QUESTION 1

The relationship between IT and other areas of the organization is critical for many aspects of IT within organizations.  Discuss the role of IT governance and leadership in understanding how organizations see the value of IT. 

What is IT governance?  Discuss different approaches to IT governance.

How can different types of IT leadership impact the role of IT within an organization?

Provide specific examples where applicable. Use the readings (and, if you wish, other relevant references) to support your answer.  Please provide citations.

QUESTION 2

Develop an IT innovation strategy for your organization (or an organization you are familiar with). Describe the organization’s situation and how a specific innovation approach (disruptive, architectural, routine, radical) would be most appropriate for it.

QUESTION 3

Choose one of the following:1) internet of things 2) blockchain 3) big data/analytics
 Describe two real-world applications of your chosen technology. How does this technology enhance business competitiveness/profitability in the two applications?

Please Note the Following:

1- Make sure to cite the references (both required readings and external sources, if any) you use. Proper citing (using, for example, APA style) of an article includes necessary information such as author name(s), journal title, year of publication, etc. Just referring to “Readings from Week 3” or “Harvard Business Review” is not proper citation. 

2- As always, quality outweighs quantity. While your answer needs enough length to conduct a thorough analysis, it is very important to offer a coherent and readable answer that is well organized and that has a smooth and logical flow. The answer must reflect a reasonable mastery of the required readings. Answers that are too generic and that can be provided by a layman with superficial knowledge of the material is not acceptable.

3- Academic honesty is extremely important and any suspected plagiarism (including copying material without citing it) will not be tolerated.

Information Governance in tourism and hospitlaity industry

You have recently been hired as a Chief Information Governance Officer (CIGO) in the tourism and hospitality industry. This is a newly created position and department within the organization that was founded on the need to coordinate all areas of the business and to provide governance of the information. You will need to hire for all positions within your new department.

The company has been in business for more than 50 years and in this time has collected vast amounts of data. Much of this data has been stored in hard copy format in filing cabinets at an offsite location but in recent times, collected business data is in electronic format stored in file shares. Customer data is being stored in a relational database, but the lack of administration has caused data integrity issues such as duplication. There are currently no policies in place to address the handling of data, business, or customers. The company also desires to leverage the marketing power of social media but has no knowledge of the types of policies or legal issues they would need to consider. You will also need to propose relevant metrics that should be collected to ensure that the information governance program is effective.

The CEO and Board of Directors have tasked you to develop a proposal (paper) that will give them the knowledge needed to make informed decisions on an enterprise-wide Information Governance program, addressing (at a minimum) all of these issues, for the company. 

Requirements:
The paper should include at a minimum the following sections:

a. Executive Summary (Abstract)

b. Literature review (2-3 pages)

c. Cloud Computing strategy

d. Conclusion

e. References

Scenario: Orwell’s Opus is a medium-sized local  bookstore in Global Springfield. The store sells books, stationery,  greeting cards, and literature-themed

Scenario: Orwell’s Opus is a medium-sized local  bookstore in Global Springfield. The store sells books, stationery,  greeting cards, and literature-themed T-shirts, and sales are good in  the store. CEO Quincy Orwell intends to expand the business to  additional locations and to have the store’s website updated for better  online sales as well. The website potential will be addressed in this  unit’s assignment. The collection of data both in the store and online  through the website has Orwell rather nervous; he understands the  classification of each piece of information needs to be better defined.

Research online to learn about the sensitivity of data and classification levels.

For your initial post:

Explain how you would organize sensitivity levels for this client.  Consider classifications such as high-medium-low, numbered levels, and  labels such as public, private, and confidential.

For each classification or category, provide examples (such as how you would label driver’s license numbers).

Lastly, mention data that should not be gathered for this scenario.

Since much of this post will be generated by your own creativity, do  not use in-text citation, but do include a full APA 7th edition  reference entry at the end of the post for at least one source that  provided you with some ideas.

1. What is your favorite form of a disk storage?  2. One of the most significant issues that can present

1. What is your favorite form of a disk storage? 

2. One of the most significant issues that can present to a project manager is the issue of barriers to effective team building.  Not only can these barriers derail the start of a project and the forming of the project team, they can also lead to conflicts later on in the project life cycle.  Describe the top potential barriers to effective team building and synthesize an approach/plan for how you would handle/overcome these barriers.

All written work must be submitted in the student’s own words with sources properly attributed in APA format.

IT Project Management and Risk

As discussed in the readings, IT projects have notoriously high failure rates. I would like you to discuss issues of IT project risk. Why do you think IT projects are so subject to failure? Are they really riskier than other projects? What impact does project risk have on organizational IT value?  What can organizations do to manage this risk?

Research: Search on the Internet or in the online Library for two  sources that explain various kinds of network cabling.

Research: Search on the Internet or in the online Library for two  sources that explain various kinds of network cabling. Ensure that the  sources are up to date and appropriate for master’s level work. This  part of the assignment must rely on source material, not personal  experience.

Coaxial cables

Twisted pair cables (including various types)

Fiber optics

Write: In 250–300 words, provide a paragraph about each  kind of cable on the above list. Include a description of each,  relative cost, and anything else that is important in making a final  decision about cabling. In a fourth paragraph, indicate which kind(s) of  cables would be your choice for this project, considering the amount of  cabling you might need to meet the topologies chosen, etc.

Do not use lists or tables; use only paragraphing. Do not quote from  your sources; write entirely in your own words. Use APA 7th edition  in-text citations to properly identify sources of your information,  remembering that every paragraph in which you use information from a  source needs citation, and any sentence with numbers/statistics needs  citation. At the end of your assignment document, include full APA 7th  edition reference entries.

Mobile device examples

The growth in the use of mobile devices, both by individuals and organizations,has been significant. 

Many IT practitioners believe that mobile devices are inherently less secure than other alternatives, but  their wide implementation requires support. 

Do you believe that mobile devices are inherently less secure than personal computers? What do you  believe is the most important type of security to implement on a mobile device?
