Chapter 9 - Evaluating Third-Party Products

Create Evaluation Team

The evaluation team consists of representatives from:

  • Infrastructure support (personnel who are experienced in related technologies or who would be affected by the product implementation).

  • Application developers who will be supporting the application.

  • Business unit champions and end-users.

Locate Potential Vendors

Identifying the vendor offerings that will be evaluated takes place in this phase. The problem is usually too much information as opposed to too little.  The best way to create a potential vendor list is to take a structured view of the marketplace and investigate all avenues to give your evaluation team the best possible chance of finding the alternatives.

A few sources of locating potential vendors follow:

  • Internal personnel who are experienced in related technologies (evaluation team).

  • Industry research groups- Gartner, GIGA, Burton, IDC.

  • Internal research - trade journals and trade shows.

  • Vendors that have existing relationships with your company (i.e. IBM, MSOFT, Oracle, etc.)

  • Internet search engines.
