Project 2: Desktop Migration Proposal
This week, submit the second project, the Desktop Migration Proposal. Using the requirements analysis your manager provided and the Internet research you conducted, submit your recommendation to the assignment folder. As you are writing your recommendation, ensure your analysis and recommendations align with your manager’s priorities and concerns.
You should carefully document any assumptions made (e.g., how you analyzed the requirement for upgrading monitors, peripherals devices, etc.).
Refer to the HFA Desktop Migration: Corporate PC Refresh Documentation for the company’s needs (requirements). Your justification should clearly indicate how you bridge the gap between the existing desktop specifications and the new machines you recommend.
For this assignment, you are asked by your manager to research the replacement of 50 aging desktop machines with new laptops. Review the business needs from your manager carefully so that you fully appreciate the requirements you must address in selecting the new laptops.
The following evaluation criteria aligned to the competencies will be used to grade your assignment:
1.1.3: Present ideas in a clear, logical order appropriate to the task.
1.2.3: Explain specialized terms or concepts to facilitate audience comprehension.
1.4.3: Write concise and logical sentences in standard academic English that clarify relationships among concepts and ideas.
