Milestone 2 – business systems analysis/design

Course Title is Business Systems Analysis/Design, not Information Systems

Milestone 1


For Milestone Two, you will be assessing the database needs and options for Sharpe Style. After looking at how the SDLC applies to your final project, a good next step is looking at the data. Think small and see where your requirements take you. Remember that Mary is worried about how she will keep track of her inventory when she migrates into online sales. You will be using the Milestone Two section of the template to complete this assignment. (Attached) Refer to the Sharpe Style scenario for details on the current state of the company and the business owner’s goals. 

Based on what you have learned this week, assess the type of database technology the company will need to support new online services. (Read Chap 4 and 9)

Once you have established the company’s needs, you should research the available options. Present a minimum of two. Keep in mind that Mary Sharpe is looking for an inexpensive and easy-to-implement solution. What are the pros and cons of each option? 

For this assignment, find a real-world example of what has or has not worked for another company. Talk about how this example informs the options you will present to Mary Sharpe. Make sure you site your source(s) appropriately. 

Remember that you are an intern and are not expected to make suggestions that encompass a deep level of technical detail. You are expected to provide a high-level view of what would be required to help your business owner make an informed decision regarding database needs for online services. 

Use the Milestone Two section of the template and submit the template.
