Congratulations. Your project has been staffed and you are about to meet with the team for the first time. Initial impressions are important and you’ll need visuals for your presentation. Create a slide show (in PowerPoint or similar software) in which you address the following, in this order:
Goals: What the project hopes to accomplish.
Critical Success Factors: Identify at least four different stakeholders; for each, list at least two things that the stakeholder requires in order to deem the project successful.
Acquisition strategy: Should the system be built in house, created by a contractor, purchased off the shelf and customized, or leased as a service? Explain your rationale.
Resources: For in-house development, what people and skills are required and what development life cycle do you recommend? Otherwise, identify three candidate organizations that can deliver the system.
System functions: In a table format, summarize the types of users for the system; the business reason(s) each would use the system; the ways that the system supports each of these needs and how this support differs from the current system.
Connectivity: Provide a diagram that shows how the system will connect to the other information systems and what data flows among them.
Security: List the most serious cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities of the new system. Suggest strategies to address them.
Mobility: Identify the system’s capabilities for mobile use. Include a title and summary slide.
