Explain how the benefits of virtualization would impact the city of Seabreeze.
There are many benefits to migration of a datacenter to a virtual environment. The most understated benefit is true power savings. The reduction of the overall hardware footprint literally means the organization doesn’t have as many servers or desktops to power on a daily basis. These saving which have to be measured over time will contribute to a sizeable decrease in power consumption. As a result of a reduced footprint, less space will be required to house required hardware since multiple servers can be housed on a single hardware host. After virtualization the amount of time to provision a new server is reduced from sometimes weeks to minutes. There is no new hardware to purchase. Only an operating systems license is required if the chosen OS is not free. Server uptime is also increased because of High Availability and Disaster recovery features that are built-in to the product.
Explain how to offset potential negative implications of the adoption of virtualization for the city of Seabreeze.
The biggest concern for most pre-virtualization users is fear. The fear of cost and application compatibility were some of the largest obstacles for early adopters. Over the years this has changed tremendously. One of the biggest opposing companies to virtualization was Oracle. They refused to support or adopt any form of virtualization for their products. A company the size of Oracle steered away from the virtualization path for years because of fear of compatibility, stability, and ability to run their prize winning database solution. Over the years customer demand required they look at it potential. Years later this is not the case. At Collaborate 14 – IOUG forum when asked how many of the Oracle people were actually virtualizing and using the vSphere, 50 percent to 75 percent raised their…...

Risks identified for Xemba Translations Telecommuters project Risk 1 Time Time is a risk for this project on several levels. 173 employees this will be affected as well as their customers. The company has agreed that this is a good move, however, if the process of setting up the equipment, managing the security and providing training goes on too long, then it will start to negatively affect the company over-all. Currently there is concern if the technology will be delivered due to an unforeseen fire, this set back will be costly in time and work. Also, a second part of time being a risk is managing faulty or dying equipment. Home offices will take longer to assess and fix in the long run. IT staff will either have travel to employee’s homes, or employees will be held up having to come into the home office for repairs. The impact is serious due to the fact it would reduce the amount of work completed, uses valuable resources that are required on-site, or lead to cost of hiring a separate support staff for the telecommuters. Initial action is to move quickly in the areas that can be moved on quickly. Also, there are several team members who are done their parts, and several who are......

The inn is a reconstruction of a historic mansion and embodies the traditional charm and hospitality of a bygone era. The company operates as an independent partner with TITP and benefits from tourism, weddings and other special events held at the park. While there are several bed & breakfasts and boutique inns within Salt Lake City, none can boast a finer location than the Canard House. The inn provides a unique historical setting in a prime location within close proximity to events, dining and transportation. It has unobstructed views of both the Salt Lake Valley and Wasatch mountain range, and is situated in a 450 acre preserve surrounded by picturesque and historic structures. Currently, all advertising has been done by the in-house marketing department. The department is overwhelmed by having to create campaigns for five separate entities within the umbrella of the “This is the Place Heritage Foundation”. Consequently effective online marketing and sales for the Canard House have been sluggish at best. To help bolster growth and sales,......

There are a few diagrams and illustrations that are extremely helpful in explaining the technology and how it is used to access the internet. The article will be most useful for NHS to learn the technical details of DSL connections and how it will enable them to interconnect the remote offices.

...Strategic Recommendations for Anne Ewers Regarding the Merger of the Utah Symphony Orchestra and the Utah Opera Company Nanette Riggs 288311 JFT2 Task 2 28 May 2014 RIGGS 288311 JFT2 TASK 2 A1. Financial and Leadership Strengths and Weaknesses of the Utah Symphony (USO). Financial makeup: The majority of income for the USO is generated through ticket sales, individual contributions, business and foundation giving, government grants, and endowment and investment income. The majority of expenses for the USO are orchestra salaries including related benefits and payroll taxes, as well as management costs, and fund-raising expenses such as bad debt charges due to pledges that went unpaid. Strengths: The USO has a historical budget of approximately 12 million dollars, with a net surplus of about $116,000 for years 2000-2001. The USO generates substantial revenue through strong ticket sales, resulting from over 200 performances on a year round schedule. Historically, this amounted to approximately 3.8 million dollars, with a projected increase in the coming year to over 4.5 million dollars. USO also realizes about 25% of its operating budget from grants, and while the amount is projected to dip slightly for the next year, it will remain close to 25% of the operating budget. During a time of financial hardship for the performing arts, the USO realized strong contributions from business and foundation giving of over 4.4 million dollars in the previous year, with projected......

...LYT2 Task 3 City of Seabreeze Virtualization Adoption Plan! Given the City of Seabreeze’s declining revenue stream and resultant financial situation, as well as simple good government, it is critical that the city find ways of reducing expenses while continuing to provide the services needed by the citizens of Seabreeze. This includes the city’s use of information technology. Technology investments cannot simply be eliminated, as they are a critical component of the city’s infrastructure on which key city services rely upon. Therefore it is necessary to identify technologies which can produce a greater return on investment (ROI) through reductions in the total cost of ownership (TCO) of the city’s technology assets. One approach that would meet this need that has been identified is the adoption of server, storage and desktop virtualization technology. These technologies not only represent a significant opportunity for the City of Seabreeze to reduce costs, but it will also enable the city to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, raise IT staff efficiency, and improve disaster recovery capabilities. 1. Virtualization benefits The term “virtualization” refers to technology that enables a single physical device, such as a server with a large pool of resources (CPU, memory, disk, etc.), to be logically segregated into smaller separate “virtual machines”, or “VMs” that are each given their own subset of resources based on their actual utilization requirements.......

...Lyt2 Task 1 A1 & A2. Simple Gateways, Inc. has flourished the past several years expanding to twelve offices throughout the western United States. Expanding to 12 different sites now brings new challenges to the stakeholders (Management) like: • Having multiple versions of documents that have been passed between 12 sites of office staff now has made each office very inefficient in running their daily operations. When this business was small it had one central location that used one version of documents that made it easy for management to make the right decisions on a daily basis which in turn allowed the stakeholders to make plenty of money to expand into twelve locations. As the company expanded, each new site had its own version of documents they used on a daily basis but they were not the same as the other sites. When you have multiple documents they could contain outdated or incorrect data, which makes it extremely hard for the stakeholders to come to a solid conclusion costing the company thousands of dollars. If the company had a single version of documents they were using at all the sites they would eliminate the incorrect or outdated data on the documents. This would allow the stakeholders to make solid conclusions on a daily basis and prevent the company’s loss money. • Since Simple Gateways has twelve locations, most of the documents are saved onto servers at each location. Each site has given permissive rights to specific person or persons to......

...for Proposal Response 3 Simple Getaways, Inc. Request for Proposal Response The current implemented IS in the Simple Gateways is designed to provide control benefits. The IS was intended to facilitate information to provide the stakeholder the ability to make better decisions and actions. (Chew & Gottschalk, 2009) The current IS produces multiple versions of the same documents used by the office staff. The offices are segregated from each other with their own file servers making e-mail channels the current means to share documents from one store to another. The multiple versions does not assure the information to be accurate or up to date. The staff is then left with misinformation to make decisions. The Simple Gateways IS does not provide a process to perform administrative tasks like approving sick leave or vacation requests. Stakeholders The Simple Gateways stakeholders are the customers, Domain Subject Matter Expert (SME), End User, Implementation SME and the company sponsors. (Skillsoft, 2015) Each stakeholder is effected by the data inconsistency deficiencies of the IS. The customer is given poor information performance when the information is inconsistent. Domain SMEs or the management staff are faced to manage the Simple Gateways with inconsistent information. They are also challenged to administer the agents’ time without the benefits of IS processing. The end user or the agents of Simple Gateways are faced to perform their tasks with poor......

...first the city can demonstrate the ability to provide the same level of services and show a reduction in operational costs. It also will have little impact on the 350 end-users who will likely be oblivious to the changes on the server side. Once this phase has been completed the city can proceed with virtualizing the desktop workstations to further cut long term costs. Training for the IT staff should be available so that they can be prepared to support the newly virtualized systems. This training should be done prior to the conversion to virtualized systems takes place with as much hands on training as possible. Doing so will help eliminate the support personnel feeling they are ill-prepared to maintain the virtualized servers. 3. Current state of diffusion of virtualization technology Diffusion refers to the degree which the technology is generally used and applied. Since the development of virtualization many years ago it has slowly become more widely adopted but was not commonly accepted at first. Due to technological advancements it has gained popularity over the last decade. A primary reason for its initial slow acceptance was the lack of knowledge of the technology itself. “A significant part of the cost of adopting new technologies is the cost of figuring out what technology is needed to produce the desired good or service and how to use it individually or as part of an existing production process.” (Comin D. & Mestieri M. 2013).

...BMA1 TASK 3 Many companies in the United States as well as around the globe are starting to develop an Entrepreneurship approach in their businesses. Here is a brief summary that identifies some of the entrepreneurial actions that organizations use to create opportunities for innovation. Independent Action Organization can benefit by allowing and encouraging individual employees or teams of employee’s to be creative and pursue new ideas or visions for the organization (Bateman, Bateman, Snell & Snell, 2012). Risk taking Organizations that are willing to take risks and financially invest in new products and ventures, puts them in the position to launch new ideas into their own markets or create new untapped markets before competitors that tend to stay on a proven path are able to do (Bateman et al., 2012). Proactive Organizations that are proactive in addressing potential problems that may arise and see all the possible opportunities are able to create new markets before organizations that tend to be reactive instead of proactive (Bateman et al., 2012). Competitive Aggressiveness Action oriented organizations are driven to take over a market and capitalize quickly. This allows the company to expand and make opportunities for themselves before their competitors in the marketplace (Bateman et al., 2012). Companies that promote entrepreneurial culture, empower employees to pursue new ideas, take risk backing those ideas, are proactive in......
