Package Selection

One of the deliverables is to fully define the overall environment for the project solution. It evaluates the technical options, describes the proposed architecture for each of the major components, and defines the development, the test and the production environments.

List the outcomes a solution needs to achieve if it is considered to be successful. This needs to list the target result considered when assessing the feasibility and summarises the estimated cost (or effort) and duration of the solution.

If there are significantly different approaches to solution definition, which have a different business value trade-off (eg cost versus risk trade-off), then they should be presented as options clearly showing the trade-off.

We work hard to build relationships with vendors to:

  • Assess reality

  • Measure cost effectiveness

  • We remain focussed on the project objectives

  • We listen to vendors requirements and ensure they engage with us
