The applications suite will comprise a mix of bespoke software developed to manage various HR functions e.g. employee data, job-related information, appraisals/performance data as well as self-service portlets for leave applications and promotion requests.
Last week, you started to prepare reasonably detailed advice for planning and scoping purposes for the cloud-based system to be developed.
Carry out the following tasks –
1. Explain, in some detail, which aspects of AWS would be relevant or influential for the planned cloud-based systems development. Structure your write-up here in terms of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) issues and considerations.
2. A key aspect of the work will involve designing systems for storing and manipulating structured (relational) and semi-structured (key value and document-oriented) data. Discuss which aspects of AWS could be used to support this aspect of the HRM applications development.
