IT 200 Final Project Guidelines and Rubric

 

Overview

 

Successful professionals in the IT environment need to be familiar with the fundamental IT tools and applications that are used in everyday functions and know

 

how these tools and applications interrelate. The final project for this course is a Company Consult Debrief that illustrates a systems view of a company?s

 

technology infrastructure and the interrelationships between components such as networks, data management, programming, web technologies, and

 

information assurance. A detailed company scenario is provided, with supporting databases, tables, table inventory, and query orders.

 

Three milestones support the development of the project. These are designed to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be

 

submitted in Modules Three, Five, and Six. The final submission will occur in Module Seven.

 

This assessment will assess your mastery with respect to the following course outcomes: Apply fundamental IT terminology appropriately in highly structured situations

 

Illustrate the applicability of foundational information technologies for specific professional environments

 

Assess fundamental IT concepts at the component level in rationalizing recommendations for business environments

 

Illustrate interrelationships among key concepts of IT for developing a systems view of information technology Prompt

 

Scenario: The new owner of Swagger Distribution Company, a company that distributes clothing and apparel, does not have experience with IT-related problem

 

solving, so she is contracting you, an IT consultant. You will review the company?s technology infrastructure and the interrelationships between components such

 

as HCI, networks, data management, programming, web technologies, and information assurance. You will assess the current infrastructure and programming

 

modifications, network optimization, and improvements to security procedures, and provide your feedback and recommendations.

 

1. Human-Computer Interface (HCI): On a daily basis, Swagger Distribution?s employees log in to the company?s network and utilize many different types

 

of software and the internet. They use Microsoft Word and Microsoft Visio daily.

 

2. Databases: Swagger Distribution?s partners/customers include a variety of clothing companies. Swagger Distribution utilizes a database to store

 

information on the partner companies and the orders that are received. You will review the provided database for Swagger Distribution and summarize

 

what the tables contain and what the queries do. Be sure to apply key terms that you have learned such as ?metadata.? Based on information provided,

 

you will change one data type in one of the tables.

 

3. Programming: Every day, when an employee of Swagger Distribution signs on to her computer, a pop-up window opens and gives a greeting to the

 

employee. The new owner would like to continue to have the pop-up window but would like to change the greeting.

 

4. Networking: There are two possible configurations for Swagger Distribution?s network: a wired version and a wireless version.

 

5. Web Technologies: Swagger Distribution is in the process of designing a new website using HTML5 (HyperText Markup Language).

 

6. Information Security: There is no current information security standard at Swagger Distribution. You know that one needs to be implemented. Your Company Consult Debrief should address the information technology needs for Swagger Distribution listed above.

 

Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:

 

I. II. III. IV. V. Human?Computer Interaction (HCI) Consult

 

a. Summary ? Summarize the human?computer interactions (HCI) problem the company is experiencing. Be sure to list all aspects of the problem
