There are various types of user management tools available on the market; from password management, up to full identity and access management suites. The vendors that produce these solutions sometimes overlap features across various products. Issuing an RFI will help narrow down which tools, from which vendors, are best suited for your organization’s environment and situation.
The RFI template will assist you in describing:
- Your existing technology environment
- Business goals
- Business requirements
- Responses expected from vendors
This template is most useful for preparing a list of vendors to include in the RFP phase of the selecting process, and for gaining a better understanding of what the appropriate tools may cost, and how long it will take to implement them.
