First read and examine the case study in the briefing document for Assessment 3 (attached under
the Assessment 3 Brief in Blackboard).
The case study will provide details on the background of the
company and some of the issues and challenges that they are facing. The company is willing to
benefit from implementing microservice architecture, cloud computing and web-based Information
Systems solutions, but needs your advice as an IS professional to analyse the issues and to
determine how best to resolve them.
The report should consist of the following structure:
Please write a 2500-word report containing your solution plan. To complete this assessment task,
A title page with subject code and name, assignment title, student’s name, student number, and
Introduction (250-300 words), that will also serve as your statement of purpose for the proposal—
this means that you will tell the reader what you are going to cover in your proposal. You will need to
inform the reader of:
a) Your area of research and its context
b) The key elements you will be addressing
c) What the reader can expect to find in the body of the report
Body of the report (1900-2000 words), you will need to Write a report with the following sections:
A definition and introduction to Microservice Architecture, Cloud Computing, and Web-Based
Examples of successful implementation of Microservice Architecture, Cloud Computing, and
Web-Based Information Systems for at least three companies in different industries. You
should include the benefit these technologies brought to them. You should also discuss the
challenges they faced in the implementation of these three technologies;
Make sure to focus on the aspects of Microservice Architecture, Cloud Computing, and WebBased Information Systems that fit well with the company’s business model
Discuss the challenges of creating a new system using Microservice Architecture, Cloud
Computing, and Web-Based Information Systems
Note: Use appropriate headings in the body of the report. Do NOT use generic words such as ‘Body,
Body of the Report, Tasks’ as section headings. Create meaningful headings and subheadings that
reflect the topic and content of your report. This is where you talk about Microservices, Cloud
Computing, and Web-Based Information Systems to convince stakeholders that they are reliable
solutions for their potential problems and needs. This will set the tone for your recommendations.
Make sure to include three examples for successful implementation of Microservice Architecture,
Cloud Computing, and Web-Based Information Systems in your discussions.
The Conclusion (250-300 words) will summarise any findings or recommendations that the report
puts forward regarding the concepts covered in the report
Format of the report
The report should use font Arial or Calibri 11 point, be line spaced at 1.5 for ease of reading, and
have page numbers on the bottom of each page. If diagrams or tables are used, due attention should
be given to pagination to avoid loss of meaning and continuity by unnecessarily splitting information
over two pages. Diagrams must carry the appropriate captioning.
It is essential that you use appropriate APA style for citing and referencing research. Please see more
information on referencing in the Academic Skills webpage
