System Development Life Cycle: Phase III – Design
OverviewNow that you have assessed the business, identified some of the inefficient HR-related processes plaguing Larson Property Management Company, and pinpointed a few possible solutions, it is time to choose an HRIS application that will best suit the business. In this assignment, you will provide a blueprint for the new system and select a vendor that provides the type of HRIS you believe is most efficient and effective.To prepare for this assignment, review the Larson Property Management Company case scenario on pages 114–115 of the textbook, and then research logical process modeling with data flow diagrams and HRIS vendors that may suit the needs of Larson Property Management.
Write a 3–4 page proposal, in which you do the following:

- Explain the importance of viewing the HRIS from both a data and process perspective. Next, explain how the change team will use this information to address identified needs from Phase II: Analysis.
Logical Process Modeling with Data Flow Diagrams and Physical Design Choice
- Based on your research of logical process modeling with data flow diagrams, explain the key business activities and processes in the HR system and how the data will flow. Next, determine the physical design and explain your reasoning for the design. Defend your decisions with theory and findings from past readings and class activities.
Choose HRIS Vendor
- Now that you know the type of HRIS you will be implementing, it is time to choose an HRIS vendor. Compare and contrast three vendors, including a description of the cost, capabilities, and HR functions that the HRIS caters to. Based on your comparison, choose the HRIS vendor that you will recommend to your client, and explain the main reason why you decided to choose this vendor over the others.
