Information Systems (IS) and Their Use in Strategy Star StudentUniversityBUS 530: Management Information Systems and TechnologyFantastic ProfessorMonth Date, Year Information Systems (IS) and Their Use in Strategy Briefly providing the contextual background of the leader. This will contain the person’s background. This is how I want your paper turned in. Your audience is someone like your roommate – intelligent, educated, but has NO IDEA what the case study is about.This is generally one paragraph, but two or three may be fine. The easiest way to explain this section is to think of it like an abstract or introduction. This section, if written properly, can actually act as the abstract for this paper. It will, in a sense, set up the rest of the paper, which is the review of the case, analysis, recommendations, and the summary and conclusions sections. Cite authors. You should NOT write “According to his book” as your reader has NO IDEA who or what is that. Instead, use “According to Wallace (2015), …”If there is a second paragraph, it will look like this. This is difficult for many to get used to and takes practice. The paper should be written in third person narrative, but for this paper, the first person will be accepted. You will NOT use the first person plural, “we,” or the second person. One other note: an organization is an “it,” not a “they.” Remember that when you use pronouns describing an organization.Defining Information Systems (IS) and Management Information Systems (MIS)Here, you will answer the mandate, “Differentiate between information systems (IS) and management information systems (MIS). Identify some research areas in MIS, and provide an example.”MIS ExampleBegin text here. Here is where you can provide the mandated example.Information Systems in the Competitive StrategyBegin text here. Note: I do not want to see heading written as questions or you asking questions within the paper. Here, you can answer the mandate, “Describe how IS can play a vital role in the competitive strategy of an organization.”The Importance of a Cross-Functional Enterprise ArchitectureBegin text here. Note: I do not want to see heading written as questions or you asking questions within the paper. Here, you can answer the mandate, “Explain the importance of having a cross-functional enterprise architecture.”The Data Warehouse: How it is Created Used, and its ChallengesBegin text here. Note: I do not want to see heading written as questions or you asking questions within the paper. Here, you can answer the mandate, “Describe how a data warehouse is created and used in an organization and explain the challenges and value of big data.”Concept Relationships and Their Contribution to Strategic DirectionBegin text here. Note: I do not want to see heading written as questions or you asking questions within the paper. Here, you can answer the mandate, “Describe the relationships between the concepts presented in this assignment, and how they contribute to the strategic direction of an organization.”Also, you must provide at least six peer-reviewed references and cite the references in the form of in-text citations in the body of the paper (i.e., the textbook and six additional peer-reviewed sources). Again, when you reference material in your paper, you must also have in-text citations in the body of the paper for each reference. Remember, EVERY citation must correspond to a reference and EVERY reference must correspond to a citation. You CANNOT have one without the other.Summary and Conclusions This section will tie together all sources used for this case study, conclusions drawn from the reading and any inconsistencies. This section will generally be one to two paragraphs. Notice the paper has a continuous flow; there are no page breaks or gaps between sections. The only page breaks occur between the title page and the introduction, as well as and the summary/conclusions and the reference page. All references for the case study must appear on a separate page (see the following page for an example).ReferencesThis section will reference all original work cited throughout the paper. The heading should appear at the top of the page and all reference material should be listed below in alphabetical order by first last name; also, the title for books is always in italic format and in sentence form. In contrast to book references, the title for articles is in sentence format, not in italic, but the name of the publisher is in italic. See examples below:Barzani, R. S. (2014).
