This paper seeks to analyze the relevance of critical success factors along SAP implementation phases. The ASAP implementation methodology is used as the SAP implementation reference model. Applying a process quality management method and the grounded theory method, we derive a matrix of critical success factors versus ASAP processes. Then, we evaluate the(More)
In this paper the problem of the combined selection of COTS components is analyzed in organizations of a specialized nature.

We propose a new method for generating transaction specifications for (view-)updates in relational databases that are guaranteed to preserve integrity constraints. The method augments the relational database with a set of transition and events rules, which explicitly define the insertions and deletions induced by a database update. At database design time,(More)
This paper shows the application of Grounded Theory (GT) method, particularly the Straussian approach to GT, in a research project that studies the role of managers during and after the implementation of an inter-organizational information system (IOIS). We present the steps followed –sampling, data collection, analysis, and literature comparison– paying(More)
