Please help me answer three problems for accounting information system class. Type up at least 3-5 sentences and explain each question clearly.
- 1. Using the 15-15 rule as a guide, when would a project manager and/or project sponsor proceed with completion of a project even if it is both 15 percent over budget and 15 percent off the initial schedule?
- 2. In the chapter, we discussed an example of Starbucks using the systems development life cycle to develop the capability to analyze what type of pastries sell best with its various hot and cold drinks. Now, let’s suppose that NASDAQ requires all of the firms trading on the exchange to report their financial statements not only using GAAP but also International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Because Starbucks’ current system cannot handle the IFRS requirements, the financial reporting system must be modified. Using Starbucks as an example, explain what types of activities would occur in each of the five phases of the systems development life cycle in preparation for reporting financial results according to IFRS.
- 3. Brainstorm a list of reasons why 68 percent (including 44 percent challenged + 24 percent failed) of the information technology projects either failed or were challenged in 2009. Consider specifics of each of the elements of the triple constraints model and any other common delays, including the challenges of working with programmers, software and hardware suppliers and vendors, and the like. What is the best way to overcome these issues and decrease the number of projects failed or challenged?
