Final Project Prompt:       

The final portfolio project is a three- part activity. You will  respond to three separate prompts but prepare your paper as one research  paper. Be sure to include at least one UC library source per prompt, in  addition to your textbook (which means you’ll have at least 4 sources  cited).

Start your paper with an introductory paragraph.

Prompt 1 “Data Warehouse Architecture” (2-3 pages): Explain the major  components of a data warehouse architecture, including the various forms  of data transformations needed to prepare data for a data warehouse.  Also, describe in your own words current key trends in data  warehousing.

Prompt 2 “Big Data” (1-2 pages): Describe your understanding of big  data and give an example of how you’ve seen big data used either  personally or professionally. In your view, what demands is big data  placing on organizations and data management technology?

Prompt 3 “Green Computing” (1-2 pages):  One of our topics in Chapter  13 surrounds IT Green Computing. The need for green computing is  becoming more obvious considering the amount of power needed to drive  our computers, servers, routers, switches, and data centers. Discuss  ways in which organizations can make their data centers “green”. In your  discussion, find an example of an organization that has already  implemented IT green computing strategies successfully. Discuss that  organization and share your link. You can find examples in the UC  Library.

Conclude your paper with a detailed conclusion section. 

The paper needs to be approximately 5-8 pages long, including both a  title page and a references page (for a total of 7-10 pages). Be sure to  use proper APA formatting and citations to avoid plagiarism.

Your paper should meet the following requirements:   

  • Be approximately 5-8 pages in length, not including the required cover page and reference page.
  • Follow APA7 guidelines. Your paper should include an introduction, a body with fully developed content, and a conclusion.
  • Support  your answers with the readings from the course, the course textbook,  and at least three scholarly journal articles from the UC library to  support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your  textbook. The UC Library is a great place to find resources.
  • Be clearly and well-written, concise, and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques.
