A WEB 2.0 CASE TOOL SUPPORTING PACKAGED SOFTWARE IMPLEMENTATION

Harris Wu, Georges Arnaout

Abstract

Companies increasingly rely on implementing packaged software instead of developing custom solutions. Packaged software implementation (PSI) is the process to solve business problems by customizing and integrating an off-the-shelf software package. However, there has been a lack of CASE (Computer Aided Software Engineering) tools to support PSI. This paper presents a Web 2.0 based tool that supports case-based reasoning in PSI. The tool helps users explore past design cases, find a similar case, and reuse the design for that case in new problem situations. Our belief is that by utilizing the social power of a large group of users, better designs can be achieved at lower risks and lower costs.
