Harvard Bussiness School Case Study is one of our requirement as UTM student. We will discuss about this case study for every semesters at least one case study for one semester. As for us,students from FSKSM,our batch will be given minimum 8 case studies during our period of study here. So, 1 case  already done. MISSION ACCOMPLISH!!! and 7 more to go!!! Ready for the task given friends. hahaha

Here are the process and progress of our group discussion. First things first, we were given this case study on the first day of our class and as you all know, Dr. Zaidi class. Then,we have to form a group about 7 members per group for brainstorming and discussion day. My brainstorming members are Amir, Shakila, Zureen and Viera. We are doing our brainstorming at the end of November if I'm not mistaken.

Then, discussion day was on 14th December 2011, started at 2.30 p.m at BK2,N28 FSKSM combined with Section 01(Bioinformatics). My discussion members quite different from brainstorming members because we have to form 7 members per group. My new members are Chuah, Hanisah, Fatin Safiah, Sak Wai On, Valerie and Zureen.

During the discussion day,we were given 30 minutes to discuss and gave answers based on the questions drew.There were 10 questions which are :
  • Strategies taken by Symbian,Google,Apple in striving to lead the mobile industry.
  • Lessons learned from Harvard Business School Case Study
  • New entry company such as Google & Apple become threat to Symbian company.How?
  • Discuss the key players in mobile phone industries and how they influence each other.
  • As the future IT professional,how this case study change your view about your career?
  • What innovations can be introduce in improving mobile phone industries in terms of community uses and work?
  • Discuss the Symbian's situation based on Porter's 5 Forces model.What are your recommendation?
  • Analyse  Symbian's situation using SWOT analysis technique.What is your opinion about company situation.
  • Discuss on key Symbian Executives (exhibit 3). What is your opinion about them?Give suggestions.
  • Discuss on the mobile market share based on the statistics given.

So,we got question number 2. It is about mentioning lessons learnt from this case study.
Here are my answer. Let's see! :
  • Symbian provide mobile access to materials that already available on the web such as mobile social networking which are Facebook, My Space and Twitter. Hence, mobile content provide participating mobile phone customer with unlimited music download. Lastly, developers offered smartphones on specialized markets. In example, banking, playing games, purchasing books, sending and receive email and reading news headlines. In conclusion, all these application can make ourlife more easier and users are not wasting their time.              


Database Administrators

Database Administrators use database software to store and manage information. They will often set up database systems and are responsible for making sure those systems operate efficiently (usually referred to as database performance tuning). They also make sure that the data they store is backed up regularly, stored effectively, and that the data is secure from unauthorized access. Ensuring the data is available, by maximizing database up time, is also an important function of the database administrator.

Database Administrator Career Path

Database administrators often promote to a senior database administrator and then into a strategic management role within the company, such as a MIS Manager and eventually even on to a Chief Technology Officer role. Some DBAs specialize in a certain area, such as database security, and become experts in that particular area.

Database Definition

A database is a set of data that has a regular structure and that is organized in such a way that a computer can easily find the desired information

Data is a collection of distinct pieces of information, particularly information that has been formatted (i.e., organized) in some specific way for use in analysis or making decisions. 

A database can generally be looked at as being a collection of records, each of which contains one or more fields (i.e., pieces of data) about some entity (i.e., object), such as a person, organization, city, product, work of art, recipe, chemical, or sequence of DNA. For example, the fields for a database that is about people who work for a specific company might include the name, employee identification number, address, telephone number, date employment started, position and salary for each worker.
