One of the topics that stood out to me is computer or internet policy. I was able to learn and come up with a policy that can be used in an organization. This exercise also made me understand the importance of having a robust policy in place. It is particularly crucial in an era where organizations have taken up the use of technology. One of my most exciting reads was on big data. It is an area that I have always had an interest in, and I gathered more information. For instance, I am now aware of how organizations use big data (Zhang, 2018). The most interesting readings I find during the course were business intelligence, blockchain, information systems, and digital transformation. These topics interest me a lot, and I want to learn more about them. Of course, I can feel a change in my perspective; before, I use to think about how could technology change the working of any business but now, I can say that after aligning the business with the IT strategies, the business can serve its customers in a more manageable way and can let the business earn more profits (Zhang, 2018).This course has been eye-opening because I understood more about technology and how businesses take advantage of it. I now have a better understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of technology. One of the main issues surrounding the use of technology is the security (Pearlson et al., 2020). Security is the central down part of technology adoption in organizations. This is because unauthorized personnel can get into the organization’s database and take the information they need. This can end up being very costly for organizations. I thought the topics of the course were well laid out. I also found them to be quite exhaustive. However, one of the areas that I would like more emphasis on is big data. This is because big data has become a common trend in organizations. It would be nice to understand how it is being used properly, its advantages and disadvantages, among others (Pearlson et al., 2020). ReferencesPearlson, K., Saunders, C., Galletta, D. (2020).
