Students who do very well on this assessment tend to split up the assessment expectations into headings and address each point.

Purpose
For this assignment, you will test TWO different tablet PCs: for example, iPad vs. non-iPad or Android tablet vs. non-Android tablet, in order to compare the interfaces. You might not own any of these devices, but do not be discouraged. Local electronic shops such as the Apple Store and Best Buy are willing to let you test these devices. So, feel free to explore them there if you need to.
Task
The comparison should be easy based on three simple, specific tasks. Make sure that you describe the tasks in detail ahead of time, and they are the same for both target devices. For example, from the “home” or “main” screen, open the web browser, and type “http://www.uwm.edu” to load the UWM homepage (on BOTH devices).
Interact with each of the interfaces, completing the three tasks for each.
Report what you like about your interaction with the interfaces and what you don’t like. Remember, your primary source should be your own experience with the interfaces, not someone else’s. Do not base your report on consumer reports or word-of-mouth from family and friends.
What to submit:
Begin with a brief description of the tablets: the purpose, expected functions, and intended user population for each. Tell what you liked or didn’t like about each of the tablets.
Describe the three tasks you chose to test. Report any differences between the ability of the tablets to complete the tasks. Analyze your experience in light of the human factors concepts discussed in the learning resources, e.g. gulf of execution, gulf of evaluation, mental models, mapping, semantic distance, articulatory distance, affordances, cognitive load. Include any suggestions for improvement. Please highlight the human factors concepts by bolding them in your submission.
Criteria for success
Students who do very well on this assessment tend to split up the assessment expectations into headings and address each point. You are welcome to use this for an outline:
Brief description of the tablets
purpose of the tablets
expected function of the tablets
intended user population of the tablets
My experience with the tablets
what I liked about the tablets
what I didn’t like about the tablets
Human factors concepts

Suggestions for improvement of the tablets
Check the rubric for work that meets expectations.
Students achieve ‘exceeds expectations’ by including all of the minimum requirements of the assignment, and then go beyond the minimum expectations in some way. Extra point (for a total of 11 points) will be given for work that exceeds expectations. For instance:
Description of tablets: Detailed purpose of the tablets, detailed expected function of the tablets, detailed intended user population of the tablets
Experience with tablets: Detailed likes and dislikes with appropriate examples
Human Factors concepts: Fully define terms, give excellent examples, fully connect examples to definitions
Suggestions for improvement: Improvement suggestions for all weaknesses found, provide additional suggestions for improvement

Competency
In this project, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following competencies:
Develop an information technology operations plan
Determine what information technology policies, laws, regulations, standards, and contracts are applicable in a given situation
Scenario
Intelligent Computer Services (ICS) is a global technology innovator and implementer of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, with specialization in the finance and retail industries. ICS employs more than 150,000 individuals and has offices in 120 countries around the world, with its global headquarters in Dublin, Ireland. Its U.S. headquarters are in Chicago, IL, and other U.S. office locations include New York City; Austin, TX; Minneapolis, MN; and Seattle, WA, to name a few.
To support its global footprint, ICS has built and managed five global data centers in Dublin, Chicago, Albuquerque, Singapore, and Tokyo. These data centers support ISC business objectives, as well as data center colocation space for its clients in the developing world.
Ten years ago, ICS initiated a global assessment of its information technology infrastructure intending to start migrating its critical business solutions to cloud computing services. Unfortunately, as a result of the global economic recession, ISC had to put the initiative on hold to restructure its business operations to focus on growth and revenue improvements.
Recently, with a 30% ($43 billion) revenue increase from ten years ago, double-digit profits, and cash on hand of about $7.5 billion, ICS’s board of directors approved an executive proposal to migrate 75% of its critical technology infrastructure services to the cloud in three years.
The proposal aims to leverage native cloud services, software as a service (SaaS) solutions, infrastructure as a service (IaaS) platforms, and security services, as well as being multi-cloud. This cloud migration journey will include large human capital, finance, and talent development initiatives to ensure continuous delivery of first-class client services.
The CIO has approved the strategic plan and roadmap for the SaaS solution and the implementation of Oracle HCM Cloud (Project One). Additionally, the human capital transformation initiative is in progress. Both initiatives are expected to go live in the next six months. As ICS plans the global release of the HCM solution, it is essential to have a well-defined operations plan to support and maintain the SaaS solution and apply the recommendations from the transformation.
As part of the service acceptance team, you have been tasked with working with all key stakeholders to develop an IT operations plan for the new HCM processes and cloud solution.
Directions
Strategic Plan and Mission
Explain how the organization’s strategic plan and mission relate to the operations plan. The plan should demonstrate an alignment with the organization’s mission and how the operations plan supports strategic planning efforts.
Business Continuity
The plan should identify the tactics chosen to ensure that personnel and assets are protected and are able to function quickly in the event of an interruption to service. This might include a schedule to run periodic maintenance tests to ensure that system recovery works properly, or implementation of employee training in advance of an emergency. Another identified tactic could be development of a communication plan that would prepare other organization members for disruptive events.
Vendor Management
The plan should identify a process to guide the organization in how it will engage with its vendors. This could include strategies to reduce potential risks related to vendors (e.g., due diligence) or to address underperforming vendors. It might also include developing a central system for storing, managing, and reporting on vendor-related information.
Compliance and Standards
The plan should address the relevant regulations related to legal compliance and industry standards, and how the organization plans to comply with these in its day-to-day activities. For instance, this could include identifying specific security measures to protect personally identifiable information.
SLAs and NDAs
The plan should determine how service level agreements (SLAs) and nondisclosure agreements (NDAs) might impact IT operations and systems planning. For instance, this might define the level of service expected from a vendor or what will happen if a vendor underperforms.
What to Submit
To complete this project, you must submit the following:
Operations Plan
Your report should be 3 to 5 pages, double spaced, and submitted in a file format that your instructor can easily access (.PDF, .doc).
