Resource Risk

GU has multiple systems and applications that must communicate with each other. Changes in the operating system and platforms must be carefully considered. One system can offset multiple other systems. GU runs multiple dashboards and overlays in order to access information globally in real time. The system has no downtime per se as the servers are updating every six hours (12am, 6am, 12pm, 6pm Central Standard Time) and different backup systems are in place globally and online.

The project has been planned out and GU has signed off on the plan. GU has installed development and test environments. No significant issues have been reported. The rollout throughout the office has gone well with support level and administrative personnel. The rollout is now extending to pilot users in the nursing graduate program. A system failure is occurring due to unknown software which many of the instructors and nursing students have loaded on their computers (desktop and laptop). The failure has brought down the system and is negatively impacting the credibility of the system. What is your first course of action? What plans and measures will you put in place, and how will this impact your schedule? What could have been preventative measures to reduce these risks?

Write a 3-4 page paper describing sources of resource risk. Please give examples based on your experience and/or from yourproject management textbook to illustrate the sources of resource risk. Save your assignments for review and use on your BA599 Capstone project.
