This paper explores the design and development considerations inherent in the production and deployment of a web-based programme management coordination tool (PMCT) that has been built on a native XML database (NXD). In selecting a small to medium sized enterprise (SME) as a target, specific problems had to be addressed. These practical issues are highlighted along with assessments and analysis of the suitability of the NXD chosen for the function. The paper offers suggestions relating to the cause and effect of underlying trends currently affecting SME’s within the telecommunications sector, and it shows how the management tools and the technologies that they might employ to derive benefit, need careful alignment with the purpose to be effective.
