An extract from her post:
Who’s been here?
You work in a big company.
You lead a department that has a system that is dying or dead.
You don’t need the space shuttle.
You need something to keep you in orbit for a year or two.
Your system need isn’t big enough to merit capital.
This was my situation last year. I had to have a system that worked within 1 year or I was screwed. My internal team was in transition and I didn’t know if they would be stable enough or able enough to get this done after I announced the death of the legacy system. (Back then, we were new to each other. Now I know they CAN.)
My budget wasn’t big but I knew I had to do something.
I needed to up my odds of success.
The vendor that helped build my new, interim system is CAE Solutions. It wasn’t easy; but it got done and done on time and on budget. The new system has been up and running with great success for 11 months now, and we are headed into our second busy season with it.
I have no vested interest in CAE, and this is not a sales pitch. I took a chance and it worked out. System builds rarely have happy endings for many reasons. This one did. Call Anil Gupta at CAE solutions if you need help. It worked for me.
