In other words describe what was something present in the VistA process that was absent in the pre-Agile SENTINEL system.
2. Describe in detail the most importantsimilarity in how both the VistA system and the successful SENTINEL system were developed. In other words describe something in the environment of both successful implementations.
3. Was there anything really important that you feel was lacking in the way the pre-Agile Sentinel system was developed? Describe what that was and why it was important in detail.
