Need data in regards to what drugs/suppliers are most commonly needed on hand, when they are needed and in what quantity in order to have good service

Adequate to Adequate + I like the three technologies you've recommended to employ (TPS, MIS, DSS). I like how for DSS ( and in part for MIS) you've explained the intend purpose of employing such a technology/system. I would have liked to have seen you do the same with your TPS recommendation (e.g. gone more in depth).   Also, take it one step further and tell me WHAT are the implications of employing such technologies? How do they help you realize your operational goals/business strategy, and how do they ensure strategic IT- business alignment?

MIS: with provide a summary report of what was needed in the past - shows fluctuation depending on time of year and age of patient

DSS - help doctors and staff make decisions about what drugs and vaccinations to have on hand

Data regarding hiring of doctors - what to look for and where to look to have doctors that will provide the best service - well rounded doctors

Adequate + to Good -   Thank you for using a coherent structure to lay out your answers. It made it easy for me to understand your mindmap! I like how you've justified the technologies and systems you've chosen and have shown me EXPLICTLY, WHAT the implications are of employing these technologies (e.g. what their purpose is).   This is EXACTLY what I want to see. Now, just take it one step further and tell me/show me HOW this fulfills your operational goals AND/OR ensures business strategy-IT strategy alignment. Lastly, substantiate your "other systems" by explaining to me what their role will be in fulfilling your information needs/materializing your business strategy (e.g. "Microsoft Access, Internal Servers").

Adequate I like the three Information Technlogies/Systems you've recommended ( MIS, DSS, Datawarehouse). I especially liked how you explained the function of MIS within your organization: the informational needs that would be fulfilled by employing such a technology, and how it fulfilled your operational objectives/ business strategy.   This comprehensive train of reasoning is EXACTLY what I want to see. It's a pity you did not do this for DSS & Datawarehouse. I would have liked to have seen this done for both the DSS and Datawarehouse nodes.   Remember, recommending technology is one thing. Being able to show the strategic importance it has to play in realizing your business strategy is quite another. If you as management don't know what the strategic implications are for employing a certain technology, then you will never be able to truly tap into the VALUE CREATION OPPORTUNITIES that management can realize from leveraging technology appropriately.

Text Mining: go through resumes and cover letters to extract information that may be useful to employers

Use of Data Warehouse to store information about past "matches" between workers and employers as well as past job posts and if they were matched with a worker or not.

Adequate - to Adequate   I like the myriad of technologies/systems you have recommended to employ, but be weary of throwing in the "entire kitchen sink." Firstly, I don't think you have the monitory ( and other ) resources to implement this entire suite of technologies. Thus, I think you should first prioritze which systems are the most important to DataMed, and then see which combination of systems can you employ, that when operated together, will fulfill the information requirements you so need.   On the plus side, I clearly saw from your mindmap that you understood what the uses were of each technology, and how they would operate in your business.   Now take it one step further and show me how the technologies and systems you've chosen fulfill your operational goals AND/OR ensures business strategy-IT strategy alignment (e.g. what is the purpose of employing these technologies? THINK BIG PICTURE).

Adequate to Adequate + Thank you for using a coherent structure to lay out your answers. It made it easy for me to understand your mindmap! I agree with the Information Technologies/Systems you've recommended. However, you've failed to make it explicitly clear what informational needs these systems will fulfill.   For example, what "managerial or in-company decisions" will an MIS typically fulfill in this context? Always make sure that the INTENDED PURPOSE for each technology/system is apparent. In some cases you've done this, so thank you.   Under DSS, what "investent decisions" will become more reliable? Don't list generic benefits. Show me HOW these technologies will help YOUR Business specifically. Show me the role they will play in fulfilling/executing upon your business strategy.

Adequate   I like and agree with the technologies you've selected and recommended.  I like how you've justified the MIS/DSS systems you have chosen ( e.g. " Inventory control and " Sales Managment System") and have shown me EXPLICTLY, WHAT the implications are of employing these technologies (e.g. what their purpose is). This is EXACTLY what I want to see. Please do this for the other systems you've recommended, and then take it one step further and tell me/show me HOW this fulfills your operational goals AND/OR ensures business strategy-IT strategy alignment.   Personally, I would have liked to have seen you leverage your DSS for more strategic purposes ( e.g. Business Intelligence and Building your Key Performance Indicators). Have a look, and see how you can incorporate this functionality into your project since it will enable you to monitor the "lifeblood and health" of your business in a continious, ever-evolving manner.

Adequate to Adequate + I like the three Information Technologies you've recommended( DSS, TPS, MIS). I like how you've attempted to show how by employing these systems, your operational goals/business strategy can be fulfilled.   You've hinted at it in some instances, but I want to see WAY MORE of this. For example, when you explain "Demand Forecasting..." ---> "Knowing this we could allocate funds...." This is EXACTLY the kind of rationale and reasoning I want to see you employ for each technology you recommend.   Show me/Explicitly explain how each IT can fulfill your informational needs and what are the implications of doing so( e.g. strategic alignment? IT- Business Strategy Alignment etc.)

Weak + To Adequate - I like the three Information Technologies you've recommended (TPS for Operations, MIS for  management control, and DSS for forecasting). However, you've failed to tell me HOW employing these systems will fulfill your information needs, and achieve your business strategy/operational goals.   Remember to make the link clear.For example, under MIS you've said you want to "produce reports to make business decisions for the future." What KIND of business decisions are these? Right now the technologies you've recommended and their intended functions are generic.

Adequate   I like the myriad of technologies/systems you've recommended (TPS, MIS, DSS, Operational DB, Textmining). I don't think you have the monitory ( and other ) resources however to implement this entire suite of resources. Thus, I think you should first prioritze which systems are the most important to Workforce, and then see which combination of systems you can employ. Do it in such a manner, that when operated together, these systems adequately fulfill the information requirements you so need.   On the plus side, I clearly saw from your mindmap that you understood what the uses are of each technology, and how they would operate in your business. I especially liked how you reasoned out/explained your rationale regarding the deployment of a MIS. This is EXACTLY what I would've liked to have seen you do when explaining the use/PURPOSE of the other technologies.   Remember to always take it one step further and show me how the technologies and systems you've chosen fulfill your operational goals AND/OR ensures business strategy-IT strategy alignment.

Text mining from resumes, key words: skills, qualification, etc. And from job posts: skills, requirements, etc.

TPS: billing clients, payroll, reports.

MIS: generate the CRM info from our clients. historical analysis: ratings, job matching, etc. Takes tps data and it analyzes profitability of companies within the range of hire ability. look at sales people/managers (in our company)

DSS: will determine where do we have to look for skills, evaluate trends,.

To support the information needs you came up with in Phase 3, what type of information technologies need to be in place. What else needs to be in place to be able to use the systems?
