    Ah, I wrote network and beta for the first two, and I put operational and functional for the other two, but I knew that was wrong :/.
    Yeah, I thought the changeover was a nice one too

    Awesome ! I just really went into great detail about the six later steps that thairshan posted. Then got worried and put a load in about hot standby sites and their importance as well as alternative buildings

    Other than that, only question im slightly worried about was the Q9.... I wrote like 2 pages including some points i am really nervous about... However, i only need like 30/100 for a C overall, 52/100 for a B overall and 73/100 overall for an A... As long as I bank the B overall, im happy
    you are in a similar place as me! I only need an E for a C overall. But i would really want an A overall.

    As i will have one A* don't be amazed, It's my first language but apparently university is happy with it.

    I already have one distinction in Business.

    Biology today went bad but I should be able to bank a C. Although I need B overall. For Uni.

    Chemistry AS lol I left 20% of unit 2 empty so an E overall. Atleast looks better than a U.



    Did you apply to uni next year and what grades do you need?

    but didnt that question ask for the techniques for testing :s beta and alpha are types of testing. I wrote test harness, volume and multiplatform. Cant remember the other one. Also to get A* overall i think you need 90% in info3 and info4! Not sure though

    I agree, the exam was not that bad, the only one that made me stumble slightly was Q9.... I hope I get that B at least

    Unlike most of the people on here, im just a quite average student... Im needing BBC

    Will hopefully get the B in ICT and Business Studies, with the C coming in Maths :/

    Any by overall I meant combined AS/ A2

    I have 139 ums in AS.
    + INfo4 ums = 67
    = 206
    So i need 114 ums in info 3 to get that mark 78 marks.. For an A* overall

    oh i see nice one what did you write for the social network and crm question?
    I'll just do key points I wrote about.

    CRM
    - How it will be centrally based so all the individual departments can update the customers data. And if a customer calls in for a service then he can get information from any department as they have access to the data rather them him having to wait and reconnect to a different one. So happy customer

    - How they can use info on their to see customers shopping habits and aim at them with the right promotions via emails etc.

    Can't remember the rest about this had like 3 more points.

    For social networking.

    - They could make a page on sites like Facebook and link it to their website. So direct more traffiic.


    - Post promotions/vouchers on their face book page that would lead the customers to their website or get them to want to visit the actual site.

    - Post match live details to drive more fan based traffic.

    - Facebook(social networking) will also act as a free marketing for them.

    haha we all the same feeling about a few questions. I never like to leave much blank, So i sometimes make a small story up lol it actually works in essay questions where no facts(not always) have to be mentioned for the marks. I just make sure I use good English, grammar and structure they always help.

    I nearly did the same.... I wrote about the fact CRM enhances fan-club relations, developed the point.... Wrote about tracking preference of favorite bit of merchandise, thus minimizing stock costs of less popular products, developed it again.. Finally went on to discuss promotional offers as you stated

    For Social Networking, wrote about how it can be used as a feedback system in terms of their restaurants and/or merchandise. Wrote about how consumers could give ideas to Redfield for new merchandise, and if they chose to use it customer/fan satisfaction will increase, thus leading to the club having a more fan orientated club. Developed it some more... Also discussed your point of untapped geographical markets... Talked about how the correct appliances to fan suggestions could result in increased ticket sales too

    Hopefully did ok

    NO WAY?! That's exactly all the stuff I wrote. Especially the mention of the I cloud and how organisations tend to use on that these days alot. Also I mentioned things such as faster broadband speed will lead to upload and downloading of movies. I dunno if we're on the same lines or was the answer relating to something more complex. :dontknow:

    Hey me and my friends thought it was fairly decent. Luckily what i revised came up. But i kinda mixed up unit 2,3 and 1 stuff in there. Oohh wow still it is all ICT.

    I kinda had to make a conclusion quickly for the last question as the guy said stop writing now

    To start with I wrote about the apple presentation yesterday in which the guy mentioned I cloud and how they are improving it, then i linked that to the high broadband speed would allow faster upload/ download.

    I talked about gaming.

    About business meetings across the world using web cams.

    can't remember the rest

    What did you write?

    Hi guys. Just trying to think about the questions we had earlier. Got 8/9... Anyone remember the missing one? I'm aware they're in a random order....

    1 - give the disadvantages of an organisation using emerging technologies as the main factor within its ict strategy
    2 - compare the two changeover methods and give the most suitable for redfield
    3 - how can redfield football club make use of: a CRM system and social networking
    4 - testing table - test harnesses, volume testing, multi platform and the missing one
    5 - discuss what redfield football club should do to maintain the privacy and security of their customer data.
    6 - large organisations must be prepared for a disaster. Discuss what the organisation should consider to prepare for a disaster.
    7 - discuss the benefits of an organisation using an outsourcing company rather than it's internal ict department
    8 - some other question!
    9 - By 2015 broadband speeds are expected to be several times faster than current broadband speeds. Discuss the impact of these faster broadband speeds on the individual, organisations and Society.

    Thanks guys.
