Systems Implementation and Technology Integration

    Systems Implementation / Technology Integration 

    System implementation is the practice of creating or modifying a system to create a new business process or replace an existing business process. Technology integration is the practice of integrating multiple system activities to interact and generate information efficiently. In both cases, the system development lifecycle (SDLC) is heavily integrated in these practices. A CPA professional may be involved in designing a system, performing end-user testing, or training others how to utilize the financial system.

    This new white paper, developed by IMTA’s Business Solution Implementation Task Force, provides an overview of business solution implementations to help CPAs understand the leading practices for ensuring the value of Business Solution Implementations, and the critical role that CPAs can play to help ensure these initiatives are a success.

    This paper illustrates the process of bringing stakeholders and technicians together to build a business solution from idea conception to an operational deliverable. While the term business solution implementation can be broad and cover many aspects of selecting, designing, configuring and deploying a business solution system or application, the term can also apply to designing the hardware infrastructure, communication connectivity or the design/coding of a custom business application.
