Access-Sciences-Technology-Procurement-Frequently-Asked-Questions

What are the most common mistakes that organizations make when procuring enterprise software?

YOU ASKED:

The most common mistakes we see are an ineffective set of requirements and too little engagement with the potential users of the system. Requirements analysis is one of the most difficult aspects of the software selection or development process. Many organizations try to take shortcuts, whether it be adopting someone else’s requirements, trying to express requirements on behalf of their users, or assuming they can figure out the requirements as the system is deployed. Any of these approaches will result in requirements that fall short of the goal, which is to accurately reflect the users’ needs and voice.
