The Internet of Things (08-700)

Students are asked to assess the viability of using ubiquitous computing technologies in hospitals. They need to prepare a report on the potential impact of ubiquitous computing on this company within a five-year timeframe. In the report, students assess the applicable technologies, costs, and probable applications that will improve the company’s bottom line, compliance with federal regulations, and/or quality of care, and/or customer service. In the process, they learn to do high-level business process analysis; investigate ubiquitous computing technologies and applications; consider a problem that may be on a vastly larger scale than they’ve ever considered before; and learn to think globally, as this is the crux of working within the world of eBusiness.
