Question: What are IT Deliverables?Answer:
Deliverables are the output or the result of an Information Technology (IT) project.
They may include:
- software; or
- a combination of the above.
Deliverables usually come from a supplier, but often they may be jointly created by a supplier and customer. For example, writing software code may be a collaborative task and involve more than one person. In such circumstances, determining the ownership of intellectual property (IP) may prove to be difficult. It is therefore important to negotiate such ownership before any collaborative work begins. The best time to negotiate the ownership of IP is usually during the forming of the work contract.
