“Information systems are one of the major tools available to business managers for achieving operational excellence, developing new products and services, enhanced customer and supplier intimacy, exploiting digital markets and achieving competitive advantage”

You are required to select from the above quotation any ONE of the business objectives identified (e.g. achieving operational excellence) and undertaking independent research of theory (e.g. books, journal articles, internet) and practice (e.g. examples and case studies), you should select an organisation that has used information system to achieve that business objective. You should ensure that you analyse and discuss the following elements as part of your submission (see assessment sheet & marking guidelines also)

a. Describe the major factors in your example such as the organisation, its environment and the overall elements and characteristics & technology of the information system.
b. Using the various business models such as the work by Porter, analyse the strategic challenges and opportunities that the information system seeks to address. Ensure you discuss the application of at least two different business models.
c. Specific to the organisation and IS that you have selected, discuss ONE of the following
1 Specific security issues presented by the Information System.
2 Problems and challenges in the development of the Information System.
3 Enhancements to the decision making process achieved by the Information System.

You may use any materials that you can find apart from the core course text. Most suitable relevant materials are likely to be articles in scholarly journals, published case studies, and/or academic books. You must undertake your own research to find journal articles and cases. Additionally you may find useful many articles and books that analyse the growth of e-commerce/ e-business; enterprise information systems (EIS/ERP); supply chain management systems (SCM) customer relationship management systems (CRM) and the various issues and problems that have arisen. Do please note that all sources that you refer to must be formally acknowledged in the list of references as well as being referenced appropriately within the body of the essay – see below.

Caution – Please note the following important points
1. Material that is mostly copied from the core course text will not be viewed kindly and such submissions are most likely to result in a fail grade.
2. As this is the only assessment for this module it is important that the marker should be able to distinguish between your work and views and those of others. Consequently it is important that when you refer to the work of others that you reference it properly. Your submission will be closely scrutinised for plagiarism and collusion. Please refer to the plagiarism section on the last page of the student guide that was issued to you at the beginning of the lecture.
3. Any evidence of plagiarism or collusion will result in a fail grade and the matter referred to the Academic Conduct Office
