1.Implementing a new AIS system could prove to be beneficial or detrimental to an organization’s IT infrastructure. Assess the risks associated with integrating a new AIS system and suggest what management can do to minimize those risks
You have been selected as the change agent for the implementation of a new AIS system that will ultimately affect the way all employees complete their daily tasks. The new AIS system will also require online approvals for all source documents. This will result in significant cost savings for the firm; however, in the past, employees have been resistant to radical changes such as this. Evaluate the risks and rewards of such a move by the firm. Provide specific examples to support your response.
2. You are part of a project management team evaluating accounting software packages that could be used by S&S (i.e., the case company referenced in Chapters 1 through 4), which would incorporate its four basic transaction cycles. Suggest five factors that the team should consider when selecting the package. Rank the factors in order of importance, and then justify your ranking.
From the e-Activity, evaluate two different software packages and propose how you would promote one package over the other to the management committee. Provide specific examples to support your response.
