Enterprise Solutions Report

Enterprise Solutions Report

Question description

The goal of the Capstone Project is to develop an enterprise solutions report that could be used to help guide executive management in making information technology decisions for an organization. The following elements should be included in your enterprise solutions report:

Executive Summary (summary of all deliverables)

High-level executive summary (1-2 pages) that includes a summarized view of the comprehensive life-cycle plan, network and server upgrades, security plan, and cloud-based services. Your executive summary should communicate clearly and flow logically and should not be a basic excerpt from each section written.

Comprehensive Life-Cycle Plan

Deliverable summary (one paragraph)
Deliverable presentation (as developed in Week 7 Capstone assignment: no more than five slides, with notes in the note section as a narrative explaining each slide)
Deliverable:
Scenario: The organization has 5,000 employees who are located throughout several locations within the continental United States. Most of the company’s computers are Windows 7 PC’s/laptops. The organization has no special PC needs for specialized skills such as CAD or engineers, for example. Employees for this organization rely heavily on the PCs they use to complete day-to-day tasks.

Using the above scenario, develop a comprehensive plan for keeping PCs upgraded and functional through a proper hardware/software life cycle. As you develop a life cycle, create a core list of software applications for all computers that should properly compliment the need for efficiency and collaboration among workers. The software requirements should drive the specs for the next round of hardware requirements. Imagine that you are the consultant recommending a plan, and include the specs for the next PC and laptop users will be upgrading to in the first life cycle. Include state-of-the art mobile devices such as tablets and other smart devices for professional use only. Personal uses of organizational resources are prohibited.

This deliverable should be no less than two full pages in length and should include at least three outside credible resources.

Network and Server Upgrades :

Deliverable summary (one paragraph)
Deliverable presentation (as developed in Week 7 Capstone assignment: no more than five slides, with notes in the note section as a narrative explaining each slide)
Deliverable:
Scenario: The organization has a basic IPv4-based infrastructure using a Windows 2008 server-based structure. There is a generic shared drive that has turned into a “virtual dumping ground” for files used across departments. Accounting department users do not have the same access to sales department folders, so this shared folder is the solution used for cross-department collaboration. There are many important files that cannot be deleted, but this shared drive is causing a problem.

Using the above scenario, develop a plan to upgrade the existing network to IPv6 as well as to upgrade the existing server structure. You must outline the reasons for upgrading both the server and infrastructure as well as include the potential risks for doing so. You must also find a sustainable and collaborative solution to eliminate the dependency on the shared drive.

This deliverable should be no less than two full pages in length and should include at least three outside credible resources.

Security Plan :

Deliverable summary (one paragraph)
Deliverable presentation (as developed in Week 7 Capstone assignment: no more than five slides, with notes in the note section as a narrative explaining each slide)
Deliverable:
Scenario: In this organization, all data is considered sensitive and all email communications are considered sensitive to classified. All digital assets must be secure including internal/external communications. Formal policies, procedures, and training are essential elements to securing an organization.

Using the above scenario, develop a comprehensive security plan that includes physical, application, operational, and remote security elements. You are also to develop and/or adapt a computing use and acceptable internet use policy for the organization. A remote access policy and procedure must be developed to include the considerations of the teleworker/telecommuter.

This deliverable should be no less than three full pages in length and should include at least three outside credible resources.

Cloud-Based Services

Deliverable summary (one paragraph)
Deliverable presentation (as developed in Week 7 Capstone assignment: no more than five slides, with notes in the note section as a narrative explaining each slide)
Deliverable:
Scenario: Software as a service is growing and cloud-based services cannot be ruled out as a means to streamline IT needs. The cloud offers everything from storage to email to productivity applications. Cloud-based solutions allow for savings on IT staff and infrastructure. Based on the solutions provided in previous Capstone assignments in this course and the needs of the infrastructure, explore the possibility of utilizing the cloud and cloud-based services to streamline the complete infrastructure.

Using the scenario above, look at cloud-based services for business continuity, disaster recovery, storage, applications, and any other cloud-based service that would prove cost effective without compromising operations. For every element that is and is not maintained using the cloud, a detailed explanation, including the advantages and disadvantages, must be explained. For cloud-based services that will be used, a detailed explanation must be included on how the decision was made.

This deliverable should be no less than two full pages in length and should include at least three outside credible resources.

Conclusion

Appendices as needed

Your well-written Capstone Project should be clear, engaging, original, and focused, with ideas and content that are richly developed with details and examples. The project should be presented coherently to move the reader through the details of the proposed enterprise solutions. You should submit one document with all of the above elements; to include PowerPoint slides and notes in a Word document, copy and paste the slides as images into the Word document and copy and paste the notes below each associated slide.
