Business Process Reengineering: A Consortium Approach with End Users as the Architect Produces Dramatic Results

Sunday, January 1, 1995


Business process reengineering teamed with technology produces dramatic results. Legacy software is transformed into systems, architecturally designed by users. This paper describes how eight diverse Florida community colleges combined fiscal and human resources, through a consortium and vendor partnership, to develop mission-critical applications. The consortium, in partnership with Software AG, is using a Rapid Application Development (RAD) methodology to concurrently develop integrated finance, student information, personnel/payroll, and facilities systems. Specialized design teams combine the end user architect with consortium and Software AG system design experts. These baseline applications will be stored in a central repository and maintained by consortium teams.
