Chapter 9 - Evaluating Third-Party Products

Obtain Business Unit and IT Management Commitment

Obtain business unit and IT management commitment on the evaluation process, selection process and possible implementation by providing the following information:

  • Reasons why you are performing the evaluation (What business problem are you trying to solve?)

  • How the product solves the business problem.

  • What you intend to test.

  • Time and cost estimates for product selection, implementation and on-going support  (Is the solution worth the cost?)

Create Evaluation Team

The evaluation team is created in this phase. For products that do not have a wide impact and are relatively inexpensive, the evaluation team will consist of a few select individuals. But for products that have a wide impact or are expensive, it is prudent to involve a larger group, some with a technical background, others with a user perspective. Wide representation and diverse viewpoints early in the decision process produce better decisions and fewer surprises later. It is imperative to include all those affected:  IT personnel who will be supporting the product, IT groups affected by its usage and end-users. Team leaders are also identified during this phase.
