Business Challenge
One on the reasons many IT Management deployments fail to meet customer
expectations and have significant cost overruns is that the RFI, RFQ or RFT (RFx) used
to select the solution did not ask the right questions. The questions that were needed
to ensure the solution selected met the business’s requirements, and that the solution
was economical to deploy and support over time.

Vendors’ tendency to use the same terms to describe different technologies across
vastly dissimilar products is a common cause of misunderstanding, making it difficult
for many customers to separate fact and functionality from marketing hype.

The assistance of subject matter experts in the preparation and review of RFx
documents, plus the assistance of specialist IT Management experts in Proof of
Concepts (POC) ensure the solutions selected perform as required, greatly increasing
the chances of a successful IT Management deployment.


Business Need

    decisions regarding product selection.
•   Ensuring business’s know what they are asking for.
