Tell the reader the structure and what is in the proposal. Briefly outline the project and what it does but remember the purpose of the introduction is to outline what you are going to say in the document. Again this is an introduction to the proposal and should only provide broad details. Use words like “The purpose of this document is to….” and then “This document covers …” Project Background and Justification Project Background DGTECH is a company situated in Melbourne, which has clients all over the world and a total of 150 employees working in three different locations. The company’s network consists of three servers and 150 workstations, each location contains one server and 50 workstations. Recently the company has identified some issues that could be improved. The first issue is that Employees usually work in two departments on two different projects and need to use the same applications. Therefore, the company has installed all software on every company’s computer. The Company must pay monthly fees for most of the applications, which is a high cost. The second issue is that sometimes employees cannot attend to the company as they are abroad on business trips or at home. In those cases they cannot make use of the applications the company is paying for. After searching on the web for possible solutions, the IT department has suggested a project, which consists in the Implementation of Xen Sever Technology. This technology enables the creation and management of virtualized server infrastructure. It is developed by Citrix Systems and is built over the Xen virtual machine hypervisor. XenServer provides server virtualization and monitoring services. The consolidation of the physical servers into multiple virtual machines could reduce the cost of hardware and the high cost of paying and installing licenses every month just by buying one license and putting it on the server, the app could be used and administrated to be used by multiple work stations. Also, the employees could work from home or overseas by logging to the Citrix client and use the apps remotely. Project Objectives The primary objective of the project is to reduce the high cost of software licence fees and to improve the flexibility of work anywhere outside of the company and secure login. The solution given by the IT department of the NMIT is to implement Xen Server Technology. Specifically these objectives are: Project Proposal <Project Title> Page 6
