Using Internally Built Systems: Best Practice Roundtable
Even as EHS and sustainability software becomes more sophisticated and common in the work place, many organizations rely on internally-built systems for data management and reporting.

When implementing an enterprise-scale MIS, the enormity of the initial implementation phase can sometimes obscure what lies ahead. Development of processes to ensure appropriate maintenance of the system after implementation is critical, but too often does not receive enough attention up front. This presentation will discuss some of the specific challenges of ongoing system maintenance, such as processes for data capture, stakeholder buy-in, user acceptance, and development of internal system expertise.
Mark Pratorius, Client Services Manager, IHS
Technology experts estimate that nearly half of enterprise software implementations fail to achieve the desired objective of streamlining and simplifying EHS compliance and sustainability management. Constructing a detailed implementation plan and corresponding business case is critical to the success of any enterprise software solution implementation. This presentation will provide industry best practices for effective software implementation planning and show why organizations should do it before sending an RFP.
