Introduction

Part 1

This White Paper (2) is a follow on from White Paper (1) will propose a new system that could enhance An Garda Siochana’s ability to deliver on its strategic and operational objectives. It will describe the high level architecture of the proposed system, the existing systems that it integrates with and the main flows of data between the new system and An Garda Siochana’s existing systems as set out in White Paper 1. It will be shown how the proposed system will support the objectives of An Garda Siochana as identified in White Paper 1. Continue reading

Abstract

This White Paper discusses the influence of Software Project Failure on Project Management.
