CASE tools for this step in the SDLC do not have to be super complicated. Using something like Evernote would definitely get the job done, in addition to something like Google Keep. This way you’d be able to track everything that was discussed in the meetings and various
PIZZA PALACE SDLC 11 interviews cohesively and neatly. It may be tough to choose between the two, however; so here are some pros/cons of each. Pros Cons Evernote (Hambrick, n.d.). Super inexpensive Super flexible Search for documents by tag, keyword or notebook Automatically backed up to the “cloud’ Great for use in small offices (2 or 3 people) Can get started today Almost no training necessary Automatic and built- in, full-page OCR. No ability to block deleting Anyone can delete anything You have to manually log out of the phone app There is no audit trail You cannot index Limited capacity. (You won’t be able to put 10 gigs here) Microsoft Office docs are viewable in Evernote; they must be opened in their native app Docs are saved on pages, not as standalone docs Google Notes (Repaka, 2013). Simple and easy to use Looks good - colors, UI, etc. Fast and responsive - both the web and Android apps are very fluid. Search - it's fast on both web and mobile.

Something like that would look like this: (LearningComputer.com, n.d.) As for scalability of a system like this, it’s relatively endless. As long as it is re-optimized and separated for a different location then everything would smoothly. It would be as simple as migrating the systems “brain” but wiping its memory and starting it with a fresh database. This way reporting for separate locations would not get screwed up. As for the system’s database growing in itself at the single location, that would likely require a server upgrade for the system as a whole. That leads into the next point regarding total cost of ownership. For the total cost of ownership, it would include the costs of the following: Startup Costs: Operational Costs: Exit-Costs Software creation Cost of running Data Export
