Effectus White Paper – Creating a Change Ready Culture

As digital technology solutions and vendor expertise continues to mature, managing the deployment of new software solutions becomes less risky from a technology point of view. At a reasonable cost, you can spin up a virtual environment to prove the concept, provide training, and prepare for production release.
