Case 2: Keeping track

The first IS you made is a more-or-less static Web site. Not much user interaction. A contact form, but that’s it.

Now for something completely different. The Web isn’t just for things we traditionally think of as Web sites. IS is for any business function that can run on the Web. Accounting, sales, HR, you name it. The Web is just another mechanism for delivering functionality to business users.

You’ll build an IS to help run a student org. Track the members, and the projects they’re working on.

In the past, you might have used Microsoft Access or some other database tool. To use the data, you would have to go to the PC with the database on it.

Now, you can put the database on the Web. Anyone can access the data from anywhere, if they have permission.
