It's been over 24 hours and I haven't heard from anyone that can help me yet. Here is the assignment if the link to my document isn't working.
Your first task at Big Data Datacenter is to show some simple proof of concept types of activities. You will need Perl for the proof of concept activities, so you should download it if it is not already installed on your system.
Management is eager to see how Perl can connect and interact with databases and common gateway interface (CGI) applications.
For the database connection, you will need to download and install the database interface driver (DBI) and show the following using the Big_Data_Servers_Table.xlsx as your guide:
Server Name IP Status
PERLDB1 Production
PERLDB2 Development
PERLDB3 Development• A connection to a database
• A query from the database that returns all of the servers that have status of production
• An insert into the database that adds a new server to the table with ("PERLBD4",, "Development")
• An update to the database that changes PERLDB2 from development status to production status
• A delete on the database that removes the record information for PERLDB1 because it is no longer in service
For the CGI test, you should connect to the same data source and return the following:
• The number of rows in the Big_Data_Servers_Table.xlsx
• A query that shows all of the production servers
Use the attached spreadsheet as your guide. Your database and CGI tasks should reflect the actions against the spreadsheet as if it were a table in a database.
You can optionally download and install a small database and load it with the data from the spreadsheet. A simple, lightweight database will do, such as one of the following:
• Option 1
• Option 2
Complete the following:
• Provide a 2-paragraph summary on how you might use DBI and CGI to manage and report on information in a database.
• Share the syntax that is required to perform the DBI and CGI tasks. Simply cut and paste the Perl commands that you are using into a Word document.
Note: The IP should be completed in Word and should be professional in appearance and free of errors. Think of this as a memo to management where you are demonstrating your capabilities in this area.

I have done most of the work already and have received help from another tutor. I no longer need my question answered. Thank you. I have been waiting a long time to hear something and it was only after I had already talked with another tutor that I got the response. Please cancel my question. I tried to cancel it earlier but the site wouldn't let me.
