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
Application developers who will be supporting
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
Internal personnel who are experienced in
related technologies (evaluation team).
