The Factors Behind IT Innovation

The Factors Behind IT Innovation

Some of these factors can come into play when making a buy or pass decision on new technologies:

-- Does the technology or product meet a need that nothing else fills?

-- How critical to the business is the application or system it applies to?

-- What existing system elements will this technology interact with? What elements will depend on it and be affected if it fails?

-- How big is the potential payback from the technology?

-- What IT resources do you have set up to deal with problems or to fill gaps?

-- Will the product be implemented corporatewide or for one division or group?

-- What are your facilities for pilot testing and simulating new technologies?

Are they extensive enough to make you an attractive beta-test site for a leading vendor?
