Preventing Another Healthcare.gov: How CIOs Can Ensure IT Project Success



Agiloft’s new white paper helps CIOs avoid IT project pitfalls.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The rollout of Healthcare.gov was plagued with problems, from insufficient infrastructure and poorly written code, to lack of advance end user testing or capacity assessment. But Healthcare.gov is not alone in these issues. In fact, the current success rate for IT projects is less than 25%.

To address this high rate of IT failure, Agiloft, a leading provider of business process automation software, has released a new white paper, How to Ensure the Success of IT Projects. Based on the input of over 70 CIOs and senior IT managers, this paper provides actionable advice to ensure that IT projects are successfully delivered on time and on budget.

Aimed at CIOs, project managers, and other IT professionals, it covers topics that could have prevented the Healthcare.gov disaster such as early user testing, developing clear requirements and engineering specifications, capacity planning, and ensuring that third party developers share project risks.

The white paper is available for download on Agiloft's website at http://www.agiloft.com/how-to-ensure-success-it-projects.pdf.

"With proactive, disciplined management and adherence to some fundamental tenets of IT project management, it is possible to virtually ensure the success of IT projects," said Agiloft CEO Colin Earl. "Agiloft's new white paper aims to improve the current success rate of IT projects, and hopefully prevent another Healthcare.gov."
