DescriptionTEC 5333 Management of Computer Technology
Reading Assignment 5 – Due @ 11:59p on Tuesday
Step Instructions
In the past few weeks, we have discussed Functional Business Systems as well as Data
Visualization and Geographic Information Systems. To complete this assignment, you
must write a paper at least one-page (500 words) in length (though you may write
more) by selecting from one of the following options:
(1) Select one of the case studies from Chapter 9 or Chapter 11 of our textbook. This
may include the “Opening Case” at the start of each chapter, one of the “I.T. at Work”
cases in either chapter, Case 9.2 (“Business Case: HSBC Combats Fraud in Split-Second
Decisions”) on page 297, or Case 11.2 (“Visualization Case: Are You Ready for Football”)
on page 353 and discuss the case and its relationship to technology, or compare and
contrast ideas raised in the reading. You may choose to address some of the questions
asked at the end of each case study to help guide your writing.
(2) You may select one of the following articles below and reflect on the technology
mentioned in the article or video in reference to what we have discussed in class.
a. Data Storytelling: How to Tell a Great Story with Data:
After reading through the article, discuss what it means to do storytelling through data.
How do you think it can be useful? How is data storytelling different from data
visualization? Consider how selecting certain data to include in storytelling might
impact how it is perceived. Is it possible that data storytelling can be manipulated to
persuade people? Lastly, How do you think you might use something like data
storytelling in a future career?
b. Using Data Visualization as a Reporting Tool Can Reveal Story’s Shape:
In this 2009 interview, a reporter interviews Sarah Cohen, a database administrator for
a major newspaper as well as a professor of Computational Journalism. After reading
the interview, discuss how much of what Cohen had to say back in 2009 has come true
today. Were there things she described in the interview that did not come to be as she
predicted? What things did she correctly predict? Lastly, if you were to make some
predictions about the way data visualization may work two decades from now, what do
you think might become possible, and normal, in terms of data visualization?
c. How GPS Works and Why GPS Devices May Stop Working:

Rather than a news article, this is an in-depth video, about 15 minutes long, that
explores the origins of GPS and explains how it works. Moreover, towards the end of
the video, it explains how, in 2019, there was the risk that many older GPS devices may
stop working. After watching the video, consider and discuss how GPS originated as a
system to be used by the military, but quickly found itself essential to business today.
Next, discuss the potential outcomes for businesses if something like the “week number
rollover,” an extensive solar flare event, or something similar were to disable worldwide
access to GPS for a day, a month, a year, or perhaps until GPS satellites could be
replaced. How might businesses react to losing access to GPS? How might we guard
against such potential loss?
Please be sure to list which case or article you are writing about
in your paper title!
Step Instructions
Your paper should be your own original writing. No copying and pasting from outside
sources will be permitted. If you use an idea that is not your own original thought
(such as information you received from an internet search), you must either
summarize it or put it inside of quotation marks and use an APA citation afterwards to
indicate where the idea came from. At the end of your paper, on a “References”
page, create an APA reference to the source. If you have any questions about how
this should look, consult your professor or the EIU Writing Center located in Coleman
Step Instructions
After you have finished and carefully proofread your writing, eliminated any copied and
pasted material, properly cited any outside sources with in-text citations and a
References sheet at the end of your paper in the APA stylization format, please include
a word count at the top of your paper by your name:

Please be sure to list which case or article you are writing about
in your paper title!
