SmartDefence is a software development company which focuses on integrated security
solutions. The company works on to find new clients who need security solutions for their
business and develop software to meet their security needs. Along with the software
development it provides other services like 24/7 support to the customers. The company operates
in three different locations namely: Toronto, Waterloo and Brampton.
Toronto location has got three offices in three different buildings and the distance between the
different buildings is not more than 800 meters. The management section of the company
includes a CEO, a President, two directors, a support manager, three sales and marketing
managers, and an HR manager. Along with the management team 70 programmers are working
in Toronto. Currently there are 73 desktop computers in Toronto (31 – main office and 21 for
each other offices).
Waterloo and Brampton have two offices each and the distance between different buildings in
each city is between 3-4km.
21 desktop computers in Waterloo (two offices): office1 has 10 desktop computers; office2 has
11 desktop computers;
26 desktop computers in Brampton (two offices): office1 has 12 desktop computers; office2 has
14 desktop computers.
In addition, all the managers have their own laptops which they carry every day to the work.
There are 4 main LAN servers: A Database server, a File Server, an Application server and a
Finance server that provides services to all employees as well as managers in the three locations.
These servers are installed in the Main office (Toronto).
Toronto will have 5 subnets: i) Managers ii) Office1 iii) Office2 iv) Office3 v) LAN Servers and
it uses a private IP: 172.16.0.0/16
Waterloo will have 2 subnets: i) Office1 ii) Office2 and it uses a private IP: 172.20.0.0/16

Brampton will have 2 subnets: i) Office1 ii) Office2 and it uses a private IP: 172.40.0.0/16
Your tasks are to network all branches, provide internet connectivity, e-mail services, remote
connectivity between other branches and Toronto, deploying other related servers as described
by the following questions:
1. Provide a LAN solution for each office connecting the computers together. What network
topology you are going to use for different LANs and why? Explain all connectivity devices
used by your selected topology.
2. Provide a solution for IP address assignment for the above offices. You need to explain the
type of IP address assignment (static/automatic), how the total solution is going to work and
what type of server you are going to configure?
3. How did you secure the LAN servers?
4. Employees also need to work from home. So, what you are going to do so that employees
can work remotely in a secured environment?
5. You want to provide a secured web server as well as email services to the clients. Place these
servers along with the other related servers (e.g., VPN server) in a DMZ area. Note: The
DMZ is connected to the Internet through a firewall. Where do you want to place the DMZ
servers and why?
6. How are you going to connect the branch offices in each city? What type of transmission
media you are going to use?
7. What you are going to do to provide a secured Remote connectivity solution among all
offices using a VPN.
8. Apply VLSM (Variable Length Subnet Masking) to subnet Toronto network, Waterloo network and Brampton network.

Evaluate how implementing best practices would have reduced the chances for failure. Provide support for your rationale.

Migrating to a new accounting information system is not an easy task. Many firms have struggled with this process, even though our textbook makes the process seem quite straightforward. Recently, IBM recapped some of the lessons learned in migrating to a new accounting information system within the federal government. These lessons can be applied to any accounting information system project. Others have developed their own recommendations for best practices and lessons learned involving implementing accounting information systems. However, in order to appreciate what IBM and others are proposing, we need to apply lessons learned to a real-life situation involving the failure to implement an accounting system properly.
For this assignment, research the Internet or Strayer databases for information related to a real-life accounting information system failure and best practices, as well as lessons learned from implementing the accounting system. In addition to information that you may find during your research, please use the following IBM article to complete the assignment: (http://www.businessofgovernment.org/article/what-we-know-now-lessons-learned-implementing-federal-financial-systems-projects).
Write a paper in which you:
Identify factors that contributed to the accounting information system failure within the business that you have identified. Indicate the impact to the business. Provide support for your rationale.
Assess senior management responsibility for the failure in question. Specify what the senior management could have done differently to avoid the failure. Provide support for your rationale.
Evaluate whether the most significant failure occurred within the system design, implementation, or operational phase of the process. Indicate what the company could have done to avoid the failed outcome. Provide support for your rationale.
Evaluate how implementing best practices would have reduced the chances for failure. Provide support for your rationale.
Based on your research, develop a list of between four (4) and six (6) best practices that organizations should use today to reduce the chances for failure. Provide support for your rationale.
Using the information provided by IBM and others, indicate which of the principles designed to provide insight into effective and efficient strategies on how to best deploy financial management systems, which were outlined within the related article, should serve as an example of what not to do when establishing the foundation for a firm to follow. Your proposed foundation should consist of at least two (2) principles, but no more than six (6). Provide support for your rationale.

Analyze the business activities that comprise an accounting information system to determine the information needs to support decision-making function.
Examine the phases of the systems development life cycle and key issues related to systems analysis.
Analyze the systems design, implementation, and operational process.
Use technology and information resources to research issues in accounting information systems.
Write clearly and concisely about accounting information systems using proper writing mechanics.
