Task Summary
In response to issues and tasks raised in the case study provided, research and develop a 2500 word report that addresses the organisation’s needs. You first communicate your understating of Microservice Architecture, Cloud Computing, and Web-Based Information Systems with stakeholders to make a strong case before providing your recommendations as an IS professional.
Please refer to the Task Instructions for details on how to complete this assessment.
Context
When you begin working as an IS professional, you will be called upon regularly by clients to listen to their requirements, analyse the underlying issues and to identify appropriate solutions. This task allows you to take the concepts that you have learned from Modules 1-4 (history of computers, computer architecture, service-orientated architecture, cloud computing, cloud services, cloud deployment models, web-based IS, microservice communication, service modelling, integration and deployment) and to put your knowledge into practice in order to address the needs of an organisation.
Task Instructions
First read and examine the case study in the briefing document for Assessment 3 (attached under the Assessment 3 Brief in Blackboard). The case study will provide details on the background of the company and some of the issues and challenges that they are facing. The company is willing to benefit from implementing microservice architecture, cloud computing and web-based Information Systems solutions, but needs your advice as an IS professional to analyse the issues and to determine how best to resolve them.
The report should consist of the following structure:
Please write a 2500-word report containing your solution plan. To complete this assessment task, you must:
A title page with subject code and name, assignment title, student’s name, student number, and lecturer’s name.
Introduction (250-300 words), that will also serve as your statement of purpose for the proposal— this means that you will tell the reader what you are going to cover in your proposal. You will need to inform the reader of:
a) Your area of research and its context
b) The key elements you will be addressing
c) What the reader can expect to find in the body of the report
Body of the report (1900-2000 words), you will need to Write a report with the following sections:
• A definition and introduction to Microservice Architecture, Cloud Computing, and Web-Based Information Systems
• Examples of successful implementation of Microservice Architecture, Cloud Computing, and Web-Based Information Systems for at least three companies in different industries. You should include the benefit these technologies brought to them. You should also discuss the challenges they faced in the implementation of these three technologies;
• Make sure to focus on the aspects of Microservice Architecture, Cloud Computing, and Web-
Based Information Systems that fit well with the company’s business model
• Discuss the challenges of creating a new system using Microservice Architecture, Cloud Computing, and Web-Based Information Systems
Note: Use appropriate headings in the body of the report. Do NOT use generic words such as ‘Body, Body of the Report, Tasks’ as section headings. Create meaningful headings and subheadings that reflect the topic and content of your report. This is where you talk about Microservices, Cloud Computing, and Web-Based Information Systems to convince stakeholders that they are reliable solutions for their potential problems and needs. This will set the tone for your recommendations. Make sure to include three examples for successful implementation of Microservice Architecture, Cloud Computing, and Web-Based Information Systems in your discussions.
The Conclusion (250-300 words) will summarise any findings or recommendations that the report puts forward regarding the concepts covered in the report.
Format of the report
The report should use font Arial or Calibri 11 point, be line spaced at 1.5 for ease of reading, and have page numbers on the bottom of each page. If diagrams or tables are used, due attention should be given to pagination to avoid loss of meaning and continuity by unnecessarily splitting information over two pages. Diagrams must carry the appropriate captioning.
Referencing
It is essential that you use appropriate APA style for citing and referencing research. Please see more information on referencing in the Academic Skills webpage.
You are strongly advised to read the rubric, which is an evaluation guide with criteria for grading the assignment—this will give you a clear picture of what a successful report looks like.

Conclusion
10% The presented conclusion is summative in nature, and/or there are other significant problems with its execution. Makes an attempt to roll-up from the analysis provided in the paper. There may be summative
elements, but the focus of the conclusion is in providing
something for the reader to go away with. Provides a concluding set of remarks that set a tone for the
reader to do something with the report. It may lay out future directions or
recommendations for the
reader clearly based on the analysis from the report. Elegantly concludes the paper with a compelling case for
future direction that argues a case for continuing or
exploring Microservice Architecture, Cloud
