Initially, EDI provided a Needs Assessment for Maximo System. Business Process Assessments provide a foundation for all process design and improvement efforts. EDI was selected by Sacramento County in the review of its processes, systems and data that helped EDI to understand specific business needs of the County and thus allowed EDI to work in identifying Best Practices that the County could implement with success.
Furthermore, this needs assessment allowed EDI to identify where the County is best served in adapting to new tools and software solutions and identified the organization’s readiness for change and tool adoption. Included in EDI’s assessment methodology were the tasks of Completing Assessment Logistics, Assessment Data Gathering, Creation of Assessment Reports, and Delivery of the Assessment Reports, which are detailed below.
