1. IntroductionManual processes in any organizations represent scope for inefficiency, errors, challenges,adverse impacts on productivity and higher cost expenses. In this context, informationtechnology (“IT”) solutions in the form of integrated systems and solutions offers ways toautomate and enhance efficiency / effectiveness of various processes. In this context, thecase under focus relates to International Charity Foundation (“ICF”). All of the core internaland external processes at ICF are manual in nature spanning across the application /enrolment of the children who need its support, sponsor payments and receipt processes /issuance, inventory and stock management, and that of its internal book keeping. ICF hasallocated budget and initiated a plan to transform its manual processes to that of IT basedautomated processes by way of a suitable Enterprise Resource Planning (“ERP”) system.Page1
2. Approach to Systems DevelopmentThe various approaches available with respect to systems development encompasses – thepredictive approach of Systems Development Life Cycle (“SDLC”) which assumes a projectcould be planned / designed in advance as well as newer information system could besuitable developed as per plan, adaptive approach of SDLC focusses on the need for flexibleas well as adaptability towards the changing needs over the project course, phasesapproach focuses on grouping of the developmental activities, like that of planning,assessment, designing, implementation, as well as support , waterfall focusses on phases tpbe undertaken in a sequential manner without overlaps, spiral model represents adaptiveSDLC method which cycles over repeatedly all through the developmental activities tillclosure, incremental development focusses on completing portions pertaining to system atsmaller increments by way of iterations, and, walking skeleton approach focuses oncomplete structure of the end system to be built with just the basic functionality (Beynon-Davies 2016; Fuggetta and Di Nitto 2014).In case of ICF, it has to be noted that objective is to develop an ERP form of informationsystem that meets specific process digitization / automation needs of the company. Thesame can be addressed by way of a single ERP system which can be implemented andintegrated within the company in a phased manner, in a sequential schedule with no phaseoverlaps. In the context of the same, a waterfall framework aided by the framework ofproject management is proposed to undertake the systems development at ICF to meet itsobjectives. Given the lack of experience or capabilities for development internally, ICF shallbe required to outsource the development process to the external contractor.Page2
