Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

the decision on building or buying a system is a decision that require one to thing on the advantages and disadvantage of both of them question that a rise is one about the cost of building one or buying one,the other thing the cost of maintenance if you build or you buy will it  be less expensive and availability of the spare parts those are the things one should look upon before making a desicion thanks for the opportunity to talk

  1. List and describe the advantages and disadvantages of building a system from the ground up.

advantages

- You can select every component that goes into your system
- You don't get anything you don't need/want
- Sometimes the warranty on an individual component is longer than a warranty on a pre-built system
- You learn a lot about how computers work
- You can possibly save money
- You don't have to use Windows if you don't want to 


Disadvantages:

- Can be intimidating for a first-timer (but it truly isn't that hard)
- Researching parts can take time
- The only tech support available is on web forums (free) or your local system retailer (not free)
- setting a system is expensive because it require a lot of money

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

  • If given a choice between a packaged solution and building one, which would you choose, and why?

Jun 5th, 2015

i would chose to buying one because buying a system would be less expensive and it would save time that could be incur in building also due to lack of expertise this means when building one you would incur another addedd cost for direct labour labour

  • After the system has been completely installed, a team member states that the systems analysts will now be in charge only of “putting out fires” experienced within the new system. How would you react to this statement?
  • Elaborate on what can be done to proactively prevent system problems, rather than just reacting to them after they happen.
