Large companies have been using the power of business analytics for quite a while now. Your company desires to get in on the action; company executives believe that using advanced data analysis will enable the company to make smarter decisions and improve business performance. Business analytics gives companies the ability to look at past realizations and performance as well as set up new expectations and performance goals. Analytics-as-a-Service is a new delivery model that uses cloud technology to provide business insights without enormous infrastructure enhancements. The executive team has heard great things about analytics and cloud technology but is apprehensive because they are unfamiliar with the look and feel of the technology. The executive team is interested in your recommendations and eagerly awaiting your forward-thinking viewpoint. Section 1: Design Document Write a four to six (4-6) page design document in which you: Support the need for the use of analytics and cloud technology within this company. Create a workflow diagram to illustrate how analytics and cloud technology could align with the companys business processes. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length but must be included in the design document appendix. Create three to five (3-5) screen layouts that illustrate the interface that organizational users will utilize. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length but must be included in the design document appendix. Give one (1) recommendation for solution providers that could help your company secure a firm advantage by using analytics and cloud technology. Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements: Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions. Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the students name, the professors name, the course title, and the date.

All references to these diagrams must be included in the body of the design document.
Amy: A Case Study Amy is the mother of three children: a daughter who is seven and twins a boy and a girl who are five. Her husband is an attorney and works long hours. Amy is a college graduate and worked in a professional role until the twins were born. Amy is an only child, social, attractive and very well organized. However, inside, Amy feels insecure, even worthless. Her mother was an alcoholic and her father died when she was ten. After her father died, Amy began to take care of her mother when her mother was too drunk to cook meals, or clean the house. Somehow, Amy always felt it was her fault her father died and her mother started drinking. She had always thought that when she got married and had her own family everything would be perfect. She never expected her husband would work seven days a week, 12 hour days. He rarely had time for the children or for her. Amy started drinking to numb her feelings of disappointment, but soon her drinking got in the way of taking care of the children and her home. How would you intervene with Amy? Write a three-page paper describing how you would develop and proceed with an assessment of Amy. Be sure to carry the assessment all the way through to the conclusion (diagnosis). Following your assessment, develop a comprehensive treatment plan taking into account a continuity of care approach and including models of treatment studied up to this point in the course.
After reviewing the following case study, write a three-page paper describing the diagnostic process you would use to determine if the adolescent described in the case study has a substance use disorder (substance abuse or substance dependence). Support your conclusions with references to the research literature. Be sure to include all the applicable steps of the diagnostic process and share your conclusions regarding whether or not she meets DSM-IV-TR criteria for a substance use disorder and why. Your paper should be in APA style 12 point font double-spaced Ashley: A Case Study Ashley is a straight A student who scores at the highest levels on every achievement test she has ever taken. In addition to being very intelligent, Ashley is also attractive. However, although she is at a normal weight, she always worries about gaining weight. When she was getting ready to study for her final exams, her mother offered her some diet pills to help her avoid getting sleepy while she finished her studying. The diet pills really worked and Ashley had lots of energy the next day, even though she only had slept one hour the night before. She completed her exams and received an A or A+ on each exam. She found out where her mother kept the pills and started taking them regularly. She found she had lots of energy and rarely was hungry. Soon Ashley began to find it hard to get to sleep and worried because her heart felt like it skipped beats or raced at times. She tried to stop taking the pills, but when she did she became very depressed and could not make herself get out of bed

This assignment consists of three (4) sections: a written project plan, revised business requirements document, project plan PowerPoint presentation, and a finalized project plan. You must submit the four (4) sections as separate files for the completion of this assignment. Label each file name according to the section of the assignment it is written for. Additionally, you may create and / or assume all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment. While taking all business and project parameters into consideration, make quality assumptions to support the following requirements. Section 1: Written Project Plan You are now in the final stage of the project plan development. All previous documentation should be combined into one document that will serve as the statement of work for the project. Your goal is to have the project approved by the executive team. The project plan should be very detailed, which is designed to accomplish the monumental task of implementation; however, the executive team is only interested in a 30-minute summation. Therefore, you also must create a compelling executive summary that is supported by your detail that convinces the executive team that they should move forward with your solution. Develop a thirty to forty (30-40) page project plan in which you: Write a five to ten (5-10) page executive summary that provides a high-level technical overview of your project in which you: Describe the scope of the project and control measures. Describe the goals and objectives of the project. Include a high-level overview of all project deliverables. Give a detailed, realistically estimated cost analysis of the entire project, including human capital. Relate the value of the project plan solution to the competitive advantage that information technology will afford your organization. Recommend solution providers who can assist with development and implementation. Combine all previous documentation for Project Deliverables 1-5 in which you: Provide all aspects of the information technology implementation into the project plan. Revise the documentation based on feedback from the earlier evaluation of your deliverable. Use at least five (5) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources. Section 1 of this assignment must follow these formatting requirements: Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format.

Give an example of a research question that includes an independent and a dependent variable. These are usually presented as, “How does A affect B?”, where A is your independent variable and B is your dependent variable. Describe the independent and dependent variables in terms of whether they are nominal (also called categorical), ordinal, interval, or ratio variables (interval or ratio variables are also called continuous variables). How would you study this research question? Guided Response: Review several of your classmates posts. Provide a substantive response to at least two of your peers that demonstrates thoughtful reflection and analysis of the discussion in relation to their variables and research questions. Were their independent and dependent variables identified correctly? Was the variable type specified well? What would you ask them for further clarification? DISCUSSION 2: Measures of Central Tendency. For this discussion, Come up with 20 different data points (set of data) and enter them into the first column in an Excel spreadsheet. The data points can be any numbers you want as long as there are 20 of them. 2. Your set of data should reflect one of the following criteria: Create a set of data for which the mean is greater than the median. or Create a set of data for which the mean and median are equal but are different from the mode. You will then use the descriptive statistics option in Excel, which is explained in Chapter 1 of your course text. You should get an output similar to Figure 1.2. This output must contain the following values: mean, standard error, median, mode, standard deviation, sample variance, kurtosis, skewness, range, minimum, maximum, sum, count. Begin your discussion by reporting your results for each of these values. Based on this output, which single value best describes this set of data and why? If you could pick three of these values instead of only one, which three would you choose and why? It is important to note that the answers to these questions may be different for each of you since you are each using unique sets of data. Guided Response: Review several of your classmates posts. Provide a substantive response to at least two of your peers. Do you agree with their selections of the best value based upon their data? This exercise requires the use of the “Analysis ToolPak” within Excel. This feature is already part of the 2007 and 2010 Excel program; however, it must be activated. The following directions were provided by the “Help” function within Excel. If you experience issues while following these steps, utilize the “Help” function within Excel or contact Microsoft’s technical support for Excel.
