What is a "Needs Analysis" and Why Do I Need One?

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Mon, Jun 15, 2009

A Needs Analysis is a documented evaluation of the functions you want your technology to have or the needs you hope the technology will meet. It can be used to prioritize technology purchases to ensure that immediate needs are satisfactorily addressed and that future needs are included in long-term purchasing plans.

More importantly, the Needs Analysis can be used to facilitate crucial communication between end-users and the technical team to ensure implementation of a customized technology solution that delivers the desired functionalities.

Before you commit your company’s resources, let Terrell & Terrell help you document your technology needs and define your specific functional requirements so that you can shop wisely and find the best solution.
