  15. 15. Product TechnologyThis group of criteria defines the technical architecture of the product as well as the technological environment in which the productcan run successfully. Criteria include product and application architecture, software usability and administration, platform anddatabase support, application standards support, communications and protocol support and integration capabilities. Relative to theother evaluation criteria, best practice selections place a lower relative importance on the product technology criterion. Thisapparently lower importance is deceptive because the product technology usually houses the majority of the selectingorganizations mandatory criteria, which generally include server, client, protocol and database support, application scalability, andother architectural capabilities. The definition of mandatory criteria within this set often allows the client to quickly narrow the longlist of potential vendors to a short list of applicable solutions that pass muster relative to the most basic mandatory selection criteria.Product Technology Module RatingsProduct Technology Product Technology Dynamics AX JD Edwards SAP Business EnterpriseOne All-in-One Module by Microsoft by Oracle by SAP Total Criteria Module Rating Module Rating Module RatingArchitecture 256 95.70 93.43 14.65Includes: Application Security,ArchitecturalFoundation,Data Integration Technologies,DeviceInterfaces,Messaging Protocols,MultisiteManagement,Organizational Structure,WebEnablementUser Interface 7 95.71 100.00 0.00Includes: User ConfigurabilityPlatforms 33 25.00 70.37 12.31Includes: Database,Server OS,Workstation OSApplication Tools 21 95.50 100.00 25.00Includes: Application developmenttools,Application management tools,BusinessModel Generation,Process Modeling and UpdatingWorkflow and Document Management 6 95.00 100.00 0.00Includes: Automatic creation of to-do list,Documentmanagement,Electroniccommerce,E-mail,Messaging,WorkflowReporting 4 100.00 100.00 0.00Includes: Active or inactive status,Ad hoc inquirycapability from within the ERP product,Local reportprinting (not centralized printing anddistribution),Reports available online
