Project Implementation Process (PIP)


About PIP

Typically Informatics Implementation Projects involve the implementation of a vendor software product,
a software release. a system enhancement, or an in-house developed software product. Usually, one or
more user departments are involved as well as vendor representatives, Informatics staff, and external consultants.

Prior to starting  the Project Implementation Process (PIP), projects must have successfully completed the Project Evaluation Process (PEP) and the project has been approved for implementation. The Project Evaluation Process includes performing a needs analysis, and architecture review, and vendor contracting. The project evaluation could result in the definition of one or more projects to be implemented. Several distinct implementation projects rather then one large implementation could limit risk and aid in scope and resource management.
