Project Overview

Team Discussion — Project Facilitation and Organization

Project Facilitation and Organization

The evaluation and selection process is being facilitated by the consulting resources within Acme, Inc. Acme has organized this project in a manner that solicited input from all levels within the firm. The evaluation, selection, and implementation of an information management system that allows the sharing of data across the enterprise are supported by the Acme management team, which has specific functional expertise and is accountable for approving the requirements outlined in this request for information.

Project Objective

Acme desires a fully integrated solution for the defined requirements but recognizes that this may not be available, practical, or cost-effective from one provider. In the past, a variety of non-integrated solutions have been implemented to support the information management requirements of various business functions. The use of these applications has improved effectiveness but has not satisfied the need for information sharing between users.

Project Objective

Some of the specific issues that are motivating Acme to search for alternatives to the current information management system include but are not limited to:

Manual Process

Reliance on an external manual process to supplement information storage and retrieval with significant reliance on Excel spreadsheets.


Upgrade functionality to support a growing set of business operations.


Support the integration of third-party, client-facing applications.


Difficulty accessing accurate and timely financial information used to manage business units.


Limitations of the existing systems to be upgraded to satisfy Acme information management requirements to take advantage of evolving technology.

Grow Business

Position the business to be prepared for substantial growth.

At a minimum, Acme expects the selected solution to provide the following:

  • Flexibility to support the financial and operations of each business unit.
  • Fully functional and flexible management information solution that provides all stakeholders with a system that assists in improving profitability and managing operations throughout the firm.
  • Support automated workflows.
  • Provide “dashboard” type executive reporting and create custom reports based on both financial and unit measures. Summarized management reports must provide user-defined financial metrics that are readily available, integrated, flexible, and directly functional by the end user.
  • Offer a solution that eliminates the need for disparate databases and duplicate data entry.
  • Integrate with other software packages as defined by Acme.
