Critically assess how an organisation utilises ICT. Doing this will allow you to draw on themes and issues introduced throughout the module. You will apply the business model canvas of Osterwalder & Pigneur (2010) to an organisation–you can either analyse your sponsoring organisation or a leading Internet company. If the latter, you will be allocated one of the following companies: Alphabet (parent of Google), ASOS, Boohoo, Expedia, Facebook, Spotify or Twitter.(Can choose any organisation)

Your report should be no more than 2500 words in length. This does not include references.

Part 2

The digital economy impacts on individuals as much as it does on organisations. You will assess the impact of the digital economy on individuals, paying particular attention to its impact on how it has changed purchasing. This change is wide-ranging, including how purchases occur and the roles that individuals play within (online and hybrid) markets as well as the context within which purchases occur.

Our Writer’s Comment 

Your main goal for part 1 is to assess in a critical manner how an organisation uses ICT, which is concerned with digital data storage, retrieval, and transmission. It is expected that you will reflect on the lectures and some of the issues that were presented during the discussion of the module. Be sure that you use them so that you will be able to have a critical discussion and assessment of the organisation that utilises ICT. Otherwise, you might score low on this assessment.

Something that students tend to fail in doing when working on this piece of assignment is meticulously applying the business model canvas of Osterwalder and Pigneur to the specific organisation. You must choose carefully which of the two options you will go with: the first option is to analyse your sponsoring organisation, and the second option is to analyse a leading Internet company. Whichever option you choose, you must go with the one you are more comfortable with. 2,500 words may sound a lot, but in reality, when you are in the course of creating a good quality report, you will usually feel that the word count is not enough. So keep in mind that you need to keep everything concise but make it clear for the reader to follow easily. Also, do not forget that you must iInclude relevant and useful references to support your work.
