the problem below and what data (and hence information) are relevant. You are to use Visio (or equivalent) and paste the ERD in a word document, along with the survey. You can be creative with the entities.

For the survey and ERD, there is no perfect answer but there are clearly solutions that are better than others.

Part 2 Data Management

Select any one functional area in your organization. Think about the data involved in the processes. Based on your selection, use an Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) to depict the data model of the functional area. The examples covered in class may be useful in helping you select a functional area for analysis. Please be sure to select something that is manageable. Please also have 4 entities in your ERD. There is no need to have all possible attributes. But please have relevant/suitable ones for each entity. Some attributes can be pointless, depending on the design of your database. And we don’t want to have unnecessary ones.

Your ERD must be constructed using Visio (or equivalent). Paste the ERD in a word document as a picture for submission. If you do not have access to Visio, you can conceptualize it and use the computer in the lab. This will minimize the amount of time you need using the software itself.

Submit your work on D2L as a single word document (or pdf) by the due date.

Part 3: Data Queries

ManyBooks.com was developed by JK Rowling as an open marketplace for books online, a one-stop e-commerce search engine where you can search through more than 100 million new, used, rare, and out-of-print books for sale.

Ms. Rowling understands that you have expertise in databases. She needs help developing some custom queries for her sales and marketing team members. She has provided you with a sample data file, DA233_S1X-II.accdb. Specifically, what Jane needs is:

  1. Create a table showing the telephone number of each author. Streamline your database so you don’t have too much redundancy. Be sure to include the input mask for the telephone number. Make sure the formats are correct. You may make up your own telephone numbers. Save the table, giving it and the fields appropriate names. Hint: The input mask can be set if you choose the text data type for telephone number. (2 pts)
  2. Create relationships for the tables and enforce referential integrity. You should be able to generate the necessary relationships for all tables. Hint: To create relationships, click database tools at on the ribbon and you’ll see relationships. Drag the tables you want into the design canvas and build the relationships accordingly. You should be able to tell where the relationships are based on the fields. (2 pts)
  3. A query of all authors who have written a book that costs more than $10 and is a novel. The query needs to have the author’s First Name, Last Name, Title of Book, Price, Category, and Rep displayed. Save the query as AuthorsQuery. (2 pts)
  4. A query that calculates a 15 percent increase in the purchase price of each book. Sort the query on the new calculated field. Save the query as BookPricesQuery. (3 pts)
  5. A query that updates the price of each book by subtracting 50 cents. Save the query as Less50CentsQuery. (3 pts)
