Our clients need to be familiar with a wide variety of software products in order to develop their long-term IT strategies and plan for procurements. Working on behalf of the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN), we carried out a market analysis to identify an IT system that would enable the FOEN to process and administer its hydrometry and water-quality data. Altogether, our interdisciplinary team of IT and environmental specialists evaluated 21 different products in terms of their technical and professional suitability. We then drafted a report to provide the FOEN with a sound basis for planning further action.
- Collect basic requirements from stakeholders
- Interviews with experts and extensive web research to identify suitable products
