How do I choose new Cloud or Application Software?

Written by Kathy Labozzetta, Partner

I would like to share some relatively simple but important rules on how to start looking for New Cloud or Application Software in the New Year:

Whatever the justification, make sure goals are clearly documented and defined including criteria for success.
