INTRODUCTION OF PROJECT
NETWORK EVOLUTION AND DESIGN
IMPACT OF NETWORKING BUSINESS
AN EFFECTIVENESS OF INTERNET ON BUSINESS
DATA ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATION
During 20th century the most important technology has been the information gathering, its processing and distribution. The computers and communications have been merged together and their merger has had a profound effect on the manner in which computer systems are organized.
Financial Services are experiencing several trends that impact IT, both from within the business organization and from external sources. These trends impact both the regional bank organizations and the larger investment firms. In the regional space, competition to gain and retain customers drives investment in mobile banking, data protection, and remote services, while cutting fees and applying new regulations that lessen bank income. Acquisitions and mergers keep IT organizations busy through data consolidation and integration.
To Study the various aspects of networking and its application in different business sector including Educational and Training sector, Healthcare sector, Banking Sector, Ticket reservation sector, Financial Sector.
Security isn’t only a problem for large companies. Every company is at risk of being hacked. In fact, small businesses are at greater risk because many of them don’t even have a security policy.In conjunction with issue number one, security, a good data backup plan is a last line of defense against a successful ransom ware attack.
What is a Network?
“A network is a conduit for information; it can be as simple as two tin cans tied together with a string or as complicated as the Internet” (Sawhney and Parikh, 2001:80). Networks can develop at various levels – individual (social network), organizational, inter-organizational, and international. Castells explains that a network “is constituted by the intersection of segments of autonomous systems of goals” (1996:171). His definition applies to all networks. Social networks involve the common ties that exist among individuals. A person’s social network might involve her group of common friends, for example. A client’s social network could include her family, her classmates, her afterschool friends, and so on. Social networks usually involve informal ties among individuals. Cattell (2001) provides examples of social networks and notes that social networks differ from community networks primarily as one incorporates individuals while the other refers to organizational level involvement. This review is primarily concerned with community or inter-organizational networks.
For the purposes of this review, a network can be defined as, “a set of autonomous organizations that come together to reach goals that none of them can reach separately” (Chisholm, 1998: xxi). Rupert Chisholm develops his network concept using Trist’s (1983) socioecological conceptualization. This view distinguishes networks from other inter-organizational relationships. The orientation of an individual organization is to the common concern articulated by the network; the vision and goals that bind the organizations together (Chisholm, 1996: 219). Chisholm explains, “Organizations belong to networks to enable them to deal with metaproblems” (Ibid). Following systems theory and drawing on the socioecological, it is assumed that the commitment of the individual level organization to a higher purpose or goal affects the whole system. The network is seen as an organizational innovation that will quickly be adopted because it offers competitive advantage (Jarillo, 1993; Alter and Hage, 1993). For Chisholm, the first feature of networks is their attachment to a common purpose.
A Research Design is the framework or plan for a study which is used as a guide in collecting and analyzing the data collected. It specifies the methods and procedures for acquiring the information needed to conduct the research effectively.
To conduct the research the following procedure will be used:-
- To study the application of networking in the educational and training sector- Discussions were held with the educational and training department of various colleges and institutes and how have they been benefited by implementing various aspects of marketing.
- Healthcare sectors will be searched to study how networking and computer networks are helping to manage the healthcare services given by the hospitals.
- It will be researched different banks and saw how the bank officials are handling the accounts section and management of different bank statements and account of people that have invested in the bank and how they are extensively using computer networks for the process.
DATA COLLECTION TECHNIQUES:
The primary data will be gathered through personal interaction with various functional heads and other technical personnel.
Secondary data will be collected from various reports / documents charts, management information systems, etc. and also will be collected from various magazines, books, newspapers and internet.
Sampling: It is not always necessary to collect data from whole universe. A small representative sample may serve the purpose. A sample means a small group taken in a large lot. This small group taken in a large lot .This small group should be emanative cross section and really “representative” in character. This selection process is called sampling.
Sample size: Samples are devices for learning about large masses by observing a few individuals. The sample will be selected 100.
All the employees of the organization
Methods of Sampling
Random sample method:
The method will be adopted here is random sampling method. A Random sample is one where each item in the universe has as an equal chance of known opportunity of being selected.
The survey is going to be conduct through questionnaire after the end of the internship.
Target respondents:- Employees of the company
Sampling techniques:- Random sampling method.
Data analysis techniques:- Data will be analysed through pie chart, bar chart etc.
