Question

can anyone explain this to me

During the recent swift progress of network technology and

economic globalization, modern industry has been trending towards the increasingly precise division of labor. Consequently, individual enterprises focus on developing their core capabilities and outsource non-core affairs to other partners or suppliers with different professional capabilities to upgrade their competitive advantage by applying these external and special sources and technology knowledge. On the other hand, consumer-behavior is widely changed because of the increasing consumers’ ideology; hence, product lifecycles are becoming shorter and every enterprise must offer diverse and custom made products to immediately satisfy consumer needs. These pressures drive enterprises to actively invest in supply chain management (SCM), and to establish strategic alliances against their competitors. Generally, SCM occurs when several enterprises establish their own supply chain. These enterprises must find more efficient suppliers to increase supply chain competitiveness. Among various available suppliers, how to choose more collaborative suppliers who can develop long-term relationships is a key issue in establishing a supply chain and enhancing its efficiency

Question

In Chapter 2 we are learning about the benefits of enterprise applications. ERP, SCM and CRM programs are capable

of integrating an organization, increasing supply chain visibility, creating efficient flow of information throughout and organization and improving customer relations. So, why isn’t every organization taking advantage of these systems?

Well, according to the META Group, on average 70% of all IT-related projects fail to meet their objectives (Lewis 2001). Newer estimates suggest that around 50% of IT projects require major alterations by the time they are completed (Marr 2016). Large and small companies alike experience failures during SCM, CRM and ERP implementation. During Week 8, we will cover project management, which is a crucial part of software implementation success. For now, let’s focus on understanding why these projects failed.

1. Choose one of the articles below about IT implementation failures at well-known businesses and briefly describe their experience with enterprise application implementation, including what type of enterprise application they were trying to implement. Why did you think they failed? What lessons about technology integration, implementation and management are most important for future business people and knowledge workers (You!) to learn from this failure.

Question

Business Case and Proposal for Project Selection

For

convenience purposes, please do not accept question, if cannot meet the swift dateline of . Thank you kindly.

You work for Centervale Apparel, a large clothing manufacturing firm. Centervale Apparel has budgeted $9.7 million for new technology initiatives in the coming year but the project requests currently in the queue for next year total about $15 million. Your boss, the executive director of operations, has asked you to put together a proposal for this project to replace legacy order fulfillment technologies by implementing a supply chain management (SCM) system. Your boss wants to ensure this project will be prioritized over other projects on the list and will be implemented in the coming year. Use the following data to prepare a proposal using a balanced scorecard approach to demonstrate the project’s value to Centervale Apparel.

Here is your brief:

Business Problem: The order fulfillment team has been using several legacy technology systems to manage inventory and distribution. The current systems do not work together, requiring redundant information input and processing. Because of the redundant processes, work is duplicated requiring multiple data entry points and sometimes results in inaccurate and irreconcilable data. There is a constant overage or shortage of supply due to the time it takes for data to get from one point to another. This causes unhappy customers and inventory carrying costs that could be avoided.

Project Description: Replace legacy order fulfillment technologies by implementing a SCM system.

Project Cost: The project will cost approximately $1.2 million including infrastructure and resources to complete the implementation and $250,000 annually to support and maintain the new system with a ten-year lifecycle for the system.

Project Benefit: It is estimated that the implementation of a supply chain management system will improve the order fulfillment processing time and reduce inventory-carrying costs. Implementing the SCM system will also enable the retirement of several legacy systems. Estimated annual cost savings are:

  • Data entry staff reduced from 10 FTE to 8 FTE = $100,000/yr savings
  • Reduction in inventory carrying costs = $300,000/yr savings
  • Improved order fulfillment = 10–20% decrease in order to delivery time. This will improve customer satisfaction and retention
  • Improved data accuracy
  • Legacy system maintenance retirement savings = $100,000/yr

Using the information that details the primary business goals for the coming year, you will need to demonstrate how implementing the SCM system will help achieve the business objectives.

Note: Customers are retail companies who order from this clothing manufacturer. Assume a ten-year lifecycle for the SCM system.

Research methods of developing proposals by applying the balanced scorecard approach. Select two scholarly resources for use in this assignment. You will use these resources to justify your recommendations.

The proposal should include the following:

  • Describe the measureable value. This should include a cost-benefit analysis, such as payback period or ROI that relies on tangible measures of organizational value through cost savings, revenue enhancements, or improvements in the speed, quality, or efficiency of key processes that help achieve competitive advantage (note the difference between tangible and intangible measures in this proposal).
  • Evaluate and choose alternatives. Make sure to identify any alternatives to the project implementation and provide a justification for each.
  • Complete a risk assessment of all risks associated with implementing the project using an enterprise risk management (ERM) model.
  • Describe total cost of ownership and include descriptions of implementation project and ongoing maintenance costs.
  • Explain the benefits of the project, which include tangible and intangible benefits.
  • Fully justify a recommendation with a compelling proposal that aligns to the business goals.

Write a 6–7-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

Question

In a three- to five-page paper (not including the title and references pages), address the

following:

  1. Describe OCBC’s unique approach to talent management and development.
  2. Compare OCBC’s approach to talent management and development to other organizations you are familiar with (e.g., current or past employers, a family business).
  3. Explain how OCBC’s approach to talent management and employee development been a primary contributing factor to the firm’s success.
  4. Evaluate the extent to which OCBC’s approach to talent management and development fits other organizations or industries, including some limitations if applied elsewhere without modification.

Conduct some additional internet research on OCBC, and examine how OCBC has performed recently—what has it done more of, less of, or differently from in the area of human resource management. Use this information to support your paper in addition to cited sources from the textbook; you must also use at least two scholarly sources.

Recently named the world’s strongest bank for the second straight year, OCBC Bank leads the way not only through its disciplined approach towards credit and risk management but also its active talent development initiatives. Eric Ong, Head of Emerging Business, Global Enterprise Banking, OCBC Bank, shares how the bank’s leaders make the personal effort to groom their talent

With a history of more than 80 years in Singapore, OCBC is a bank centred on people. The Bank has come a long way from its first days of helping rice merchants continue to trade times of war. This is evident in its sterling performance in recent years. In May this year, Bloomberg Markets magazine announced OCBC as the world’s strongest bank. Also, one in two businesses currently operating in Singapore has an account with the Bank.

The success of the bank is built on the back of sound business policies and active talent management and development.

For instance, within the first three days of a company being incorporated, OCBC will contact them about opening a corporate account with the bank. The Bank practises the same proactivity when it comes to managing and developing its people, says Eric Ong, Head of Emerging Business, Global Enterprise Banking, OCBC Bank.

Career framework

OCBC takes training and development seriously as human capital is the Bank’s key differentiator. Investment in this area helps to build the capabilities of employees to deliver superior performance.

Learning is part of the Bank’s ongoing business strategy and helps t win-win situation for us and our staff, says Ong. By aligning employees’ learning objectives with business goals, we help employees succeed in building a career and not just a job with OCBC.

OCBC encourages its employees to take charge of their own careers through the Bank’s ‘Career Best’ programme, launched in 2002. This programme involves helping employees evaluate their strengths and career orientation, and finding the best fit between their talents and OCBC’s needs.

The Bank also introduced the ‘OCBC Learning-3’ programme in 2007. A structured three-year development programme for employees, OCBC Learning-3 clearly delineates learning roadmaps for individual employees during their first three years of service with the Bank.

Underscoring our commitment to training, we have created the OCBC Learning Academy and also dedicated an entire floor at the OCBC Centre, called The Learning Space @ OCBC, for the sole purpose of learning and development, says Ong.

In addition to the typical classroom training, the Bank has also tapped on learning technologies like eLearning and virtual classrooms. Through the use of Web 2.0 and video conferencing technology the training programmes are now able to reach out to employees in different geographies.

Employees are given the first opportunity to learn of and apply for job-openings within the OCBC group through the Internal Job-Application Programme, in which after 18 to 24 months, an employee has the open to move into another role.

We want to encourage employees to continually acquire new experiences, knowledge, skills and competencies, and allow individuals to fulfil their career aspirations at different stages of their careers, Ong explains.

This is especially so for Gen Y staff who constantly seek change and want progression – something to look forward to. They need to feel challenged and recognised for the work they do. If they are ‘stuck in a rut’, performance dips.

In banking, employees need foundation, says Ong. I was once a bank teller. I then moved on to typing bank drafts and the like.

Leaders walk the talk too. In my business review, one part is financial numbers and business initiatives, while a large part (50%-60%) is based on the human resources, says Ong.

Management Challenges
To deal with the aforementioned dilemmas, Wendy Mcdonald, Executive V.P. of
the Supply Chain Planning for Falcon, has assembled her management taskforce
group, including managers from the departments of sales and marketing, information
technology (IT), and logistics. One of the intriguing options brought up by these
managers is the outsourcing of its ICT solutions. Wendy grabs her pad of yellow sticky
notes and then starts jotting down the potential pros and cons of ICT outsourcing after
her taskforce group’s most recent brainstorming session before she pondering it further.
This is her list of discussion points:
Advantage of ICT Outsourcing
Disadvantages of ICT Outsourcing
Cost savings
Lack of control
Improved cash flow
Lack of flexibility
Quicker customer response
Potential loss of core competency
Immediate access to the latest technology
Difficulty in customizing services
Reduced risk of information technology
Instability and lengthier learning curve for
obsolescence
understanding customer needs
Because Wendy is unsure of the accuracy of this list and her managers continue to
argue about the prospect of ICT outsourcing, she still gets confused and is undecided
about Falcon’s future course of action.

maximise the utility and welfare of the country. You have been tasked with analysing replacement technology for Australia’s east coast early tsunami warning system. The current system is outdated and lacks the range of detection of newer systems. The current system is also very expensive to maintain and operate. There are currently two designs on the market that offer a suitable replacement solution. To replace the current system it is anticipated that 1000 units of either of the Hello Tsunami (HT) or Big Wave Warning System (BWWS) be used to cover the same detection area as the existing system.Please see the attachement.

Question

Geologists rely on new technology more and more. Some new technology allows us to model the earth’s surface, like

the model you see in the Google Earth tool, and some describe the area below the earth’s surface!

Which method of investigation allows geophysicists to best visualize or model a buried magma chamber beneath a caldera or crater formed on the earth’s surface?

Select one:

a. InSAR

b. Seismic tomography

c. Structure-from-Motion

d. LiDAR

Question text:

Deformation of the earth’s crust happens above a buried magma chamber.

Volcanos, fissures, craters, and calderas are all types of surface deformation.

As the magma chamber fills up, it expands like a balloon and pushes up on the ground surface. In response, the ground over the magma chamber stretches (again just like the rubber of a balloon!) and develops cracks.

Imagine two people are standing facing one another, and then a wide, broad crack in the earth’s surface grows between them. Imagine that crack is just like the crack shown by Kyle at 15 minutes in the video on Kilauea.

Do the two people on either side of this crack move closer together or further apart?

Hint: draw a picture to help you visualize this situation!

Select one:

a. Neither, so the amount of crustal deformation is negligible

b. Closer together, so the deformation is due to compression of the crust.

c. Further apart, so the deformation is due to extension of the crust.

Question text

Often geologists use global positioning system (GPS) receivers fixed to earth’s surface to measure deformation. Unlike your smartphone, these particular GPS receivers are literally boed to the ground.

The picture below is an example of a permanent GPS receiver:

Because the receiver is fixed to the ground, if one moves—then the ground itself moved! This change could indicate a few things, including tectonic plate motion, landsliding, or the bulging of a magma chamber!

Geologists can also pound 2 stakes into the ground, and then monitor their location during surveys.

It is useful to place 2 stakes or GPS receivers on either side of a volcano or an earthquake fau to monitor any crustal motion that occurs.

Which of the following events resued in stretching of the crust such that the GPS receivers or markers move further apart?

Select one:

a. Filling and swelling of the magma chamber below Pu’u O’o Crater on the island of Hawaii.

b. Any quiet period of inactivity between 2 earthquakes on the San Andreas fau.

c. Emptying and deflation of the magma chamber below Pu’u O’o Crater on the island of Hawaii.

d. A quiet period of inactivity for the Mt. Waialeale caldera on the island of Kauai.

A number of studies indicate periods of deformation on the floor of Yellowstone caldera and outside of the caldera. The total stretching or bulging over the past couple decades amounts to about 70 centimeters of swelling!

What process does this deformation most likely reflect?

Select one:

a. Earth tides in northwestern Wyoming

b. Temperature changes due to solar radiation.

c. Magma filling the chamber buried below the floor of the caldera.

d. Magma leaving the chamber buried below the floor of the caldera.

Database Models and Legacy Systems

Databases evolved from flat file systems. As technology advanced, the limitations of flat files became evident. The database model has evolved to meet the business needs of the time. As the information age evolved, organizations realized there was a need for a different type of management system, one that could store large amounts of data, retrieve the data quickly, secure the data, and share the data. Hierarchical and network database models evolved first, followed by relational and object-relational database models.

However, not all organizations have moved with the times. Often, older database systems still work well, and the cost and time needed to convert to a newer database model prohibit the change. A legacy system is one that uses old, outdated technology. Many businesses and government agencies continue to use legacy database systems consisting of older hierarchical and network technologies.

To prepare for this Discussion, identify a legacy system in a business or government agency (federal, state, or local). Many online sites can be used to identify existing legacy systems. With these thoughts in mind, respond to the following prompts:

  • Should the agency continue using a legacy system? What are the benefits and drawbacks of continuing to use the legacy database?
  • Discuss the needs of the agency and consider the benefits and limitations of each database model.

With these thoughts in mind, make a recommendation to keep the existing system or to upgrade to a new design based on your answers to the questions above.

about analyzing but I’m stuck.

Childhood is the time that shapes us as individuals. It is when we use our experiences to shape our beliefs, how and what we learn based on our observations. Technology is now changing that. Children no longer have to observe, think, or consider. Technology is there to do that for us. We have an overwhelming amount of information readily available to us. Technology is beneficial but can also be harmful. Technology is taking away children’s imagination and the need for problem solving. Children are no longer are developing the attention required for activities such as reading which gives way to critical thinking and imagination. Children do not have to develop their memory to remember things because technology allows information to be instantaneous. In this technological world, children need to have a balance to be able to fully develop their brains to function with or without technology.

Book reading is like scuba diving in which the diver is submerged in a quiet, visually restricted, slow-paced setting with few distractions and, as a resu, is required to focus narrowly and think deeply on the limited information that is available to them.

Thinking encompasses so many aspects of who our children are and what they do, from observing, learning, remembering, questioning, and judging to innovating, arguing, deciding, and acting.

In contrast, the rise of the Internet is strengthening our ability to scan information rapidly and efficiently.

Question

Due Week 7 and worth 120 points

With the merger of your company with a muinational company, you have come

to realize that progressive solutions are necessary to defray some of the associated information technology costs. Company executives believe that using cloud technology and virtualization is becoming the standard for companies that are engaged in Internet-based technologies. Your company is on the verge of global marketing and competition; therefore, your company needs to make smarter decisions and improve global business performance. Cloud technology and virtualization are believed to provide business insights without enormous infrastructure enhancements. The executive board is aware of the profound benefits of cloud technology and virtualization but is apprehensive because they are unfamiliar with the look and feel of the technology. The executive team is interested in your recommendations and eagerly waiting for your forward-thinking viewpoint.

Section 1: Design Document

Write a four to six (4-6) page design document in which you:

  1. Support the need for the use of cloud technology and virtualization within the company.
  2. Assess expected cost savings in hardware infrastructure.
  3. Determine the possible reductions of human capital that can be realized from implementing cloud and virtualization technologies.
  4. Create a diagram through the use of Microsoft Visio or an open source aernative such as Dia to illustrate how cloud and virtualization technology could align with the company’s business processes and assist with attainment of organizational goals. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length but must be included in the design document appendix.
  5. Provide a compelling recommendation for solution providers and partners that could help the company secure a firm competitive advantage by using cloud and virtualization technologies.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
  • Include charts or diagrams created in MS Visio or Dia as an appendix of the design document. All references to these diagrams must be included in the body of the design document.

Section 2: Revised Project Plan

Use Microsoft Project to:

  1. Update the project plan (summary and detail) template, from Project Deliverable 3: Database and Data Warehousing Design, with three to five (3-5) new project tasks each consisting of five to ten (5-10) subtasks.

Question

Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that respond to

the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

Use the library and Internet to find information about enterprise architectures and distributed systems.

Most corporate systems are distributed systems, meaning they are made up of a number of different components that are not necessarily located in the same place. If you have a home computer system with a shared printer and Wi-Fi, you have a simple distributed system. If you have muiple computers physically connected together, you have a more complicated distributed system. Some companies and government agencies have hundreds, if not thousands of computers linked together which are massive distributed systems. The technology employee’s use to access these computers is also part of the distributed system.

The establishment of technology standards for an organization is called the Enterprise Technical Architecture. This is a portion of the Enterprise Architecture. An Enterprise Architecture is a definition and standard for all aspects of an organization. Both private industry and government agencies have developed Enterprise Architectures which define the data, processes, organization, technology, product lifecycles and strategies of the organization. For an organization to be effective it must develop standards, particularly in technology so communication among departments is seamless, consistent, and efficient. By standardizing all aspects of the organization through the development of an Enterprise Architecture, organizations find it much easier to provide systems that meet the business needs effectively.

Compare and contrast the meaning of enterprise architecture versus distributed system.

Provide at least 1 example each of enterprise architecture and a distributed system.

Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of distributed systems in a business environment.
