ITM102 Individual Assignment – Fall 2012 Weight: 10 marks Due date: Sunday November 18, 11:59 pm. You must submit your assignment on time. Late submissions will be accepted only at the discretion of your instructor and will be subject to a 5% per day penalty. Requirements Choose four topics from the list of topics at the end of this document. Assume that you are A technically- savvy employee and your less technically-savvy boss needs overviews of four complex but vital current IT topics. Your task is to give your boss a 1-page (no more than 500 words) ‘executive summary’ for each topic, addressing the questions or issues with sufficient detail to inform your boss of the key points an organization should understand about each topic. You are encouraged to use the Internet, other books, and other academic sources (e.g. white papers, journal articles and conference proceedings) to research each topic. Excessive use of quotes will not impress your instructor or your (fictional) boss. You should use at least 3 sources other than your text for each topic that you research. Use APA citation style to reference your sources. Concordia University’s library offers a helpful guide to APA citation style at You will be assessed on your ability to convey knowledge about each topic in an accurate, thorough and readable manner. Poor grammar and/or failure to follow the formatting instructions will result in mark deductions. Submission Instructions Compile your four reports into a single Microsoft Word file. Your document must be single spaced and paginated. Add a cover page which includes your name, student number, section, date of your submission and a descriptive title (e.g. A Summary of Various IT Topics; topic 1, topic 2 etc.). Submit your file to using the Individual Assignment link in Blackboard.

It is a tool to assist faculty in determining the similarity between student work and the work of other students who have submitted papers to the site (at any university), internet sources, and a wide range of journals and other publications. While it does not contain all possible sources, it gives faculty some assurance that students’ work is their own. No decisions are made by the service; it simply generates an “originality report”.
