Adapting Existing Systems

An option that is frequently overlooked is that of adapting an existing system. This option may offer short-term benefits, particularly while waiting for the release of a proven version of a packaged solution, and it is a potentially low-cost, low-risk solution. However, adapting and continuing to rely on an existing system does have some risks.

It can cause investment in potentially redundant technology platforms. It can create a reliance on in-house systems maintenance skills. It can prevent the improvement of existing business processes.
