What do you need to do?

The assignment requires you to do the following –

• Create a group of 3-4 students (or work individually). Please note, regardless of

your group size or even as an individual attempt, you need to address all the requirements of the assignment. You need permission from unit coordinator to make any exception to this.

• Choose a topic as a group from the topic list above and read the lecture content relevant to the topic.

• Research about the topic using multiple authentic resources e.g. websites, articles (conference and journal) and books. Please note, Wikipedia is not considered an authentic resource for academic reporting in this assessment.

• Finally, prepare a report according to the given format and specifications below and submit it in Moodle. You need to submit only one report as a group.

• The report will be marked as a group and any conflict within the group needs to be dealt with via consultation of your tutor/lecturer one week before the submission date. If you fail to deal with the conflict on time, the entire group will be responsible for the submission.

Report format and specifications –

You are required to submit a written report in a single Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) document. You must use appropriate and authentic referencing to ensure credibility of your report. The report must not exceed 4000 words limit and any unnecessary information included in the report may result in reduced marks.

The report must contain the following content (feel free to define your own sections, as long as you include all the required content):

• Cover page/title page and Table of contents

• Introduction

• Body of the report needs to address the following – o Detail the current use of your chosen topic in the context of IBM cloud

o How does other leading cloudIoT providers handle it compare to IBM’s implementation?

o What are the current developments relevant to your topic which can heavily impact the cloudIoT industry?

o What are the current challenges the cloudIoT industry is facing regarding your chosen topic?

• Write a business case study which shows how your topic helps to address day to day business challenges. You will find many similar case studies in the text book specified in this unit. Please find an example business case study at the end of this assignment document.

• Conclusion

• References – all key claims and statements in your report must be backed by authentic references. The number of required references may vary across topics, however it must be at least 10 references. Make sure you also cite each reference in the text (rather than just listing the reference at the end of the report).

Plagiarism Checking Information

It is VERY important that you do not copy content directly from either the text or Internet resources: this assignment is to be in your own words. You will lose marks if you do not use your own words! Actual plagiarism will result in the instigation of the student misconduct process.

On uploading your assignment for the first time you will be able to immediately see your similarity score. However, a 24 hour delay exists for the release of similarity scores for the submission of successive items (drafts).3

To be clear, the delay will not apply to your first draft which will receive a Turnitin similarity score as soon as possible. This mandatory delay was implemented by Turnitin to minimise misuse of the similarity-checking service by students who were simply modifying their submissions to avoid match detection and without citing sources appropriately.
