In this week, your task for the final project is to research in the South University Online Library and on the Internet to identify a case study of your choice with a pertinent information system application.
Some examples could be: a health care organization, such as a health care insurance company, a major hospital, or medical laboratory; an academic institution, such as a university or a professional institute; a commerce and transportation center, for example a major airport, or maritime port; a transportation carrier, such as an airline company, a railroad company, or even a car transportation service; a network service provider, such as a telecommunications service carrier/provider, an Internet and voice digital service provider, or a cloud service provider; a major media organization, such as television network, or a multimedia service operator; an industry firm that manufactures products, such as a computer products manufacturer, a car manufacturer, or a hardware manufacturer; a major retailer, for example a food retailer, a home maintenance retailer, or clothes outlet; an entertainment complex, such as a hotel, a vacation resort, or a large recreation and entertainment complex; a financial institution, for example a banking system, a credit card service, or an investment trading service.
The above are examples to guide you with your research, but you are not limited to these areas. It is important that you arrive at your own case study based on your personal interests, and that it is well suited for an information systems analysis. Some criteria that you should consider in arriving at your case study are listed below:
Once you have selected your study area and case, and have received approval from your professor, you may proceed to the next steps described below. Create a report that focuses on the IS used to support the operation of your organization in your case study and answer the following questions.
