Become familiar with the 2 selected platforms.

Make a recommendation of which platform you would choose to install.


Task 2 In your second task you will expand on the reason you chose the platform that you did. You must present a proposal with a good argument as to why the platform was chosen and recommended. You also need to add a section on how you will purchase the licenses for the recommended software. You might use an existing situation, a previous one, or make one up. If you include a paragraph at the beginning explaining the business this will help support the recommendation you make.

Ensure correct referencing is used.
