In addition, Team B’s recommendation will project the following:
• Internal/external expenses.
• Initial investment cost.
• Continued service and maintenance cost.
Team B proposes the following phases:
Phase Action Duration
Phase 1 Prepare a critique and presentation that addresses the benefits and disadvantages of using UNIX® or Linux® versus Windows Server® within Riordan Manufacturing. Five Weeks
Phase 2 Research UNIX features which include security, administration, networking, performance, programmability, and additional elements. Programmability Three Weeks
Phase 3 Final review and presentation of UNIX and integration services. One Week
Team B will look at who and how personnel are interacting with current business processes. We look at the current complexities of the network infrastructure and its utilization to facilitate business processes. Team B will document the current systems
