IntroductionAs you know, our office has outgrown our old desktop machines and it is time to consider upgrading. "The average life cycle of computer equipment is three years" (Donarski, 2012, p. 14). In order for our educational company to function as efficiently and effectively as possible, we need to make sure our technological tools are up to date to fit our current needs. I have spent a lot of time of researching our PC upgrades and believe that the strategy I developed will fit our goals. I did consider cloud computing, but I believe that can wait until our next upgrade. Our "business strategy and processes should drive technology decisions and expenditures, not the other way around" (Donarski, 2012, p. 14). Our new tower PCs will consist of microcomputers that will meet of all of our Director's thirteen (13) requirements.All aspects of our current PCs are outdated and our entire system needs to be revamped under: (1) hardware components; (2) system unit; (3) application software; (4) system software; and (5) Internet connectivity and Web-hosted applications and services. My detailed recommendations are located in the attached tables. In summary, we need five (5) PCs with 3ghz microprocessor chips, 6-8gb of RAMs, 1 TB of hard drive space, and Windows 8 operating system. Utilizing newer software versions of Microsoft Office, Adobe products, and McAfee will make a huge difference. The future success of our organization requires that we have the access to current technology that exceeds the needs of both our organization and customers.
