Unmet expectations come in many forms.  The project can have budget over-runs due to poor planning. The project can have schedule creep for the same reasons.  This risk of project failure is what we refer to as the Implementation Chasm.  


  1. Can’t Cross the Chasm?

Despite a huge need to get more value from data, most businesses remain staring at the implementation chasm not knowing how to cross it.  Most BI implementations fail to “start a fire.”  They fail to move from the early adopter phase to the early majority phase often because of a lack of a strategic leap that would power the crossing of the chasm.  

But what if you could get to your strategic leap faster?  How can that be done?  

  1. Consider Using an Accelerator!

In every software implementation there is a desire to get to where you want to go as fast and as efficiently as possible.  Our accelerator apps will help you make the strategic leap to cross the implementation chasm.  Using our C-Connect / Accelerator solution for Netsuite, you can expect the following results:

  • An estimated time savings of 3-4 months per work stream
