Case Study 1: Midsouth Chamber of Commerce (MSCC): The Role of the Operating Manager in Information Systems March 5, 2017 MGMT 408 Professor Gomillion
Image of page 1
Introduction Midsouth was created in the early 1900s to assist multiple businesses in the Mid- South areas. The company had its many ups and downs with multiple vendors with such a low employee rate. As the company grew, it wasn’t always the best for them but they still managed to keep going. By the 1980s they became the most powerful advocate organization with Jack Wallingford as president. When technology came to the company, they realized the need of technology and how it became resourceful but also how it changed the company altogether. Background MSCC had some computer systems that were not integrated, not documented, with little supports and maintenance at the time, and the systems was not Y2K compatible. Leon Lassiter had a vision of an integrated computer system that could further help the organization in its core business (marketing, handling conferences and seminars, pushing the Legislature for new laws).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
