What you will learn
Most people totally underestimate what is involved in making a successful soft-ware purchase. City of San Diego CIO Johnathan Benkhe observes “the larger the organization the more chaotic the approach to selecting enterprise software.”
A little internet research about enterprise software selection will turn up a lot of information. Unfortunately, much of the advice offered is too high-level to be useful, and some of it is simply wrong. This book will help you make successful software purchases by describing what to do, how to do it, and why it works. This is not academic theory; it is actionable advice, developed via multiple evaluations in the field. Understanding why it works is critical as it allows you to modify the process in order to meet your specific needs.
In this book, you will learn two critical things:
How to select software that fits your needs like a “glove fits your hand.”
How to reduce implementation risks so the new software goes live on time, within budget and with minimal business disruption.
