Hello everybody,

I have been invited to a case interview, which is described as follows:

Technology cases/application: This segment allows students to show how they approach technology-related problems.

I am not really sure what I can expect from this type of case. Does anybody have any experience with cases like this and could give me an example of a similar case?

Thank you very much for your help!

Hi,

I have not seen any digital cases online but I have some, so feel free to reach me for prep.

For the IT cases, I recommend reading the articles of the consulting companies about these topics on their websites (Hundreds of them if you google by key words "agile", "Digital", at McKinsey, BCG or Accenture)

Here is a list of potential topics you need to know:

  • Cloud (cloud vs own servers pro and cons, uptime % SLAs, load balancing, etc)
  • Security (encryption basics, cloud security)
  • Agile and development (Agile principles)
  • M&A and IT (Will it be one system or two systems? Is it "Adopt and go" approach or we take the best of both systems and create a new one? Integrate now, innovate later? Or Innovate now, when you have time?)
  • IT strategy and Digital transformation (Similar to M&A)
  • IoT (Mainly the use of IoT in operations - Process steps completion, measuring temperature, maintenance measurements, other measurements, predictive algorithms, etc)

Good luck!
