Ranging from the academic side to the accommodation side and even the welfare. This project will aim to narrow down on the academic department specifically and how everything related to academics is run within the school without turbulence. This project was conducted by Nedder Company with the help of the management team of Fanatics, Inc. The objectives of the research project were to find approaches that can be used to modernize the enterprise system architecture of Fanatics, Inc. Architecture Evaluation Company Profile Fanatics, Inc. was established by Michael Rubin who is also a former Chief Executive Officer of GSI Commerce. Today, Fanatics, Inc. is a leading global licensed sports merchandise. The company has gone through a variety of transformations that are aimed at improving the way fans purchase their favorite jerseys and team apparels. It achieves this through selling fan gear by considering the in today’s on-demand culture. Fanatics Company employs an innovative and technology-infused approach when making its sales. After Nedder conducted proper data and statistics analysis of Fanatics, Inc., it was clear that the firm required to address its response issues for better running of the business. After proper analysis, the company’s management team decided to join hands with Nedder to find solutions to improve on its IT Infrastructure and enterprise system architecture to create a better venue for its clients. Transforming the firm’s IT infrastructure is paramount in propelling the firm to higher levels. Enterprise System Architecture Definition Document 4 Introduction Various organizations have had to switch their mode of operations to a more convenient and time efficient method. When opting for this kind of change, automation has always been the go-to options did research on Nedder University' academic department. The issue of the interrelationship between school buildings and the quality of the education they offer has always been an area of interest for research and studies. Nedder happens to be a University with a population of over 20000 students. It was my interest to dig into how this institution manages to operate at least normally in their day to day activities. Overview The architecture of a system could be defined as the description of the given system's structure and its behavior in general (Wang, de Freitas, & Lanctot, 2016). These structures could be in the form of human beings, applications and buildings. Nedder sits on a 3-acre piece of land with state-of-the-art buildings. It relates to well-lit street and well-constructed pavements. In its proximity, it is regarded as the best institution when infrastructure is the factor. Nedder also has the best research facilities in the region. The university has been praised time and again. The objectives of conducting an architectural evaluation could be as follows: • Advancing and transferring architectural knowledge • Architectural decision making • Identifying of loopholes in the whole system • Choosing among several candidates which one is the best. For a non-technical audience, the academic side could be well suited for their day to day activities and performance. This is because of how the structures are well laid and the patterns within which they follow when observed. Enterprise System Architecture Definition Document 5 I'd compare my high school's architectural model to that of my nearest hospital's. They are quite alike in many ways. But the two models do not equate that much to Nedder University's architectural model. The High School has many features through which are nearly like those found in the University. The High School model is the preferred type because it of its flexibility that compares to that of the University. Both are facilities that host many students per unit time that is why they look so alike in their architectural models. Both Nedder and the High school have had their infrastructure mainly made for the learner-centered type of experience. Nedder reviewed and evaluated the present enterprise system architecture for Fanatics Company then created a course of actual and visionary actions based on the resources that the company had access to. It was found that Fanatics Company needed to automate its systems to ensure that clients can access most of its services by use a few clicks. To achieve this, Fanatics collaborated with Nedder to conduct genuine surveys and research projects with the aim of getting the real feelings, opinions, complaints, and general issues from its clients. After completing its survey, Nedder and Fanatics put the gathered information and resolutions into action. Nedder Company knew that designing the course of action was as important as its implementation. Moreover, price, charge, and quotations should be made clear. According to Nedder, Fanatics Company needed to evaluate its architecture system and make a follow up by demonstrating the availability of its enterprise software. There were a variety of options that Fanatics could employ in acquiring its enterprise software. It could confirm the availability of the software by buying it off the shelf, designing it from scratch, or purchasing an already existing one then do some modification. Enterprise System Architecture Definition Document 6 The CEO, his team, and Nedder started by evaluating the existing enterprise system architecture for the firm. The team followed by developing a course of action that depended on the assets and resources the company’s enterprise system architecture supports. The resources were also useful to the firm. The team wanted to automate all the systems of the company. Also, the firm wanted to face-lift the company’s software central administration systems. Consequently, U.S. Sports Fanatics management team subjected their energies to the exercise of identifying the disadvantages and advantages of the selected model basing on the effect it has on the normal operations of the firm. The CEO and the team conducted interviews, surveys, site visits, questionnaires, and observations as approaches to finding facts data and statistics that will be utilized in improving the firm’s ESA. After completing the fact-finding stage, the team engaged in designing the course for action. Through this, the architecture system of U.N. Sports Fanatics was evaluated. Its availability was demonstrated through purchasing and existing architecture software with a code and intended to modify it to suit the firm’s needs. The CEO and the rest of the team decided to task Nedder Company with the responsibility of commence their project on evaluating the present state of the firm’s enterprise system architecture (ESA). The team proceeded to create a course of action that was based on the materials that were supported by enterprise system architecture. The resources that they based on were also used at the company. The project was set in an approach that discussed how the team intended to automate the company operations and renovate its enterprise system software. All the information that was collected through a variety of data and statistics collection such as questionnaires, site visits, observation, interviews, and surveys was put into consideration. The team evaluated the system then demonstrated its availability by buying a system software off the shelf. The management team begun by evaluating the existing enterprise system architecture Enterprise System Architecture Definition Document 7 (ESA). After evaluating, Nedder would then engage in developing a course of action for the proposed standards. The attainment of the proposed standard was set to depend on the resources that the company had and those that were useful. Data collection was one of the most complex exercise throughout the project. It involved data collection using a variety of methods such as observation, visiting the sites, interviews, and questionnaires. Data collection was aimed at finding facts and the correct statistical data from reliable sources. Architecture evaluation involved the examination of the present enterprise system architecture (ESA) for the company. The team then followed by developing a course of action that depended with the company’s resources. The project developers also discussed how they would automate the firm’s enterprise software. They used a variety of data collection approaches such as questionnaires, interviews, visiting sites, surveys, and observation. They used these data collection methods with the aim of attaining facts that would help in creating positive approaches of transforming the entire system. Enterprise System Architecture Definition Document 8 Infrastructure Evaluation Project Outline Nedder Company has engaged in conducting a research on the enterprise system architecture evaluation of U.N. Sports Fanatics, LLC. Nedder aimed at evaluating and analyzing the best approaches that can be considered in modernizing the enterprise system of U.N. Sports Fanatics. Company Profile United States Sports Fanatics, LLC is a globally recognized company. It has been in existence for over 16 years now.

The CEO and his fellow management team members saw it essential to involve Nedder in finding ways to transform the company’s face, both locally and internationally. They emphasized on improving the firm’s enterprise system architecture together with IT Infrastructure with the aim of creating a better venue. Content List In the quest to having optimized IT models the people concerned need to carefully go through their existing IT infrastructures and therefore make choices depending on what they need. Without doing this, the organizations risk incurring a lot of repeated costs and therefore being uneconomical. This paper goes through the entire infrastructure evaluation and most Enterprise System Architecture Definition Document 9 importantly the key elements of infrastructure evaluation. When conducting an Information Infrastructure Evaluation, it is vital to get hold of the following steps to avoid misappropriation of time and resources. Dedupe the main back up environment. Back up has always the pinching part of many IT departments. It is very fundamental for its department to make sure their back up system is not only working but bulletproof to any intruders who could breach it and lead to a lot of data loss and system confusion. In an optimized IT model, back up together with recovery are the largest benefactors from a cost saving and economic perspective. Fix the network mainframe The local area network and wide area network must be stable enough to assure of high performance for all the parties having access while also providing residual bandwidth for data movement between two points. It is critical to ensure that all data is optimized, and minimal bandwidth is required. Optimize serves and applications All serves rooting to the mainframe of the IT department must be optimized, and all applications have done the same. This will assure the organization of a cost-saving Information Infrastructure evaluation. Virtualize your storage area The area from which the whole evaluation is going to be improved to should be conceptualized and virtualized. This will help in making sure that the whole idea is not being done from a blind point of persecution. Enterprise System Architecture Definition Document 10 Ensure you have a Continuity Plan When going down the evaluation roamed is important for the organization not to forget about the life after the evaluation. That is why it is advisable to have a continuity plan in place just in case things don't go as planned in the whole revamping of the Information system. Enterprise Systems Tools/Processes Nedder decided to use one of the best evaluation approaches of IT Infrastructure and ESA. The method involved an elaborate study of the system in use then evaluate what was needed to change from tedious paperwork to automated systems. Moreover, the new system layout was intended to motivate the user while saving the clients’ time and offering them impressive results. The CEO, the team, and Nedder started the evaluation process by studying and examining the current IT Infrastructure system then came up with ideas of what is needed to achieve an automatic one and dump the tiresome paperwork method. They decided on creating a system that would be time-conscious, saves on resources, and motivates the user. Nedder studied the current IT Infrastructure system and looked for ways that can be used to transform it from tedious paperwork to an automated program. The research project team wanted to achieve a platform that would be user friendly, saves time, and minimizes wastage of resources.
