Throughout the term, our class was assigned the task to advise and design a solution for a motorcycle company as an information technology consulting group. We designed a general solution for the company in terms of business processes and executive architecture, and then worked on a sub-scenario in which we were to design a website more suitable to international consumers. Project Analysis and Proposal Solution Design and Implementation Plan Technical Design and Implementation Plan Technical Implementation Final Report Our final website may be found here.
For this assignment I was tasked to solve an information problem using a database hosted on a PHP server and using MySql. Using these tools I manipulated the data given to create a solution for the client, a partner of the Affordable Homes Development Compound.
Throughout the term, our group worked on the process of setting up a fast food establishment that would deliver fresh and healthy food to an initial target market of college students. Part of the assignment was to create a professional request-for-proposal in which we lay out our plans for the business, as well as the start-up finances we would need to succeed. The audience was an fictional Venture Capitalist corporation called Capitalist Assets Kirkpatrick. I designed the document, gave it the layout, designed the images and compiled it before we handed it in.
Iím Denise Edwards, currently a Junior studying Information Systems and International Relations and Politics. Iím also a Japanese Language minor. I am an undergraduate student at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.
I have many interests which include reading, drawing, singing, dance, fashion and learning languages. I am currently trying to teach myself both French and Korean. Most recently I have gained an interest in design, partly in fault to the Communication Design class I took last semester. Communication Design has opened my eyes to the human side of information systems and human-technology interaction which I find interesting.
I hope that this website has proved insightful into learning about more about myself. Thanks for viewing!
