You are required to write a data management plan (DMP) for a digital project to be undertaken by your organisation.
A DMP is a document describing various aspects about the management of the data including acquisition, manipulation, storage, analysis, and reporting. It is necessary for any project based on the use of data and making decisions from data.
The project your organisation is doing involves a system capturing data from the organisation’s internal departments as well as external stakeholders/partners, holding the useful data in a suitable data storage, and providing a decision-making facility to a specific department in the organisation. An example may be a customer relationship management system used by the sales and marketing department. You can decide on the project area from within the following business functions: finance management, marketing management, human resource management, operations management, design, manufacturing, and service provision.
immersing them in the ‘story’ (campaign). By doing this, they are making the consumer feel like they are part of a performance by a huge, well-known brand. “Apple is not selling an MP3 player, they are inviting you to the apple lifestyle” (Chazin, 2009:3) By making the consumer part of the fun in the video, and part of a performance, we are able to fully ingest and embrace the story that’s being told. Saying this, the fact is they are not truly part of it unless they have the iPod, because this is clearly a huge part of the campaign. By making the experience the main feature of their campaign, Apple do not have to blatantly put huge prices and huge images of their products on their campaigns, because the story and characters are selling the brand and the experience that comes along with the products. Figure 2. Apple (2004) In 2004, Apple released a silhouette campaign that involved ‘PC vs MAC’ at the end in huge, bold text (see fig.3) (Every iPod ‘silhouette’ ads (2004-2008), 2012). This could be seen as the conflict imbedded in the story, and the PC could be seen as the ‘villain’. Windows has always been Apple’s biggest competitor and the fact that they put ‘PC vs MAC’ in one of their most memorable campaigns, gives a huge shock factor to the consumer. “As storytellers, we get our message across through conflict and its resolution” (Fog, 2004:36). The message that Apple are personifying through the use of this conflict, would be that essentially, Apple is better than PC and if you want to have fun and let loose, buy a mac. Although the ad does not flat out say ‘buy a mac’, they are asking you your own opinion, what would you prefer? By asking this question this instantly makes the consumer feel like they are part of the experience, leaving them wanting more. The fact that apple advertise a Mac computer on an iPod advert, backs up the point of selling the experience. No matter what apple product you buy, whether it be an iPod, iPad or a MacBook, you will be part of the story and overall experience.>GET ANSWER
