Gotta Love the Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) Evaluation, Selection, and Qualification Process

From Giovanni Diviacchi:

A friend of mine is going through the COTS process for a combination business policy/rule management software program for his company.

Of three options, the first has a great back end system, very flexible and high-tech enough to meet any requirement challenges, a developer's dream. 

The second has a great front end, colorful, with lots of links to click through, the ability to create tables on the fly, and big icon folders for easy document saving.  The business side loves it. 

The third option is a software program used at the previous two companies where the new Executive Vice President worked.

The office pool has even money on the third option.
