A Survival Guide for Business Managers
1:After reading the article “top 10 concepts every software engineer should know” a lot of key points stood out to me. But one that really did was Internet security. As things become more advanced in our world security and the advancement of it is also vital. As things become more and more convenient it is also becoming easier to hack into our devices and still or important information. I have seen and heard of increased identity theft, because of all of this. I think there are a number of things we could do to amplify our Internet security. the second thing that caught my attention was algorithmic complexity. This is definitely going to be my biggest challenge going into this field, retaining that information is definitely my biggest obstacle ahead.
From what I’ve learned so far algorithmic complexity is a big party of software engineering. its pretty much the heart of it. The algorithm is the middle man between the input and the output. If it is not entered properly your output will not be displayed correctly. I also learned you don’t need to bulk up your algorithms and that can be a common mistake people make is putting unnecessary coding in a software. I hope tat I can get the hang of it all, and definitely leave out the unnecessary stuff.
2:I have had my own experience with someone hacking into my own personal device. I used to own a smart thermostat that I was able to control with my smart phone and my tablet. It was a very convenient set up I was able to control the temperature of my home which overall allowed me to decrease my electric bill. when I would leave home I would turn it up and when I was about 10 min away from my home I would turn it back down. it was very convenient. however that convenience ended up being a bit costly. My tablet was hacked and although I didn’t suffer a break in my thermostat was shorted which was costly to replace. But my credit card info was also stolen from my tablet. Its crazy to think that because two devices are linked via wifi or Blue tooth what effects one can actually effect another. I think that as our devices become “smarter” our security needs to increase as well. I think one way we could do this as a programmer is to give the option to set up pass codes to access certain apps or software’s. I also think that when it comes to home security there is too much trust in smart systems although its nice to have those and the convenience of them its still important to fall back on an old dead bolt and alarm system even if the old system isn’t connected to call 911 the sound can still detour a thief.
3:Hi Shirin, you did bring up some great points, although I think some might disagree with you. Morally I think there is good intention surrounding your suggestion, but I think some could say its an invasion of privacy. There are a lot of pros and cons to white hat hacking. You would definitely be doing a good deed for the community and helping solve a potential problem and threat, but if caught you could still be penalized for breaching someone’s rights to privacy. I think the companies themselves need to hire people who can find these back doors that hackers are taking and issue out updates for the users to install that can fix these problems. security is becoming a big issue with these new smart devices in our homes, I feel its the creators job to make them as safe as possible or else they wouldn’t be delivering a good product.
4:You often hear discussions about “The Cloud” and I wanted to get some discussions going to help understand it better specifically Software as a Service. Instead of installing and running complex apps locally on your PC they are delivered over the Internet via web browser or thin client. On my day to day job we use Salesforce for example and pay for a subscription and since it’s delivered via the web, our company doesn’t maintain any infrastructure or track individual software licenses. Additionally, we don’t have to patch the software which saves millions of dollars each year. Why do they call SaaS “on demand” software versus the perpetual software that we typically own? Companies do have the option to run on premise or hybrid versions of SaaS if they have security issues with the public Internet but you could have trade-offs with flexibility. Name a few advantages and disadvantages of one versus the other and do you think that this will be the norm going forward? Any thoughts?

Analyze Case Study II
5: “The CliptomaniaTM Web Store”
Discuss the strategic issues faced by the company in launching and developing their business venture. Provide your recommendations and analysis. Summarize your findings in a two
page paper using proper APA formatting.
Cliptomania, LLC, is a web store that is owned and operated by the Santo family. The family operated business specializes in selling clip-on earrings on the Internet from their home. Their non pierced earrings are sold throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand (Brown, DeHayes, Hoffer, Martin, & Perkins, 2012). The Santo family found an ideal position in the market that was underserved and essentially turned it into a feasible e-business. My analysis of Cliptomania reveals that it achieved a lot of success – from the Santos proactivity in identifying a gap in the market to offering high quality products and services to customers.
Although the Santos had initial success they, however, faced a few strategic issues in the beginning. One of the initial issues they faced was their lack of experience in setting up a web store. When Jim and Candy first got the idea of Cliptomania going they thought it would be, sort of, a side-line activity – one that they could tend to in their spare time. Little did they know that they would have to devote a lot of time and effort in just setting up the web site. Jim found several alternatives and they went with contracting with a vendor to host the store. According to Brown et, al (2012), the Santos contracted with Yahoo to establish their Cliptomania Yahoo store.
Yahoo provided templates for the homepage and the items being sold, navigation of the site, and basically making it easy for the customers to add or delete items from their shopping cart. Another initial problem that the Santos were face with was finding “sources from which they could get earrings to offer in the Cliptomania store” (Brown, et al, 2012, pp. 310). Many of such sources were not available and some were just not helpful. Eventually they were able to build some mutually beneficial relationships, which ultimately evolved.
In 2006 when the Santos decided to change their website, they encountered issues such as a drop in the search engine rankings. The drop was also as a result of a drop in customers; customers no longer found it easy to locate Cliptomania when they searched clip-on earrings (Rosen, 2000). When Cliptomania switched to the new URL Cliptomania.net it caused major confusion with the search engines and they fell far off the relevancy ranking for the search engines. Cliptomania was losing sales so they eventually went back to the original name of Cliptomania.com.
I found a few recommendations and analysis that could have solved some of the issues the Santos faced. The Santos needed to identify who will buy their products online and make it easy for those consumers to locate their website. They also needed to ensure that their website had high visibility online and that could go hand in hand with making it easier for customers to locate their website. Their marketing plan lacked the essentials to reach their target market. In a effort to cut cost (in every way possible), they Santos opted for cheaper way of doing business, which proved disastrous for a period of time. The Santos can also ensure that the content of their website are updated more frequently.

As the new communications manager for International Gadgets, you have assembled a team of technical communicators with experience in communicating with various audiences in a business setting. Research & Development (R&D) has created a new product that it believes will revolutionize the industry. But the department needs the buy-in of several levels of the corporation to launch the new product. First, upper management needs to understand the product and how it will help the company expand before it will approve the funding needed to mass-produce the product.
Sales and Marketing need to understand the product so it can be properly marketed. Technical Support needs to thoroughly know the product in order to support it to the customer base. And all employees need to know as much about the product as possible so that they can build excitement about the proposed launch. The head of R&D has come to you for your help in building excitement and buy-in throughout the company for the new product. Create a memo to your team that discusses the following:
The possible channels of communication that can be used to communicate information about the product to various levels of the company, and how they could be used
Your suggestions for which channels will be appropriate for which audiences and why
Plans for how your team will communicate and collaborate on this project for the purpose of choosing the best channels of communications for various audiences in the company
