You are the IT Manager of “Minerals”, an exploratory mining company here in BC. Your organization is small, but relies heavily on IT systems to manage resources and plan future acquisitions of mineral rights. The company is moving from legacy, purpose-built accounting, finance, and marketing systems to an off the shelf ERP system. The new system will integrate with Mineral’s existing Geographic Information System (GIS) and allow Management to pull data from a single application. Minerals has never performed this scale of an IT project before.
Prepare a brief (1-2 page) internal memo outlining the key risks of such an implementation, as well as any processes/controls you would put in place to mitigate those risks. Consider both technology and business risks.
