This Case is to cover team processes and the IT infrastructure to support team processes. For the IT infrastructure, refer to Module 3, Lecture 1: Business IT Networks and Components.
The IT infrastructure consists of components identified as hardware, software, communication systems, data resources, and people. These components apply to information systems, and in Module 3, you will be analyzing collaboration systems. You case will present findings on the IT infrastructure to support team processes discussing hardware, software, communication systems, data resources, and people for the selected tool or application, and providing a comparison across the various group collaboration tools.
To complete this assignment:
(1) Choose a collaboration tool that has functions beyond video conferencing such as Trello, Slack, Asana, Favro, etc. that help a team complete projects, communicate, share documents and keep versions of them, and other useful things.
(2) Then, assess that software application’s ability to meet the needs of a team in terms of: hardware needed to support it, software it may need to connect with, communication support, data resources it uses or provides, and how people on a team are supported by it. You are focusing on Infrastructure, not the app’s various abilities themselves.
The conclusion area should contain summary thoughts, including pros/cons and recommendations.
