QUESTION:50ScenarioPlease read this scenario prior to answering the questionArchiSurance senior management, board members, customers and major stockholdershave long been concerned about disaster resiliency in light of the company's heavyreliance on a single data center. The data center is located in an area that is prone toflooding and earthquakes, according to expert assessments done by consultants retainedfor this purpose. In addition, the data center is located under a busy cafeteria, and wateroccasionally leaks through its ceiling.To adoress these problems, ArchiSurance has developed a plan to move from its currentdata center to a pair of ready-to-use data centers in separate cities. The data center moveis designed to reduce the risk of business interruption, reduce both planned andunplanned downtime for critical applications, and reassure ArchiSurance stakeholders.However, a number of limitations make theplanned transition to the new data centersparticularly challenging. A number of critical ArchiSurance applications cannot beoffline for more than an hour, and any downtime for these application must only occurin certain four-hour windows each weekend. Also, the move cannotoccur during quarterly or year-end closing periods in order to avoid interrupting criticalprocessing. Fulfillment of these specific type of requirements will reduce the risk ofbusiness interruption from the data center move activities themselves.ArchiSurance management has therefore planned a multi-phase data centertransformation program. All of the activities in each phase are necessary to ensure aprogression of stable and fully functional data center configurations. The first phaseconsists of detailed scheduling and planning to produce a comprehensive transformationplan that meets ArchiSurance timing and scheduling requirements During the secondphase, ArchiSurance is to contract for the hardware and software required for the newdatacenters,as well for refunds for the hardware and software to be returned from thecurrent data center once it is shut down. During the third phase, the new data centers areto be set up, and the new hardware and software are to be tested in parallel with what isalready in production. The actual transition between the old and new data centers occursin the fourth phase, and the fifth phase involves shutting down and dismantling the olddata center, and returning its hardware and software for contracted refunds. Phases twothrough five are each to be initiated when specific conditions are met in the previousphase.Refer to the ScenarioThe newly hired program manager for data center transformation has asked you todescribe the program implementation plan. You must express each of the plan phases asa separate work package with specific deliverables. You must also show therelationships between phases along with how each phase contributes to a particular
