Facing A Selection? Try A Knowledge-Based Matchmaker Part 4: User Recommendations


This tutorial identifies the significance of researching technology vendors to both buyers and vendors/VARs. Buyers require research to determine the short list and vendors/VARs can use research to assess the viability of opportunities before committing time and money to a sales effort. Since a 'one-size-fits-all' product is still not a viable solution for most clients, the ability of technology products to meet clients' needs depends on client requirements. The Catch 22 for both buyers and vendors/VARs is to pinpoint the right match in this ongoing 'dating game'.

RFID--A New Technology Set to Explode? Part Two: Early Adopters, Challenges, and User Recommendations
