communicate with each other on the go and share required data and information with clientsand other stakeholders as and when required. A mobile and desktop application will bedeveloped that will track all the progresses at one place. A server will be setup that willintegrate the data on both, mobile and top. Cloud computing will be used for data storage as itis comparatively more secure and requires less security focus.Identified MethodologyThe methodology that has been identified for the current project is Scrum. Scrum is a part ofagile movement which focuses more on communication and collaboration than completingthe project on time. The purpose is to ensure that the project develops as per the client’srequirement with multiple outputs. The Scrum methodology consists of three work units,namely, product owner, scrum master, and project team (Singh, 2008). The scrum methodwill have five key elements under consideration. They are project planning, release planning,sprint, sprint planning, daily scrum, sprint review, and sprint retrospective. The beneficialaspect of Scrum is that it allows appreciable level of freedom to the team members workingon the project. The scrum master will only act as the facilitator and will ensure that the teammembers face minimal challenge in completing the project activities. The product owner willdiscuss on the overall project goals and objectives.PMM and Project CharacteristicsThe project is smaller in size and is expected that it will take not more than four to fivemonths to be implemented. This whole duration will have multiple sprints of varying degreethat will be focused on development of various modules. The project is likely to requireseveral iterations during the overall development. The company owners who are willing toimplement the system have no prior experience of the implementation of the IS of this type.This will require that the company stays in constant touch with the project development team.
