- Assume you are part of the systems development team at a medium-sized organization. You have just completed the database design portion of the systems design phase, and the project sponsor would like a status update. Assuming the project sponsor is a VP in the marketing department, with only a high-level understanding of technical subjects, how would you go about presenting the database design you have just completed? How would your presentation approach change if the project sponsor were the manager of the database team?
- Analyze the user documentation for a system that you rely upon for either school or work. Describe the type of system and the nature of the documentation. Would you consider it good or bad? Whether good or bad, how might you improve it?
- Using your favorite search engine, conduct a Web search for object-oriented analysis and design. What resources did you find?
Now that you’ve been introduced to both the traditional approach and the object-oriented approach, which do think is better? Why? In what situations do you think one is more appropriate than in others?
before its initial discovery in 1503 by Spanish explorer Juan de Bermúdez (Craven, 1990). Originally, Christopher Columbus wrote about the island during his voyage to the New World in 1492, reporting strange lights in the distance, erratic compass readings, and a flame of fire crashing into the sea (History, 2010). These unusual events, coupled with the shallow area of sea in no proximity to nearby land, caused much speculation for Columbus and his crew of sailors. Even before its popularization in Western culture as a “prodigious and enchanted place,” (Jarvis, 2010, p. 13), sailors passing by coined Bermuda the “Isle of Devils” upon hearing the calls of indigenous cahow birds, the squeals of wild pigs left by the early Spaniards on shore, and the stormy weather (History, 2010). This dangerous stretch of ocean recounted by sailors as a windless expanse of water replete with vessel remnants and debris is now known as the area of water between Bermuda and the Caribbean, officially called the Sargasso Sea (Jarvis, 2019). The first ship to be wrecked on Bermuda’s land by the treacherous surrounding rings of coral reef was the British Sea Venture in 1609, heading to Jamestown, Virginia (Craven, 1990). Allegedly, a great storm was attributed for the shipwreck that left over five hundred travellers stranded on the island for 9 months. Although the majority of passengers managed to continue their journey towards the final destination, three of the survivors decided to stay back (Craven, 1990). This eventually led to the country’s settlement as a British territory in 1612, with the Town of St. George proving the oldest continually inhabited English town in the Americas (Craven, 1990). The Sea Venture’s notorious shipwreck has been recounted in fictional narratives throughout history, even believed to have inspired Shakespeare’s acclaimed tale of shipwreck and sorcery, The Tempest (Lefroy, 1981). The countless tales of unexplainable ship and aircraft disappearances which have taken place in the deadly waters of the Atlantic Ocean’s triangular shaped territory aren’t the only thing that’s d>GET ANSWER
