1.1.5 Evaluate alternative installation processes

You need to be aware of methods of implantation.

Parallel running:
You have a new system but you also run the old system while updating the features eventually getting rid of the old system.
Pilot running:
Taking a small group of people and testing the system with them before implementing it for the whole community.
Direct changeover:
Replace system without testing.
Phased conversion:
Implementing changes over time.
Training session:
Training the users of the new system beforehand with a limited time frame.

The installation process used in these examples are:
Printing at DIS- parallel running, pilot running, training session
Macs – Direct changeover, training session
BYOD – Direct changeover, phase, pilot, parallel, training session.
