Use the
power of cloud

Making the correct choice enables
you to quickly respond to the business
challenges around your mission critical activities

Technology Selection

The solution selection service replaces the previous vendor selection service. The key difference is that the solution might not be technology specific or limited to a single vendor (e.g. where multiple cloud solutions are brought together). The solution selection process involves service requirements definition, a managed RFP process, weighted scoring and solution selection.

A proven methodology to rationalise and facilitate vendor selection by taking a focused approach to bring the business and technology together results in decreased effort and increased ROI.

At Qual we take a mature and tested methodology that streamlines the effort required to make the appropriate technology choices for your organisation.

The project initiation aims at allowing both the Client and Qual to agree on the content and process of the SOW and thus launch the project.

RFP Development, Distribution and Vendors Rating

In parallel to reference architecture development, RFP technical content is developed in question format and is reviewed with the client team. The content is then incorporated into final RFP format for distribution, either using a client RFP template, a Qual template, or a client RFP distribution system.

Project Closure

The final project week includes vendor interviews, analysis, and recommendations.
