The Deliverable

 

You are a team leader in a large software development organization and you want to

improve a software development process (of your choosing) through the use of a CASE

tool. In the tight economy, purchasing new tools requires a strong justification and these

tools are expensive. In this project search the Internet for CASE tool information and

develop a paper to persuade your CIO to purchase the tool for your team.

 

Create a document that includes the following:

 

• The paper should be 2-3 pages in length.

 

• The document must include a Cover and Works Cited page. The Cover and

Works Cited page are not included in the page count.

 

• The Cover page must include an applicable title and your name.

 

• The Works Cited page must include at least three (3) external resources (other

than the textbook and classroom resources) correctly cited using the APA format.

 

• The sources should be scholarly sources, not Wikipedia and the popular press.

 

• Use the Grading Rubric to be sure you have covered everything.
