Impact of Technology
  • Does IT matter?
  • Is IT harmful?
it for strategic competitive advantage
IT for Strategic, Competitive Advantage
  • How to measure impact of information technology on productivity and performance? ROI, Performance, sales.
  • IT for strategic competitive advantage gives unique edge over competition
  • Sustained edge over competition
  • Examples: Baxter Healthcare, American Airlines, Walmart, USAToday, Comdial, FedEx, Otis Elevator
  • Increase in productivity, or increase in worker hours?

  • Activities to step through
  • Cycle through using GPS device outside
  • Applied V and H coordinates to Morgantown map
  • Present findings and conclusions at end of class in groups
why gps is important for mis students
Why GPS is important for MIS students
  • GPS is the root technology for GIS applications
  • GPS is operationalized via satellite constellations, geostationary and low orbit satellites
  • m-commerce rests on GPS
  • GIS is important new business application
  • Encourage further study with ArcView or GIS classes in Geology or elsewhere
how does gps work in general
How does GPS work in general
  • Constellations of at least 24 satellites operated by DOD
  • Removed selective availablity
  • GPS satellites radio down data packet every 30 seconds, with pseudo random bit pattern
  • Calculates signal delay differences
  • Uses how long signal took to get to receiver, satellite’s velocity, and time of transmission and triangulates three signals or more to pinpoint spot
  • Fairly reliable unless under canopy or in unusual regions
how does the device work
How does the device work
  • Terms
  • Maps
  • Menu
  • Acquiring satellites
  • Establishing location
  • Marking position and viewing in map page
  • Compass page, map page, highway page
why is gps so interesting
Why is GPS so interesting
  • For a long time, man only knew latitude based on the stars, and ships were lost and wrecked
  • Progress was made with determining longitude when clocks helped to establish locations based on celestial relative to the earth at certain times (required expert seamanship, accurate charts, sextants)
  • Polar magnetic fields shift daily
  • Now, can get 3 meter accuracy
  • Get latitude, longitude and altitude with high degree of accuracy and little amount of skill
  • Predict will radically change the world that we live in technologically
