Phase 2: Methodology to compare the old and new systems and the systems analysis
In Phase 2, you will develop a methods section, similar to a research methods section of a journal article, that highlights the framework and standards you will use to compare the old information system analysis and design to the new information system that is cloud-capable, highly available, scalable, and secure. You will use the methods section to compare the two plans.
This report must contain the following elements:
- See the grading rubric for all minimums.
- Cover page
- Table of Contents (TOC)
- Every section must be well supported with scholarly information systems journal articles.
- Introduction and conclusion section
- Please update your previous introduction and conclusion sections as appropriate
- A succinct, high-quality, and well-supported introduction and conclusion should be written
- It is necessary to highlight the objectives and findings of the project
- Introduce the primary goals of this particular phase, the coinciding objectives, and the outcomes.
- The conclusion should be the last heading, concluding the current stage and stating the upcoming objectives and deliverables in the next phase.
- Literature review and systems analysis and design methodology
- Constructs a well-supported review of literature related to the problem
- Develops a proper systems analysis and design comparison methodology in which to benchmark and test the information system
- Details and supports the objective framework(s) and standards that will be used to compare the old and new systems
- Uses the frameworks’ process accurately
- Systems analysis diagrams
- A minimum of two diagrams (2) are necessary for each required type, one diagram represents the existing system, and one diagram illustrates the newly re-designed, and improved system
- The following systems analysis diagrams are required:
- Use case diagrams for the old system and new system
- Written use cases (also known as use case descriptions) for the old system and new system
- Activity diagrams for the old system and new system
- Sequence diagrams for the old system and new system
- Screenshots are required for each diagram with a visible operating system date/time and unique desktop element showing that indicates it is your computer ( given )
- Describe the systems analysis as you complete it in a narrative form and link in each associated diagram referenced in the narrative using an appendix
