Lesson 5.1 Information System Acquisition
The Information system acquisition process begins with a request by senior management to determine if a new system is required, an existing one is in need of replacement, or a system needs to be updated. An evaluation of the need, critical success factors, and priority is made, where (hopefully) the system fits into the strategic plan and timeline of the organization. Upon approval of the need, a system vendor is selected, and then a contract is negotiated and signed. An outside consultant or internal staff may be used/selected to guide the acquisition process. (Wager 2009, pg 144).
Acquiring information technology can be an enormous investment in staff, hardware, software, and re-engineering. Besides the initial costs, there are a host of long-term costs associated with maintaining, supporting, and enhancing the application(s). All short-term and long time costs need to be identified in the acquisition of process. Too often IS applications are acquired without exploration of other options, without evaluating costs and benefits, and without gaining sufficient involvement from key constituent user groups €“ and the results can be disastrous. This discussion identifies the people who should be involved in the activities of acquisition, and the questions that should be addressed in acquiring an IS application. (Wager 2009, pg 144).
Your deliverable for this submission deals with eleven acquisition steps. Please note the number of steps may differ, BUT the overall content of an information systems acquisition process is here, whether expressed in more or less steps.
1. Your submission uses Exhibit 6.1 Overview of System Acquisition Process (Wager 2009 pg. 144) plus some additions by the instructor. Create a table similar to the below, and in size 10 font, place your discussion in its respective cell. If it is easier for you, you are welcome to do the table in Landscape mode. Each cell should contain two to three paragraphs.
Acquisition Steps What is the impact of this step in the long-term success and failure (if the step is not completed appropriately) of the total system? What role in this step, if any, do you see for yourself in your current/future career. Find a web reference for a real world example of this step. Summarize this example, and compare it to Wager and your own experience.
