Use the systems development process outlined in this chapter and the model of IS components from Chapter 1 as problem-solving frameworks to help you propose IS solutions to simple business problems. Describe and give examples to illustrate how you might use each of the steps of the IS development cycle to develop and implement a business IS.

The question is asking for a description and examples of how the systems development process and the model of IS components can be used to propose IS solutions to simple business problems. It also asks for examples of how each step of the IS development cycle can be used to develop and implement a business IS.

Explain how prototyping can be used as an effective technique to improve the process of systems development for end users and IS specialists.

This question requests an explanation of how prototyping can be used as an effective technique to improve the process of systems development for end users and IS specialists.

Understand the basics of project management and their importance to a successful system development effort.

This question asks for an understanding of the basics of project management and their importance to a successful system development effort.

Identify the activities involved in the implementation of new IS.

The question requires the identification of the activities involved in the implementation of new IS.

Compare and contrast the four basic system conversation strategies.

This question asks for a comparison and contrast of the four basic system conversation strategies.

Describe several evaluation factors that should be considered in evaluating the acquisition of h.

The question asks for a description of several evaluation factors that should be considered in evaluating the acquisition of h.

Match the following IS development cycle steps with their descriptions:

Analysis = Identifying the problem and obtaining the requirements Design = Creating the structure and architecture of the system Implementation = Putting the designed system into action Maintenance = Making changes and improvements to the system after it's in use

Match the following project management activities with their descriptions:

Planning = Setting the goals, defining the scope, and creating a schedule Organizing = Assigning tasks, assembling resources, and establishing procedures Leading = Motivating and directing the project team to achieve the goals Controlling = Monitoring progress, identifying variances, and taking corrective actions

Match the following system conversation strategies with their descriptions:

Direct = Switching from the old system to the new one at an appointed time Parallel = Running the old and new systems simultaneously for a period of time Pilot = Implementing the new system in just one part of the organization Phased = Gradually replacing the old system with the new one in stages

Match the following IS acquisition evaluation factors with their descriptions:

Cost = The financial investment required for the acquisition Compatibility = The ability of the new system to work with existing hardware and software Support = The availability of assistance and maintenance for the acquired system Scalability = The capability of the system to handle increased workloads as the organization grows

Match the following prototyping benefits with their explanations:

Improved User Involvement = Users can provide feedback and suggestions during development Reduced Development Time = Quick creation of prototype to gather user feedback early in the process Improved System Quality = Identification of design flaws and requirements issues early on Reduced Risk of Project Failure = Early identification of potential problems and user acceptance issues

Study Notes

Developing Business/IT Solutions

  • Use the systems development process and the IS components model as problem-solving frameworks to propose IS solutions to simple business problems.
  • The systems development process involves multiple steps to develop and implement a business IS.

Systems Development Cycle

  • The IS development cycle consists of multiple steps to improve the process of systems development for end users and IS specialists.
  • Prototyping can be used as an effective technique to improve the systems development process.

Project Management

  • Project management is critical to a successful system development effort.
  • Understanding the basics of project management is essential for developing and implementing a new IS.

Implementation of New IS

  • The implementation of new IS involves various activities.
  • These activities are crucial to the successful implementation of a new IS.

System Conversion Strategies

  • There are four basic system conversion strategies.
  • The four strategies can be compared and contrasted based on their approaches and outcomes.

Evaluating the Acquisition of Hardware/Software

  • Several evaluation factors should be considered when evaluating the acquisition of hardware/software.
  • These factors are essential to ensuring that the acquired hardware/software meets the business needs and requirements.

Test your understanding of the systems development process outlined in Chapter 12 of "Developing Business/IT Solutions" by James A. O'Brien and George Marakas. This quiz will assess your ability to propose IS solutions to simple business problems using problem-solving frameworks and the model of IS components from Chapter 1.
