This volume is the latest addition to the ""Cases on Information Technology Series"", a series which provides a collection of case studies focusing on IT implementation in organizations. The cases included in ""Cases on Information Technology: Lessons Learned, Volume 7"" cover a variety of IT initiatives, including enterprise systems, wireless technologies, rebuilding operating systems after destruction, and implementation within non-profit organizations. Each case includes integral information regarding organizations working with IT, including key individuals involved, intelligent steps taken or perhaps overlooked, and the final project outcomes. This volume is useful to IT managers and researchers, as it describes various scenarios of IT implementation and also unfortunate downfalls. Using the real-life situations as facilitators for classroom discussion, professors and students will benefit as well from this collection of cases.
