Instructions.
To start this assessment, you need to first access the Torreate Briefing Document, which is the case study
for this assessment. You task is to identify the hardware, software, data, database, network, and security
elements used in the IS of the business. The next step is to thoroughly discuss, analyse, and criticise the
role of each of the software elements used in the business model. Your report may layout future directions
or recommendations for the reader clearly based on the analysis from the report. Please do not forget to
include introduction and conclusion to your report.
There is no specific format for the assessment. You are expected to cite all the academic references that
you used in the body of the report conforming to the APA referencing style.
