When we talk about large scale systems implementation failures, we typically point to recent news (see Avon's failed $100 million SAP implementation ). However, we want to emphasize that massive IT investments gone awry is nothing new. And we are not simply talking about a few $100k, we are talking about hundreds of millions of dollars. Think about that for a minute… These systems implementation failures cost businesses billions of dollars in lost productivity, wasted resources, and operational drag (business experts from the “client / victim” having to guide the Information Technology “experts” how the system needs to be configured. Meanwhile, businesses continue to turn to these same software companies and their systems integrators seeking a different result. Checkout this link for the same types of failures that occurred in the 1990s - 2000s.
So next time you are thinking about undertaking an IT investment, overhauling a system, or enhancing an existing one, THINK DIFFERENTLY to get a different result. Think Kinetech. It is time to turn your business potential into dynamic performance.
