Any large software solution implementation involves a pilot project that should test the platform’s capability of meeting some long term objectives. The decision to run a pilot project should be made by taking into consideration some variables specific for the company, such as:
- The level of knowledge and experience of the administrators team;
- The training needs for the support team of level 1 and 2;
- An applicability study on the future platform’s structure and the emulation of the information flow inside the organization;
A pilot project must be the main assessment support for the future platform and applications that will be used. A key component is the estimation of the storage space that will be allocated for the feature project, the type and the sizes of the files, how the files will be loaded and the information source.
