Project Deliverable 2: Business Requirements

 

Due Week 4 and worth 120 points

This assignment consists of two (2) sections: a business requirements
document and a project plan. You must submit both 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. Additionally, you may create and / or
assume all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this
assignment.

Documenting the existing IT network and system is an important first step,
but you, the CIO, know that capturing the needed changes can be critical to your
success as an executive. You know that procuring and documenting quality
business requirements is an important step toward the design of quality
information systems. Completion of a quality requirements document allows user
needs and expectations to be captured, so that infrastructure and information
systems can be designed properly. Using the requirements document provided in
the course shell as a part of the requirements gathering process, you are to
assess the needs of the company as it prepares to become a multinational
organization. You must consider current and future trends and requirements;
however, assumptions should be realistic and carefully considered. The needs of
the organization should be documented. Later deliverables will focus on
specifics of all requirements.  

Section 1: Business Requirements Document

Write a four to six (4-6) page original business requirements document for
the project plan using the template provided here. Note: The template can also be found in

    ensuring that necessary skill sets are identified.

  6. Speculate on possible outsourcing or offshoring needs that may be required
    to accomplish project.

  7. Define relevant terms that will be used throughout the project.

  8. Include cost projections for staffing, infrastructure, and other
