Maintain business domain name intact

There is one thing that organizations must do. They have to register their own domain name, make it final, and afterwards be certain that they are managing it on their own. Digital reputation is increasingly becoming one of, if not there already, the criteria to assess how sound a business fundamental is. Really? Imagine if you caused, or a business keep, changing its own domain name. It is more likely that customers will have a hard time finding what they want to know about how to do business with you. There is much more than just learning the how regardless if a strictly or shabbily regulated business and industry is taken into account.

Single problem in a technology project may break everything

Any leading staff, if not the most responsible individual, in an organization decides if it follows either policy, favorable inclination of end-users to a certain product or service or a direction from management which is different from the views of the others. Then there is the preference of a vendor, if not the only factor that's been considered.  Every proven policy is vague for every new project. Such inclination to a product/service, even a best practice, is detrimental. Such management direction is unhelpful. On top of it all during the acquisition period, no matter the size of a certain, if not just one of the forms in a bigger, project plan, the responsibility within the acquiring organization must be muzzy. Or the responsible individual lacks the role and know-how about the project's practical application and business value, first for the end-users, and the entire organization's operational requirement. This must have been elucidated before bringing in any vendor.
