The Buddha's Approach to Software Selection

Software selection according to Buddha? That's right. Today, we present the enlightening and informative "Eightfold Path to Software Selection". It's full of timeless wisdom—and practical advice—on how to stay on the road to finding the most "righteous" software solution for your company's needs.

So here's a handy buzzword translator to help you understand what a vendor really means when they call their product a "user-friendly, holistic, scalable, cutting edge, full-featured, synergistic, and flexible solution".

Avoiding the major pitfalls of software selection can be as simple as understanding the difference between functions and criteria. Sounds too good to be true? See for yourself—in this straightforward guide to the easy way to select enterprise software.
