"Any fool can buy a new machine; but will it still be working in a years' time?" was advise given to me many years ago as a departmental manager in a factory. I have since learnt that the same advise applies to Software as a Service (SaaS).
This three-session workshop helps in understanding what can go wrong when buying Software as a Service, plus identify the approaches to prevent mistakes:
- Welcome & Introductions
- Buying a Software as a Service
- How quickly can it be deployed, configured and active?
- The difference between configuration and customisation
- "... but will it still be working in a years' time?"
- Coffee Break
- What SaaS can do for you
- Task Management
- Resource Management
- Project Portfolio Management
- Time Management
- Extend SaaS functionality
- What-if calculations
- Roll your own charts
- Migration to a SaaS solution
After a short introduction by each attendee, the tutorials will be 'full on' for about 50 minutes, with Q&A afterwards.
- Who is this for?
- SME Company Directors plus directors in waiting, including Management KTP Associates.
