​Project Deployment Success: What to Know

5/22/2017
Deployment isn’t sexy. That's shocking, I know. Nevertheless, project deployment must be flawless.  Like any essential part of a project, a successful deployment can make or break a project's long-term future. The challenge with deployment is that you have only one chance to do it right. Deployment of business-critical applications must be completed on time so that the business users can perform the tasks that the project is enabling or streamlining. Only when deployment is complete can the project begin to provide the financial, compliance, strategic, or other benefit envisioned long ago when even the business case was but a dream.

If so, then it may be time to re-visit your strategy for gathering BI and analytics requirements.

2/28/2017

In addition, even small changes invariably seem to create new defects, which are time-consuming to track down and fix.

If some or all of the above paragraph seems all too familiar to you, then your organization probably has a problem with technical debt. Read on to learn the four steps for paying down your technical debt.
