What are your thoughts on citizen developed applications (also called end user computing) without the knowledge or participation of the IT department?

Top Answer : I think it is fair to answer, it depends. If it something developed by an individual to increase their productivity, I have no issue and that has been happening for years already. If it is supposed to support a group of users, then I get more concerned about sustainability of that solution over the long run. In those cases, I would prefer to partner with these folks to document, create/buy, and manage the solution so that it becomes something that can outlast individual creators and provide value to a broader range of folks in the company.

What’s worse: too much or too little implementation time?

Top Answer : A lot of the enterprises need to follow the startup world’s lead and just implement things without arguing about changing and customizing them first. Because 90% of the functionality will work and they can adapt to using it, rather than trying to customize it to mimic the exact way they want to do things. I've come to the conclusion that sometimes you're better off saying, "Forget your current processes. We're going to put this in. Start using it and maybe we'll go back if there's a real problem." The normal enterprise approach is to spend the first 3 months arguing over the processes and how you want to change the software to fit your processes.
