Technology Selection Exercise. This discussion question is part of the Analysis of Alternatives evaluation exercise. This week, you are acting in the role of “staff members” who are writing technology selection recommendations for consideration by the Chief Technology Officer and Chief Security Officer. They will, in turn, choose the best of the bestfor presentation to the company’s senior managers as part of the approval and funding process for pilot implementations and other formal evaluations of the selected technologies. 1. On FRIDAY: Post your draft Technology Selection Paper as a reply to this Discussion Topic. (You may make changes to this draft prior to submitting it for grading via your assignment folder.) 2. Review the papers posted by your peers. From these papers, choose two (2) different papers (technology alternatives) to recommend for further study (“selection”). Post your recommendations as follow-up postings to your peers (two separate threads). Make sure that you EXPLAIN why you are recommending these technology alternatives (what makes them worthy of further study). At the end of the week, your instructor will review the student recommendations and select three or more technologies for students to use in writing their technology study plans (due at the end of Week 8). 3. Review the technology selections (follow-up postings in the original threads). How well did your peers justify their selections? Post a critique for two (2) or more of these selection justifications. You are expected to read replies made to your postings and post follow-up replies which continue and improve upon the discussion.

    Technology Selection Exercise

     

    Technology review is carried out by collecting all information necessary for the technology.  The choice of technology should incorporate new methods and products challenging new product development and definition (Krishnan, et al., 2002). Assessment of the requirements needed is essential and then report the findings. When selecting a technology to be used in an institution, it is important to understand some factors that will influence the choice of technology to be used (Chan et al., 2002). The organization should have human resources available to build and implement the technology solution and also able to operate the technology application. The size of the organization will also help to know what type of system is best
