  • Imagine that you are a System Administrator who is helping a customer deploy a new database for their customer service department. Suggest the three (3) most important factors regarding the functionality and usability of the database that must be understood and communicated before you can design and deploy the customer’s database (i.e., size of the database, etc.). Justify the importance of your selected factors.
  • Suppose that you learn that the customer from the first part of this discussion is unsure as to whether the database is going to run only during normal business hours or whether it needs to run 24 hours / 7 days a week. Assess the importance of knowing this piece of information prior to deploying the database. Use examples when necessary to support your response.
