Summary Acacia's founder and CEO, Dan Hyun, had been acting as a 'one-man IT department' for the company since its inception in 1990. Early on, the IT infrastructure of the company was quite simple.

Needing a system to manage the company's growing production requirements and inventory, Hyun created a database on a computer in the company's warehouse using Access. He later expanded the Access database to house sales information.

As a small company, with limited cash flow, such mistakes could be disastrous. This case study examines this topic
