Abstract
Building a payroll program for a large organization with offices spread across the United States has many changelings and most be done in a particular way. Thus having the right application architecture is important where the design is concerned, because the company has one large data center that each office connects to via a wide area network (WAN). Hence the appropriate architecture for this situation would have to consist of a WAN diagram to be used in management of this project, along with system documentation, and information technology architecture documents to provide a visual representation of the

Cost estimates should also not be overlooked when final decisions are being made.There should also be consideration for scalability in reference to the new system ability to expand, change or downsize easily to meet the changing need of a business enterprise, if the need call for it in the future. Besides all of this it would be important in implementing systems that are volume-rated, such as transaction processing systems, that could have more than what it was supposed to take on. Below is a diagramrepresenting the basic layout of what the different parts of the architecture would look like and the different technology parts and equipment minus the software?

Some software applications will include procedures for web integration, which would require an information system with applications. Thus a Web-centric architecture would avoid many of the connectivity and compatibility problems that typically arise when it comes online and users (Employees) start accessing it through the web.With the new system being put into place other legacy systems may need to be integrated with the new applications. Thus the interfacing of both would have to be consistent with the requirements to analyze different types of data formats and compatibility. Those implementing the new payroll system should know if the…
