Abstract

A methodology and model is disclosed to identify technologies to address business and IT requirements (e.g. qualification of sales opportunities, identification of solution components). The transition between the requirements of an IT solution and what to use in a solution?s implementation is can be partially automated by the IT Solution Requirements Model. The model represents IT capabilities of technology and products as taxonomies such that they can be used to systematically transform the knowledge of IT requirements into recommendations of technology for use in solution architectures. Efficient association of business and IT requirements to technology and products leads to higher revenue and increased market share.
