RIORDANS Service Request SR-rm-022, Part 2
Riordan Manufacturing is seeking a new system that will consolidate all of their Human Resource related data. Currently, the data that will be a part of the new system is spread out through different departments of the company. The new system will allow this data to be saved in a central location, while only allowing viewing access to certain employees.

Riordan must keep all company information and employee data from being compromised. All company data is proprietary and must be kept safe using passwords and data encryption. Only authorized users will be allowed access. . “Lawsuits alone would easily exceed $10 million and the cost of staff to find and reenter paper records would be enormous and certainly would take more than a few weeks" (Dennis, Wixom, & Roth, 2012). If the company’s information was to be stolen, this could lead to lawsuits from customers and would take enormous effort to reload.
"Interface design is the process of defining how the system will interact with external entities e.g., customers, suppliers, other systems" (Dennis, Wixom, & Roth, 2012). Since these systems will be capable of exchanging information with multiple other systems, Riordan must have a high level of security on them. Riordan can accomplish this by using passwords or key cards to require users to unlock sensitive and private documents, company tax records, or employee personal files. This would prevent employees from accessing others computers and attempting to steal personal and user information. For this system Riordan is looking to handle 500 users concurrently. This will allow enough users to access the system without excessive delays.
A recommendation for the network would be to incorporate a database company-wide. This database would be accessible only by a local area network (LAN) and allow employees to view or update limited information. For security, this would be checked by a payroll clerk or a supervisor. To do this would require a username or a password for security reasons. ...
