However, they have problem to access the Qdata headquarter because of the internal policy and they do not know what is the best way to solve the attack for example to pull the plug or not?

During the search, an alternative was found but in the research and the implementation, plenty of flaws and issues were found and caused several problems for MSCC. By employing DMA to handle the installation and support of the new system, the decision made the possibility of salvaging the system harder and almost non-existent by the end of the case. This left the new Vice President trying to find new ways to repair the damage done to an already flawed system. Key Problems The major problem that seems to plague MSCC is the fact that there was no opinion or guidance from an experienced information system professional. On either installation you can visibly see that the decisions were made quickly and even if there was research performed, it was not enough to quantify the decisions to implement either one of these systems or business.
Without the knowledge about how specific industry works, it is very hard to manage and lead the team to progress and be successful. To make things even worse, Peterson had to report to Jeff Hardy, who was Director of Budgets and Plans and also had no experience in systems operations. This was the first sign of miscommunication in the company. One of the biggest problems for Erik Peterson was bad communication and lack of expertise from the chief engineer Curt Anderson. Peterson showed decent managerial skills by giving specific instructions on how to improve Curt’s ability to plan and organize.
They hire some grad students to help them.They have a competitor Zymagen, who is working on the same thing but they dont know as much as Stonehill does.

Gary was pushed into forging data by his boss and then himself forged data to save his nose in order to meet the technical scope of the project. He lost track of the project’s progress because he had hard time balancing his administrative duties and his technical duties. Due to his lack of communication with his team, Gary wasted time and money in order to meet the milestones. He also could have negotiated a more beneficial contract. Gary had communication, administrative, human resource and leadership problems that, in the end, cost him his position as a project manager.
Lassiter’s choice to adopt the UNITRACK system was not well planned and required a closer examination with Kovecki and Wilson. Lassiter position as the Vice President of Marketing had hindered his ability to recognize the needs of the company. He also lacked the knowledge and research needed to make an informed decision to implement the UNITRAK system.

The last resistance is that the employees are afraid to learn how to use the computer and they are too old. The employees think it would be too difficult to learn a new process and it would replace their jobs. To overcome the resistance, Martin Walker needs to gain the employees trust.

His military background maybe one of the reasons as in the military ,people are
Is Google Making Us Stupid? In Nicholas Carr’s article, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” He discusses how the internet is our main source of information, and with it being the main source of information it is making it more difficult for us to read books or a simple article. He is frustrated that he can no longer read a simple book that used to come so naturally to him, but now it is a struggle to do any type of reading. Carr expects to take in information the way the net distributes it, but the net is chipping away at his capacity for concentration and contemplation. When his troubles are mentioned to friends they say they have the same issues and experiences as he to stay focused on long pieces of writing.
