Business fit for Networking 

I'm not sure if I am in the right thread. I wanted to ask what kinds of business types needs networking?  Other than sales and inventory but the same kind of relationship.  Its for a project. I find find it hard to think of a kind.

Re: Business fit for Networking 

What type of networking are you referring to: networking between people or systems networks?

Systems. Like the cashier terminal to the inventory database.  The requirement is to share a single database but they must be two different systems.  Its really breaking my head. Thanks for reading my post.

Re: Business fit for Networking 

Hi,

don't know if I'm misunderstanding your question, but you asked what types of business need networking... based on the assumption you are talking about inter-company networking (and not network requirements within the business - if this assumption is wrong and you mean systems, change the word "business" in for the rest of this post to "system") the types that interact through process and/or (more likely) data.

What types of business would that be - from a theoretical perspective all of them as all businesses interact with (at least) customers and optionally (but usually) suppliers.

From a real world perspective those businesses requiring networking are those that are not constrained to only unautomated interactions with customers and suppliers. So any automated interaction with an organsiation external to the business needs networking. Thus internal processes such as internal audit, timekeeping etc have no networking requirement.

Hope this helps and if I am still misunderstanding the question, yell at me!

Guy

You really need to start with the atrget outcomes.  What are you looking for out of networking businesses (services?)

What benefits will the project sponsor get from the investment?
