Case Studies

You can find a number of COMIT case studies in PDF format below. There are two forms of case study, "full" and "summary". Full case studies include more detail about process changes, costs and actual return on investment. Summary case studies give a single page overview of the implementation with the main benefits outlined. To understand where case studies come from see demonstration projects.

 

Please note that these case studies are provided for PERSONAL STUDY ONLY. Please respect our copyright and the copyright of the document's contributors with regard to all images and other content. In particular no part of the case studies may be reproduced in any other form or context without COMIT's explicit permission. You may copy them and pass them on to other parties for educational purposes provided that they are unaltered and passed on in their entirety and that no charge is made to any party for doing so.

 

Some of the case studies on this page date back to 2004. What is sobering is that while the technologies involved have improved dramatically since that time, the problems they describe have remained very much the same.
