What should be the starting point for IT procurement?
In general, firstly it should be the creation of business requirements. This portion of the process should output requirements, potential value, the future to be created, and the problems to be solved.
The focus is upon calculating the total cost of ownership for a project or initiative. We at Nexus Fusion suggest that too many IT leaders place too much emphasis on the return and not enough on the innovation they need to get out of technology.
Rules of engagement with potential vendors regarding requirements and ROI
Ideally, there should be one point of contact with potential vendors. At the same time, it is essential there is internal alignment across the company as to what is needed before beginning vendor discussions. Nexus Fusion enable customers to navigate their way through the complicated landscape of IT procurement.
How should a decision be made on a vendor?
There is no “best practice” for selecting a vendor. It’s highly variable. And it can be unique to a company or organisation. Nevertheless, we at Nexus Fusion suggest it is important to establish decision-making criteria early in the process. We understand that a vendor decision can be as much a political as a technical question.
With this said, Nexus Fusion has developed and helped organisations deliver better business outcomes in the following areas:
- Price v Quality
- Ability to meet relevant standards
- 5-year total cost of ownership
- Staff time required for project delivery
- Understanding of your business
- Long term corporate vision
- Support & Previous history
- Implementation process
- References & Risk mitigation
