Question Description

for the Portfolio Project, you will have one of two projects from which to choose. For Option #1, you will develop a technology project proposal that outlines a technology plan for a small firm. In Option #1, you have been hired as an IT expert by a small firm to set up an office for 20 staff members, half of whom will work with desktop computers, and the remaining with laptop computers using wireless networks. The office will use one networked laser printer, accessible both from the desktop and laptop computers. The desktop computers will use a wired network, while the laptop computers will employ a wireless network to print and access the Internet.

You will incorporate Phases 1-3 in your Portfolio Project as a technological proposal. Phases 1-3 serve as the basis of the project deliverable section in the technological proposal, which you will submit as a full project (Phase 4) in Module 8.

Phase 1:

  • Statement of the Problem or Need: Write a description of the purpose/need/rationale for a small firm. What problem(s) are you planning to solve for a small firm?
  • Project Deliverables: Write a description of the necessary hardware components and software to set up computer systems for the business/firm. Phase 1 of the Portfolio Project is due in Module 2.

Keep in mind that you will update the project deliverable section as you complete different phases and when you receive feedback from your instructor.

Phase 2:

  • Project Beneficiaries: Write a description of who will derive direct benefit from the project and how they will benefit.
  • Project Deliverables: Write a description of the computer network hardware necessary to set up the computer networks and the necessary software and protocols.

Keep in mind that you will update the project deliverable section as you complete different phases. Phase 2 of the Portfolio Project is due in Module 4.

Phase 3:

  • Assumptions and Constraints: Write a description of any assumptions and constraints regarding the project. Are there any assumptions made so far or constraints identified in the project? Are there any constraints or anything that would restrict the ability to achieve the IT project objectives successfully?
  • Project Deliverables: Write a description of what is necessary to acquire and install the computer and network security hardware and software. Phase 3 of the Portfolio Project is due in Module 6.

In Phase 4 you will include revisions based on feedback from your instructor, and you will incorporate what you have learned throughout the term. Your technological proposal should include the following:

  • Statement of the Current Problem: Describe the purpose/need/ rationale for the IT project. What problem is this IT project designed to address?
  • Project Deliverables and Beneficiaries: Describe the objective of the IT project; what is the IT project to achieve, create, or deliver? Please identify who will derive a direct benefit from the expected outcome.
  • Time Factors: Are there any time factors, such as deadlines, that should be considered in your IT implementation proposal? Create a timeline for implementation.
  • Qualifications: Write a short description of your qualifications.
  • Project Assumptions and Constraints: Are there any assumptions made so far or constraints identified in the project? Are there any constraints or anything that would restrict the ability to achieve the IT project objectives successfully?
  • Project Risks: Are there any risks associated with the IT project? For instance, will there be data that should not be available to the public? Are there any risks that might prevent a successful project outcome?
  • Project Expenses: Please indicate what IT expenses will be associated with this project as well as the sources for funding. Provide the most accurate estimates that you can, which includes the cost to complete the project and maintenance after the project.

The Portfolio Project should meet the following requirements:

  • Ten to twelve pages (minimum) in length, not including the cover and reference pages.

1. Statement of the Current Problem
This project addresses the overall problems of the employees of the Small IT Firm. The
objective is to reduce the work done manually in the sharing of files and also manual use of the
printers in the group. Using accessible technologies fit into small business is by identifying a
vision and objectives that set the groundwork for the IT firm.
This project will be beneficiary to any staff in the firm that will be using the internet and
a printer. The administrator in particular will be getting high benefits from it since a single
server will be used for both wired and wireless network.

Purpose for the IT Project:
This project will be built to facilitate the work done by the employees of the firm and
reduce the manual work in the sharing of files and printers in the group.

Need/Rational:
To develop a comprehensive set of requirements by describing the scope of the
accessibility needs of IT Firm and evaluating the current technology being used. IT is
implemented in almost every aspect of our daily lives. The need for more work done in the
most efficient way is required by employers, and this can be done by doing more and excellent
work in the least possible time.
The needs assessment task identifies the organization-wide accessibility needs, which
include specifying collaboration and communication needs among all employees "regardless of
abilities" and identifying the assistive technology needs of individuals with specific disabilities.

Problems to Solve:
As part of technology evaluation, ask the following questions about current technology:



How does your present technology meet your employees' and customers' needs?



Can employees effectively collaborate and communicate regardless of their abilities?



Is the technology flexible and does it allow customization so that individuals can be more
productive?

For small IT Firm it includes purchasing accessible technology and assistive technology
products and identifying internal technology systems that need to be updated to increase
accessibility. When setting up an IT project in a small firm, there are challenges that need
attention since the use of desktops and laptop are involved. The computers will require fast
processors, enough memory space, and excellent networking components. Problems such as:


Network related where one needs fast and uninterrupted internet speeds and also good
routers for wireless network. The computers should be able to support the a,b,g and n
wireless network.



Hardware related problems such as those of the power supply unit should be paid
attention to since the cable should not be all entangled on the motherboard preventing or
limiting the flow of air in and out of the computer.



More efficient record keeping of digital files and sharing or those files. A domain sharing
network will be much more efficient if the company or firm has to grow.

Project Deliverables and Beneficiaries

Objective of IT Project:
Create a unique vision that defines the role of accessible technology in the IT Firm and
how it will support the organization's overall vision of accessible technology objectives. The
objective is to define success metrics and clarify the specifics of the vision.

What is the IT project to achieve, create, or deliver?
A small IT firm is needed to set up an office for 20 staff members, half of whom will
work with desktop computers, and the remaining with laptop computers using wireless
networks. The office will use one networked laser printer, accessible both from the desktop and
laptop computers. The desktop computers will use a wired network, while the laptop
computers will employ a wireless network to print and access the Internet.
Hardware Components (laptops /desktops Computers and peripherals):


Power Supply: The PSU connection of the power supply should be compatible with the
computer system. A 20+4 pin P1 ATX connector will be good for a desktop computer in this
small firm. If extra power is required for the processor, an 8-pin a...
