Navigating a system procurement can be complicated and challenging. Organizations greatly benefit from an experienced team to help identify the appropriate business processes and requirements for a new or modernized system. Doing it right the first time helps to avoid costly premature replacements or upgrades. Projects involving planning, acquisition and development business needs should be clearly defined so that the right support is acquired to address these needs.
