Description of Capstone Project

Use the company profile and scenario found here as the subject of your Systems Implementation Plan.

Capstone Project Activity – Unit 1

The first task for the team is to create the Systems Implementation Plan document shell that includes the sections denoted below. As you progress through each project phase, you will add the necessary content to each section of the capstone project document. Appropriate research and collaboration between team members should be conducted to support the multi-disciplinary solution.

Download the template found here for this project. This will serve as the basis for the capstone project for the course. Throughout the course, you and your team will develop and add content to this template. In other words, the team will add different information to this template each week. Like all projects, information will be gathered and added to the final deliverable on a weekly process. The final deliverable will evolve throughout the course as the team works together on various elements. Submittal to the group area resulting from the team effort will occur in Unit 4.

New Content for Week 1: Planning and System Requirements

For this week’s contribution to the overall capstone project, the team will specify the following:

  • The pertinent requirements
  • Propose the necessary solution elements (related to the IT disciplines)
  • Develop a high-level plan for implementing the solution

This first section of the Systems Implementation Plan should answer the following questions:

  • What specific and detailed requirements are addressed in the solution, and how?
  • What does Verbania need from an IT perspective to set up the needed infrastructure?
  • What is included in the solution’s hardware and software infrastructure?

Include a high-level network diagram that illustrates the required hardware and software infrastructure on the company’s premise. Explain access from the perspective of employee (internal and external access) and end user (remote access).

Within the template, prepare 5-7 pages of content describing Planning and System Requirements within Section 1.
