Building a System
Selecting Software Why is it important to use systems analysis and design methodologies when building a system? Why not just build the system in whatever way seems to be “quick and easy”? What value is provided by using an “engineering” approach? Also, Give a specific example of an organization (not one listed in the book) that does a good job of this and why. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.
Review the criteria for selecting off-the-shelf software presented in this chapter. Use your experience and imagination and describe other criteria that are, or might be used to select off-the-shelf software in the real world. For each new criterion, explain how its use might be functional (i.e., it is useful to use this criterion…), dysfunctional, or both. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.
Take a tour of FastTrack Schedule 9's top features. See how you can use the leading easy-to-use project management software for planning, tracking, and visualizing project goals on a Mac or PC.
