COLLABORATION TECHNOLOGIES AND IT INFRASTRUCTURE

Assignment Overview

To support communications and collaboration, organizations make use of the IT architecture, which is defined by looking at different components. To afford communications, it is required that an IT infrastructure of people, hardware, software, and networks be in place. While there is a global culture of communications and collaboration, different countries have preferences how they attain communications and group cooperation. Similarly, groupware technology is more preferred in high performing companies than low performing ones.

Case Assignment

For Case 3, you will analyze the traffic gridlock case. Taking communication and collaboration into the next 20 years, Ford Motors has a vision to develop cars that rely on a network of communication systems. In the long term, Ford sees a radically different transportation landscape where pedestrians, bicycles, private cars, commercial and public transportation traffic will be woven into a single mobile network to save time, conserve resources, lower CO2 emissions, and improve safety.

  • What does Ford mean by “global gridlock”?
  • Brainstorm a few other ways in which an IT network could help to reduce global gridlock. Do not limit yourself to current mobile network capabilities.
  • If no action is taken far in advance of the forecasted car congestion, what do you foresee will happen?
