Our MUFI Rating and Risk calculation is an estimate of implementation risk and technology risk management. It proposes an enterprise risk management framework and can be thought of an IT risk assessment template.

It is an analysis rate each application by it’s:

  • Maintainability
  • Usability
  • Functionality
  • Implementability

…or it’s “MUFI” rating. We also apply a risk analysis The risk analysis produces a likelihood of implement ability success. One of the largest shortcomings of software selections is that all the applications are treated as having a roughly identical likelihood of success.

Implementation Success Ratio

Our implementation success rate is based upon a combination of the risk profile of the vendor + the risk provides the actual application.

Thisenterprise risk management framework does account for the preparedness of the implementing company or the consulting firm. Most consulting companies misrepresent the knowledge of their consultants to clients. Therefore, the actual risk of implementation projects is normally greatly underestimated. This can be adjusted by a consulting initiative with Brightwork that we describe at the bottom of this page.

For these factors, it is necessary to engage with our services.

Software RiskRethinking Enterprise Software Risk: Controlling the Main Risk Factors on IT Projects

Better Managing Software Risk

The software implementation is risky business and success is not a certainty. But you can reduce risk with the strategies in this book. Undertaking software selection and implementation without approximating the project’s risk is a poor way to make decisions about either projects or software. But that’s the way many companies do business, even though 50 percent of IT implementations are deemed failures.

Finding What Works and What Doesn’t

In this book, you will review the strategies commonly used by most companies for mitigating software project risk–and learn why these plans don’t work–and then acquire practical and realistic strategies that will help you to maximize success on your software implementation.
