A Product Evaluation Technical Report that compares two current and competing software applications and makes a recommendation for adoption based on the feature comparison only.

technical writing

Description

You will create a Product Evaluation Technical Report that compares two current and competing software applications and makes a recommendation for adoption based on the feature comparison only. Do not consider the cost of the product in your recommendation decision. The true cost is complex and must consider support, implementation, training and other factors. Financial considerations are out of scope for this report.


Assignment Requirements Here's the scenario: Your boss (the CIO), has asked you to investigate 2 software applications, compare their features only, and make a clear recommendation for adoption, based on features (not cost). One application is Open Source and the other is a commercial product. 


Cost issues: comparing the cost of adoption is more complex than comparing the licensing cost of each product. Implementation costs include licensing, support, and conversion. This issue is beyond the scope of this report. The CIO has contacted the Finance Department to compare costs.


You will choose 2 software applications of the same category listed below, and compare their functionality. The applications are suitable for a business setting. You will write a Product Evaluation Technical Report, including executive summary, and your recommendation for adoption. You can choose from the Microsoft Office, Open Office, or LibreOffice applications. You can also compare one of these to the appropriate Apple products, but be careful not to make it a Windows vs. Apple OS comparison as well.
