Program HW1 P2

Planning and system requirements to the attached scenario and specify the following:

1. The pertinent requirements

2. Propose the necessary solution elements (related to the IT disciplines)

3. Develop a high-level plan for implementing the solution

This first section of the Systems Implementation Plan should answer the following questions:

1. What specific and detailed requirements are addressed in the solution, and how?

2. What does Verbania need from an IT perspective to set up the needed infrastructure?

3. What is included in the solution’s hardware and software infrastructure?

Include a high-level network diagram that illustrates the required hardware and software infrastructure on the company’s premise. Explain access from the perspective of employee (internal and external access) and end user (remote access).

Prepare 5–7 pages of content describing Planning and System Requirements.


Assignment 2: Collecting Your Data

1. Choose a religious community and make contact. You might ask any religious friends or acquaintances of yours for suggestions. You may want to call the congregation or religious group, explaining that you are doing a field trip for a course, and ask permission to visit their service or meeting.

2. Attend the religious meeting or service. Dress appropriately and consider bringing a token donation. Be respectful. Under no circumstances may your presence, observations, or possible questions cause harm or discomfort for those you are observing.

3. Always be open and honest with those you are studying about who you are and what you want. If anyone asks why you are there, simply tell them that you are an observer as part of a college course on religion and that attendance at and observance of several services is required.

4. Participate in the service itself only to the degree that you are comfortable doing so.

5. Pay attention to everything you see, hear, touch, smell. Try to exercise “sympathetic understanding” (what Max Weber called “Verstehen“) in relation to those you are observing. Try to get inside their world, to see how it feels and looks and makes sense from their perspective. At the same time (here’s the tricky part), try to maintain enough “distance” so that you don’t miss all of the things you should be observing and recording. Also, as if that’s not enough, pay explicit attention to yourself as an observer, to your reactions to and feelings about your visit.

6. You should take as many “field notes” on your observations as possible, and as close to the time of your observations as possible. Scribble “memory flag” notes, if appropriate, during the meetings, if it’s not distracting or obtrusive. Otherwise, write down everything you can remember about your observations as quickly after the meeting as possible. This may take an hour or so to be thorough. Your notes don’t have to be highly organized. At this stage, you don’t need to be doing a major theoretical analysis; just record your many impressions as you are conscious of them.

7. Type your field notes.  You will be required to include your “field notes” with your report; note: these do not count towards your 5 page requirement.

8.  Pay attention to: Physical Setting and Artifacts, Demographics, Meeting Style, Narratives, Sermon or Homily, Relational Norms, Leadership and Authority, Central Theme, and Coherence and Contradictions

Writing the Reports

All reports should be 4-5 pages long, and must contain these distinct parts:

1. Your report title should tell what group you visited, where, and when. Make sure to include your name.

2. In one paragraph, briefly describe your experience of participant observation. How did you react to the experience, subjectively, and how might that have colored your perceptions and analysis? Were you engaged? In wonder? Bored? Confused? Did you feel at home or out of place? Comfortable or ill at ease? Were there any difficulties? Weird situations? Use this section to make sure you pay attention to your own role in the experience.

3. The main body of your report should describe the religious group and service you observed.  Write-up the detail of the service you observed in one of two ways:

1) in chronological order clearly integrating each of the key themes and questions you were prompted to consider during your observations: meeting style; narratives; sermon/homily; relational norms; leadership and authority; central theme; coherence and contradiction


2) by key theme, addressing the questions identified for each theme in the guidelines, and breaking down the entire service through these themes (the chronology of the service should still be clear with this approach); include subtitles with this approach

4. Choose one topic or issue from the class readings and concisely analyze that issue or problem as you see it at work in the group you studied. [hint: this is analyzing one sociologically-relevant aspect of your observations].

Examples of appropriate issues might be: accommodation or resistance to secular modernity; faith-commitment reinforcement; distinctive gender relations; the functioning of authority; legitimation for inequality; plausibility structures; theodicy; legitimation for social conflict; growth strategies; conversion mechanisms, etc. There are, of course, many others.

Which you choose will depend on the group, your observations, and your interests. I encourage you, however, to focus on things other than formal beliefs–such as interactions, context, moods, rituals, objects, relations, practices, etc. In any case, your analysis must make specific reference to and use of an author or theorist or theory that we have studied in class.

5. Attach your “field notes” from your visit.  These assignments should be submitted as ONE document: essay first, followed by any references, and finally your field notes.

Required report format: reports must be printed in Times Roman or Arial font, 11 point size, 1 inch margins on all sides; APA reference format.

Protecting information in the cloud

Your company is debating transferring all of their information to a Cloud storage provider. The CFO feels this move is a big cash savings plan, one that could save the company a lot of money. The CIO feels the risk is too high and wants you to develop an Awareness presentation and Information Guide handout to outline the Pros and Cons of this storage plan. You will present this presentation at an executive session next week.

Note: The cloud storage for this assignment is not Dropbox, iCloud, etc. Rather, the assignment is about cloud service providers that provide IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS services.

The objectives of this assignment are to:

Describe how to determine the risk associated with the selected cloud service provider

Describe operational security pros and cons of using cloud storage

Describe how security management tasks for the customer and the cloud service provider differ depending on whether IaaS, PaaS, or SaaS is selected.

Create a 4- to 6-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation. Include the following:

Content for each of the objectives

Detailed slide notes including analysis of each concept or term listed in each slide. Each slide must include detailed slide notes supported by one or more supporting references. The references must be cited in the slide notes.

References used to support your presentation, including a minimum of two outside academic references in addition to course textbooks and videos. Your references must be shown in a references slide at the end of your presentation.

Neither the title slide nor the references slide are included in the required slide count.

Review of IT systems

Create a 5-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation which communicates the changes and/or best practices that must be incorporated within the IT development function. This development function is critical, since new systems need to be designed for better security than the legacy systems currently used. Include the following:

Security practices in the intiation, design/development/acquistion, and implementation phases

Videos, audio, photos, diagrams, or graphs as appropriate

Substantial speaker notes to elaborate on the key points of your plan

APA Formatting

Salesperson JAVA Application Part 1

Write a Java application using NetBeans Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that calculates the total annual compensation of a salesperson.

Consider the following factors:

  • A salesperson will earn a fixed salary of $50,000.
  • A salesperson will also receive a commission as a sales incentive. Commission is a percentage of the salesperson’s annual sales. The current commission is 5% of total sales.
  • The total annual compensation is the fixed salary plus the commission earned.

The Java application should meet these technical requirements:

  • The application should have at least one class, in addition to the application’s controlling class (a controlling class is where the main function resides).  This means at least two (2) classes.
  • There should be proper documentation in the source code.
  • The application should ask the user to enter annual sales, and it should display the total annual compensation.

Include a prolog (a block of comments at the top of the class file) stating what each class does and document your code.
Remove all package statements.
