  • I had no expectations for this class when it started. But I learned that IT professionals are not all “techies” and programmers, but that many of the critical skills that are required in ensuring your company has a successful IT strategy are that of communication and being able to see how IT will affect your [...]

  • I do a great deal of school work from my work computer and in that respect, most of my essential data is saved on the network. I quit using kodak gallery awhile ago unless i wanted to order photos and started uploading them to facebook. That’s where people view them anyway. I have a macbook [...]

  • I guess I’m a little confused on what the app is for. I mean could the writer not have a blog for free that readers could interact with him or her on? I wish I had more to say on this topic but I feel like now there are some redundancies going on with this [...]

  • I currently work in an incredibly low tech environment. A small real estate development firm that deals in relationships and schmoozing instead of databases etc. We do however own and manage an 800,000 SF office building in center city Philadelphia. Many of our tenant management functions are outsourced such as our building engineering team and [...]

  • I think both of these things are reliable resources. As an avid yelper, I think that sometimes individuals opinions aren’t great, but as an aggregate the information is VERY helpful. I also like to do it to catalogue my restaurant visits because I am a poor excuse for a foodie. As for Wikipedia, I have [...]

  • Sorry I’m a few Mins late. What was the role of IT in the globalization of Wyeth? Traditionally Wyeth was a “diversified holding company” as well as a multinational corporation that was comprised of independent affiliates. At its peak operating as “American Home Products” it was selling over 7,000 products ranging from Pharmaceuticals to household [...]

  • Having worked in a global manufacturing setting, communicating with agents and vendors on every continent using email, fedex, fax machines, excel spreadsheets and phone calls, I know the technology exists to make the process more seamless but many companies are way behind. Retailers work on tight seasonal deadlines and the longer the development…[Read more]

    1. As demonstrated in this video there are many advantages to digital cameras, but what are some of the disadvantages? In my opinion there are not a ton of disadvantages to a digital camera, the one thing that is an advantage AND a disadvantage is the ability to see the photo’s immediately after you take [...]

    I agree with Max although it’s nice to see it laid out in a practical way. I often have the luxury of time in my job, but having worked in product development and manufacturing I can see where this level of prioritization can be necessary, ESPECIALLY when different things are important to different people. Retail [...]

  • Katzenberger’s overarching goals for its knowledge management strategy included bringing the firm’s top capabilities to the forefront as they worked with and developed their clients, enabling junior members to utilize the firms prior work to prepare deliverables, to allow upper management to lead more and instruct less and increase innovation and…[Read more]

    This is my case study write up as I do not see a separate place to post. Katzenberger’s overarching goals for its knowledge management strategy included bringing the firm’s top capabilities to the forefront as they worked with and developed their clients, enabling junior members to utilize the firms prior work to prepare deliverables, to [...]

    The first article demonstrates how many issues can be simply and cheaply resolved by simply filling out forms or updating an online database. I imagine most of these people have their Blackberry’s paid for with tax dollars and it seems ridiculous that if the city is footing the bill that it doesn’t have these numbers [...]

  • I have not been exposed to CRM, but having used a similar Retail Merchandise systems I must agree with suggestions 1, 2 and 4. There were NO formal training mechanisms for the merch software and every department trained their own new employees, and every employee had their own way of utilizing the software and had [...]

  • There a lot of things to chew on with this topic, but a personal example of my willingness to pay for “digital goods” can be best exemplified by my love of NPR podcasts. I really despise membership and donation drives but I have been compelled on a number of occasions to give to NPR and [...]

  • College doesn’t seem that long ago, but it was definitely pre-powerpoint mania! In lieu of power point, I was always furiously scribbling in notebooks that my mom is still trying to get me to purge out of her basement. I can’t help but think, was I wasting my time? Would a few salient points on [...]
