Advancement of Information Technology

The ever changing and rapid advancement of information technology creates a fast-paced and dynamic economic environment. To be successful in business today, managers must understand and operate the business processes efficiently and effectively. In this class we have explained and discussed in detail the importance of a competitive advantage. Furthermore, how the proper implementation of information technology and the effective management of an information system can give an organization a temporary competitive advantage. As effective future CIO’s, CEO’s, and managers you will need to understand MIS, the management of information systems, which deal with the coordination and use of three very important organizational resources: information, information technology and people. Remember, MIS is not technology.

Project Objectives:

1) To sharpen your skills as knowledge workers; an individual who works with and produces information as a product
2) To expose you to the role and importance of an IT professional who can design creative technology-based business solutions, working hand-in-hand with their business management counterparts from marketing, manufacturing, accounting, and human resources.
3) To polish your critical thinking and critical analysis skills.

Project Deliverables:

  1. A WRITTEN PROPOSAL

Discuss your proposed information system within the fictional organization or the company you plan to develop. Elaborate on the rationale for your chosen network design and IT infrastructure. Included within this proposal you will deliver:

  1. Specify the industry the company is in and propose the plan for its sales and marketing.
    i. Specify its business, including product/service, target customers
    ii. Describe any new technology-based products or services your company has focused on. Provide the detailed technical descriptions about the product/service.
    iii. Develop a specific marketing plan to reach your customers and promote your services/products. Be creative and realistic! You can also show promotion videos on social media websites.
  2. A description of the proposed Network Designs that you believe would be most beneficial for the organization’s current and future needs, including intranet and extranet design. *Read Chapters 7
  3. Describe and list all information systems and applications that will be adopted in the operations of the company, such as video-conference, inventory systems. Give the specific software / hardware you are going to use in your organization or any outsourcing company you plan to partner with. *Read Chapter 5, 6, 12, 13, 14 and search the website.
  4. An architectural layout (plans/drawings/office diagram) of the local office as to location, arrangement or placement of all possible equipments within the office. *Research the WWW or the Library for examples or templates.
  5. Take the security issues into consideration and prepare the control on the system development and regular system administration. Provide the specific software or hardware you are going to implement in your organization. *Read Chapter 8 & 9.
  6. Design a simple website for your company. You can use free website hosting site (e.g. www.webs.com; www.wix.com). Include the major webpages in your design.

As the individuals in your organization identified as having the most experience in the management of information systems because you are all currently enrolled in ISOM 210, you have been selected to create a proposal that will help to solve the problems of your organization. Your fictional company is riddled with problems of inefficiency and ineffectiveness and ripe for improvement. Your collective skills as application architects can help to provide them with a competitive advantage.

Option 1) Fictional Business Scenario:


You work in a local Boston office with 5 other people. Your office also has satellite offices in San Francisco and China. Your company is in the retailing industry, selling the products through eBay stores and its own website.
There are some computers in the office and several staff members must share the use of the computers. Occasionally, files and documents are missing or damaged in your local office. Files have to be saved onto a diskette or zipped and then printed from another computer because of the lack of printers. When someone in one of the out of town offices needs something, you send it via USPS, UPS, FedEx or DHL. It is also hard for the employees at the different branches to share the documents.
The accountant is extremely stressed because he/she is constantly updating payroll, tax records and inventory information. Presently, the accountant is not able to send or receive payroll information in a timely manner to the branch offices.
The inventory cannot reflect the sales order in real time. Currently, the inventory is still recorded in papers and Excel files. Since the delay of sales order input, “over sold” happens frequently. Needless to say your organization pays a pretty penny for express shipping and handling. At this point, how to manage the inventory better and deduct the sales amount from eBay stores and website from the inventory is the biggest issue to your company.
When there is a need for a conference to discuss new products, customer service issues or to present new ideas, you also pay out of your budget for airline travel, hotel bills and per diems.
Oh yes, your main competitors have well maintained an intranet for their employees, an extranet for their business alliances and information partners and a well-designed e-commerce site for their overall business processes. Your organization is a little behind the times. Therefore, you are not very competitive. If things don’t change – your company may be history soon!
The product in which this company sells is not stated, nor is the amount of revenue that it generates. Use your fabulous IMAGINATIONS!

Option 2) Your own company development


You can also plan to develop your own company. Please complete all the above six tasks based on your designed company plan. Your company should have at least two offices in the different locations.
*If you make any assumptions do put it down in writing within your rational section. You may assume anything. Please be creative!

Appointment in Samarra

Death speaks:

There was a merchant in Baghdad who sent his servant to market to buy provisions and in a little while the servant came back, white and trembling, and said, Master, just now when I was in the marketplace I was jostled by a woman in the crowd and when I turned round I saw it was Death that jostled me. She looked at me and made a threatening gesture; now lend me your horse, and I will ride away from this city and avoid my fate. I will go to Samarra and there Death will not find me.

The merchant lent him his horse, and the servant mounted it, and he dug his spurs in its flanks and as fast as the horse could gallop he went. Then the merchant went down to the marketplace and he saw me standing in the crowd and he came to me and said, Why did you make a threatening gesture to my servant when you saw him this morning? That was not a threatening gesture, I said, it was only a gesture of surprise. I was astonished to see him here in Baghdad, for I had an appointment with him tonight in Samarra.

Please use my course book beginning theory by peter Barry from page 160 till 173 and also use this points in writing the critic that the writer from the middle class and the servant from the low class.

Monkey Survey Data Analysis

In this chapter, we analyzed the data collected from experts and volunteers and we are going to use the monkey survey to create the charts. 11 responses from people living in the UAE are collected by the researchers. The information collected with analyzed using thematic analysis and the researchers believe that thematic analysis emphasizes organization and made description of the information set. Thematic analysis goes on the far side merely investigating phrases or words in a very text and moves on to distinguishing implicit and express concepts at intervals the information. The results and findings will be applicable for the entire country population. The survey is available in two languages which are Arabic and English.

Volunteers:
Figure 1: Showing the gender

This chart shows the gender of males and females who are answering the survey questions; the percentage for both genders are equal. Half of them are females 50% and the other half is for males 50%.
Equal gender ratio means that disability is not limited to one gender but can also be found in males and females.

Figure 2: Showing the age

The given chart shows the age of the responses, less than quartet which is 17% were between 18 and 24 years old. Another 17% is for those who are between 32 and 38 years old. However, one third which is 33% consisting of this two groups between 39 and 45 years old. Also, the second group which their age is over 45 got the same percentage which is 33%.
Having a people their age is between 18 and 24 years old with no job is mostly because they are still studying. On the other hand, people with age between 32 and 38 years old are not working because they still have some concerns about the work environment and their integration and because of the lack of consensus and the potential to help them work in the past. Furthermore, if we come back to last two groups which is between 39 and 45 years old and those who are over 45 are facing some difficulties in finding a job because the vision of the UAE is aiming and give priority to the youth.

Figure 3: Showing the marital status

The graph demonstrates social status of the voters form the survey, however the results are showing an equality between the social status which it looks like we have two people are married and the other two are single and the two people are widow.
Achieving an equal percentage in the social statues shows that disability is not a major barrier to influencing social relations since people with disabilities can practice social life normally.

Figure 4: Showing the nationality

From the chart it’s clear that, there are two percentages of the nationality of the voters. In addition, as we can see that the study aims to achieve equal numbers between the Emirati people and other nationalities which is half of them are locals 50% and the other nationalities are also half 50%.
The UAE is a country which have a lot of nationalities living in it, and it has a seen to treat people equally whatever their situation is or states or nationality.

Figure 5: showing the type of disability or impairment that participants of the survey has.

This chart shows the type of disability or impairment that participants of the survey has. The highest two type of disability that participants has are Hearing and Other with equal percentage for both which is 33.3%. Also, Physical and Mental disability have the same result with 16.7%.

This means that there are hearing and other types of disability more than physical or mental impairment at the UAE. Also, this means that there is no one specific type of disability at the society.

Figure 6: showing the kind of qualification that participant has.

This chart shows the type of qualification that the participant has. As it shows that No degree and Middle school degree have exactly 33.3% In the other hand High school degree and College or university degree are the lowest with 16.7%.

This means that people with the disability does have lack of education and professional.

Figure 7: showing the Participants thinking that the disability is an issue in finding employment.

This chart shows the Participants thinking that the disability is an issue in finding employment. As it shows that all of participants said Yes with 100% thinking that their disability is an issue in finding employment.

This mean that participants agree that the problem of finding employment and job is because of their disability.

Figure 8: showing the opinion of participants that chances of getting work or finding a job is hard.

This chart shows the opinion of participants that chances of getting work or finding a job is hard. People with a disability says yes is hard to have a chance to get work with totally 67%, while other says no with 33%.

This means that chances of have a job for people with the disability are low because is hard and rare to finding a job

Figure 9: showing the participant feeling of not having a job.

This chart shows the feeling of people with disability who are the participants in this survey of not having a job. People with a disability feel Sad and Hopeless with exactly 33.3%, while others who feel Angry and Not satisfied for not having a job are 16.7%.

This means that participants are not angry about not having a job as much of feeling sad and hopeless to begin at the home and doing nothing.

Figure 10: showing the participates opinion of the issues of finding a job.

The chart shows the participates opinion and thinking of the issues of finding a job. As it shows that half which is 50% of participants says is Because of the disability, 33% says is Because of the qualification and the lowest percentage with 17% says it is Because of transportation.

This means that the biggest barrier in finding a job is because of disability according to people with a disability opinions.

Figure 11: showing the people with disability opinions about the reasons of not having employment.

This chart shows the opinions of people with disability about the reasons of not having employment. 33% says that judgmental and stereotype is the biggest reason, 22% says because of attitude, other 22% is lack of job opportunities, transportation and no help tools available are the lowest reasons with 11%.

This means that a lot of people at the society still have lack of knowledge about the equality and rights of people with disability and the great potentials they have.

Figure 12: showing the participants thinking of tools or ways that would help them to find a job.

This shows the people with disability opinions of tools or ways that would help them to find a job. 33% of participant says Offer online job, the same result with 33% says Attitude which is an awareness and educate community about people with the disability, others such as Provide helping tools and Provide transportation are lowest with 17%.

This means that offer online job would help because of their disability as they can work from home, about attitude it will help people with a disability because how they experience the view and judgmental of other people at the society.

Experts:

It’s clear that the answer (Yes) from all the experts is the only answer with 100%.
This means that the society’s view is beginning to change for the better in terms of people with disabilities and accept them in the field of work and the work places have provided the possibilities that enable people with disability to do their work.

The chart shows that all the experts answer is (Yes) for this question.
It means that managers want the people with disability to be integrated into society and provide them with social protection in order to give them confidence in their abilities and strive to develop it.

The main answer for this chart is (Yes) and it got 100%.
This means that there is a strong desire to bring about a change in society and to erase the negative idea of this category.

The total percentage goes for the answer (No) which is 100%.
This means that the job opportunities for this group are few and it should increase to accommodate their number.

History of Coal Mining

History of Coal Mining


Coal mining is a technology that dates backs thousands of years ago, but it gained prominent during the time of the Industrial Revolution in the 19th, as well as the 20th century.


During the Industrial Revolution, coal mining became the main source of energy in industries and for transportation- With the extensive development of industries during the Industrial Revolution, coal mining became rampant and ever more important. While oil and gas became alternative sources of energy later in the 19e century onward, coal is still extensively even today (Hodge, 2A). For this reason, it is important to explore the history of coal mining in regards to its initial development, its extensive use in steam engines, a source of domestic fuel, and how it was used to generate electricity.The earliest history of coal mining was done on small-scale that occurred by removing the coal lying on or close to the surface. Archaeological evidence shows that around 3490 BC surface coal mining for domestic use was done in China (Cleveland, 2009,1,2, i). Evidence also shows that the earliest known coal mining in the Americans was conducted by the Aztecs who often burned it and shaped.it into jewelry. Further, in Roman Britain coal mining was done around 2nd AD where the Romans explored the coalfields, which was used locally and later traded along the North Sea (I{odge,2A). When the Romans departed from Britain around AD 410, there is no documentation of coal mining until the 12m century. Around 1228,therc is record of coal being sold to London and in most of l4th century, coal became rampant in Britain for household use.

Sir George Bruce started the frst coal mine in 1575 that allowed coal to be retrieved from a “moat pif’ (llodge,2013).In the 17th century, coal mining technology was advanced to include techniques such as test boring that help identify appropriate deposits while 2 chain pumps were used to drain the collieries. However, at this time, most of the coal was used for household purposes.

Domestic Fuel


Before the Industrial Revolution, most also was used for domestic fuel. Coal was especially used for heating buildings or keeping the house or caves wafins. According to Speight (201 5, 4, 46,2). coal was used by Hopi Indians or the modem-day southwestern U.S. for cooking, heating their household, and even for ceremonial cambers dating back to the 12th century. They acquired most of the coal by scraping it from the surface or picking it from the ground. Further, in 13th century, coal was also used in China for domestic purposes to providing heat or heating up the building to protect from the cold (Cleveland,2009). In this way, the first uses of coal was mainly for domestic purposes.

However, the Industrial Revolution, which started in Britain in the 18th and 19th century and went on to spread to Europe, North America, as well as Japan largely depended on the availability of coal.
The invention of the steam engine in l712 and more advanced in 1804 led to the increase in the demand for coal (Nuvolari, Verspagen & Vcn Trurzelmaa,711)” Steam power required a lot of hot steam that came from boiling water that allowed the pistons to move back and forth.


These pistons would then help power machines or turn wheels. In order to create the steam, the steam engines had to make use of water that was heated by burning coal (N:rv*lari, Verspagen & Yon Tunzel:na:rn” 2fi1i). Before the development of steam engine, many factories used water, horse, wind, or manpower, which made them inflexible. The development of steam engine brought the realization that coal was the most efficient way of boiling the water. This increased the amount of coal mined because it was extensively required to run factories, locomotives, trains, and steamboats.

Major Roles Played by Coal Mining

Coal mining also played a significant role during the Industrial Revolution in generating electricity. The 1880s marked the first time when coal was used for producing electricity for using in homes and factories (Speight, 2812,5,13, 10). Coal helped generate the steam that was required for driving generators that in turn produced electricity. This allowed electricity to become available not only in factories but also in homes. Use of electricity because of ease of availability of coal also expanded from the urban areas to the rural areas allowing many people to begin using electricity for various purposes around the home (Speight, zUn).In this way, coal mining played a significant role in the development of electricity on a large scale. This historical invention is still used today in generation of electricity in counkies such as the United States, Canada, Japan, and many others.

Conclusion


The development of coal mining occurred thousands of years ago but it became more dominant during the Industrial Revolution. However, before the industrial revolution, coal was used by various communities such as native Indians and Chinese for domestic purposes. During
the Industrial Revolution, coal mining become extensive and the main source of power for factories, locomotives, trains, and all sorts of power driven activities. Further, the widespread use of coal helped reveal its potential in the production of electricity.

Series of Short Writing Assignments

This learning portfolio consists of a series of short writing assignments. You will be required to complete and revise these assignments throughout the semester, and to compile and submit your completed portfolio in class on or before 12/05.

General Directions:

.Please complete ALL of the individual assignments listed below, and compile them into one document to submit by the due date. Note that some chapters do not have a corresponding assignment (e.g. chapter 1).

Follow the directions for each individual assignment closely. This sounds simple, but most of the points people lose are due to failure to follow the directions. To help with this, many assignments are broken down by components, for example A, B, C, D, etc. Please respond to these assignments by specifically addressing each component with its own paragraph.

Use your best writing skills. This assignment should reflect college-level writing ability and will be graded significantly lower if it does not. High school-level work uses proper grammar, punctuation, spelling, sentence structure, and reasonable paragraph lengths, so these components are absolutely mandatory in the learning portfolio.

There are no length requirements for the individual assignments, so please do not try to lengthen your submission by including fluff, by being redundant, or using formatting tricks. But at the same time, do not provide superficial responses. Take your time to respond to the assignments in a complete, meaningful way, and whatever length it ends up being is the “right” length.

Unit 3 Discussion Essay

For my essay, I chose to use the source “I’d Rather Not Be on Relief”. The person who wrote this source was Lester Hunter and it was written in the year 1938. This source is actually a poem which eventually turned into a song. In this poem, Hunter was expressing how what his life was really like working on the fields and not being treated well by his farmer or making ends meet. If you think about the word relief, one form of it means assistance or help. You can see in his poem that he needed that relief for himself and his family. Not only, for him and his family, but also other workers in the field as well and that’s what he was trying to convey to his farmer.

This source tells us why Lester Hunter wrote this. It mentions, “Lester Hunter left the Dust Bowl for the fields of California and wrote this poem.” That tells me that he wanted to make a better life for himself and his family. The Dust Bowl where the vegetation had decreased and the soil had corroded. Since that happened, things went downhill for the workers. Another thing I realized was all the difficulty he was going through as a worker. He talked about the struggles on how they would dress, how they would barely have money for necessities, and how the farmer basically didn’t care about how much they were really struggling. It was really interesting reading some of the verses Hunter said in his poem like “We go around all dressed in rags while the rest of the world goes neat, And we have to be satisfied with half enough to eat. We have to live in lean-tos, Or else we live in a tent, For when we buy our bread and beans. There’s nothing left for rent.” (Hunter, 1938). That part of the poem gives us a gist of what life how much economic hardship there was back then and we could tell that the workers might’ve felt that they had no sense of freedom. Matter of fact, the government called workers “slaves of the depression” and also they mentioned that they were in “terrible and inhuman condition”. (Foner, pg. 871).

Was there a change that took place? Did the workers get a sense of freedom economically? Hunter says in his poem “The times are going to better. And I guess you’d like to know. I’ll tell you all about it, I’ve joined the C.I.O.” (Hunter, 1938). The CIO came into place in 1935. This turned around the economy for the workers in such a delightful light! The aim of this was to “secure economic freedom and industrial democracy for American workers.” (Foner, pg. 872-873). We can see by the source how the workers were in such terrible shape economically but things turned around for everybody.

My Essay:

Give Me Liberty by Eric Foner and Progress and Poverty, Selections by Henry George (1879).


The book chosen is the Progress, Poverty, Selections (1879) by Henry George which is the best book known for influential reforms. In 1879, the society was experiencing a rise in economic growth, but poverty was crippling in among the largest population. Henry George, an economist, wrote this book exploring the impacts of the situation the society was having. In his book, he was inquiring on the causes of the industrial depressions causing the inequality and what were the causes of people’s increase of want as the wealth increased. George proposes the implementation of the single tax to limit the disparity. He shows a clear intellectual insight with the people’s condition and is concerned in giving remedies that would heal the community from the human suffering. Just like Eric Foner in the “Give Me Liberty,” George is determined to provide a declaration of independence and freedom to the nation.


George wrote about the Gilded Age when income inequality had risen. Many Americans were living in poverty and society was made up of extreme paralysis and partisanship. Inequality was a threat to American democracy and thus getting out of poverty was their meaning of freedom. The prominent figures in that era argued that the free market gave the citizens the freedom to work hard and play by the rules, therefore, claiming that inequality was never the problem. But George insisted that if the government was not going to eradicate the inequality in the society, it would turn into a nation full of haves and have-nots where the majority were living in poverty, and the small population was the aristocrats ruling over the others.

Political inequality was one of the challenges that existed among the Gilded age in living out their concept of freedom, a country with no income inequality. George claimed that “It is not enough that men should vote; it is not enough that they should be theoretically equal before the law” (493). This statement meant that the people needed liberty that would help them achieve their freedom and open up to opportunities and means of life. If the Gilded age took part in the social reforms, they would attain the freedom of living and enjoying a decent standard of living (George, 209). A republican society would open opportunities for the members to have access to good housing, good jobs, effective education systems, and decent salaries. According to George, the government, therefore, had to form laws that would promote the common good of society and limit inequality. Increase in government power would protect people’s liberty and promote democracy.


Summary

The book by George Henry fits into the larger context of the struggle over freedom in the US because in the early 20th and 21st century there have been dangers of extreme inequality and individualistic economy threatening the democracy and republican of the citizens. Similar movements appear that aim in dealing with democracy, justice, equality and the common good of the citizen.

The laissez-faire government oppresses the people because of their greediness in controlling the modern industrial society that is large corporations and banks. The government should be a protector to the freedom of the members and not a threat to their liberty. A progressive movement as in the Gilded Age laid a foundation for the reforms that freedom fighters established in promoting the common good of the people.
