Lesson 2 The course project
Objective Learn about the project you will be completing at the end of this course.
To better prepare you to build an eBusiness solution and to know which tools are necessary for each aspect of that solution, we have created an optional course project for you. The course project revolves around a fictitious ebusiness, called seopearl.com. You are asked to imagine yourself as one of its senior IT managers.
The course project consists of two multi-step exercises. It asks you to examine two phases of seopearl.com's business:
  1. its early existence as a Web site and
  2. its transition to an enterprise portal.
More specifically, in the first exercise you will be asked to respond to some complaints lodged by customers and by your company's inventory department.
In the second exercise, you will consider the requirements for turning seopearl.com from a site into a full-fledged enterprise portal.
In each exercise, you will have a choice as to which issues to respond to, and your tutors will evaluate your responses accordingly. If you wish, you may answer every question in the project, but we won't grade you on those.
In both exercises, you will have a set of resources to help you respond to the problems in question. These resources include the following kinds of information:

B
  1. Company history
  2. Site architecture
  3. Email
  4. Current data
You will find these in the Resource file, which looks like the one below:

With each response, you will get feedback from a tutor about your solutions to the problems presented.
Next, you will begin the first part of the course.
