Project Implementation 2 With the growing industry of information technology, it is always a challenge for businesses to stay ahead of the curve. The technology is changing so fast that by the time businesses have updated their information systems it could potentially be out of date. For this reason, it is paramount that businesses continue to pursue and analyze the technology developments and implement them when it is best for business. For this project I researched the possibility of upgrading the Military Health System (MHS) for the entire Department of Defense (DOD). It is a significant undertaking but can offer huge gains to both the clients and users. By upgrading the current system, the DOD would have to make the choice of whether they would purchase or lease the database management system. There are advantages gained by both situations. In purchasing the equipment, the DOD would gain ownership of the equipment and allow for a smoother transition by offering better training. Anytime new technology is implemented there is going to be training involved. By purchasing software and hardware from one vendor it only requires the users to learn one system. Some disadvantages of purchasing the equipment are the high costs associated with the initial investment and the potential of getting stuck with old equipment.

    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.

    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.
