Why Read This Report

Organizations that want to undergo a digital transformation need strategic partners to help them implement innovative technology and drive process change. Strong partnerships enable agile projects and strategic bets on technology platforms, but finding and nurturing good partners is tough. This report explains which qualities to assess when evaluating technology providers as potential strategic partners and includes a link to a separate downloadable tool that application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals can use as the basis for that assessment. This report is an update of an earlier supplier assessment framework that we published in August 2013.
