Key Factors For Enterprise Software Project Success:

  • Determine the potential ERP solutions to consider
  • Determine the total investment for each alternative considered
  • Determine the best deployment alternative (local, hosted, SaaS, etc.)

Organizational Change Management

The lack of a strategic Organizational Change Management plan is one of the top reasons why enterprise software implementations fail. Top industry researchers, including Gartner and others, have surveyed many companies over the years with the same results: If you do not manage the Organizational Change associated with a software implementation, your chance of success is less than 50%, and even lower in some studies.
