Our project sponsor, the London Borough of Merton, is in the process of creating a new information system. The municipality consists of five departments that utilise over seventy databases and over thirty database programs. The Borough's current information system contains duplicate data and is expensive to maintain. The goal of our project was to assess the Borough's current system using surveys and interviews of its employees. These data were used to create a needs analysis for the Borough of Merton that provided recommendations for making future decisions about improving their information system.
