The wisest choice for IT departments is to make no change when the results of RFP’s don’t yield a clear direction to take
Livingston, NJ (PRWEB) February 21, 2013
ColoAdvisor reported today that the majority of responses to RFP’s (Request for Proposals) in the Colocation and Cloud are inconclusive and cause firms to use older, less efficient methods to deliver IT services to clients and employees. For this reason, ColoAdvisor launched a service that balances the technical, financial, compliance and transitory requirements of a firm into results focused RFP’s that can be sent out to potential vendors.
In speaking about the procurement of Cloud and Colocation services, Shirin Elkoshairi, Principal Consultant at ColoAdvisor stated, “The wisest choice for IT departments is to make no change when the results of RFP’s don’t yield a clear direction to take.” The company’s consultancy service reported that most firms want to make changes but with a multitude of delivery methods for Cloud services it becomes hard to find the best fit.
In addition to the technical portion of an Colocation RFP, purchasing departments need to include lots of content related to compliance, legal matters and financial matters that can sometimes cause the gist of the RFP to veer away from solid technical solutions. Developing strong RFP content that separates the technical from the cost elements of the proposal allows firms to see best-fit providers easier. Additionally, having concise requirements allows firms to quickly understand if vendors truly understand the full extent of what’s in the RFP.
