TxM 028 Section 3.1 Why not do it yourself without JAR&A? Created by James on 7/1/2013 2:27:27 PM
Once you have read this manual and become sensitised to the issues you may consider doing the work yourselves. Following are some reasons why it would be advisable to have some level of involvement from JAR&A:
1. Like engaging an architect to design a complex building
As a general guideline, the process of designing a suite of SEPT Taxonomies and Configuring your system is like the architectural design of a large and complex building. It requires a highly experienced architect with an intuitive ability to discern what is best for your organization to design a building that really "works" for you.
So it is with a suite of Taxonomies, the high level architecture needs to be crafted in close consultation with your executives by a senior architect and then fleshed out to give the total design. This work needs to be performed with painstaking attention to detail. JAR&A offer such services.
2. Years of experience
James Robertson has over 22 years' experience building taxonomies in the ERP, DW and BI domain and 43 years' experience with taxonomies. The design of really well designed taxonomies is abstract and complex.
3. Exceptional outcomes yield exceptional returns
The value of an exceptional, high value outcome is huge and dwarfs the investment in time and money many times over. It is not wise to place this return at risk. This is NOT the place to economize.
4. Mediocre outcomes are not immediately evident
A mediocre or poor outcome is not evident unless you really understand the real potential of what has been missed. You will only recognize a mediocre outcome if you dig into the standards and protocols that JAR&A apply and by then it will be too late.
Once you have fully configured and fully commissioned a business information system the cost of reconfiguring it is huge and out of reach of even the largest organization. This really is a "once in a lifetime" opportunity and it is therefore important to do it right first time!!
5. High precision outcomes cut costs
High precision designs properly implemented drive operating costs down and dramatically increase business benefit. This requires mature knowledge and experience to unlock the full solution potential. Cutting corners and saving money at the start is NOT the right thing to do.
6. Mediocre solutions drive up costs
A mediocre or poor design, whether well implemented or badly implemented, will drive operating costs up in perpetuity with no easy way to remediate the sloppy investment.
7. 20:80 -- NOT the place to economize
The SEPT precision configuration represents the 20% of the investment that will deliver 80% of the value return – this is NOT the place to economize.
8. We will train your staff
We will work hand-in-hand with your staff and train them in our methods to the extent necessary for them to deploy and maintain the solution but we will provide the high level strategic facilitation to ensure that the proper precision strategic framework is created.
JAR&A are the best route to follow to provide you with this service.
