Club IT Technology Plan Wendy Fritz XBIS/219 January 8, 2012 Richard Vincent Introduction Over the past months I have completed a thorough examination of the needs, current practices, and future desires of Club IT. The owners are Lisa Tejada and Ruben Keys who requested this analysis to determine the best approach for moving forward and improving the current business. Club IT serves a demographic that is technologically connected. This market is made up of music enthusiasts of all genres. Singers, dancers, musicians, and listeners of all ages and backgrounds can find something to enjoy at Club IT. A variety of interests are served in this club by providing a place for musicians to share their talents and viewers to enjoy those talents.…show more content…
You are our friends, and we seek to build a community that meets regularly at Club IT."

This will also enable them to perform many tasks from anywhere without the need to physically be in the building. While this can free up some personal time, I do not encourage a large amount of time spent away from the business as this is not appropriate at this time for the current situation. Initial steps such as purchasing the new computers and internet service, should be implemented
