Techopedia explains Bake-Off

Forsythe, a technology consulting firm, suggested that a successful technology bake-off requires that participants understand three things about their environment and requirements:

  1. What success is for the organization. This involves setting up measurable, deterministic success criteria for each specific data center environment.
  2. A benchmark for end-user experience in the physical realm.
  3. That all interlocking products that comprise the overall proof-of-concept environment must be correctly configured to ensure that results are meaninful.
