Potential Technology Solution Categories

For this Course Project, you will need to select a technology category that will serve as a solution for the problem or opportunity you have identified for the selected business.

For the purposes of this project, it is important to differentiate between a technology solution category (or technology category) and a specific vendor or product. The technology category is a broad area, such as CRM system or web analytics. A vendor/product is a specific company or product, such as Salesforce, Oracle, Google Analytics, Omnture, and so forth.

The technology solution category selected for this project is acceptable if

  • that technology is available from more than one vendor/company; or
  • There exists at least one other technology that can be used as an alternative solution.
