DT354/4 and Epitech – Strategic Information Systems Assignment

Background –

In our series of lectures to date, we have discussed and outlined the various systems and hierarchy of systems that may support an organisation (Chapter 3) and we also discussed Enterprise Systems.  We will examine various frameworks and models used in the strategic analysis of the role and contribution of IS/IT in organisations. We will see that the Value Chain is used as a means of analysing existing and defining current IS requirements.  The Value chain has extended outside the Organisation (the value network) and is a valuable framework for identifying ways in which an industry value chain (Value System) can be transformed.  IS/IT has been the enabler in the extending and transformation of many Organisations in how they do business. We will also explore the area of IT-dependent Strategic Initiatives and the Sustainability Framework. We have discussed the challenges of global organisations with regard to security and on an ongoing basis we have highlighted the key areas for innovation in the future – Mobile, Cloud, Big Data, Social Media, AI, Data Analytics, AR/VR, 3D Printing, Drone, Robotics and the Internet of Things, and the enabling capabilities and challenges in the convergence of these innovations.

Assignment –

For an Organisation that you are familiar with


  • Provide an introduction to your organisation and identify the industry sector your organisation participates in
  • Using the hierarchical perspective ‘pyramid’ as a guide, identify the various systems in use at each level of the pyramid, or perhaps your organisation has IS solutions that flow right up through the organisation, i.e. a modern ERP system that support a more process driven organisation and supports and enables real-time data availability
  • Identify how the Value Chain model has evolved in your organisation
  • Identify how your organisation has used IS/IT to extend its value chain, virtual value chain, Supply Chain Management, CRM
  • Identify how IS/IT has changed the way it does business and enabled it to compete and survive in its’ Industry Sector
  • Identify potential areas where strategic IS/IT would further enable competitive advantage for your organisation in its industry sector and within its operating environment. Focus on Mobile, Cloud, Big Data, Social Media, the Internet of Things and new technologies, some mentioned above, specific to the Industry Sector your organisation is in and comment on the strategic benefits that these potential new solutions would enable. Be Futuristic!!


Produce a paper for the above, based on the groups’ analysis of the strategic role of Information Systems in the Organisation, academic knowledge and personal perspectives.  In addition, each individual must produce a one page report commenting on the assignment process and your specific opinions on elements of the assignment findings.


When you quote from books, journals or articles, you must give full references in footnotes to the sources used. Use diagrams where possible. Remember, that diagrams that we have spoken about in lectures are generic, your organisation’s diagrams would be specific. When evaluating your organization, look at its competitors in the Industry Sector, and see what they are doing.




The main body of the paper should be no more than 14 pages. Please include a table of contents, (with page numbers), executive summary, conclusions and references.


Please put your Student Numbers, Names, subject, course and title of project on a covering page along with a signed declaration. Number pages with a header showing the Organisation name. Make all references properly in the body of the text with a bibliography attached at the end.  Ensure you keep a backup of your work electronically.


Submit the assignment through the Assessment/Assignment function on Brightspace.  I will create a submission folder and advise you nearer submission. Only one person in the group to submit.


The value of this assignment is 30% of the overall subject’s marks.


THIS IS A Group ASSIGNMENT.  It will be analysed through the plagiarism checker, Ukrund in Brightspace. Penalties will be incurred for late submission.



PLEASE NOTE – I do not want you to investigate large corporations, like Amazon, Tesco, Ryanair, Aer Lingus, Apple, etc.


I would like to see investigations into organisations in the Agriculture sector, Motor industry, Retail sector, Logistics sector


The assignment can be of greater benefit if you can actually talk to somebody in the organisation, so perhaps, where you work or had your work placement.


Also, keep in mind the times we are living in, Covid-19 and Brexit and the challenges they have posed and the role of IT-dependent strategic initiatives that have offered solutions.
