Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC)

The purpose of this assignment is to provide learners a basic understanding for identifying a proposal for collecting data, designing and developing a small database, and presenting the proposal to stakeholders.

To complete Part 3 of the Database Project Proposal assignment, create a PowerPoint (10-15 slides) presentation video discussing your database proposal. Using Loom, record your presentation and submit the Loom file to the instructor.

Apply principles of the systems development life cycle (SDLC) in your proposal by including the SDLC phases:

  1. Planning
  2. Analysis (What are the requirements of the current system’s end user?)
  3. Detailed Systems Design (Completes the design of the system’s processes, technical specifications, data dictionary, ERD diagram, training principles and methodologies.)
  4. Implementation (Database is actually created and is customized by the creation of tables and views, user authorizations, etc. During this implementation phase, the database enters into a cycle of coding, testing, and debugging until it is ready.)
  5. Maintenance (During this phase, end-users can begin to request change in it.)

You may copy and paste elements from past assignments that apply to the SDLC:

The presentation should include the following elements of the proposal:

  1. State the project problem and explain the role of the database in the organization.
  2. Identify database users (personnel/credentials): Who are they? What are their competencies and background?
  3. Discuss the types of data that users will collect for the proposed database and the types of reports that will be generated for analysis.
  4. Describe the project goals and clear measurable objectives for the database.
  5. Provide examples of database schema components: database dictionary and ERD diagram.
  6. Demonstrate database functions by providing a screenshot of basic MySQL statements and their outcomes for at least four rows: Statements include: CREATE TABLE, ALTER TABLE, QUERY TABLE, ADD A NEW COLUMN, QUERY – COLUMN FUNCTIONS, ADD A NEW ROW, QUERY – AGGREGATION, MULTI-TABLE-QUERIES – JOINING, and QUERY – MULTI-TABLE.
  7. Explain policies, procedures, and regulations (HIPAA) to assure security, privacy, and integrity of the database proposal.
  8. Forecast any potential problems or barriers to meeting the project goals and objectives. Are there any specific assumptions that need to be made?
  9. Conclude with the value of the project, emphasizing feasibility, necessity, usefulness, and the benefit of the expected results.
