The internal enterprise has not agreed on the process and plan. Not having a leader with enough vision throughout the implementation process leads to the project often being protracted.
Consulting partners may be strong in certain areas but lack an open mind in connecting with other software. In the current expanding business context, closing the door to information is similar to isolating the business itself.
