Modern life is made up of alternatives. We are always something to choose. This also applies to our everyday life, and to the profession. In simple situations, we even do not think what to choose and how to do this in a complex – we are building a whole system of decision making and design for this mathematical tool. I think you will agree with me that the choice of software (software) to automate the management of the enterprise or, more precisely, for Support Management Information System (MIS) – a task not easy even for small businesses. And it is not even in the complexity of object choice as such, but for the most part, that from this object can be very depend on the results of your business activity.
This article was born on actual projects, like mine, and together with colleagues, and I have read of seminars devoted to solving the problem of choice. Naturally, that within a short article to discuss all issues related to the process of selecting software for mis difficult, so stop the procedure of selecting software for the automation of enterprise management. Ie consider work, which, in our opinion, should be performed on this project and will state our recommendations for this work. Why is it necessary? Currently, the cost of software products and their implementation is quite high. If also consider any other costs associated with process automation, the amounts are obtained even more. Proceeding from this, leaders must be sure that money on automation will be spent. Ie As a result, we obtain objective, valid from all points of view selection.
In addition, the question of optimal use of budgets allocated to automation. Consider the selection process, as some project. All work on this project can be divided into three phases: planning, selection, preparation of choice, the exercise of choice. During the first phase is carried out detailed planning of all resources of the project group (based on the initiative group or under the direction of the project initiator), the distribution of roles. During the second phase formed by the introduction of targets and requirements for software, developed criteria for comparison, we define a class software. And on the last phase you specify requirements to suppliers and learn their capabilities, and organizes the presentation software, develops and implements requests for quotation, to analyze incoming bids.
