The new CTO of M3 Credit Union (M3 or Credit Union) is going to present the President and Board of Directors (BOD) an analysis and illustration of gaps in the current architectures. To clarify the analysis, the CTO will feature diagrams in the presentation. Diagrams of current infrastructure are important because the illustration provides a lens into the reusable building blocks. This discussion and analysis will result in a recommendation of a cloud solution for the credit union.
The CTO has asked you to join the team that will provide a recommendation to the President and BOD. Your first task is to identify the current infrastructure.
Use Microsoft® Visio® to create a 1- to 2-page diagram of the current state of M3’s infrastructure that identifies the existing hardware, software, and appliances that serves as a building block to a cloud solution.
Write a 1- to 2-page executive summary to provide your cloud solution recommendation to M3’s President and BOD. Include the following in your summary:
An overview of the business problem, needs, and desired outcomes
