  • Zinabie Tadesse Gebremedhin Ethiopia it must first be determined what the level of operation will need to be to meet the goals, and once this is determined, it can be established what resources will be needed to allow the system to run at this level. It will then be possible to evaluate if the organisation has the appropriate resources - including human, technical and physical. It might be possible for the organisation to be able to implement the system without the need for additional resources, however it is also quite likely that the organisation will need to provide additional resources for the system to be implemented. If the organisation needs to alter the nature of the resources it has available, it should be identified in the feasibility study.

  • Md Shohel Mahmud Bangladesh Not only the system, not only the able employees it also the ability of the company whether or not they have the capacity to run the system at an acceptable standard? does they have the ability at the same time to achieve original goal? these are also very important to look after.

  • Cyrus Wanjohi Kenya point taken If the organisation needs to alter the nature of the resources it has available, it should be identified in the feasibility study. and if the org will be able to sustain it.

    • Cyrus Wanjohi Kenya Once it has been established that the organisation has the appropriate skills to develop the system, the feasibility study must determine if the company will be able to keep the system operating at a level which will enable it to meet the original goals.

    • Cyrus Wanjohi Kenya For sure for sustainality of the system.

  • Aggrey Kegome Kenya Will the company be able to sustain operation of the system thus developed?

  • Abdi Abdullahi Kenya If the organization is changing an already existing system, How does it plan to transition from the old system to the new one? How does it break the bond that its staff formed with using the previous system?

  • Abdi Abdullahi Kenya A good note

  • 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. I will say if all this coming with the project budget them they should have the ability to keep operated in acceptable level.

  • ANNETTE ROBINSON United States of America How accurate is the feasibility chart?
    2014-09-09 00:09:39

    • Assel Satpayeva Kazakhstan A well-designed feasibility study should provide a historical background of the business or project, a description of the product or service, accounting statements, details of the operations and management, marketing research and policies, financial data, legal requirements and tax obligations. If all the factors are assessed the higher rate of the accuracy of the chart. And there is always a deviation factor (-/+) plus contingecy and risk mitigation plan.

  • Philip Pam Nigeria Sometimes creating the system is not just the issue the companies ability to sustain its workability is very important and this should be captured during feasibility study and not when the system have been created.

  • Samuel Kofi Odoi Ghana If the system is developed, how else could it be control?
    2014-08-14 22:08:17

    • Claris Eze Nigeria by creating a password and assigning a person to oversea it.
      2014-09-10 16:09:50
    • Yai Deng Yai South Sudan It can be controlled through already established mechanisms.

  • Vikram Vasant Rotkar United Kingdom How can the additional support be eliminated?
    2014-07-21 17:07:14

    • Yai Deng Yai South Sudan Through hring of experts to carry on the system.
      2014-08-25 14:08:35
    • 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.
      2014-08-14 20:08:29
    • 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.
