CIS498 Week 6 Assignment – Infrastructure Design

Week 6 Assignment – Infrastructure Design

Overview

This is the third in a series of five sequential assignments (the course project) in which you continue to act as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of a hypothetical e-commerce start-up company of your design.

You have been working on delivering an information technology project plan in anticipation of the company relocating to a new facility.

In the first course project deliverable, you created a project plan inception document and supporting Gantt chart.
In the second course project deliverable, you developed the business requirements to be incorporated into the information systems design you are creating. You also updated your original supporting Gantt chart based on major and minor tasks identified in the business requirements document.
In this third course project deliverable, you will create an infrastructure design that considers the key elements of software, hardware, security, and business process flow for your e-commerce startup company. You will also use graphical tools to create a supporting data flow diagram (DFD) for your infrastructure design. The infrastructure design provides an opportunity to visualize the key elements and how they are connected for maximum effectiveness.

This assignment consists of two-parts:

Part 1: Infrastructure Design

You will create an 8–10-page infrastructure design document to include key technical elements for your hypothetical e-commerce company’s information systems infrastructure.

Part 2: Updated Gantt Chart

You will use Microsoft Project to again update the supporting project Gantt chart begun in your first course project deliverable:

You are not creating a new Gantt chart, only updating the one you created in the previous assignment with the major and minor tasks uncovered while creating the infrastructure design document.
Note:

You are to create or assume all necessary assumptions to successfully complete this assignment.
You must submit both parts as separate files to the assignment area. Label each file name according to the appropriate part.
