Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Whitepaper Why do few developers get requirements definition right? Understanding what end-users want from a software project at the outset is crucial if projects are to remain on track. Yet a combination of poorly understood processes and inadequate tools often compromises this important phase.

The US-based research firm Standish Group’s regular Chaos report details IT project success and failure rates. Its 2010 figures showed an improvement, but general success rates are low.
