IT Process 5: Integrate IT Solutions into Operational Processes

28 August, 2015 - 17:43

To ensure that a new or significantly revised system is suitable, the organization’s SDLC should provide for a planned, tested, controlled, and approved conversion to the new system. After installation, the SDLC should call for a review to determine that the new system has met users’ needs in a cost-effective manner. When organizations implement enterprise systems, the successful integration of new information systems modules into existing, highly integrated, business processes becomes more difficult, and more important. The challenges are the result of the interdependence of the business processes and the complexity of these processes and their connections. Any failure in a new system can have catastrophic results.
