IT infrastructure

An Energy Company currently has operations in Fresno, California and Chicago, Illinois. Company management
reviewed the company’s client list and realized that much of the company’s growth has been from an increase
in clients in the eastern and southern parts of the United States. Management believes that these clients could
be better served with more localized production and with sales locations in each region. The new locations
would also provide an improved possibility for growth in the regional client base.
Before expansion can take place, the existing IT infrastructure will need to be evaluated to see how it needs to
change to support the planned growth. You have been asked by the chief technology officer (CTO) to study the
current IT infrastructure using a SWOT analysis. You will research current and emerging technologies and use
your research to suggest an updated system that will resolve the identified deficiencies while also supporting
the identified strengths the current system offers.
