A Case Study and Tutorial in Using IT Knowledge Based Tools Part 2: A Tutorial


This tutorial, part 2 of a two part series on Knowledge Based Selection, demonstrates the selection processes and capabilities of Knowledge Based Selection Methods and Tools. These tools, integrated with business decision making procedures, can arguably reduce selection risk and improve chances for success in IT projects.

In this tutorial, we illustrate a number of the procedures for rapid decision processing through the real-life selection of a PDA device.

A Traditional "Local Touch" Leader Espouses a More Global Vision


Rather than pursuing the usual route and writing our opinions and analyses of major market trends and then giving the pertinent vendors a chance for a factual review and feedback, we’ve done the opposite, and have asked different vendors about their opinions and their approaches to market trends.
