1. What is the difference between the FRONT-END and BACK-END processes of office automation?

Front-end process refers to the way in which clients access the application. Back-end process refers to the way in which the application invokes remote services. In software development, the challenge of complexity is seen throughout the lifecycle: capturing requirements, creating design, architecture, coding, build, test, package, release. Nevertheless, the structure of the front end of the lifecycle is much simpler than the back end. In general, the front-end process involves fewer requirements in terms of design, architecture, and coding.
The back end is much more complex. Here you often have multiple targets for platform, language, app server, database, tooling, and, if the development is distributed, location. The combinatorial explosion created by this very common scenario introduces a level of complexity that often exceeds a development team's ability to manage. It is much more tedious, time consuming, error prone.

Request for Proposal (Computer Gaming Technologies)

>> Please see full details for the Case attached as "CaseA Part 2.doc"<<

All answers can be short descriptions.

Page 3 (towards the bottom) shows the assignment -- prepare a proposal in response to the following Request for Proposal that CGT issues to your consulting firm (which is defined on that page). (All figures are were uploaded separately due to size limits)

Use the Proposal Format defined on page 5. For this Request For Proposal you can disregard sections1, 2, and 3. Please submit this in ONE document.

NOTE: Although you need to address each area, you do not need to "write a book". Short descriptions are fine.

For example: In Section I. Estimate of Costs. You assess what you think might be the cost based on the number of rooms and employees and the level of security and your answer could be something like this:
F. Estimate cost. The cost of this project would be around 400k which could be depreciated in next couple year by providing reliable service and less outage.
