For the assignments in this course, you will be developing a comprehensive Systems Integration Design Proposal as your capstone project. Your first task in this process will be to select an enterprise to use as the basis of your project. You will also create the shell document for the final capstone project deliverable, which you will be working on during each unit. As you proceed through each project phase, you will add content to each section of the final document to gradually complete the final project delivery. Appropriate research should be conducted to support the analysis in your report, and assumptions may be made when necessary.
Submit the project proposal to your instructor for approval.
Create the Systems Integration Project Proposal document shell.

System Integration Implementation Plan (Week 5)
Provide a brief description of the enterprise (can be hypothetical) where the system integration design proposal has the potential of being adopted.
Describe the overall project objectives.
List the business or technical needs that will be met by the project.
List the major components of the project (major systems that will be integrated).
This list may change after further analysis is completed.
List the boundaries of the project (what the project will not address).
Material can be taken from the approved proposal that you submitted.
Be sure that this project is approved by the instructor.
Capstone Project Plan
This contains the work breakdown structure (WBS) for all of the tasks that will be required to complete the capstone project.
Determine the start and completion dates (within the course's start and end dates).
List other resources that are required to complete the project.
System Integration Best Practices
Based on what you learned during completion of the Discussion Board activity, identify best practice areas you will cover in your project.
Provide a diagram that shows the process flow that you intend to use for designing the systems integration architecture.
