Customer Question

This assignment consists of two (2) sections: a project introduction 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.You are a newly appointed Chief Information Officer (CIO) of a $25 million dollar data collection and analysis company that has been operating less than two (2) years. It is expected to grow by 60% over the next eighteen (18) months. Your company currently collects data using Web analytics and combines it with operational systems data. Web analytics is an increasingly important part of most business marketing plans. Your company is looking for ways to leverage the collected data but wants to ensure that the information technology infrastructure will support the expected growth that the company is anticipating. The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) has given you sixty (60) days to deliver a comprehensive information systems project plan to address the organizational growth that the company is experiencing. The company will be expanding from one (1) floor to three (3) floors within six (6) months. Since this is a relatively new company, there is currently limited technology infrastructure to support the business. All information technology (hardware and software) must be redesigned to meet organizational needs. The solution should be implemented in either a hosted solution, on-site solution, or a hybrid model. The CEO is expecting you to integrate different technologies from different partners and incorporate industry best practices and cost-effective solutions in connection with the development of technological systems. In addition, the CEO is extremely interested in cloud computing technologies and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) but is leery of security issues that may be associated. However, he is sure that you will implement proper security protocols. The company currently consists of twenty (20) employees of which four (4), including yourself, are dedicated to the IT organization.Section 1: Project Introduction

Expert:  David L. replied 9 months ago.

Hello,

Sorry but I this project will take too long for me to complete by Friday. Can the due date be extended?

Thanks,

David.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
How many more days you need?
Expert:  David L. replied 9 months ago.

I would not be able to complete it until mid next week. The offer amount also does not cover the work required to complete the project.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
When you say mid next week that means, Wednesday? How much will you charge me?
Expert:  David L. replied 9 months ago.

The project requires a significant amount of work and research that is not covered by the offer. Raising the offer to 120.00 would cover the work involved.

I would be able to complete the project by Thursday next week.

Thanks,

David.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Ok deal. So can I give you $80?
Expert:  David L. replied 9 months ago.

Hello,

To cover the work involved it would be 120.00 however I can meet you in the middle with 100.00.

Thanks,

David.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Ok, $100. How do I pay the rest of the money?
Expert:  David L. replied 9 months ago.

You could either change the offer amount or add it as a bonus when you provide a positive rating after I post the report.

Thanks,

David.
