Software/Hardware It is a predictable suite of hardware and software that will be required to successfully run the information system.  Web­based Mapping One of the major predictable component of IS will be a web based application, or some sort  of connectivity   that  makes  this  information  system  available  over  the  web. Connectivity with the server is required. Standards/Procedures Promoting standards will ensure reliability, consistency and quality of the information system. Promoting procedures will also ensure a consistent approach. Information System’s data maintenance and application development will reduce overall costs in the long run. Types of standards and procedures generally comprise of software standards, metadata standards,   application   development   environment   standards   and   data development/maintenance standards. Application Development Capability It will not be possible to fulfill all IS needs through “commercial off­the­shelf“(COTS) applications;   hence,   it   will   be   required   to   develop   an   application   development environment to tackle additional needs as new systems are developed and requirements are updated.  2. Project Work Plans 2.1 Work Breakdown Structure The work breakdown structure identifies the project’s tasks to provide a framework for organizing and managing the work of the project.

Tools based on CMOS technology should be used, so that the data can be analyzed at a faster rate. These tools are very compact in size. The system can be integrated with cloud computing techniques. In this technique the data is stored at a remote server which is managed by the third party service providers. So there is no need to manage the data. It is the responsibility of the service providers. So it helps in saving the cost. The charges are “Pay per use”. So there is no need to pay for the complete service. 4. Database and Data Warehousing In order to have a successful data warehouse design the IT management must closely follow the development and implementation of every step along the way. The need for a good data warehousing design is critical in the supporting the storage of enormous amounts of data. The records of a database are specific data and references of every individual transaction of any passing of data in the database system as a whole. This data needs to be readably accessible at any time to be analyzed or used. In order to meet the needs of the organization they data warehouse must be organized in a way that allows rapid access to data for analysis and reporting. Entity­Relationship (E­R): See Appendix A Data Flow Diagram (DFD): See Appendix B 5.  Infrastructure and Security Classification of Data Any company’s user having authoritative access to data of the company may, modify  data’s classification. The user may be in a position to change classification of data if there are sufficient and justifiable reasons of doing so. Resources doing so will be held strictly  responsible for their changes. When a new data is created, it should be classified as  “Company Only” data till it user reclassifies it as per one’s modifications. Users are held  strictly for any change in classification they do. Classifications for existing company’ data are given below:  Company’s business information (memos, financial documents, planning  documents etc) should be classified as "Company Only";  Company’s customer data (contact details, contracts, billing information etc)  should be classified as "Company Only";  Network management data (IP addresses, passwords, configuration files, etc.)  should be classified as "Confidential";  Human resources information (employment contracts, salary information, etc.)  should be classified "Confidential";  Published information (pamphlets, performance reports, marketing material, etc.)  should be classified "Shared";  E­mail between Company’s employees should be classified "Company Only";  and,  E­mail between Company’s employees and non­Company employees should be  regarded as "Unclassified". Classifications: Roles and Responsibilities 1. Responsibility of the user to: o Know one’s own clearance level and to understand what are the rights  and limitations associated with that clearance o Ensure all the data one’s going to work on is correctly classified; o Ensure one is familiar with the restrictions associated with the data  one’s working on and o Ensure all the data one works with is protected properly. 2. Responsibility of all system owners and system administrators to: o Determine the security level for all users. o Proper verification of the equipment user is going to work with. o Installation of the equipment. 3. Responsibility of each divisional manager is: o Getting approval on clearance for employees. o Clarifying the classification of data on systems. o Clarifying the classification of equipment. o Understanding and implementing the policy. 4. Responsibility of the Security Officer to: o approving all classifications o Maintaining a list of all classifications o Approving the final layout of the company’s network. o controlling and managing all trusted points Compliance 1. Any unauthorized user accessing data, device, equipment or a location with  insufficient privileges can face disciplinary action.  2. Any user who is allowed to access a system that he/she controls on behalf of  someone else with insufficient clearance can face disciplinary action. 3. Any person who is trying to connect to an equipment for which one is not  classified to access the network with an inappropriate part of the network can  face disciplinary action, 4. Any person who is transmitting data over the network without specific  privileges can face disciplinary action. IDAM can be implemented in the organization. IDAM stands for Identity and Access  Management. This is implemented mainly for increasing the security of the organization  and for the administration purpose. The routine work admin jobs can be easily managed  with this technology. Its main benefits are as discussed below: 1. Unique user­ids are provided to the employees of the company. It becomes easy  to manage the user identities across the organization. 2. The employees get the access to the resources based on their role in the  organization. This is an automated process, so there are no chances of any kind of  biasing or interference. 3. Common password is set for all the resources. So there is no need to remember  multiple passwords for different resources. 4. All the activities of the employees are logged into the log files. So the security is  increased. Things can be tracked when required. Appendix A – . B –  References: 1.
