The elements of success in enterprise software acquisition and implementation projects…

Our experience and market analysis show enterprise software acquisition and implementation projects will succeed when companies know what they’re asking for when they set out to acquire a new piece of business software.

Market analysis shows that if an enterprise software acquisition and implementation project is to succeed it must be initiated with an approach a company does themselves that describes and documents how its business operates and works—business transaction by business transaction. The project’s critical expectations are documented as business requirements that are enforced in all phases of the project. The project produces a statement of work (SOW) that sellers will use to align their services or software system to a buyer’s business requirements and critical expectations in all phases of the project.

The risks associated with these kinds of projects are dramatically reduced or eliminated when buyers of enterprise software systems can describe their company in terms that will give software technology providers or consultants an accurate explanation of how a new software system will be expected to fit into their company as a whole.
