When evaluating a product there are various key factors we need to assess such as:
- Does it solve my particular problem.
- Is it easy to use.
- Does it have the set of features and capabilities that I need.
- Will it continue to meet my needs as I become more adept.
- Does it include good documentation.
- Will it save me time (will I be more productive).
- Is it worth the cost (both financial and time to learn & use).
- Is it robust and well supported.
