If you are not currently working on a project, refer back to this case study to complete the exercises throughout the book.
Acme Corporation is currently using a "homegrown" computer system called UBuy to manage their purchasing. They have developed this system over the last 10 years. It has been designed specifically to meet their organization's needs. Every time the organization changes or a new need arises, the Information Technology (IT) department updates the system to meet the need.
Everyone at Acme is very happy with UBuy. Not only has the technology been customized for each department in the organization, but each department has also created their own business processes based on how they prefer to use it.
