RUNNING HEAD: PROJECT ISSUES 1 The Issues encountered with our project Excelsior College At the beginning of the project we layed down a plan in order to monitor our sections of the project to keep them on track.

PROJECT ISSUES 2 and have outweighed them with gains. One of our major risks was the new hardware being compatible with the current network. So we will analyze this one major risk and its potential impact to the scope of the project. Three of our monitoring methods will be detailed in how we employ these tactics to track the different elements to our project. And lastly, we will discuss one thing that went wrong and how it altered the course of our project. Due to our business being fairly new, we purchased some lower end network switches and routers to keep startup costs low. This has worked out extremely well with our expectations. Now that we are expanding we discovered that Cisco has discontinued the current LAN hardware line that we are using. Now we are risking the new equipment not being compatible with the hardware currently in place. This can cause budget issues because we are already committed to the project and money has already been spent. Worst case scenario we would have to upgrade the entire LAN just to ensure everything works. The issues lies within the logical portion of the network and not the physical. The different routing and switching protocols in the routers is what is posing the threat. Although everything is connected, they information will not flow freely due to this potential problem. If this found out to be true, then this will cause major delays in the project.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
