What would you ask your MIS's MD?
I'll be at the BETT show next week, and will get a chance to speak to some high level people, so:
If you had 10 mins to talk to the MD / Product Manager of your MIS what would you talk about / ask them?
You can't necessarily waste time talking about problems or unique issues, but what would you want to know?
Some of my initial ideas:
Looking at where we are today is this where you expected to be?
What developments are coming in the future?
Where do you see the market in 5/10/20 years time?
How will new technology be utilised?
How is the development resource / budget split across the various product areas?
Is interoperability between systems high on the agenda?
Which part of the software is developing the most?
What extra areas do you see the company expanding into?
With more and more competition in the market, what makes your MIS the one to choose?
What would you like to know? I've not mentioned any particular MIS to try to avoid any really software specific questions, but if you have them, please post, as some things are very unique.
