Different Systems and Software Sources
Week 7: Discussion
This week’s Discussion is designed to help you understand the different systems and software sources that companies can choose to implement their projects. At the end of this Discussion, you will be able to determine what makes some systems and software sources better choices for a project than others.
• Identify two examples of different systems and software sources that companies have chosen and that resulted in unwanted consequences, leading to delays in or abandoning of the projects.
• Identify the reasons for the problems in the examples you identified.
• Discuss how a different sourcing arrangement could have been more beneficial to these companies. Support your response with appropriate examples.
