Question Description

This is the very last capstone assignment for the course. It references a group project that has already been completed (attached: Titled Guardians of the Galaxy Unit 4), as well as Verbania's specifications (also attached). I began with the template required and attached that as well so that the right formatting is already setup (attached-titled Unit 5).


***This must be completed by this Friday 5/27/2016 midnight. 



System Implementation and Maintenance

  • A set of maintenance tasks

System Implementation and Maintenance Framework

  • List system implementation milestones that Verbania can expect for this project.
  • Provide user training needs and specific training information.
  • List the required maintenance routines or security measures that will ensure the long term success of the solution.
  • Prepare 3–4 pages covering details regarding system implementation and maintenance framework. Insert this information into Section Five of the template. Submit the complete document containing all elements of the activities as an individual assignment.

Executive Summary

  • Compose a high-level summary of the Systems Implementation Plan that you are presenting to Verbania. The purpose of this section is to provide your client with an easy-to-read description of the project, describing what it will mean for the company.

Final Insights From Capstone Experience

  • Describe how the team successfully collaborated to develop a cohesive and comprehensive solution.
  • Identify the best practices, techniques, and technologies employed throughout the process.
  • Specify benefits to Verbania resulting from this solution.
  • Discuss your areas of strengths while contributing to this project.
  • Summarize areas of growth uncovered during this capstone project.

Section One: Planning and System Requirements
Assumptions:

Verbania Inc. has reached out to my consulting firm to bring them into today’s society of
social networking. Since 2001 when they previously shutdown during the internet burst, the
way society communicates has grown to a point where everyone is connected in some way or
fashion 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Based on this we will build out an application for Verbania that will have the user
connected in social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Snapchat, Instagram, Tumbler, Vine
and etc.) This application will allow the users to first customize a profile for them and store
them information and keep a unique profile for them within the application. Customers will be
allowed to view and post questions on a forum discussion board. Also will have the ability to
search other users and post friendships, along with have calendar functionality within the
application. Once of the main features of the application will allow you to have instant
messaging within the application along with the ability to have a secure email account created
once the customer signs up for the application.

System Requirements
In order to accomplish these tasks for the application the company will need to bring
several stakeholders together to accomplish this project. We will also need to put together a
hardware and software requirements needed in order to complete this project.

Design & Development
Once we have established the requirements and they are established what is needed, we will start
to design the Social Mobile Application.

Based on this we will need to have a clustered SQL

Server environment set up for redundancies, the database will house Social Mobile Application
data. Because we are building this application to grow in size, you will need to build out the
hardware to have the ability to grow on the fly, depending on finical constraints. The primary
design should consist of at least 1 application server along with a cluster SQL server

User Requirements
To build out this application we will first start with identifying how to build out the users profile
for the customer. The easiest way to do this would be to tie in the application to other social
networks that they are already using. When a customer starts out to join on the application we
can have them retrieve via rest API call from other social media applications (Facebook, Twitter,
LinkedIn, Snapchat, Instagram, Tumbler and Vine). If customers are not comfortable with
connecting their other social network accounts, they can join building their profile with entering
their email and creating a password to join.
Once a user has joined the application we will have a feed, this is needed to have the
customers engaged in the application. Content will show up in the feed can either be shared by
the users in the form of user generated stories, photos, video, or curated by the application
admin.
As the application is built out we want to make sure that the customers have the ability to
connect with each other, this will be addressed in the application by having the ability to instant

message each other or create a group chat within the application. This feature will also take
advantage of mobile devices to show up even when the application is minimizing in the back
ground.
With the application we will tie in the feature to allow events to be published to the
calendar on the mobile device or within email client. In the age where everything is digital, this
allows us to keep up with online communication in a real world setting.
We will also tie in the ability to search not only by username, but also filter it to include
location, sex, hobbies jobs, and/or any other information that is related with the profile.

Company Requirements
The main thing for the company is to make sure we have a robust database. Our
recommendation would be to setup a SQL Database that is clustered for redundancies. You
want to make sure that the database will be able to handle queries on the fly coming from
multiple sources online. Because of this you want to make sure that whatever server physical or
virtual it sits on can handle the load with easy.
Along with the database you want to design an Admin Panel for the mobile application
that will be able to support the application users. This Admin Panel should have the
functionality to important when the questions are very precise and associated to user’s account,
personal attributes or payments. In addition to the user management, the admin panel can also be
used to keep some control over the user generated content.
One recommendation I made for the Verbania project was to use what is called a LAMP
stack which consists of the Linux operating system, Apache web server, MySQL data base, and
PHP, Python or Pearl programing language. This will create a dynamic web application with
integrated software that will contain all of the components needed. This is open source

technology and is very popular because everything is free of cost and there is a large community
built around these technologies. Finding answers to questions that may arise during development
of the website are not too difficult when using a LAMP stack. The main reason it is called a stack
is because each particular level derives from the base layer. The operating system is Linux which
is the base layer and can provide enterprise performance. The Apache web daemon which is
industry grade sits on top of the operating system .The data base MySQL stores all the
information for example customer or client data, which is served by the web daemon and PHP.
Sometimes the PHP script language may be substituted for Python, or Pearl as the scripting
language. PHP might be the better choice because PHP does include MySQL data base
integration. From what I have researched on the internet the LAMP stack is very versatile and
can be arranged in to multiple configurations that can produce an infinite range of web
applications. There is also the opportunity for developers to write applications that can interact
with different networks which will add users, and social network functionality to the social
media website. This method is us...

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
