Aligning Organizational Requirements with Enterprise Systems Capabilities: The Role of Domain-Specific Knowledge
Rosemann, Michael, Vessey, Iris, Weber, Ron, & Raduescu, Corina (2007) Aligning Organizational Requirements with Enterprise Systems Capabilities: The Role of Domain-Specific Knowledge. In Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS) 2007, 9-12 August 2007, Keystone, Colorado, USA.
Lack of alignment between organizational requirements and Enterprise System (ES) package capabilities appears to be a key factor in problematic ES implementations that have been showcased frequently in the press. We present a model that describes an effective alignment process as one in which the level of the customer's and vendor's shared understanding of both organizational requirements and ES package capabilities leads to a high-quality evaluation of fit between the customer's requirements and the capabilities of the ES package. We then focus on the role of domain-specific knowledge as a major factor influencing the effectiveness and efficiency of the alignment process. We present two cases representing significantly different levels of domain-specific knowledge that support this notion.
