Plan your reading

Reading is time consuming and it is a pre-requisite to achieve a good marker. A marker can easily identify course work that have
not been properly written.

Leave aside plenty of time to do a sufficient amount of reading. Doing an appropriate amount of reading will also expose you to
good academic writing and thus better enable you to develop your own writing style further.

You should consult relevant Academic Journal and Books focused on Information Systems in Organisation

Avoid bogus websites aimed at helping students with essays.

It is fine to visit Wikipedia to have a background reading but for academic purposes do not cite WIKIPEDIA.

Good reading habits

To effectively answer your selected assignment topic, it is important you:

Use key lecture note, books and journal articles and identify the issues that strike you as relevant to the particular topic

(NOTE: not all the points in the reading materials will be relevant necessarily

Ensure that your reading and note-taking cover each issue in sufficient depth. This will involve you going beyond the essential
reading and doing your own research through more in-depth reading.

It is also recommended that a normal, very good essay contains reference to no fewer than 20 primary sources and at least 15
journal articles

When reading and note-taking, it’s a very good idea to read three or four pages at a time, then make notes on the relevant
points, rather than just alternately read and make notes every few seconds.

Plan

Good reading habits

Ensure that your note-taking also records appropriate evidence for each point (e.g. definitions, statistics, impacts, key issues, re-
occurring themes )

Make note of the page numbers and highlight key areas that are relevant to your course work topic so that you can easily return
to them when writing your arguments.

Make a list of areas you would be writing about and do a check list to ensure you have all the relevant materials to cover the
point in each of the check list.

Plan

Answering the topic

Focus on answering the topic you have been provided and NOT the topic you want to be provided to you.

When planning and writing an essay, always remember to ask yourself – ‘Is this relevant to the topic I have been asked to write
about?

Remember that you are working to a strict word count and irrelevant material will be costing you precious marks.

Structuring an essay

Develop a plan on how you would structure your essay. There is NO definite way on how to structure your essay.

Although every essay you write should have the following sections: Introduction, Literature Review, and Conclusion.

Introduction

Think and write in the context of these questions: Why is the topic important, relevant, and timely? What is the goal of the coursework?

“Organisations today are shifting from on-premise to cloud computing due to flexibility and costing. Cloud based systems refers to
applications, services or resources made available to users on demand via the Internet from a cloud computing provider’s server.
However, very little is known about the process of successfully moving to a cloud-based solution (Louise, 2018). There is call for more
studies to understand the factors that influence the successful transitions from an on-premise to a cloud-based system (Joe, 2019). The
aim of this essay to understand under what conditions can organisations successfully migrate from an on-premise to a cloud computing
service.

Always remember to sign post in your essay.
”The following section will provide a review of the literature; it will focus on introducing the notion of on-premise applications, clouding
based application and the factors that influence the successful transition from on-premise to cloud based. The critical analyses will be
supported with the use of examples. The final section concludes the essay”.

Answering the topic

Literature Review.

What are the major key points you are making to prove your argument?

In this section you will outline these points, provide evidence for them, and add your own analysis for how these points relate to
the topic you are you are being asked.

Conclusion

Summarise your key points and do NOT include any new information. This section is partly a re-iteration of your introduction.
Be critical when summarising your arguments. Also, what is the take home? What can the readers learn from your essay

Be Flexible

You might notice your structure does not make sense or its logical. This is normal, hence be aware you might make some changes
during the writing process.

Themes (Section)

Themes are used to structure your work.
e.g. Factors for successful migration to cloud computing

Within this themes, you have paragraphs to provide your critical analysis and discussion of this section. Each paragraph should serve a function towards
the overall purpose of your essay and will not necessarily follow that standard format below.

Factors for successful migration to cloud computing
This section will highlight the key factors the affect the successful transition from an on-premise to a cloud computing systems.

Top Management Support (sub-theme)
Paragraph 1 tells the reader what the paragraph will be about.

Top management support has been identified as crucial for the implementation of cloud computing service. First, the most difficult and challenging
cloud-based system implementation relates to the major changes to be made in organisational routines and business processes (Davenport, 1998).
These changes could meet resistance from various interest groups within the organisation unless there is absolute commitment from the top
management team (Grover et al., 1995). For example, Apple were successful in implementing a cloud-based solution due to the support of top
management in ensuring all users were involved in the process in order to ensure users were carried along……………..

Second, cloud-based implementation involves a programme of wide-ranging organisational change initiatives, not a software installation effort (Hong
& Kim, 2002). Top management is responsible for resolving misalignments between organisational needs and the cloud-based system functionality.

Simple and ‘loose’ structure: Using too many simple sentences to express your ideas means you are not using transitions to link
these ideas, and you will likely lose marks for the coherency of your arguments. You must therefore strike a balance in your use of
sentence structures

Using ‘and’ too often can also obscure the meaning of your writing. In addition, you shouldn’t make your sentences too long, but
rather break them up into shorter ones.

Conclusion

This should be a summary of your work. It should also provide an implication to practitioners.

This study provides an overview …………………. It has also discussed they key factors that contributes to the successful transition to
cloud-based system. Particularly, it identifies 4 key factors namely top management support, use of consultants, security, and user-
training. In summary, essay shows that to ensure success, adopters of cloud-based systems must devote sufficient attention to
these key factors during planning, deployment, and management of cloud-based systems”.

Writing Style – Common Errors
Avoiding passive writing – Your writing should avoid lapsing into vague language as much as possible. Avoid overusing phrases
such as:

• Somewhat…
• Perhaps…
• Puts forward the notion that…
• Might be taken as…
• To some extent…
• To a large extent…
• It is possible that…

You should also avoid making sweeping statements that you cannot back up with evidence. For example, do NOT write
statements such as “Top management support will automatically lead to a successful implementation of cloud-based solution”
unless you plan on providing evidence to support your assertion.

During

Empty words before adjectives – Avoid adding words such as ‘extremely’, ‘very’, ‘really’ etc. in front of your adjectives. They do
not add anything and do not read well. For example, something does not need to be ‘very challenging’. If it is ‘challenging’ then
you have already conveyed the dire nature of the situation!

Word Count
A common concern is that essay word-counts are restrictive. Try to ensure you are always within the word count. Your references
are not included in the word count.

Referencing

Referencing correctly is a must at university level and is something you should aim to master as early as possible in your academic
career. When you are taking information from a source, be sure to cite it.

Proof-read

Ensure you proofread your work to check grammatical and sentence errors.
