Hardware & Software Selection
Selecting hardware and software for implementing information system in an organization is a serious and time-consuming process that passes through several phases.
The decision to acquire the computer hardware or software must be handled in the same way as any other business decision. The variety of sized & types of computing resources available puts a burden on the analyst who must select suitable hardware, software services & advice to top management accordingly.
The Information Technology market is packed with a massive array of software, hardware and services that are accessible to most businesses today. However, most business managers do not have the expertise, knowledge, experience and time in analyzing systems features, pros and cons, alternative tools and cost effective solution for Information Technology and business technology advancement. In fact, most of the time, new technology is adopted into an organization using indirect and non qualifying means. For example, someone goes to a trade show, a vendor persuades the client about their services or the business has global or industry appeal. The purchases they make are never evaluated using essential benchmarks and at the end of the day, it does not really address the question if the product or solution is actually the best option for the company’s budget and overall success.
It does not have to end up with more costs and disillusionment. Hardware should be reliable and capable of supporting existing software and adapt to the business requirements for light to heavy usage. It should also last more than the next planning interval, often lasting up to 3 years. The hardware should also be compatible to planned and existing networks. The term hardware covers a large number of different devices and components, such as a computer, monitor, printer, presentation and other equipment.
