Case Study: Evaluating COTS Products for DoD Information Systems

  • Abstract

    This monograph reports on a DoD program that undertook a detailed evaluation effort that examined several commercial products as candidates for a large information system. While the evaluation effort focused on technical questions, the essential issues faced by the program and the lessons that were learned were more in the sphere of management and programmatic issues, and this monograph is written from that perspective.
