Term Paper: Future Research and Development in Software Engineering

Due Week 10 and worth 200 points

This assignment consists of two (2) sections: a research report and a PowerPoint presentation. You must submit the two (2) sections as separate files for the completion of this assignment. Label each file name according to the section of the assignment it is written for.

Section 1: Research Report

Imagine you are employed as a senior software engineer in a company that designs and produces mobile software applications for health-care providers. Your CIO has asked you to research trends in mobile software development so that your organization is prepared for the next wave of software innovation. The focus of your efforts will be on deciding whether to utilize the Android, iOS, or Microsoft tablet development approach while keeping in mind that you need to make a recommendation that will allow your company to launch its product to customers in 90 days or less using an agile methodological approach. Your research must consider all three (3) platforms with a recommended course of action on one. 

Write a ten to fifteen (10-15) page paper in which you:

  1. Identify trends in mobile software development and explain why they are relevant to the scenario described above.    
  2. Explain how the different mobile platform will affect the different phases of requirements, design, development, and deployment of the mobile software product.
  3. Make a recommendation on which mobile platform to use and justify the recommendation.
  4. Describe the agile methodological approach that you would implement to bring the product to the market in 90 days or less.
  5. Propose a testing plan to ensure that the developed product is both valid and verifiable.
  6. Use at least six (6) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources. 

Section 1 of this assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
  • Include charts or diagrams created in MS Visio or Dia as an appendix of the project plan. All references to these diagrams must be included in the body of the project plan.

Section 2: PowerPoint Presentation

You have also been asked to develop a presentation to be shown to your Senior Executive Board to explain why you have chosen to implement the specific strategy outlined in your research report.

Prepare a ten to fifteen (10-15) slide PowerPoint presentation in which you:

  1. Summarize the main points in the research report.
  2. Create bulleted speaking notes for the presentation to the executive board in the Notes section of the PowerPoint. Note: You may create or assume any fictitious names, data, or scenarios that have not been established in this assignment for a realistic flow of communication.
  3. Use a professional technically written style to graphically convey the information.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Develop practices to evaluate products, processes, and system resources.
  • Develop a software engineering plan to address and solve a proposed business problem.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in software engineering.
  • Write clearly and concisely about advanced software engineering topics using proper writing mechanics and technical style conventions
