Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Transfer-Encoding: chunked ´╗┐The small charity has accepted my proposal of upgrading their anti-virus to a fully integrated Internet security suite. They currently have five computers, all of which require the software upgrade. They have asked me to create a comprehensive plan showing the procedures I will be following when upgrading the software. First, I will plan everything ahead of the installation of the software so everything works how I want it to work. To start, I will make a defined sequence of activities to follow in order to ensure the installation is completed successfully. I will check that the system meets the requirements for the software and decide if I will install a fresh copy or install over the previous software. Also I will ensure that the installation method is suitable. For example if the files are stored on a DVD, I will need to have accesses to a DVD slot and to make sure the hardware is compatible to that format. ...read more.

And Software vendors because if there are any problems with the installation then I will need to contact them.

When preparing for installation, it is important to ensure that i have a clear understanding of the materials and resources that you require. First I will obtain and allocate the required materials. I will check the requirments of the software to make sure that you have everything that works with the system. As well as allocating the correct materials it is also important to allocate the correct resources. This includeds manuals, installation guides and licence keyes. The guides are really useful and can help if you are unfamilar with the software. Correctly allocating the license keys is also important because I will need a valid key for each installation. This company want 5 copies ad therefore I will need to make sure I have a licence. If I follow this plan then the installation will be a success. ...read more.
