Do you face project management challenges often, even after planning well ahead? Dave Gordon, author, and expert from The Practicing IT Project Management blog says preparing too much in advance can also create issues. While planning is applicable for civil engineering projects, software system requirements change frequently. That is why Agile methods, which emphasize frequent iterations, get better results and success. In this Rebel’s Guide to Project Management article, Elizabeth Harrin and Gordon discuss management challenges companies face during SaaS implementation.

Gordon describes how companies fail to recognize that SaaS implementation is customer-centric and not technology-based.

You must restructure your data by formatting suitable data models to get value from historical information.Most businesses do not know how to help users because no internal resources are available with the required SaaS knowledge. This is one of the many management challenges that can become a business bottleneck.Some companies have multiple ties to third parties. But they do not know how to integrate the new technology platform into their security framework.
