How to Determine your Org Strategy

by Robert Desisto  |  May 10, 2013  |  Comments Off on How to Determine your Org Strategy

 An org in the vernacular is a logical instance of data and metadata for a set of users. Selecting single org, multi org or a combination remains a key decision that will improve the effectiveness of projects for which business application managers are responsible.  In a research note I recently published, How to Manage Orgs for Optimal Benefit, I provide a framework business application managers can use to determine the most optimial Org strategy for their organization

When looking at my customer inquiries in the past year, org structures are in the top 3 questions I recieve for clients about to embark on a project. project managers must determine how many orgs they should use in their projects. An org unit is bound by both capacity limits (number of users and storage) and execution computing resources (query sizes and API limits). The specific limitations will be determined by the specific offering and edition. Therefore, making an incorrect decsion will have impact on the success on a project.
