Sven JohansenFor me personally all of the above are relevant, (except comments like virtual environments are very easy to use, but yet very hard to manage, they're not, they're just different and require more than a Windows Skillset) however I traditionally start from where its going to end and so the question is, what is this going to leave behind? What is the legacy of implementing this? If implementing something causes a technology or vendor lock in, massive support costs, proprietary hardware, specific skills training etc, then it is to be given serious deliberation as to whether it is viable option for the business/organisation in the long term. So my most important criteria is legacy followed by Can we do a Proof of Concept for free therefore minimising investment to just engineering time.
it_user209406I agree with all of the above I will add a -no nonsense approach-...a big dose of simplicity--many a software that has a great capability is immediately thrown out by users or Tech guys and cause a tremendous loss of business hours because of its highly Academic approach and fancy wordings. Here are some examples..Yahoo is successful because of its straight forward interface. Google one line search approach is another example..Windows 8 was not successful because of its nonsense interface..VMWare workstation is the best example of a successful Interface...One will not need much support if the software is TIDY..in today s age time is of the essence...Tech people must be able to intuitively navigate and learn on the spot and so are the user .so INTERFACE is KEY followed by what the gentlemen described.
