IST352 – Information Analysis of Organizational Systems Development Lifecycle Final Project Guidelines Assignment Final Project (100 points) The final project is a semester-long research effort that pulls together the main concepts, principles and theories learned during the semester then synthesizes them into a single cohesive project. To do this you will solve the business problem described below using your newly developed systems analysis and design skills. The Business Problem Your employer, a large east coast university uses a Student Information System, called MySlice. It was purchased as a commercial off the shelf package from a software vendor in 1999. The system is a software package intended to allow students to register for courses, pay their tuition, view grades and perform a variety of other activities. As a systems analyst working for the university, you have been assigned to a new systems initiative titled MySlice 2.0. The project has been authorized (and funded) and is intended to provide the solution to solve some of the many shortcomings in the MySlice system. MySlice is an old legacy system that uses the dated, clunky, web-based interface, has inadequate application functionality, uses legacy technology for the database management system and uses dated commodity server hardware that provides very poor performance in terms of user response time and system availability. Your task is to determine the problems with the current system and to develop a design that solves these problems. What do I need to do? The final project will consist of four deliverables. Deliverables 1, 2 and 3 are preliminary deliverables and are designed to give you feedback on your progress. Deliverable 4 is the repackaged and improved upon Deliverables 1 - 3 plus the systems implementation and maintenance phases. You should incorporate the feedback from Deliverables 1, 2 and 3 into your Deliverable 4, which is your completed New System. All due dates are indicated in the

    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.
