The first question that was raised needed an explanation on what needed to be done with the blog entry. An action needed to be taken and this would probably check on the security on it and close it down if its disadvantages outweighed the advantages. This question is just connected to as to why the IT projects took long. Just as Barton said, security is very vital before established of IT project or a system. it is a sensitive and complicated issue which needs minds to be brought together. This helps people to think together and bring their ideas together. One person is not able to come up with a conclusion especially in IT, which entails practical work.
Access to information through blogs is one of the issues that the IVK members and the leaders had ignored. For instance, Barton had to calm down so as to read the file that Ruben had sent to him. It is until Barton started checking the links to the blogs that he actually knew the importance of the so called Web 2.0 revolution. Encouraging the public to visit these sites will help them know more about the emerging technologies and it will also promote the spread of information. The members of IVK should be encouraged to post some critical information in the blogs so that the public can access the information since the blogs are links can be accessed by the public. The seniors should be well versed with these links and this will promote their relations with their junior as the information will help solve some IT problems that they experience now and then.
So as to spot the emerging technologies to be helpful, security is vital and open communication to the publics, who benefit directly from IT. In any organization, the public comes first. A mutual understanding and a relationship ought to be established between the organization and the public so as to benefit mutually. If the public is against the organization, then it will fail because its success is majorly determined by the public. The members ought to use every way possible to tap into any technology that will help the public.
Barton is able to fix his way of fighting fires as he is not the only one that works in IT department. Though William is not interested with IT and its language, people like Ruben and Cho can help him solve some problems that come up. He also needs to develop some patience in how he works his things. Slowing down helps in dealing with issues that need lots of concentration. As said earlier, IT is one of the complicated fields and needs some concentration. If one happens to jump into conclusion on any serious matter, just as Barton did, there are consequences
As said before, technology is growing at a very high rate and the world has become one small global village. There is increased spread of information through a number of websites. Communication world-wide has become very easy. Countries are doing businesses online and this has boosted the economy of the country in that, the country is able to buy what she needs at a favorable price as compared to when one would travel to the other country. Working in different offices has become easy due to growth in technology. Generally advantages of growth in technology outweigh the disadvantages.
The way that would work is when the vendors did work for IVK for some time so as to establish the partnership. This way, the IVK will know whether they should maintain it or look for another way since IVK is a sensitive organization. The IVK should have a control which will be a parameter on which vendor will work with them to achieve maximum benefits and positive feedback from the people that they serve. The Web 2.0 has more advantages that the disadvantages since its links are open to the public and in any organization, the public comes first. The public will be able to access information about the organization, then the organization will post information that the public ought to know, hence maintaining their relationship with the public.
