CPT 2560 — Server and Infrastructure Integration 3 Credit hours 4 Contact hours
Identify, gather, analyze, and write requirements based on user needs and design, construct, integrate, and implement an information system as a solution to a business problem. Students will apply key systems integration architecture, methodologies, and technologies using industry best practices. User needs and user centered design will be applied in the selection, creation, evaluation, and administration of the resulting system. Computing applications hosted on dynamically-scaled virtual resources available as services are considered. Collaborative and non-collaborative "cloud-resident" applications are analyzed with respect to cost, device/location independence, scalability, reliability, security, and sustainability. Commercial and local cloud architectures are examined. A group-based integration of course topics will result in a project employing various cloud computing technologies.
Prerequisites: CPT 1420, CPT 1625.
