Managing complex software projects

How do you do it now?

How do you keep your data?

When did you last review your office set up? A lot of businesses think they have it in the bag.

If you have a small business which spent a significant amount on a package X years ago, you may not have given it a second thought since.

Maybe you have separate spreadsheets for your HR, stock control, CRM (customer relations management), or finance? Are your systems on separate computers, working independently from each other? Working this way may have been a step forward at the time it was introduced, but it also came with its own set of issues – inconsistencies, duplication of work across systems, making training and processes more complicated.

So is there another way?

Like every other area of business, software capabilities change massively over time. It may be that all areas of your business can be covered by one database working ‘in the cloud’ and be accessed from any PC, anywhere with an internet connection. Suddenly this makes ‘annoying but necessary backroom admin’ into an invaluable, constantly updated operational tool for anyone with permission to use it. Now, doesn’t that sound appealing?

Of course navigating your way through potential software providers can be difficult.  They will definitely be eager to charge a premium for their service. They might want to customise an ‘off the shelf’ product, or create from scratch – but whatever they do will always be based on their own technical abilities, and not whatever may be the best solution for your business.

It all looks very complicated…
