Let us help you develop and define requirements and success criteria that will be used to evaluate the technology and ensure it is the right product for your organization
There are many products and solutions available to solve a variety of challenges that IT organizations are facing to securely and effectively enable the business. Navigating this can be challenging and overwhelming to organizations that have a shortage of resources, facilities, and deep product knowledge to effectively evaluate multiple products and to make the best decision. The inability to conduct the proper level of testing and validation needed to make this decision often leads to not making the right product decision, not utilizing the product to its fullest potential, and can lead to products being purchased and become ‘shelfware’.
Fishtech has developed a comprehensive Proof of Concept (“POC”) service engagement to provide a comprehensive validation of select technologies. Fishtech works with you to develop and define requirements and success criteria that will be used to evaluate the technology and ensure it is the right product for your organization. This approach provides you the due diligence needed to make an informed decision prior to selecting a product to purchase.
Fishtech provides a phased approach to achieve the desired outcome. During the requirements phase, Fishtech will make recommendations on what the best technology(s) are to evaluate and develop a requirements matrix for properly evaluating the technology to determine which technology will best fit your needs. During these engagements Fishtech will also assist with a high-level roadmap for deploying the selected technology. The following phases below are what is comprised in a POC engagement:
Phase 1 – Customer Success
• Agreement on project scope and timeline
Phase 2 – Success Criteria
• Develop requirements and success criteria
• Determine the best technology and vendors to POC
Phase 3- POC Setup
• Prepare LAB and setup vendors for testing
Phase 4 – POC Evaluation
• Perform testing and run through use cases
Phase 5- Documentation
• Executive Summary
• Scoring matrix
• Use Cases
Giving you a high level implementation roadmap for the correctly selected technology.
