We have a software product that models very large enterprises. We are capable of identifying the impact of a seemingly unrelated change to a software/system entity. I need a white paper that contains references for the total cost of the following topics:
1) Average operating costs for system downtime (per minute). I'm also interested in any other statistics that accompany this metric.
2) Average cost of producing and updating system documentation for new, and legacy IT systems that are undergoing change.
3) Average cost of application development, broken down into the costs per phase.
4) Any other statistical information that applies to the cost of software development is very helpful.
I'm looking for the project to following this process:
Step 1: Researcher will find articles that he or she determines may have the information I am seeking. Researcher will send a link to the article with a two sentence summary of the content to Joey for approval.
Step 2: Joey will approve/disapprove the article and data.
Step 3: Writer will write paper in sections that are pre-approved approved by Joey
Step 4: Joey will review paper and ask for revisions
Step 5: Writer will provide final paper.
If we decide that the paper needs to be longer than five pages, then I will pay you the same rate per page after five pages. For example, if you bid $100, I will pay you $20 for each page after the first five pages.
