1. Distinguish between systems professionals, end users, and stakeholders. Systems professionals: are the one that actually engineer, operate and maintain de system. End users: are those that use the computer systems in the organization and don’t have right to maintain them. Stakeholders: are those in the managerial role and in the C suite. They have interest in the system but they are not part of the regular users. 2. What is the role of the accountant in the SDLC?

Accountants are as concerned with the integrity of this process as they are with any manufacturing process that has financial resource implications. The accountant’s responsibility is to ensure that the systems apply proper accounting conventions and rules and possess adequate controls.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
