Barbara Carkenord will be presenting at the Atlanta SPIN meeting on July 21.

Event Description
Requirements should be developed upfront before the evaluation and selection of a software package. Analysis work also includes determination of the differences (gaps) between the package and the true business needs, decisions about what changes to make (customizations), and development of an implementation plan to smooth the transition for the business stakeholders. Most organizations buy application software to save time and money over internal software development. Thousands of software applications are available for sale giving organizations many choices. Choosing to buy a software application rather than develop it appears to reduce the need for business analysis and requirements but the reality is that analysis is a critical component of successful implementations.
