Dear College President:

Per the goals of the IT department our project: Replacing PeopleSoft using the agile methodology, is designed to replace the current software at our college. By doing this we will create a more time and cost efficient software program at our college that will be used throughout all our campuses. The new software will be maintained and updated internally which in turn will result in a reduction of expenses. We are hoping to start and ...view middle of the document...

Overview:
In today’s world everything revolves around technology and our number one means of communication is through emails. At our college communication is imperative to the success of our students, relationships with our stakeholders and organizations within the community. Our organization uses PeopleSoft to provide many applications and it ties in to our email services. In order for our college to run at a more efficient level a new software program needs to be implemented. The success of the new software will be monitored and installed using the agile methodology.
PeopleSoft is a software program that allows the creation of application for a company throughout their departments.
PeopleSoft is an integrated software package that provides a wide variety of business applications to assist in the day-to-day execution and operation of business process. Each individual application, such as Financials, Customer Relationship Management and Human Resources, interacts with others to offer an effective and efficient means of working and reporting in an integrated fashion across the enterprise. -http://www.peoplesoft-planet.com/what-is-peoplesoft/
These applications make communication across multiple servers, departments, and employees of a company much more efficient.
PeopleSoft does not work well with our current email application. For all new employees a required orientation needs to take place and an hour of that time is dedicated to learning the email system. If the email application could work with PeopleSoft this would make it more user friendly. This takes a lot of time away from the staff at the college to train people on how to use the system. The cost of PeopleSoft is another reason why our organization is looking to replace it. Most of the costs are associated with the maintenance and having consultants on site. We would like to have an application that is more user friendly, cost effective and can be maintenance internally.
The scope of this project will help in the development of creating more efficient applications for our organizations success and reduce cost. The success of implementing the new system will be achieved by using the agile methodology
Agile development provides opportunities to assess the direction throughout the development lifecycle. This is achieved through regular cadences of work, known as Sprints or iterations, at the end of which teams must present a potentially shippable product increment…When a team stops and re-evaluates the direction of a project every two weeks, there’s time to steer it in another direction. -http://agilemethodology.org/
By constantly monitoring the implantation process of the new software a team can easily eliminate any complications that may arise. This can be described as “inspect and adapt” according to http://agilemethodology.org/.
“inspect-and-adapt” approach to development greatly reduces development costs and...
