Introduction
This is a project management plan for the Coca Cola Enterprise. The Coca-Cola product that has
given the world its best-known taste was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John
Stitch Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola continues to
touch the lives of millions of people each and every day; however there are cyber-criminals
seeking to deter Coca Cola from providing customer service. This project will discuss the
challenges, network needs, and solutions provided to reestablish the businesses network
infrastructure.

Project Management Approach
The Project Manager, Jeremy Watkins has the overall authority and responsibility for managing
and executing this project according to this Project Plan and it Subsidiary Management Plans.
The project team will consist of personnel from the Watkins & Associates Consulting Firm.

Project Scope

The project scope for the Coca Cola Enterprise is to reconfigure the networking protocols on all
hardware (i.e. routers, switches, servers, active directory, global catalog), software (i.e.
applications, digital dashboards, customer relationship management systems), and reestablish
network connectivity to each end user device with configured Internet Protocol Addresses. In
addition to the reestablished services, The Google Search Appliance will be integrated with Coca
Cola’s existing security and access control systems so that users only see search results if they
have access to the source content. The Google Search Appliance will support authentication,
single sign-on mechanisms, enable customization of user interfaces and security.

Project Change Control Process

The Project Manager, Jeremy Watkins is the approving authority to change and resubmit the
specific changes to the Executive Manger of Coca Cola Enterprise. These changes can be
communicated via electronic mail or facsimile; however, all changes must be documented in the
Communication Plan and resubmitted through the proper chain of command.

Work Breakdown Structure Plan



Quality Management Plan

The Coca Cola Enterprise Project
Provides improved technology to increase efficiency and accommodate increasing business
volume with limited staff resources.
Improve the quality and efficiency of Coca Cola Enterprise s’ processes by replacing the
underlying infrastructure and deploying secure self-service capabilities.
Improve the quality of fraud detection and fraud prevention efforts by providing better reporting
and improved system capabilities to detect and prevent fraud.
Improve performance and provide customer service at a desired level for Coca Cola Enterprise to
meet nationwide standards for response to customers.

Technical Success Criteria
The Coca Cola Enterprise Team will capture the requirements from the documents and load them
into a single database.
P a g e | 14

With this database, requirements will be traceable to higher level documents (Detailed Design
Documents).
Requirements will be categorized for quality testing purposes, and will be the basis for further
defining details of the technical success criteria.

Under supervision of the Project Manager, project staff defines and documents quality specifics
within the standard operating procedures for project quality. The standard operating procedures
document the characteristics that are expected of the developed software and other project
deliverables.

Testing
The responsibility for complete and thorough testing of the delivered system is the contractual
responsibility of Watkins & Associates. Project staff are responsible is for verifying and
validating the acceptability of the delivered system or component. Under supervision of the
Project Manager, project staff will provide oversight and participate in testing activities,
including system and acceptance testing. The Quality Manager takes the lead role for developing
testing requirements for the project that encompass the organization’s structured testing strategy
for security, network, applications, infrastructure, production-readiness and acceptance testing.
The Quality Manager coordinates with the Infrastructure Solutions and Management Division,
Test Team, the application areas and the Information Security Office to define types of testing
required and to identify existing testing resources to be leveraged. The project testing ends when
the new system is accepted and transitions into maintenance mode.

Current Network Survey
Coca-Cola’s main headquarters, based in Atlanta, GA, was recently hacked into by the world’s
most wanted computer hacker, Gary McKinnon. A former Network Administrator failed to
implement the intrusion detection systems, resulting in, Gary McKinnon infiltrating the Bandook
Rat Virus into the main headquarters. Afterwards, the Bandook Trojan horse spread to the sister
sites located in, Chicago, IL, San Francisco, CA, New York City, NY, and Los Angeles.
Bandook Rat is a backdoor Trojan horse that infects Windows NT family systems (Windows
2000, XP, 2003, Vista). It uses a server creator, a client and a server to take control over the
remote computer. It uses process hijacking / Kernel Patching to bypass the firewall, and allow
the server component to hijack processes and gain rights for accessing the internet. Gary
McKinnon invaded computer systems belonging to the US military in 2001, shortly after the
attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

As a result, the Coca-Cola Enterprise network infrastructure is in dire need of improvement.
Coca-Cola Enterprise is deprived of a safe and secure network infrastructure which will enable
them to communicate sound decisions and manage the flow of information concerning their
business revenue, employees, customers, and suppliers of inventory to operate successfully. Not
only systems to house information but software applications that will enable them to make new
approaches targeted marketing, future stock market decisions, refinance bonds, assess debt risks,
analyze financial conditions, predict business failures, forecast financial trends, and invest in
global markets. There is no official website at the five locations which supports systems with
ticketing and products, employment opportunities, promotional offers, and an outlet for
suggestions in increasing revenue for their return on investment. A database system and wireless
infrastructure not in place causes Coca-Cola Enterprise to become ineffective in analyzing cash
flows and information to and from its suppliers for smooth operations. In conjunction to their
inefficiency to analyze information effectively, they face challenges to obtain concrete data on
the company and its competitors along their supply chain to meet industry benchmarks that can
be influenced by numerous factors such as competition, prices, weather conditions, and
technological development.

The main difficulties Coca-Cola faces is the lack of internet access; sharing files, email and
collaborating remotely with other locations. Our primary challenge is to implement cost effective
solutions for Coca-Cola to stay on the cutting edge. Given the company is relatively large; it is
in Coca-Cola’s best interest to stay afloat with the fortune 500 companies.

Statement of Need
The following implementations need to be set in place in order for the Coca-Cola Enterprise to
function successfully:

 Internet Protocol Addresses and Domain Names
 Data Transmission and Networking Protocols
 Network Security
 Reestablished Servers
 Reconfigured Routers & Switches
 Reestablished Telecommunications
 Reinstalled Software Applications
 The Google Search Appliance (GSA)

The Google Search Appliance Overview

With Google Search Appliance 6.8, Coca Cola’s intranet or website search engine can be as
relevant and reliable as Google’s and just as easy to use. Google Search Appliance (GSA) can
provide the Coca Cola Enterprise universal search for business, enabling enterprise or website
content to be searched through one easy, familiar search box. The Appliance searches intranets,
web servers, portals, file shares, databases, content management systems, real-time data in
business applications, and cloud based systems, such as Google Applications, Google Site
Search, and other social networks. After the Google Search Appliance is implemented, it will
scale Coca Cola’s billions of documents effortlessly. The Search Appliance’s scalable
architecture allows multiple appliances within the organization to share search indices across
vast ranges of content and still provide unified results. This brings scale to exiting search
deployments, without disruption or changes to hardware or software, and allows unified searches
across multiple departments or geographies with separate appliances. The Appliance provides
rigid security across billions of content sources.
The advantages that Coca Cola gains compared to other Fortune 500 companies are as follows:
 Anticipated reduction in call handling time, resulting in 10-15% cost savings
 Increased search relevancy, enabling faster agent responses to customer needs
 Decreased in-house effort in security parameter
 Promoted bottom-line profitability and better business result for customers
 Improved end-user satisfaction
 Share search with other colleagues and document previews in search results
 Universal access to information

Expect these advantages to save the Coca Cola Enterprise over $1 trillion (USD) in economic
value per year.

Intrusion Detection Solutions
Watkins & Associates will provide Coca-Cola with the tools to manage their optimum
inventory levels for manufacturing processes by using server secured reporting tools to
communicate effortlessly and efficient. Each server provides the mechanisms for maintaining
the integrity of stored data, managing security and user access, and recovering information if the
system fails. Watkins & Associates uses the most competent telecommunication resources while
keeping the cost to a minimum. Coca-Cola is relatively large company. As a result, we’ve
implemented technology that will be catered toward the client’s needs.
Watkins & Associates will reestablish internet connectivity between Coca-Cola’s
effected locations and its main website which will market goods and services to customers
through electronic commerce, rather than writing a check or using cash. To build long-term
relationships between the customer and Coca-Cola Enterprise, Watkins & Associates offers a
solution to install a customer relationship management system (CRMS) and a digital dashboard
on Coca-Cola’s main server, located in Atlanta, Georgia. The main server will replicate the
software systems to the sister sites in Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
Upon successful implementation, utilizers of the CRMS and digital dashboard will be able to
provide information, assist in allocating advertising budgets, and maximize the lifetime customer
value for the company.
Snort Intrusion Detection Systems (SIDS), are security countermeasure solutions which
enhance network security of the network infrastructure. SIDSs are implemented at the
information infrastructure security level and serves as the next line of defense after the firewall.
They monitor network traffic of all the domains by pinpointing intruder attacks in real time.
When an attack is identified, Snort can take a variety of actions to alert the systems administrator
of the threat. The Snort Packet Sniffer has the ability to listen to all IP packets and decode them.
The firewall may block access points within the network; however, they are unable to decipher
between malicious activities of hackers. In contrast, intrusion detection systems can monitor for
hostile activity on these openings.

Recommendations

Within the contents of the Coca Cola Project Plan, Watkins & Associates has surveyed the
enterprises’ current network infrastructure, challenges, solutions, and costs to enhance the
development of interactive media. To increase revenue and scalability, Watkins & Associates
recommends that all solutions remain properly secured and updated for the integrity of the Coca
Cola Enterprises’ network infrastructure.
