The success of implementing any new technology depends on high user adoption and numerous reports reveal that getting people up and running on new deployments is a key concern for CIOs:

  • In a survey by Sandhill group and Neochange, 70 per cent of respondents cited end user adoption as the most critical factor for realizing software success and ROI
  • When asked what their greatest concerns after an application rollout of are, almost a third of TechRepublic members (32 per cent) stated end user adoption problems

However, according to Mark Gilbert, research vice president at Gartner, more than 40 per cent of enterprises do not properly consider process and organization issues when installing an enterprise content management system.
