Describe SDLC steps in implementation relating to DRMS

Scenario: You are working as a system analyst for a non-profit organization whose financials are mostly from donations. You are thinking to create a Web application to manage the donors, similar to a CRM (customer relationship management) system. So, let’s call it a DRMS (Donor Relationship Management System).

What to do: Imagine you were hired as a system analyst, based on the SDLC framework and materials you learn from this class, write up a short paper (less than 5 pages, double spacing) for the followings:

1. Describe what you will do for each step in SDLC up to implementation. You will need to relate the steps to the DRMS. For example, who are the users of DRMS and what are its functional requirements? You do not need to actually do the design such as the DFD, UI and ERD. But you should describe what they are and what you expect them to be.

2. SDLC is only a framework. As stated in Chapter 1, you will need a process model to execute it. What exactly is a process model? What process model, e.g. Waterfall, Agile, Spiral, etc. will you adopt and why?

Remember, ensure that the pages are exclusive of the cover and the reference pages. Also, ensure that you include all the references you use in finding research for this assignment paper. References should be at least three for the paper. All references, citation, and writing should follow the APA formatting and styling guidelines. Finally, ensure you focus on the assignment topic in detail.

Ensure that you follow the instructions provided keenly. Marking of the assignment is on how you do the task and how you submit the assignment too. In case of any question feel free to ask your instructor for more guidelines before doing the assignment.
