Assignment 4: Changing the AIS

Due
Week 10 and worth 320 points

Migrating
to a new accounting information system is not an easy task. Many firms have
struggled with this process, even though our textbook makes the process seem
quite straightforward. Recently, IBM recapped some of the lessons learned in
migrating to a new accounting information system within the federal government.
These lessons can be applied to any accounting information system project.
Others have developed their own recommendations for best practices and lessons
learned involving implementing accounting information systems. However, in
order to appreciate what IBM and others are proposing, we need to apply lessons
learned to a real-life situation involving the failure to implement an
accounting system properly.

For this assignment, research the Internet or
Strayer databases for information related to a real-life accounting information
system failure and best practices, as well as lessons learned from implementing
the accounting system. In addition to information that you may find during your
research, please use the following IBM article to complete the assignment: (http://www.businessofgovernment.org/article/what-we-know-now-lessons-learned-implementing-federal-financial-systems-projects).

Write
a ten to twelve (10-12) page paper in which you:

1.
Identify three
to five (3-5) factors that contributed to the accounting information system
failure within the business that you have identified. Indicate the impact to
the business. Provide support for your rationale.

2.
Assess senior
management responsibility for the failure in question. Specify what the senior
management could have done differently to avoid the failure. Provide support
for your rationale.

3.
Evaluate whether
the most significant failure occurred within the system design, implementation,
or operational phase of the process. Indicate what the company could have done
to avoid the failed outcome. Provide support for your rationale.

4.
Evaluate how
implementing best practices would have reduced the chances for failure. Provide
support for your rationale.

5.
Based on your
research, develop a list of between four (4) and six (6) best practices that
organizations should use today to reduce the chances for failure. Provide
support for your rationale.

6. Using the information provided by IBM and others,
indicate which of the principles designed to provide insight into effective and
efficient strategies on how to best deploy financial management systems, which
were outlined within the related article, should serve as an example of
whatnot to do when
establishing the foundation for a firm to follow.Your proposed foundation should consist of at
least two (2) principles, but no more than six (6). Provide support for your
rationale.

7. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this
assignment.Note:Wikipedia and
similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Your
assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

o
Be typed, double
spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all

o
Include a cover
page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the
professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the
reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

The
specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

o
Analyze the
business activities that comprise an accounting information system to determine
the information needs to support decision-making function.

o
Examine the phases
of the systems development life cycle and key issues related to systems
analysis.

o
Analyze the
systems design, implementation, and operational process.

o Use technology and information resources to
research issues in accounting information systems.

o
Write clearly
and concisely about accounting information systems using proper writing
mechanics.
