    You have managed to take FYC to the next level by setting up an e-commerce website for selling furniture using the Internet. Portals and collaboration applications involving internet, intranet, and extranet applications "talk" to each other to provide a seamless, paperless, real-time, workflow environment to manage all business operations.

    Now you have made sufficient impact on the top line; it is now time to concentrate on the bottom line. How can intranets and extranets make a difference in FYC's operations? Where should they be deployed? Study each department's functions and processes in detail; choose one: (a) Intranet or (b) Extranet. What functionalities should the $$tranet contain? And what will be the benefits for FYC?

    Be sure to discuss either an intranet or extranet in detail and what benefits either could provide. I want to see an indepth discussion on one not a high level discussion on both.

    Although the extranet and intranet differ in function, their goals usually align--that is to provide for secure communication and collaboration, and to offer a more efficient content management solution.
