Task



Further Background

Refer to background information provided in Assessments 1 and 2 regarding the Headspace project.


The project is considering cloud based solutions which should be investigated. Consider various aspects of cloud based solutions such as; data security, which includes data ownership (by Headspace, the young person, medical professionals, the Emergency Department etc). As well as other relevant aspects of cloud solutions.



Complete the Following

Please refer to the marking guide when preparing your response to see what criteria and standards will be used to assess your work and your progress.


Non-Functional Requirements



  • This sets out the critical system qualities, system interfaces, user interface requirements, and system constraints.

  • Use to ‘FURPS+’ acronym as reference, and ensure you at cover the non-functional aspects of the acronym, Usability, Reliability, Performance and Security.


Review of cloud based.


A review of strengths and weaknesses of cloud based solutions. Taking into consideration the environment which the solution would be deployed.


SDLC Approach


Write brief description of the Pros and Cons to approaching the project using the ‘Predictive’ SDLC, then the Pros and Cons to approach the project as ‘Adaptive’ SDLC. Then recommend either Predictive or Adaptive to the SDLC for the project and briefly describe why.



Rationale


This assessment aligns with learning outcomes


o be able to develop system requirements models;
o be able to demonstrate the ability to use the tools and techniques of object oriented and structured systems modelling.

Evidence of having researched/read more widely beyond the core materials.



Specifies the qualities/ non-behavioural requirements that can be used to judge the operation of the system. Demonstrates breadth and depth of understanding and has insights and awareness of deeper more subtle aspects of the topic. Evidence of having read beyond the core materials.



Specifies the main qualities/ non-behavioural requirements that can be used to judge the operation of the system. Demonstrates thorough understanding of material presented in core texts and readings.

FURPS+
The FURPS model is defined as:
Functionality- Feature set, Capabilities, Generality, Reusability, Security
Usability- Human factors, Aesthetics, Consistency, Documentation
Reliability- Frequency/severity of failure, Recoverability, Predictability, Accuracy, Mean time to f
ailure
Performance- Speed, Efficiency, Resource consumption, Throughput, Response time
Supportability-Testability, Extensibility, Adaptability, Maintainability, Compatibility, Configurability, Serviceability, Installability, Localizability, Portability
The software industry nowadays are shifting to the FURPS+ model. The '+' of the FURPS+ model includes:
Design requirement: For example any requirements such as Database, web servers etc. are considered under design requirements
Implementation requirement: For example: what coding standards to follow, which languages to use for implementation, if there are any limits on resource etc.
Interface requirement: This covers any requirement imposed externally which the system must interact
Physical requirement: Undertakes all the hardware on which the system will be deployed
Cloud computing
Advantages of Cloud Computing
Cost Savings
When it comes to cloud computing, one of the biggest benefit is the IT cost savings. Independent of the type of size of businesses, both capital and operational, as low as possible. Since there is no in-house server storage or requirements of the applications, the capital cost with cloud computing is extremely low. The lack of infrastructure lsso removes the related operational costs in the form of power, air conditioning and administration costs. One can pay for what is used and disengage whenever they want to, there is no invested IT capital to wo
y about. The biggest and the most common misconception about using cloud computing is that only big businesses can afford them even these services are extremely affordable for smaller businesses.
Reliability
The cloud computing is more reliable than in-house IT infrastructure with managed service platform. Most of the services are provided 24/7, 365 days with 99.99% availability. Any organization can benefit from a massive pool of redundant IT resources, as well as quick failover mechanism – that is in the case any server fails as one can easily transmit the application and services to any of the available servers.
Manageability
The cloud computing makes the management and maintenance of IT very simple and also it is easy to access to enhanced technology through the service providers. There is no longer need to update and maintain the IT infrastructures since these are now maintained by the service providers.
Strategic Edge
Considering that the time required to acquire the ever increasing computing resources is virtually nil, gives a competitive edge over competitors. Without...
