Replacing an enterprise level system can be a overwhelming undertaking for any organization. This is often why enterprise will select a packaged solution, as this allows the organization to implement a complete end-to-end solution and customize where needed without engaging in building a system from scratch. When your organization chooses a packaged solution carefully consider the development methodology to be employed. The Agile methodology is ideal for a transformation project that implements a vendor supported packaged solution.
Key Reasons for selecting a packaged solution with Agile include:
- An established vetted platform
- Ability to leverage existing subject matter experts
- Customization via configuration
- Quicker organization engagement and adoption
The Agile methodology is ideal in that it allows your organization to gain product understanding while working towards configuring the final solution. It is critical that the organization is carefully guided through the Agile process to avoid many common pitfalls that can introduce delays and missed opportunities into the project. For organizations or teams new to Agile, the learning curve can be steep. The more mature the organization, the greater the challenge may be.
Techknowsource professionals have the expertise necessary to guide and coach your organization in using the Agile methodology. Having expert Agile coaching is key to avoiding risks when implementing using the Agile process. Make sure you surround your team with plenty of resources who will bring their experience to the table to keep the team and implementation on track.
