    I find "Resistance to change" & "Support from higher management team" as the most important aspect of implementing / handling any IT project.

    "Adoption" is the key to any successful IT project.

    Management may find the IT solution costly before the implementation but once you show the results, it truly justifies with the ROI.

    IT is the future. IT is driving the business.

    I live in present. Try to make your day the most beautiful day of your life.
