Project Management

Project Management is the discipline of organizing and managing resources in such a way that these resources deliver all the work required to complete a project within defined scope, time, and cost constraints. This property of being a temporary and a one-time undertaking contrasts with processes, or operations, which are permanent or semi-permanent ongoing functional work to create the same product or service over-and-over again. The management of these two systems is often very different and requires varying technical skills and philosophy, hence requiring the development of project management.

Job Scheduling Evaluation Guide

White Paper Published By: Tidal Software     Published Date: Sep 03, 2008
IT groups must support many applications and servers across multiple platforms that frequently operate independently of each other. However, coordinating job scheduling across all these applications and networks is often required to optimize resource utilization. The traditional approach of applying more staff, toolkits, and rudimentary scheduling software to cobble together automated batch processing solutions becomes cost-prohibitive, inefficient, and error-prone, as the number of moving parts increases and the environment becomes more heterogeneous.

Prevention of ERP Implementation Failure

White Paper Published By: Adaptive Growth     Published Date: May 14, 2008
Projects to implement ERP tend to be difficult, expensive and drawn-out. They are often full of painful surprises and overrun budgets and schedules that were extravagant in the first place. They fail entirely in an alarming number of cases.  Why this should be so is not immediately apparent. If we list, at a fairly high level, the tasks required to implement an ERP system in a company that’s already familiar with ERP practices, what we see is a significant but not daunting amount of work.

White Paper Published By: Adaptive Growth     Published Date: Mar 12, 2008

ERP System Implementation Project Planning

White Paper Published By: Adaptive Growth     Published Date: Mar 12, 2008
ERP implementations fail – when they do – because implementation projects allow a few well-known risks to go unmanaged. These risks go unmanaged because the control of results slips from buyer to seller.  It doesn’t have to work that way.

ERP System Acquisition & Implementation Viewed as a Single Project

White Paper Published By: Adaptive Growth     Published Date: Mar 12, 2008
It is a truism that in any complex activity, the critical, defining decisions should be made as early in the process as possible.  In ERP implementation projects this principle is routinely undermined by the nearly universal practice of separating acquisition and implementation activities into separate projects, performed by separate teams operating under separate control.

Case Studies of Effective Use of Technology In Banking

Case Study Published By: Verint     Published Date: Apr 18, 2013
The vision for Celents Model Bank research was to try to answer an apparently simple question: What would it look like for a bank to do everything right with todays technology?
