Generate one diagram that you would use in an executive meeting to show your IT acquisition steps using the Systems Development Lifecycle (SDLC). Include steps such as the acquisition, implementation, and support of the technology infrastructure solution that you chose. Paste this diagram in a PowerPoint slide and post the slide as an attachment to your Discussion thread. You need not include speaker notes as part of this slide. The aim of this diagram is to summarize the activities that you conducted in each of your SDLC steps in one clear visual representation. A stakeholder should be able to look at your diagram and see a summary of your SDLC steps from acquiring the technology through its anticipated support stage. Activities should be succinctly summarized in the diagram, highlighting the most important activities for the executive audience.
In your Discussion thread briefly highlight 3–5 major assumptions that you made in acquiring this infrastructure solution. The Discussion is the opportunity to expand on the process and steps that you used in developing your visual Systems Lifecycle Diagram. Describe the type of non-health care organization are you are referencing in your acquisition strategy. Why is this non-health care example relevant in the acquisition of this technology? How can learning from this industry be applied to health care? Explain your assumptions regarding scope, cost, and use of this technology.
