Software Evaluation

Clients are often faced with the difficult choice of continuing to invest in older application software that has been in use for years, or considering the replacement of that application with a more modern solution. Marathon can assist in this decision in a very effective manner.

Marathon executes a repeatable, quantifiable approach to meeting this challenge. The approach is based on a comprehensive evaluation of the application in question, resulting in an objective assessment of the pros and cons of each alternative. One of the chief benefits of this approach is the establishment of expectations concerning the alternatives. With this picture, the client has a clear view of which course offers the organization the optimum solution.

During the course of the evaluation, Marathon gathers information on such application characteristics as:

  • Stability
  • Flexibility
  • Support costs
  • Scalability
  • Database integrity
  • Data accessibility

When the evaluation is complete, the client has a clear picture of the competing alternatives and which option will bring the most benefit to the organization.
