This assignment consists of two (2) sections: a design document and a revised Gantt chart or project plan. You must submit both sections as separate files for the completion of this assignment.

Additionally, you may create and / or assume all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment.

Large companies have been using the power of business analytics for quite a while now. Your company desires to get in on the action; company executives believe that using advanced data analysis will enable the company to make smarter decisions and improve business performance. Business analytics gives companies the ability to look at past realizations and performance as well as set up new expectations and performance goals. Analytics-as-a-Service is a new delivery model that uses cloud technology to provide business insights without enormous infrastructure enhancements. The executive team has heard great things about analytics and cloud technology but is apprehensive because they are unfamiliar with the look and feel of the technology. The executive team is interested in your recommendations and eagerly awaiting your forward-thinking viewpoint.

Section 1: Design Document

  1. Write a four to six (4-6) page design document in which you:
  • Support the need for the use of analytics and cloud technology within this company.
  • Create a workflow diagram to illustrate how analytics and cloud technology could align with the company’s business processes. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length but must be included in the design document appendix.
  • Create three to five (3-5) screen layouts that illustrate the interface that organizational users will utilize. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length but must be included in the design document appendix.
  • Give one (1) recommendation for solution providers that could help your company secure a firm advantage by using analytics and cloud technology.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
  • Include charts or diagrams created in MS Visio or Dia as an appendix of the design document. All references to these diagrams must be included in the body of the design document.

Information Systems

Overview:

Basic knowledge of computers is practically essential for productively engaging in twenty-first-century life. Working knowledge of computer platform technologies impacts everyone from help-desk personnel and field technicians to project managers and business executives. In order to make sound business decisions, one must have the ability to analyze business needs and compare available computer technology options for effectively meeting those needs.

Scenario:

You have been hired as an IT consultant by an entrepreneur starting a small advertising company called MilleniAds. As a start-up, your client’s company is relatively small and has a limited budget. There are only 10 employees, including a few creative directors, graphic designers, sales staff, a financial accountant, and an office administrator, with the entrepreneur as CEO. The current IT budget cannot exceed $25,000 and ideally should come in as far under that number as possible. MilleniAds will produce customized sales flyers, brochures, and other branded items, such as letterhead and business cards, that apply a youthful, fresh perspective targeting millennial demographics. Therefore, the company needs the ability to store and manipulate digital images and to produce physical copies of their products for their clients. The CEO wants to keep track of inventory, sales, and expenses digitally, but she does not anticipate having very complex records for the first year. She projects having only a dozen or so accounts but hopes to scale up in the coming years. It would be ideal to have a simple and user-friendly system for sharing information and files between employees. Many of the employees are millennials themselves who have indicated that their current desktop PCs are limiting their capabilities and that they prefer using their phones and other mobile devices for their professional and personal responsibilities. Two of the ten employees will operate primarily outside of the office, soliciting business from regional firms, and they will need to access company information while on the road, in their home offices, and at customer sites.

Prompt:

Given the scenario above, what are the best software options for addressing your client’s business needs?

(Again, I only need the best software options.)

Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:

III. Software Applications

  1. Examine the business’s issues to determine specific software requirements. What are the types of software applications      that should be considered? Identify multiple possible options within each category, being sure to cite specific examples wherever appropriate.
  2. Then, compare and contrast the options you have listed. Be sure to cite specific evidence that supports your      evaluation. What are their functional strengths and weaknesses? How do  they compare in terms of cost, vendor credibility, multi-user access, technical support, and integration?
  3. Compose a final list detailing all of your specific software recommendations for your client. Be sure to logically justify your proposal as the best possible choice for meeting the business requirements.
