  • Linda Manzano United States of America In order to have the ability they need to retrain personal in the new process and that is OT(overtime),extra time additional to the project.

    • Ebene Ocheni Nigeria Additional support can be eliminated if the resources available to operate a systems is adequate and kept intact. By resources I mean the skill personnel, physical and technical adequate to implement the system. Effective management of these resources will eliminate the need for additional support. Again training to to meet the need of the system for its implementation is important instead of outsourcing. Adequate management of both human and material resources eliminate needs for additional support.

    • Glyn Chapman United Kingdom Again through training however if the additional support required is to enable the system to work then in theory there is no way but to implement the additional support required.

  • Jones Hanungu Munang'andu Zambia Acquiring information systems Information systems are a major corporate asset, with respect both to the benefits they provide and to their costs. Therefore, organizations have to plan for the long term before acquiring and deploying information systems. On the basis of long-term corporate plans and the requirements of various individuals from data workers to top management, essential applications are identified and project priorities are set. For example, certain projects may have to be carried out immediately to satisfy a new government reporting regulation or to interact with a new customer's information system. Other projects may be given a higher priority owing to their strategic role or greater expected benefits. Once the need for a specific information system has been established, the system has to be acquired. The fundamental decision is: buy or make. Actually, this decision is not quite so simple. It is rarely possible to buy exactly the right information system. Although the hardware, telecommunications, and system software may be purchased or leased from vendors, information systems generally require a customized approach. An information system must model the specific, and possibly unique, way that a particular organization operates. Acquisition from external sources There are three principal ways to acquire an information system from outside the organization. The most common method is to purchase or lease a software package that is usually customized internally or by an outside contractor. Instead of an expensive purchase or rental, an organization may decide to use the services of an application service provider (ASP), a firm that makes applications available over the Web. This practice is particularly popular with very expensive packages, such as those for enterprise resource planning, in which customers pay for the use of only the software modules that they actually need. Finally, a number of firms outsource day-to-day running and development of their information systems to a specialized vendor.
