Chapter 9 - Evaluating Third-Party Products

Communicate Results

The results of the evaluation process are communicated during this phase. There are many communication avenues to choose from. A formal evaluation document is created and distributed. Presentations detailing the evaluation process are also given. Before you make your recommendation, be prepared to justify it. The major questions to ask yourself are “Did you choose the best product?”, “Did you keep the level of risk at an acceptable level?” and “Did you achieve these objectives at a reasonable price?”

The documentation provided to business and IT management includes:

  • An executive summary.

  • A detailed description of the vendor chosen.

  • A financial analysis of the chosen vendor.

  • The reasoning behind the vendor’s selection.

  • What other products were evaluated and the reasons why they weren’t selected.

  • An overview of the evaluation process.

  • The metrics used as the basis for evaluation.

  • An overview of the responses to the Request for Information and the Request for Proposal.

  • The benchmark results of all competing products, if any.
