Users Want Functionality First[edit | edit source]

This is a lesson part of the module ERP Presales and Business Analysis out of the Open Source ERP/Executive Diploma course conducted by a private university.

Topics[edit | edit source]

  • A frightening number of IT projects "failed"[1] - failed to meet budget, failed to meet deadlines and failed to meet user requirements.

Discussion[edit | edit source]

  • How many percent of IT projects fail and how many percent of ERP projects fail?[2] Why the difference?[3]
  • Why is it important for enterprise systems (and thus, the professionals who implement them for enterprises) to meet user requirements?[4]
  • What is the difference between the "Client" and the "User"?
  • In what ways can Open Source ERP professionals mitigate the risk of not meeting client/user requirements?
