Complex Computer Replacement Planning Methodology

CRE8 Independent Consultants help organizations plan for replacement of Complex Computer Systems. Key to our services is our R.E.P.L.A.C.E.™ approach.

Realization assessment of the actual work, resources, and timeline required to replace your current complex computer system. CRE8 works with executives, managers, staff, and information technology to assess replacement: goals, timeline, alternatives, resources and budget. Identify ways to extend life of current system.

Evaluate and select replacement option (e.g. port, COTS (off-the-shelf), or custom development). In this step, CRE8 conducts option: research, assessment, ranking, and cost/justification analysis.

Provide assistance to gather detailed requirements for the selected replacement option. CRE8 will work with your staff to conduct the following work. Document the appropriate level of module, sub module, interface and database requirements. Evaluate if the replacement option will positively support processes, staff, and customers. Identify what functionality must be included in the first version verses what can be in future versions of the system.

Assess vendor approach. Evaluate vendor: teams, product, service, methodology, quality assurance, support, proposal, costs, and references.

Conduct quality assurance review of vendor. Throughout implementation compare and measure requirements (acceptance criteria) to accepted deliverables and costs to budget.

Evaluation of vendor completion. Intervene and mediate as required to resolve final differences in application, cost, or acceptance.
