What are the major functions that the desired small business budgeting and financial application should support (e.g. budgeting, online banking, account management, security, payroll, and tax software integration as just some potential functions)? These will serve as the ‘business requirements’ that will need to be supported by a budgeting and financial application. A minimum of 15 to 20 requirements should be identified. The requirements should be functional requirements only. Security will be identified in a later unit.
Explain, in detail, the requirements for each of the functions identified. You are encouraged to provide enough detail that will allow you to describe how the function actually works in the upcoming weeks.
Develop a table that will serve as a checklist for evaluation of each of the selected applications identified in Unit 2. Your table should have four columns. The first column represents the function; the next three columns will represent selected applications.
Prepare a preliminary detailed plan regarding how you will carry out each of the systems development phases for this project. Note that selection of the application will not occur until the design phase and development will focus on the setup of the application. Your textbook provides an example project plan. You are only required to identify the steps.
On a separate document do the following:
Conduct a search for potential financial and budgeting applications for which the functionality may meet the needs of a small business. Your search should include applications that will run on different devices (Windows, Mac, mobile), although not necessarily all three for each application. Identify the applications, briefly describe their functionality, identify their price, and identify what types of devices upon which each will operate. A minimum of 10 applications should be identified, though it is encouraged that more be identified. Your description of functionality should identify key features for each application and should include a minimum of five features identified.
For this assignment, it will be assumed that the device(s) you own equals those used by the small business. The remaining portion of the assignment will reference the device as that owned by the small business. Identify the devices (desktop/laptop/notebook, tablet, or smartphone) that are owned by the company (ones you own). Be sure to identify the brand, device type, and operating system.
Which of the applications are feasible, given the constraint of the types of devices that are currently owned by the company? Is there any discernable loss in functionality with the exclusion of the applications that cannot operate with these devices? Please explain.
Which of the applications are feasible, given cost or price constraints? Is there any discernable loss in functionality with the exclusion of the applications that exceed the cost or price constraints? Please explain.
Which of the applications are feasible, given cost or price, and device constraints? Is there any discernable loss in functionality with the exclusion of the applications that exceed the cost or price, and device constraints? Please explain.
Based on the findings in 2, 3, and 4 above, identify at least three applications that will be the subject of the next steps in this assignment and project. If three are not identified in #4, select an additional application(s) that will work with the device(s) owned by the company.
Identify the key stakeholders (e.g. executives, owners, accountant, bank, etc.) that should serve as members of the project team. Please explain the rationale for your selection.
The instructions are attached.
or the first assignment I do. For the second assignment you just have to answer all the questions it can be under 750 for Unit 2.No I meant for the first assignment you do need to do it in 750 words. The second assignment it does not have to be 750 but close to it. If you answer all of the questions then it most definitely would be up there in that 700-word area. No plagiarism, please
