Understand what Change Management is and how it can help your business


Change Management Software is a category of application software used to facilitate enterprise change and improvement.  It helps organizations to adapt to change by anticipating needs, modifying or displacing incumbent software applications.  In the context of application software development, change management involves tracking and managing changes to artifacts, such as code and requirements as part of software development life-cycle (SDLC).

How Change Management Software Differs to Traditional ERP Software

Enterprise software created for Systems of Record use cases – such as Financial, Manufacturing Resource Planning, Human Capital Management, and Customer Relationship Management software – is designed to impose best practice approaches to commonly performed business-critical processes within the enterprise.  It is unusual for Systems-of-Record applications to deliver a competitive advantage because they fundamentally install common blueprints and ways of working that all competitors in a market end up supporting.  In contrast, change management software exists to stay in-tune with enterprise needs for information processing as business models evolve over time.

The digital age has seen a dramatic increase in the pace of change in business model designs.  Whereas firms a decade ago wouldn’t change their business model more than once in a decade, today, organizations will review business model designs at least once every two years, if not more.

Advantages of Change Management Software

Change Management Software equips individuals or departments charged with business improvement – and command over the change management process within an enterprise – with the necessary tools to evolve information systems and to support the change process itself.  It brings the following benefits to adopting businesses:

  • Faster pace of change
  • Lower cost transformations in IT systems
  • Less organizational friction
  • Greater democratization of IT
  • More adaptive IT
  • Improvement competitiveness through faster-time-to-market of new customer value propositions, together with lower operating costs through more efficient systems and processes (and less manual processing)

Moving Application Platforms to the Cloud

Since 2007, the enterprise computing industry has been progressively leveraging cloud computing technologies to make applications more accessible and available to user communities. The use of cloud hosting applications has made it possible for applications to serve markets and users 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. One of the challenges of porting applications to the cloud has been the risk of data loss. Data security has become an increasing concern to organizations because of their greater reliance on data to continue business operations. Additionally, the increased compliance risks of processing personally identifiable information (PII) have made organizations more concerned about the security risks of cloud-deployed applications. Nevertheless, most application platforms today are deployed on cloud computing platforms as an applications-Platform-as-a-Service ([aPaaS]).
