Eliminate lawsuits. Comply with accessibility regulations today!

In today’s digital world, your website and online presence must comply with accessibility regulations. The Department of Justice (DOJ) published the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards for accessible design in September 2010. These standards state that all electronic and information technology must be accessible to people with disabilities.


Programming Wars? That’s history

The early days of computer programming were quite daunting for everyone. Different types and makes of desktops and PCs had their own unique features and architecture and computing power was expensive. This forced programmers to create specific machine instructions so that different machines could understand and interpret the code. This proved to be slow and tough for programmers. When Object Oriented Programming (OOP) languages came into existence, it helped programmers to solve many problems instead of spending time on writing machine instructions.


It's never too late for change management

“It's a terrible thing to look over your shoulder when you are trying to lead - and find no one there" - Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Oh boy! What happened? I thought we all agreed that this new system would be a good thing? Why won’t people just trust?” Does this sound like you?


Never too early for change management

“Projects with excellent change management effectiveness were nearly six times more likely to achieve project objectives.” ~ Prosci 2015[1]

You’ve made the decision to upgrade or recreate your IT system. You’ve considered technology, parameters, oversight, vendors, money, timing, schedule and much more. But have you considered what can be your biggest asset or your most tenacious roadblock – your people?


What is Enterprise Content Management?

According to the Association on Information and Image Management, “Enterprise Content Management (ECM) is the systematic collection and organization of information that is to be used by a designated audience – business executives, customers, etc. Neither a single technology nor a methodology nor a process, it is a dynamic combination of strategies, methods, and tools used to capture, manage, store, preserve, and deliver information supporting key organizational processes through its entire lifecycle.”

What is the difference between data conversion and data cleansing?

Data conversion is the process of transforming data from one format to another. While the definition of data conversion may be straightforward, the process itself isn’t. Converting data can be a challenging process; it involves extracting data from its original source, transforming the data into the desired format, and finally, loading the data into a new location.


Don't Forget Your Pants: Thoughts on Managing Change in the Face of New Technology Solutions

Managing change is a tricky thing indeed. When I consider the concept it immediately brings to mind my parents. That is to say, it makes me reflect on how my Mom manages the change and my Dad blankly stares into any conversation regarding it. When my parents went to Italy for a few weeks when I was a teenager, I distinctly remember how it all played out. My Mom was in charge of the tickets, hotels, packing, money conversion, etc. On top of which she also made sure to collect all their important paperwork and sit me and my two sisters down to discuss what to do in the event of an emergency. 


4 Best Practices for Facilitating a Successful JAD Session

In a previous post, I talked about the benefits of Joint Application Design (JAD) sessions. In case you missed it, or you are unfamiliar with the concept, a JAD session is a workshop in which multiple project members collaborate to outline the development of a software system. Typically, a JAD is lead by a single person given the important responsibility of being the “Facilitator.” In today’s post, I’ll offer a few suggestions that will help you JAD Facilitators out there lead a successful session. These are some of the very same practices used to great success by our own Sagitec delivery teams.
