The network solution that is chosen should support the conceived information system and allow for scalability. The network infrastructure will support organizational operations; therefore, a pictorial view of workstations, servers, routers, bridges, gateways, and access points should be used. In addition, access paths for Internet access should be depicted. A narrative should be included to explain all the nodes of the network and the rationale for the design.

Motor Cycle Comprehensive Project Plan

Section1: Project Introduction

  1. ABC Automotive Company Overview

ABC Automotive Warehouse Limited is a new startup corporation specializing in the manufacture, sell, and distribution of motor cycles and associated spare parts. This is a new company, starting new business, and out to penetrate an already competitive market. Among its features, ABC will concentrate on e-marketing therefore, the biggest responsibility is to get the best system-hardware and software- to create a competitive niche leading t a competitive advantage in the market. The business is located in a two-story stand alone building along Dennis Pat Street in Chicago.

  1. Type of Business for the Company

The state of Illinois regards-as many other states- the market in Asia and Africa as emerging markets and encourages investors to consider foreign direct investment in these regions. The management at ABC Automotive Warehouse Ltd takes this seriously and expects to venture into the international business two after it opens doors to its customers. The company is in the process of developing its infrastructural market with the aim of accessing potential clients across the globe eventually. ABC Ltd will do this with different varieties of motor cycles both on offer and on sale. The company will focus on two aspects to effectively penetrate the new markets. First, it will establish the best e-marketing structure in terms of hardware and software before availing motor cycles on the market with most affordable prices ever-pocket friendly to be precise. Its place of operation will comprise a two storey stand-alone building in New York.

  1. Required Information System
  2. Database: The database defines the manner in which information pertaining to the organization will be organized. The company should organize its database using the relational database. The database is tabular in nature to allow reorganization and quick access in different ways with an example being an SQL server.
  3. System analysis: It entails examination of the entire company system to ensure that it is running and effective to deliver its objectives. The analysis should be done routinely to minimize existing loopholes for hackers.
  • Security: The security will involve physical security of the two-story building as well as a system security. Physical security will entail restricting access to the building and company facilities with the aid of CCTV cameras. System security will involve the use of passwords to all company systems.
  1. Networking: Networking entails connecting all company system to the internet to enhance communication and online transactions. A secure network is essential for information security of the company.
  2. Computer infrastructure will include both software and hardware required by the company. The software such as computer programs will facilitate the running of the hardware such as computers. Servers, computers, data centers, routers, switches, and hubs are just but a few of the things that make up a computer infrastructure.
  3. Human computer interaction will involve the manner in which computers and employees of the company interact. Only authorized people should access the system with passwords being changed monthly. System programmers and analysts that maintain the system will be in constant interaction with computers during the operation of the company.
  • Web design: The design of the company’s website will entail the use of the most safe and effective with illustrations. The illustrative web design will help the company become appealing to its customers. The design of the website will include images, charts, tables, graphs, and pictures where necessary to illustrate its products and organizational structure among other company aspects.
