Successful Packaged Application Implementation

Successful Packaged Application Implementation

As the borders of your enterprise expand across geos and ecosystems, the performance of packaged applications becomes critical to keeping all the moving parts functioning together. However, while packaged solutions can be implemented faster and cheaper than developing the solution from scratch, there are also risks. Successful implementation requires proper planning, specialized product knowledge and skills, and rigorous testing.

Realizing operational ROI from packaged apps requires field-tested project management, integration, tuning & optimization, and performance monitoring methodologies.

Leveraging packaged solutions can save time and money if best practices are followed. However, due to vendors’ proprietary tools and methods, packaged applications usually require specialized skills that tend to be assigned to other high-priority projects. Then there’s the costs of recurring maintenance and upgrades, all of which can impact your TCO and ROI.

Xoriant has been involved in package implementations with different packages and across different industries over more than 15 years. The in-depth experience and technical expertise required to assist you during any and all phases of a packaged solution project – comes with Xoriant.

Implementation: Processes & Best Practices

Implementation: Processes & Best Practices

Our packaged app implementation methodology leverages industry business models and best-practices for fast implementation and strategy-driven configuration to deliver on the project scope and vision. Our approach is systematic and structured, yet efficient and cost effective. We achieve this by focusing on clear understanding of requirements with gap analysis and reduce risks by using pilots and parallel testing. We place emphasis on conversion and integration to mitigate conversion risks.

Benefits

While packaged applications can accelerate implementation of strategic initiative, they do not necessarily reduce the costs or the risks. Implementation process must be supported by business buy-in, configuration of the software, data-conversion and also careful planning to mitigate business risks during the implementation process.

Due to proprietary tools and methods, packaged applications require resources with specialized skills and these resources tend to be expensive leading to a high cost of implementation that often leads to over-budget and late implementation. In addition, recurring maintenance and upgrade cost can have significant impact on the ROI.

Functionality risks are significant. If not carefully planned and anticipated, via a change management and pilots, implementation can cause business disruption resulting in negative ROI.

However, businesses can tremendously gain by leveraging off the shelf packages that can provide immediate benefits of industry best practices and reduce implementation lead-times. For certain classes of applications, highly matured packages are available where risks can be successfully managed.
