For this class, you will write a white paper on a topic from the information systems field that is of interest to you. It can be a piece of technology you want to learn about, an emerging technology that has been reported in the press lately, a new development or trend in the field of information systems, or any ethical, security, and privacy issues involving the Internet or use of information systems. You will prepare a whitepaper on this topic, concentrating on future trends and their implications. The focus of this paper should be on the use of this technology or the impact of this new development on individuals or the business world, rather than deep technical details. However, each student should acquire sufficient understanding of the underlying technical details.
Your whitepaper should focus on the following issues:
What the technology is
An overview of how it works
The potential business applications of the technology
The nature of any controversial issues, if applicable
How the technology is expected to develop in the next few years
How you believe the technology will impact business in the next 5 years

Use the APA reference style for in-text references.
List all references in alphabetical order on a new page at the end of the paper with the heading “References” following the APA reference style.
Include page numbers at the bottom of each page, except for the cover page.
The font should be 12-point Times New Roman or 11-point Calibri. The margins should be 1 inch all around. The line spacing should be at 1 or 1.15, with no spacing between paragraphs.
