1.

The owners of a small company hired Alex to design their computer network. They are purchasing ten computers for their initial employees, and they require that the shared customer database be accessible by all employees. The company does not require centralized security. The owners ask Alex to propose a solution that will not require centralized security but will meet their immediate needs. Ideally, his solution should also allow them to double their staff during the next two years and should keep costs down.

  Alex proposes that the company install Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional on the ten computers and set up a workgroup to share the customer database, installed on one of the eight computers, among all employees.

  Does Alex's proposal achieve the required result of providing all employees access to the shared customer database without the need for centralized security? Does it achieve the first ideal outcome of accommodating a doubling of staff over the next two years? Does it achieve the second ideal outcome of keeping costs down?

A)

It achieves the required result and both ideal outcomes.

B)

It achieves the required result but only one of the ideal outcomes.

C)

It achieves only the required result.

D)

It achieves neither the required result nor the ideal outcomes.

Abraham's company, Blue Yonder Airlines, is building a new network running Microsoft Windows 2000. Abraham has been asked to plan the installation of the new network running Windows 2000. Blue Yonder Airlines currently has three regions: the Rocky Mountain region, the Central region, and the Southeastern region. The outdated hardware, the network operating system, and all applications currently in use at Blue Yonder Airlines are being discarded. The current users of the network include all managers and their secretaries, all reservation clerks, and all baggage handlers. The warehouse and maintenance supervisors will also be using the new system to track parts, record the work done on each airplane, and maintain a log of the maintenance and repair done on each airplane. The required task for Abraham is to ensure that each of the three regional managers will approve the plan. The first ideal goal of the plan is to ensure that the new network meets the needs of each department that will be in the network. The second ideal goal of the plan is to minimize the company's day-to-day operation during the transition.

 To prepare for the installation, Abraham proposes creating an Active Directory services infrastructure design. Abraham wants to assemble a design team consisting of the network administrators from each of the three regions, the regional managers or a manager suggested by the regional manager of each region, a reservation clerk from each region, a secretary from each region, and a baggage handler from each region. He then proposes that the design team analyze the products and customers, the business structure, the business processes, any factors that influence company strategies, and the information technology (IT) management organization and create a business environment analysis document. Finally, because the Rocky Mountain region has the lowest volume of customers, it should be the first region converted to Windows 2000 and serve as the test base for the installation of Windows 2000. Does Abraham's proposal satisfy the required result and the two ideal outcomes?

A)

It satisfies the required result and both ideal outcomes.

B)

It satisfies the required result but only one of the ideal outcomes.

C)

It satisfies only the required result.

D)

It satisfies neither the required result nor the ideal outcomes.

Miriam's company, Wingtip Toys, is upgrading its network to Microsoft Windows 2000. Miriam has been asked to plan the upgrade from Windows 3.51 to Windows 2000. At Wingtip Toys, the users of the network can be divided into four groups: management and its administrative assistants, sales and marketing, manufacturing and the warehouse supervisors, and support staff. The required task for Miriam is to devise a plan that will be approved by the vice president for sales and marketing, the vice president for manufacturing and inventory management, and the vice president for support. The first ideal goal of her plan is to ensure that all hardware is supported. The second ideal goal is to ensure that all software is supported.

 To prepare for the installation, Miriam proposes creating an Active Directory services infrastructure design. She wants to assemble a design team consisting of the current network and system administrators, the three vice presidents or a representative each one suggests, and someone from each of the following departments: sales, marketing, manufacturing, warehouse, and support. She proposes that the design team analyze the products and customers, the business structure, the business processes, any factors that influence company strategies, and the information technology (IT) management organization and create a business environment analysis document. Miriam suggests a thorough analysis of the current technical environment. This analysis should include the following: the current network architecture, the current hardware and software, the Domain Name System (DNS) environment, and the Microsoft Windows NT domain architecture. Finally she suggests the creation of a small test bed to try out the upgrade before testing it on any production systems. Does Miriam's proposal satisfy the required result and the two ideal outcomes?

A)

It satisfies the required result and both ideal outcomes.

B)

It satisfies the required result but only one of the ideal outcomes.

C)

It satisfies only the required result.

D)

It satisfies neither the required result nor the ideal outcomes.
