At 5W our core capabilities are in implementing Data Systems, including systems that process data, like Business Intelligence and Data Warehouse applications. We so also look at the hosting and networks that support the Data Systems and work with partners, if necessary, for large or complex implementations.
Attention to detail while following the plan is the recipe for a high quality and successful implementation of a planned IT system. When something unforeseen comes up, all the resources on the team need to be used to push forward through the issue. That includes technical and non-technical staff, who must understand each other’s goals and capabilities. As with many areas of business, communication is the key, good communications ensure all on the project are aware of what they need to do and when.
Working to the plan and getting through unforeseen problems and changes delivers the system. All the stages to get the system running, build, test, pilot, user and operations training, etc. gets the project to the final commissioning into production. Aftercare and operational support from the implementation team build confidence in operations and the user base.
