13 CPS Assessment Deliverables Implementation Readiness Assessment SIS Options Assessment

14 What is a Readiness Assessment? An analysis of how well-prepared UC is to implement a modern student information system. The assessment will be based on sixteen “readiness” factors which CPS has found to be predictive of successful ERP implementation projects in higher education.

15 What is a Readiness Assessment? Three Goals: 1.Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the university to implement a modern SIS 2.Make recommendations to close gaps between where the university “is” and where the university “should be” 3.Provide an “implementation blueprint”

16 How We Collect Readiness Data University-Wide Data Collection Focus Group Sessions Individual Interviews Online Survey Implementation- Specific Data Collection Software & Services Vendor Data CPS ‘Experiential’ Data

17 Readiness Assessment Deliverables Readiness Scorecard & Recommendations Analysis against 16 readiness factors Specific recommendations to close gaps Implementation Blueprint Detailed project plan for UC based upon readiness

18 Sample Readiness Scorecard

19 Implementation Blueprint Elements Implementation Timeline Realistic Budget Project Organization Roles & Responsibilities Table Communication Plan Critical Issues Lists Risk Mitigation Plans Staffing recommendations Training Plan

20 What is an Options Assessment? Comparison of major student information systems in the market and their compelling differences to provide a ranking and recommendation for UC.

21 What are the Options for UC? Single Vendor ERP Solution Multiple Vendor ERP Solution Multiple Source ERP Solution

22 How We Collect Options Data Technical Interviews & Survey Software & Services Vendor Data Collection CPS “Experiential” Data Industry Awareness & Research Requirements Fit-Gap

23 How We Analyze the Options Solution Offerings UC Needs Match to Functional Needs Strategic Alignment Time to Solution Total Cost of Ownership Solution Track Record Technology Framework Deployment Options Others…
