risks are associated with implementing a BYOD policy, and how can these risks be addressed? Consider how BYOD risks differ from those in a corporate-owned mobile strategy.
The first risk associate with a BYOD policy is the added costs associated with adding multiple phone lines to the overall platform. As the firm has over 210 associates, it will be very costly to implement a blackberry, android, and iPhone platform that accommodates all the investment personnel within the company. As such, the firm will incur the risk of increasing costs at the expense of familiarity with mobile devices. The investment personnel within the firm are using multiple applications on differing devices for their clients. Some applications are tablet-based while others exist on mobile phones. By allowing a BYOD policy, the firm will be utilizing disparate systems and operating software to engage and attract clients. This form of business may be detrimental…… [Read More]
Incompatible devices – There is a distinct possibility that employees may choose to utilize devices which are incompatible with an organization’s network and security infrastructure.
Personal Usage – If employees are allowed to use their personal devices in work settings, there is the potential to use them for personal use during allotted work time. They may have specific programs on these devices conducive to doing so.
Maintenance – There can become pecuniary disputes between management and employees regarding the maintenance of personal devices used for work. Employees may want to subsidize battery replacements and other maintenance.
Outside of Firewall – The primary security issue is that these devices are unprotected once they leave the physical confines of an organization and its firewall, rendering organizational data vulnerable.
Theft – Theft is a principal concern with BYOD policies, since if personal devices are stolen users may be able to access…… [Read More]

Walmart Inc.: Social Media Solutions Implementation Plan
Social Media Solutions Implementation Plan: Walmart Inc.
Walmart, the world's largest retailer, faces a number of productivity issues that if not resolved could affect the company's ability to compete in future. Two of these have to do with worker relations and failure to adjust the company's business model to reflect customers' needs. This text presents a plan detailing how social media technologies could be used to resolve these issues.

EMC: Strategic IT Plan
The corporate IT governance environment of EMC Corporation was analyzed in the previous papers and it was indicated that the firm is challenged with issues related to data security, data mobility, and data backup for cloud customers.

For data mobility, it was recommended that EMC should adopt an efficient data mobility model to decrease end-to-end delay in data mobility (Camp, Boleng & Davies, 2002). Gauss-Markov Mobility Model was recommended as the optimal model of data mobility for the firm. emote data integrity standards and state as well as national level data back legal provisions were recommended as solution for data back-up issue.

Best Practices in Administering Social Media
There is a growing body of research that confirms that companies of all sizes and types can realize a wide array of benefits from the use of social media networks. While the types and applications of social media experience constant change, social media content such as blogs and microblogs have become some of the more popular social media tools that have emerged in recent years. Although there a number of benefits and advantages that can be achieved through the use of social media resources, there is a concomitant danger that inappropriate or misguided content can backfire…… [Read More]
Google might be one of the most iconic and most cataclysmic company of the last fifteen years or so. Starting as a simple search engine, Google has been able to evolve more rapidly and with more success than any other company imaginable. When it comes to the future, one can only look at the history and background of Google to provide clues as to how the company is likely to evolve. This paper examines Google's fundamental strategy for growth which has been to earn, entice, expand and experiment (Faktor, 2013) and discusses how nearly every step and branch of their services, marketing efforts, and company organization falls under this greater umbrella.
Earning intensely has been one of the major elements that has long allowed Google to grow as rapidly as it has and to experiment in so many different markets. Google makes 95% of its profits simple from advertising (Faktor,…… [Read More]
BJ's Wholesale Enterprise Architecture
It is necessary to develop a business environment that shelters all applications under one roof. As such, the business environment will minimize the average cost of running a business and ensure that systems are not redundant. A desirable business environment is one that merges I.T orientations to a business environment without the two contradicting each other. Subsequent effort to improvise this system has seen software developers come up with responsive system, EP systems, or Point of Sales amongst others. However, these systems fail to provide a comprehensive business approach. After all, quality counts than quantity and having many systems does not denote proper service orientation. For this reason, researchers affiliated to IBM developed the MDM to ensure that various business systems are well and fully managed and thus, eliminating the occurrence of redundancy.

Organizational behavior is an important concept in the modern business environment since business organizations have experienced significant development and growth from the conventional times. This growth and development of business organizations that has contributed to the significance of the concept of organizational behavior has occurred in relation to organizational structure, people, and operations. As a relatively new discipline in business management, organizational behavior primarily focuses on group dynamics, execution of leadership, organizational functioning, and interactions between people in an organization. The emergence of this discipline in the 20th Century is attributed to its evolution from the conventional classical management theories to a complex concept and idea.
Definition of the Concept and Emerging Issues
Organizational behavior has widely been described as an academic field of study that focuses on explaining, understanding, forecasting, and managing human behavior within an organization or business environment. From a personal position, organizational behavior is the study…… [Read More]
One of the biggest risks that companies face is advanced persistent threats.
Advanced persistent threats can be very harmful to a company and can come in various forms as hackers have a variety of methods in their tool belt; however, on the receiving end, companies should be prepared for cyber attacks -- and yet they often are not, because of carelessness, neglect, lack of oversight, regulation, accountability, transparency, review, and an ability to conduct proper assessment. APTs are happening all the time and can be traced to origin locations all over the world (Norse, 2016). Cyber security should be therefore a number priority for any and all businesses that utilize information systems software and hardware. As the Norse Map shows, countries in both the East and the West are waging cyber war against one another; cyber security is therefore a real going concern for all (Norse, 2016).
