Case Study: Problem 5
The management of U.S. Sports Fanatics has found that the updating and upgrading of the information technology (IT) infrastructure has been planned out very well by the IT company involved in the upgrade. However, there is a delay in the implementation. Meeting time schedules requires a lot of work and dedication. Now, the online governance evaluation of the past week is generally critical because it leads to the final task of testing and application. You are now in the final week. As the IT consultant, you are required to provide leadership and dedication from experience.
Part 1: Final Deliverable for Key Assignment
Week 5: Implementation of the IT Infrastructure Manual
In the last few weeks, you have prepared the foundation for the Enterprise System Architecture Design document. The final step is to include the writing of the installation manual and the actual testing and upgrading of the IT infrastructure. You have to train the staff and show the difference between the old and new structure. This requires time and effort. Also, your work has to be original and not from previous work in another installation. The implementation has to be unique and approved by your instructor feedback. Your final product is an installation and definition document.
The project deliverables are as follows:
- Update the Enterprise System Architecture Design document title page with the new date.
- Update the previously completed sections based on the instructor’s feedback.
- ESA Governance Improvements

Please refer to the Worked Example that follows for an example of this assignment based on the Problem-Based Learning Scenario. The worked example is not intended to be a complete example of the assignment, but it will illustrate the basic concepts that are required for completion of the assignment, and it can be used as a general guideline for your own project. Your assignment submission should be more detailed and specific and should reflect your own approach to the assignment rather than just following the same outline provided in the worked example.
Note that the worked example includes material from previous worked examples. The new material will be found under the Week 5 sections of the Table of Contents.
The worked example is provided here to help with this assignment.
Part 2: Argumentation
Envision that you now have to present your solution to your client. You need to make a formal presentation to a group of stakeholders, and you need to be prepared to answer their questions. As a final step in the project, you will create a PowerPoint presentation of 8 slides (excluding Title and Reference slides) in which you provide the following:
- In the Notes pages of each slide and based on the context of the information on that slide, provide a narrative of 4 paragraphs of your rationale for the IT infrastructure implementation and improvements that you are recommending.
- On each slide, identify the evidence that you have to support the arguments.
- All sources that are used to support your argument and solution should be cited both in-text (on the slide or in the Notes section) and on a References slide in APA format.
- Name the document “yourname_IT663_IP5.pptx.”
Please submit your assignment.
