Dear prelounge community.

So basically I reached the last part of my interview and got a "Take Home - Case".

They gave me Information about my "imaginary partner" and the case.
so my "customer" want a cloud oriented platform for their buisiness customers where they can exchange confidential and nonconfidential informations and also a workspace for uploading and editing documents.

Well, I got no idea and also got no knowledge in this particular areas, so how should I approach this case? Or is anybody here who could help me with some basics?

Best regards

Hi Anonymous,

in general, it is not necessary to have specific industry knowledge for consulting cases, although it could help with brainstorming. Which are the questions of the client in the case? If you can provide them, it could be easier to suggest an approach.

Best,

Francesco

Hi! Thanks for your response! So basically he asks me how I would realise this project and and what features I would implement. 2. Question is what could be possible problems and what are the solutions for it. Best regards
