Network Implementation

1. You need to produce a scope statement, considering triple constraints. The project deliverables include:

  • Project management

The client's workforce is experiencing large downturns in productivity. This is thought to be a consequence of overloading and breakdown of computer systems. Installation and deployment of a modern network system may require the project management. This deployment would provide disaster mitigation measures, separation of Line of Business (LOB) applications and updating to the new edition of Microsoft SQL server, improved virus and malware identification, updated electronic messaging software package, and the current Office program set. Implementation of a Service Level Agreement ( SLA) to sustain the latest technologies up to the company stage needed. Training of consumers must be designed to ensure a seamless transfer to the latest programs.

  • Project requirements

The project's requirement is to improve the efficiency of Information Technology ( IT ) systems in accordance with CEO orders, minimize interruption of key IT systems, introduce a Service Level Agreement ( SLA) that best meets organizational requirements. The possibility of further delays is a critical issue as orders are currently running behind expectation and is in fact one of the main drivers for this change. This will have to be managed on a case-by - case basis and this possibility should be known to all customer account managers and prepared for contingencies. Training will be very important for achieving the productivity goals.

  • Scheduling requirements

The project is set to take a duration of 5 weeks. Test Design and components to order. Week 2 will involve software / test porting to the LOB, Time / cost fixed. Week 3 includes Build and test servers. Connect and check network modules- 120 hours. Week 4 will involve Servers and Pilot Installation, Train relevant staff- 80 hours. Week 5 requires carrying the program out to all customers-40 hours. The period estimates are based on the estimated overall design and execution periods of related projects performed in last 180 days. This estimation was founded on 1 December 2009, and is accurate until 1 May 2010. Project will take around one month to complete. There will be three operating days which would cause downtime.

  • Technical Specifications

The porting of the LOB program to the new SQL server version may require the use of a contract software developer and database programmer to assist with this process. Support is approved for outsourced contractors. Technical specifications involve app server with PIII 933 MHz 1GB Ram 100GB HDD - (32% free) Hosts LOB software and HR/Accounting applications, email server with PIV Xeon 3.0Ghz 2GB Ram 100GB HDD - (20% free) MSX03, Mgrnt with PIII 933 MHz 1GB Ram 100GB HDD - (8% free) Hosts DHCP, Active Directory and user account storage, SQL database server with PIII 933 MHz 1GB Ram 100GB HDD - (15% free) SQL Server 2000 1 Database with 20+ tables incl. Sales Customers Vendors Products Staff + supporting tables

  • SWOT analysis

Strength

Weakness

The company reported last financial year revenue of $3.5million.

Despite orders that were 5% higher than in the previous year, output is 5% lower.

A 7 per cent ($245,000) boost in the spending has been planned.

The production region decreased the productivity by 10 per cent relative to the previous year.

Increases in productivity are expected to return increased revenues of $200,000 per annum

Sales staff get several feedback from consumers about long delivery lead period for orders and the average order fulfillment period has risen from 3 minutes to 5 minutes.

Opportunities

Threats

The enterprise will have improved performance of information technology (IT) systems in line with CEO directives.

If the project is not completed on time and within scope, the productivity levels of the company and customer satisfaction will continue to decline affecting a number of items including retention of customers and employees and gross revenue.

It would reduce downtime within the organisation 's main IT processes.

 

Unexpected downtime may allow the build up of a backlog of orders. This build up may contribute to disappointment from the consumer and likely cancelled orders.

This can also introduce a Service Level Agreement ( SLA) that most efficiently meets corporate requirements.

Education of workers could have an effect if team members will not select their employees for training at the rostered times.

  • User documentation

User documents will include emergency mitigation measures, Line of Business (LOB) device separation and update to the current Microsoft SQL server edition, improved virus and malware detection, updated electronic messaging service package and the newest workplace technology package, implementation of a Service Level Agreement ( SLA) to sustain the latest technologies at the organizational level necessary. Training of consumers will be designed to ensure a seamless transfer to the latest programs.

  • Pilot

Installing and configuring a new network architecture requires programmed training , learning. This installation will include disaster recovery plans, isolation of Line of Business software (LOB) and upgrading to the latest version of Microsoft SQL server, improved virus identification and ransomware, updated electronic messaging security package and the new Workplace technology set. Implementation of a Service Level Agreement ( SLA) to enable the new systems at the organization's appropriate standard and customer training must be designed to facilitate a seamless transfer to the new systems.

  • Usability testing

Order processing times will be tested to return to an average of 3 minutes per order. This change will be checked to flow into output and to reverse the pattern of declining rates of performance. We will be checking customer satisfaction. Improved systems performance in accordance with CEO directives will be evaluated and downtimes for key IT systems reduced. The results of these measures will be analyzed. A Service Level Agreement ( SLA) will be tested, which better supports organizational requirements.

  • Automation of administrative tasks

The automation of administrative tasks will include:

  1. Filtering and reacting to letters.

  2. Planning appointments.

  3. Paying taxes.

  4. Creating plans.

  5. Dealing with customer requests.

  6. Accumulating customer data. 

  7. Inviting people from the Mailchimp email list to the customer relationship management source code.

  8. Using Gmail communications via Slack.

  9. Generating Google Drive components from documents in Dropbox.

  • Ongoing maintenance support

Server Build Manager maintains the Design system and the Build servers. Development Manager manages the Computer Network, Check Code, Check Components with the aid of the Application Construct Manager. Server Install Administrator frequently performs deployment, pilot and roll-out. The Buying Officer manages the components of the Contract.
