Overview

For the purposes of this assignment, imagine that you are a systems  architect at a medium-sized publishing company with 103 employees. The  company primarily publishes books, both in print and online. It also  produces other kinds of content, such as audiobooks, interactive reading  material, and magazines. Your leadership has decided that it is time to  either upgrade the current OS or adopt a new one (e.g., Windows, Linux,  macOS).

As the systems architect, you have the responsibility to determine  which OS the company should implement for each department. There are  many aspects to consider when making this decision, including what  existing applications are used by employees on a frequent basis, cost,  functionality provided, performance, vendor support, and so on. To  determine which OS should be implemented, you need to complete a site  survey first. Later, the site survey can be used to help you make a  decision as to which operating systems to implement based on what is  currently used in the department. For this activity, you will conduct a  site survey. This is also a step that you will need to take when you  submit Project One in Module Four. The feedback that you receive after  submitting this activity should be implemented as you craft your Project  One submission.

Prompt

Complete a Site Survey: A site survey compares the  three different operating systems that the company is planning to  implement. To complete this task, use the Project One Site Survey  Template linked in the Supporting Materials area. Specifically, you must  address the following rubric criteria:

  • Operating Systems: Acknowledge what OSes are  already used in your site survey. The type of OS already used and how  many employees are using it can influence your decision making.
  • Server: Determine whether the desktops are on a hardware or cloud-based server. 
    • Although not required in this portion of the project, you may want  to think about whether or not the server should be changed. This change  could be recommended in your proposal.
  • Standard Hardware for Operating System Types: Determine the minimum required hardware. This could include desktop and server.
  • Network Connection: Determine whether the network is wired or wireless.
     
    • You will want to think about whether or not the network connection  should be changed. This change could be recommended in your proposal.
  • Applications: Identify what software applications  need to be supported by the OS. Your survey of what applications desktop  users use most frequently will influence your decision making, as some  applications are not supported by certain OSes.
