System Analysis
This term has many different meanings. In the sense adopted for the Handbook, systems
analysis is an explicit formal inquiry carried out to help someone (referred to as the decision
maker) identify a better course of action and make a better decision than he might otherwise
have made. The characteristic attributes of a problem situation where systems analysis is
called upon are complexity of the issue and uncertainty of the outcome of any course of
action that might reasonably be taken. Systems analysis usually has some combination of the
following: identification and re-identification) of objectives, constraints, and alternative
courses of action; examination of the probable consequences of the alternatives in terms of
costs, benefits, and risks; presentation of the results in a comparative framework so that the
decision maker can make an informed choice from among the alternatives. The typical use
of systems analysis is to guide decisions on issues such as national or corporate plans and
programs, resource use and protection policies, research and development in technology,
regional and urban development, educational systems, and other social services. Clearly, the
nature of these problems requires an interdisciplinary approach.


System Design
System Design involves the analysis, design, and configuration of the necessary hardware
and software components to support your solution's architecture. The five major components
of System Design include: the Information Model, Community Model, Security/Permission
Model, System Integration, Workflow, and Technical Architecture.

Benefits
A System Design engagement typically provides the following benefits:
1)Improved system performance; individually tailored configuration advice demonstrates
where improvement is necessary, and how to improve the system to regain lost
performance.
2) Customers gain a detailed understanding of how their users use their system. This Usage
Profile can be leveraged to develop future architecture changes.
3) Potential to learn of future concerns, allowing customers to take proactive measures to
avoid problems.
4) A baseline performance level is established against which benefits can be compared and
changes to the system predicted or foreseen.

The above named course content are very involving in that from this I would be able to use
the skilled learnt beyond this course coz I will be able to use the analysis even in other fields
this will be useful.

Benefits
-Using educational technology for drill and practice of basic skills can be highly effective
according to a large body of data and a long history of use (Kulik, 1994). Students usually
learn more, and learn more rapidly, in courses that use computer assisted instruction

-Computers can also be more cost-effective than additional tutoring, reduced class size, or
increased instruction time to attain equivalent educational gains.

-Teachers and administrators use computer and information technologies to improve their
roles in the educational process.Examples:

a) Using computer tools to streamline record keeping and administrative tasks, thereby
helping to free up time for instruction or professional development
b) Decreasing isolation by using e-mail and the Internet to communicate with colleagues,
parents, and the outside world, and
c) Increasing professional development activities by taking distance education courses,
accessing educational research, and accessing classroom materials such as lesson plans.
-It also gives you a deeper understanding of IT as a subject and a professional course.

Benefits
Commercial Benefits of the Internet

The Internet is highly cost-effective business tool, and very flexible in its application i.e.

Traders with better access to greater amounts of more accurate market information
have better growth potential. With the Internet, you can for instance obtain access
up-to-date quality sales opportunities not readily available elsewhere. And all
without leaving your office, at the punch of a few buttons! Fast changing industries
such as the fashion business can gain immensely, by finding out about the latest
trends, what the market is buying and being able to respond to it before their
competitors.

Companies working on joint projects benefit too. Imagine a magazine publisher with
journalists in different towns. At present, each journalist types in the text, faxes or
posts it to the office where it is passed to the sub-editor who amends it before it is
retyped and made up into pages. With the Internet, each journalist types the story,
mails it electronically by E-Mail to the sub-editor who amends it on screen and
passes the computer file to be automatically formatted and made up into pages. No
retyping or associated errors. No faxes being lost on peoples' desks. Nothing lost in
the post or taking three days to get anywhere. Automatically check it for spelling and
grammar if you want to. And our Internet will even allow you to publish in
electronic form too! Imagine a "newspaper" distributed electronically direct to the
computer on your desk! And it can be charged for as well....

Organisations on several sites benefit immensely. No having to fax and retype, or
putting floppy disks in the post where they get lost, damaged or arrive late. Push a
few buttons and the data can be on your colleague's machine in a matter of minutes!
They can just comment on it and send it on to someone else. All in computer form,
only printing out where necessary.

Those mailing out to many organisations or branches can gain financially. With post,
or even fax, you pay for each separate mailing or call. With electronic mail, the cost
of sending to 50 addresses is little more than of sending to 5!

Companies can also use the technology to form sectorial consortiums with greater
commercial power. Imagine someone trying to organise hotel accommodation for a
large conference. At present, they have to telephone, fax or mail each hotel for room
availability, facilities available etc. But what if the hotels get together and make this
information available electronically on the Internet. Then all the conference
organiser has to do is make one call to the system (without leaving his/her desk!)
Instantly they can see how many people each hotel can take on the days in question,
who will need to stay at which place to have the required facilities and so on. The
latest technology will even allow them to book it the same way! Using the Internet,
such a sectorial consortium could outbid individual hotels and those not using the
system and gain trade in bulk.

 


As another example, think about the design industries. With the launch of a new
product, not only has the product itself got to be designed, but also the sales
literatures, the packaging, the press releases, the display stands etc. At present, this is
all dine by time-consuming face-to-face meetings or mail. With the Internet, ideas,
plans and designs, can be exchanged easily and instantly in computer form. No need
to leave your desk - simply send it by electronic mail for you colleague to comment
on, amend or use.
Even small companies can benefit. You want a sales leaflet, but you don't have
desktop publishing equipment or anyone who knows how to use it, for example.
Type the information in your word-processor, send it by the Internet's electronic mail
to someone who has the equipment and skills, and they send you the finished desktop
publishing file by return which you print out as required. No need to run around
between artists, typesetters and printers - stay in your office and get on with some
work!

What about engineering company that gets a request for machinery, but for which
they can't build on their own. Maybe they don't have the supplies, the parts, the
manufacturing equipment or workers with the necessary skills. But if they have
access to the Internet, they can find companies which can, enabling them to provide
the machinery as a joint venture, and gaining business that they would otherwise
have lost!

Travelling staff such as sales representatives can gain valuable trading advantages
for their company by using the Internet. Imagine your sales staff making a visit to a
potential client, who asks him for product information that he/she doesn't have. The
company representative without access to the Internet has to post or fax it on return
to base. The sales person who does have access to the Internet simply connects his
portable computer to a telephone line and the whole company catalogue can be
obtained! Prices, stocks, delivery times, ordering systems can all be available at the
touch of a few buttons at the customer's premises whilst the sales lead is still hot.

Senior business people too can use it to keep in touch with their company whilst
they're away on business. Even if you're abroad at a conference, you can still
exchange letters, contracts, and correspondence of all sorts. Even progress reports,
schedule updates, output figures, the lot!

What about those companies seeking new business abroad? You've met an importer
from Spain who wants more information, but all your sales information is in English.
With the Internet, you send your product information electronically to a company in
Spain which translates it, and sends it back to you by electronic mail as a desktop
published document which you simply print out and hand to the importer! A major
sale that you would have lost without the Internet.

Software companies can use the Internet to support users who have problems, use it
to distribute upgrades and new releases, or undertake market research.

Benefits

Easy to Deploy, Manage, and Use
With its familiar Windows interface, Windows Server 2003 is easy to use. New
streamlined wizards simplify the setup of specific server roles and routine server
management tasks so that even servers without a dedicated administrator are easy to
manage. In addition, administrators have several new and improved features
designed to make it easier to deploy Active Directory. Large Active Directory
replicas can be deployed from backup media, and upgrading from earlier server
operating systems such as Microsoft Windows NT® is easier with the Active
Directory Migration Tool (ADMT), which copies passwords and is fully scriptable.
Maintaining Active Directory is easier with new features, such as the ability to
rename domains and redefine schema, giving administrators the flexibility to handle
organizational changes that may occur. In addition, cross-forest trusts let
administrators connect Active Directory forests, providing autonomy without
sacrificing integration. Lastly, improved deployment tools, such as Remote
Installation Services, help administrators quickly create system images and deploy
servers.
Secure Connected Infrastructure
Efficient and secure networked computing is more important than ever for a business
to remain competitive. Windows Server 2003 lets organizations take advantage of
existing IT investments, and extend those advantages to partners, customers, and
suppliers by deploying key features like cross-forest trusts in the Microsoft Active
Directory® service as well as Microsoft .NET Passport integration. Identity
management in Active Directory spans the entire network, helping ensure security
throughout the enterprise. It's easy to encrypt sensitive data, and software restriction
policies can be used to prevent damage caused by viruses and other malicious code.
Windows Server 2003 is the best choice for deploying a public key infrastructure
(PKI), and its autoenrollment and autorenewal features make it easy to deploy smart
cards and certificates across the enterprise.
Enterprise-Class Reliability, Availability, Scalability, and Performance
Reliability is enhanced through a range of new and improved features including
memory mirroring, Hot Add Memory, and health detection in Internet Information
Services (IIS) 6.0. For higher availability, the Microsoft Cluster service now
supports up to eight-node clusters and geographically separated nodes. Better
scalability is provided with the ability to scale from a single-processor to 64-way
Itanium 2 systems. Overall, Windows Server 2003 is faster with up to 140 percent
better file-system performance as well as significantly faster performance for Active
Directory, XML Web services, Terminal Services, and networking.
Lower TCO Through Consolidation and the Latest Technology
Windows Server 2003 provides many technical advances that help organizations
lower total cost of ownership (TCO). The Windows Resource Manager, for example,
lets administrators set resource usage (for processors and memory) on server
applications and manage them though Group Policy settings. Network-attached
storage helps consolidate file services. Other improvements include support for Non-

 

Uniform Memory Access (NUMA), Intel Hyper-Threading technology, and multi-
path input/output (I/O), all of which help "scale up" servers.

Create Dynamic Intranet and Internet Web Sites
IIS 6.0, the Web server included in Windows Server 2003, provides enhanced
security and a dependable architecture that offers application isolation and greatly
improved performance. The result: higher overall reliability and uptime. And
Microsoft Windows Media® services makes it easy to build streaming media
solutions with dynamic content programming as well as faster and more reliable
performance.

Fast Development with Integrated Application Server
The Microsoft .NET Framework is deeply integrated into the Windows Server 2003
operating system. Microsoft ASP.NET enables high-performance Web applications.
With .NET-connected technology, developers are freed from having to write tedious
"plumbing" code and can work efficiently with the programming languages and tools
they already know. Windows Server 2003 provides many features that boost
developer productivity and the value of applications. Existing applications can be
easily repackaged as XML Web services. UNIX applications can be easily integrated
or migrated. And developers can quickly build mobile-aware Web applications and
services through ASP.NET mobile Web Forms controls and other tools.

Work Smarter By Turning Your File Server Into a Powerful Collaboration Server
Windows SharePoint Services is a platform for creating large numbers of smart Web
communities focused on information sharing and team productivity. It can scale to
thousands of sites within an organization. It fully supports load-balanced Web farm
and clustered database deployments. Site and server managers can enforce storage
quotas using a sites per-server and users per-site criterion. Site usage can be
monitored to detect and retire inactive sites. Security is granular, yet easily managed.
Windows Rights Management Services (RMS) is a security feature of Windows that
works with applications to help safeguard confidential and sensitive enterprise
information--no matter where it goes.

Automate Operations with Script-based and Policy-based Management Tools
Expected to be available as an add-in component, the new Group Policy
Management Console (GPMC) allows administrators to better deploy and manage
policies that automate key configuration areas such as users' desktops, settings,
security, and roaming profiles. A new set of command-line tools lets administrators
script and automate management functions, allowing most management tasks to be
completed from the command line if desired. Support for Microsoft Software Update
Services (SUS) helps administrators automate the latest system updates.

Increase Document Protection and Availability via Intelligent File Storage
With the new shadow copy restore feature, users can retrieve previous versions of
files instantly, without requiring costly assistance from a support professional.

 

Enhancements to the Distributed File System (DFS) and File Replication service
(FRS) provide users with a consistent way to access their files wherever they are.

Easy to Find, Share, and Reuse XML Web Services
Windows Server 2003 includes Enterprise UDDI Services, a dynamic and flexible
infrastructure for XML Web services. This standards-based solution enables
companies to run their own UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery and
Integration) directory for intranet or extranet use, making it easy to discover Web
services and other programmatic resources. Developers can easily and quickly find
and reuse the Web services available within the organization. IT administrators can
catalog and manage the programmable resources in their network. Enterprise UDDI
Services also helps companies build and deploy smarter, more reliable applications.
