1. Document Legacy System

Usually includes screenshots with text, access to physical database for reference, or we document existing database. Other documentation might include creating videos of old app focusing on walking through of various use cases.

  1. Create app record in Enterprise Modeling, complete 100%.
  2. Create Old Requirements Document project. Usually best to stick with one task/artifact per screen. Skip General Requirements because that applies to new projects.
  3. Add App Specific Actors.

2. I.T. Strategies for Hard Times

Difficult economic periods call for hard decisions. It's easy to be tempted to cut back on your IT expenditures but that can be a major mistake.

I.T. is the goose that's been laying the golden egg for businesses -for decades, now.   You don't want to starve the goose; you want to tune it up. It's crystal-clear that computing has enabled businesses to reduce costs, and increase productivity.

Custom-written software is one of the major ways that businesses gain advantages in savings, profits and productivity.  The reason is pretty simple: No two businesses, even in the same industry, do things the same way.  Mass-produced software, even for a specific industry, seldom addresses every requirement of a given business.

3. Upload a File to Prestwood / Download Files

For file management (to and from you), we do not normally use FTP. Instead we use our My Uploads feature to both upload a file to Prestwood and to view existing account files.

To get to your uploads, from the main pull-down menu click My | More... | My Uploads. Use the Upload a File option to send us a file. Use the File Manager options to view existing files you and others have uploaded to your account and files attached to notes. You can add a note to your account, tickets, and PSDP items (tasks, defects, requirement items, etc). All note attachments also show up in your My Uploads area.
