Assignment 2: Corporate Portal Scorecard
Research at least five areas of publicly available information (such as the Dow Jones or top search engine results) that help to establish the health and public image of a company. Propose a web-based information system that will interface with this information (for example via RSS feed) and display current details on these areas to an executive; include in your description how each item is relevant to the health of the business. The information presented on the output screen should be succinct and light on technical detail. Business abbreviations (such as stocks) are perfectly acceptable as raw data. Ideally, these categories would all be visible on a single monitor screen without scrolling (if they are articles, then just the headline as a clickable link would be sufficient). Suggest at least two ways in which this system might be useful.
