“Do more with less.” It sounds good. But how do you


actually do it? Here are eight questions to ask when you’re
evaluating your technology choices.

Is it proven and sustainable?


Look for mature technology that others are using. A critical mass
suggests long-term viability. Look at the development cycle, bug fixes,
and the direction of the industry.

Does it adhere to open standards?


Open standards — transparency in your technology—ensure interoperabil-
ity for everyone, and they open up your choices for the future.

will it scale to meet your needs?


is it predictable?
You need technology that doesn’t just fit the bill today but scales upward
and lets you forecast what you’ll need tomorrow.

IS IT EASY TO MANAGE?
Make sure you can easily manage the technology with your current
resources. Consider how scaling will affect the manageability.

WIll it work with what you


are currently running?
Find out if there are APIs and specs available. Evaluate how it will
integrate with other systems.

WHAT TYPE OF SUPPORT IS OFFERED?


Evaluate the quality and breadth of support, given both your current
and future needs.

IS IT EXTENSIBLE?
Are you reliant on the vendor for features? You need an architecture
that will let the technology evolve to meet unanticipated needs.

CAN YOU HAVE A LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIP


WITH THE VENDOR?
Confidence in your vendor is a must. Work with someone who is flexible
and understands your needs.

Good planning equals future success. And open source technology from Red Hat

J. Nick Otto is the Senior Director of IT for Red Hat. He's run both the infrastruc-
ture and the application side. And before that, he was a customer.

“When evaluating a technology, I make sure I know if


I'm just doing a bolt-on quick fix, or if it is going to
become part of my infrastructure. Open standards are
key. I don't want the business building on something
that I can't sustain and manage for the long-term.”

Red Hat offers a complete platform of flexible, modular products
that allow you to boost operational efficiency by eliminating
complexity and waste from your infrastructure. By standardizing
on Red Hat, you’re building on a foundation upon which practically
any application can be more rapidly developed and transparently
debugged. Based on open standards, our interoperable-by-design
frameworks lets you create a versatile, customizable workhorse stack
that can scale up, scale out or virtualize according to your needs.

This means more good options today and tomorrow,


but that means your most frustrating days are probably behind you.
