After exhaustive research, you came up with the notion of using cloud computing technologies, and you have determined that this technology offers the best alternative for keeping the current customer and projected requirements. In your job as the IT network manager in charge of the computer system of the organization, you have been directed to analyze the situation and come up with a proposed solution for the chief information officer (CIO) and the sales manager. The time to implement is measured in months, not in years.

You also observed, during research on cloud computing, that as enterprises move more of their IT resources to the cloud, protecting against security breaches is a top concern. IT executives often cite worries over security as a reason why they are not taking greater advantage of cloud services.

Assignment Requirements

Points deducted from grade for each writing, spelling, or grammar errors are at your instructor’s discretion according to the Undergraduate Writing Rubric located in Course Resources.
