Detection and analysis of problems in enterprise IT solutions

Veneta Metodieva Markovska


Enterprise IT solutions have turned into a must for every company that needs to grow and compete in contemporary demanding business environment. However the long, successful path of implementing complex IT solutions is not as easy as it seems at first glance – the percentage of failures is still high. In this paper we analyze the use of self-adaptive classification methods for detection and analysis of problems tha may arise during software solution adoption.
