Requirements Definition For Package Implementations


How do you go about defining the requirements of large package systems, particularly those with the all-encompassing scope of ERP, EAM, and CRM software, and still satisfy the needs to the project team, the user community, and executive management? It’s a balancing act rivaling the circus performer trying to keep all of the plates spinning at once. While it is difficult to say one aspect of a project plan is more important than another, accurately and completely defining the needs to be fulfilled by the software is critical to the overall success of the implementation and the longevity of software. This article outlines a logical process for defining the requirements and keeping the plates spinning.

As depicted below, a progression through these phases should provide users with a Read More

The Case Against Modifying Your Enterprise Software


The case against modifying enterprise software is a strong one. Standard software offerings are the products of millions of dollars of research, development, and extensive testing for consistent performance. For this and various other reasons, modifications almost never make sense.

Voice over IP Reliability


We all know that computers, generally speaking, have not been as reliable as phones. And the fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) surrounding voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) has been, in some cases, justified.

Enterprise Information Management: Strategy, Best Practices, and Technologies on Your Path to Success
