Editor's note: DM Review welcomes Sid Adelman as a bimonthly columnist. Sid has decades of experience to share. His columns will focus on the selection of software and services that you need to perform your jobs.

This is my first column on the topic of selecting technology and services. Future columns will recommend a due diligence process to select software, consultants and contractors, outsource IT activities and select enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. The column will address how to determine your high-level requirements for technology and services. Future columns will deal with building and managing the evaluation team, including the stakeholders, the decision-makers and the rest of those pesky folks who either influence or just bother you as you research and make decisions. The column will help you establish selection criteria. Future columns will provide ideas on how to research which vendors and products you want to consider, including the ones you want to immediately eliminate.
