Description for case is given below :
As a central component of its Vision 2020 strategy, the city of Wellington, New Zealand has developed preliminary plans to transform itself into a “wired city.” The overarching project was called Info City. Info City actually consisted of a collection of sub-projects, each focusing on a different way in which the city could promote and foster the use of information technology to help move toward the “2020 Vision.” One of the sub-projects was called City Link. The objective of City Link was to create a high-speed digital communications infrastructure for the downtown business district. Fiber optic cable was to be used to “wire up,” simply and inexpensively, the city’s downtown businesses, to provide a backbone network that businesses could utilize, however they wished, to make themselves more competitive. A company had recently been formed to bring together a number of parties interested in advancing the project. A telecommunications architecture was being developed, and plans for stringing cable were underway. While Richard Naylor, the project’s champion, wasn’t sure exactly how the city’s businesses would use the cable, he was confident that once the infrastructure was in place, ideas for its utilization would readily emerge. This case provides a setting for exploring the issue of cities “competing,” much as do businesses, and the ways in which IT can be utilized in the competition. Also raises interesting social policy questions about who should pay for such an undertaking, who should benefit, and so on.

Discipline :        Information Technology
Case Length :    20 pages

Description for case is given below :
Metalco is a large Australian mining company. It has a rocky history in terms of its effective use of information systems (IS), and there is widespread dissatisfaction in the company concerning IS and the IS department. The recent resignation of the chief information officer led to the decentralization of the IS function, to move closer to the operating departments. At the same time, one of the division heads has proposed that the company buy the SAP enterprise-wide system, to replace an earlier internal system that had been poorly received. The price tag for SAP is very high, $23 million. Implementing it would also require substantial changes in company processes. In light of its history, recent IS decentralization, and the high SAP price tag, the company is faced with making the decision of whether to go ahead with SAP. An appendix in the case provides extensive information on the procedure used to evaluate SAP and results thereof.

Case Name :      First Virtual Holdings, Inc. (B)

Discipline :        Information Technology
Case Length :    08 pages

Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
First Virtual Holdings, Inc. (FVHI) is an Internet payments company based in San Diego, CA. FVHI’s original offering, an Internet payments system based on consumers’ receiving and using a “VirtualPIN” number for online purchases instead of a credit card number, had not been successful. Consumer apathy to the system, coupled with vendor disinterest, have prevented them from attaining the critical mass necessary to make the system viable. In response to the failure of their payments system, FVHI decided to change their focus. The company developed an interactive advertising banner, about the size of a regular web advertising banner. The “VirtualTAG” functions like a mini web page within a page. Users can click through pages in the banner without leaving the page on which the banner was found. The VirtualTAG can have multiple uses such as to provide information or facilitate transactions. FVHI intends to develop and license the VirtualTAG to web page administrators. They also intend to incorporate the VurtualTAG into e-mail messages. VirtualTAGs may be used as a form of “mass” interactive Internet advertising, although the company is quick to point out that the technology will only be used with targeted and consenting consumers. FVHI’s ideas and technology regarding Internet advertising provide a useful vehicle for discussing trends in online commerce and Internet privacy issues.

Case ID :            98E007
Discipline :        Information Technology
Case Length :    20 pages
Solution Sample availability : YES
Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
First Virtual Holdings, Inc. (FVHI) is an Internet payments company based in San Diego, CA. The company developed a technology by which consumers can securely purchase goods and services over the Internet. Each participating consumer is provided with a “VirtualPIN” number, which is used in place of a credit card number to make purchases from participating online vendors. The vendors forward the consumer’s VirtualPIN number, along with the amount of the transaction to FVHI. FVHI then sends an e-mail to the consumer asking for confirmation of the transaction. When confirmation is received, FVHI processes the transaction and pays the vendor. The technology ensures that a consumer’s credit card number is never sent across the Internet. The system is secure but embodies a certain amount of inconvenience as each purchase required two steps. FVHI is a good example of a company with a good technology whose main challenge is to gain the critical mass of users necessary to make the system viable. The company faces strong competition from established industry players such as software developers, banks, and credit card companies. In addition, continued consumer reluctance to embrace online commerce has hampered the company’s progress.

Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
Scandinavia Translations (Scantran) provides translation services between English and the three Scandinavian languages (Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian), as well as Finnish. The business is operated primarily by one person, Heidi Wade, assisted by her husband Mike. The unique thing about Scantran is that it is a purely virtual business: Heidi and Mike never meet with, see, and rarely even speak with any of their clients, nor with any of their individual translators. Almost all the business is done over the Internet, supplemented by faxes and occasionally the telephone. Documents are mainly transferred as file attachments to Internet electronic mail messages. There are no other permanent employees, and all the work is done out of the couple’s apartment, with no need for expensive overhead such as office premises or fixed salaries. Scantran’s business has grown rapidly since its inception. The Wades are faced with a number of decisions, including whether to try to stay the size they are or “go for growth,” which implies adopting a new business model. If the decision is to grow, what should the new business model be? Can the company maintain the great flexibility provided by the Internet and still expand? This case nicely illustrates both pros and cons of virtual small businesses, typical of a great many Internet-dependent startup companies created in recent years.
