Supporting a successful implementation project
Enterprise wide technology projects have become a way of life for organisations. Many companies are now partnering with external solution providers to deliver services that are beyond their capabilities.
While these projects can bring substantial benefits, they can become disruptive and costly; dominating time and resources and affecting core business activities.
Large scale programmes and projects are complex and place new demands on an organisation. If not properly managed, they often result in significant business and financial risks.
To ensure success with their projects, organisations must:
- define business requirements
- determine the ‘fit’ of particular software solutions
- choose the right vendors.
Many organisations lack the processes or expertise to successfully perform these tasks.
