ESB SOA RFP Questions I am often asked how to select an ESB and how products in this space compare to each other. Of course one cannot say which products are better than others without the context of the problems to be solved - the requirements. Here is a list of generic Request for Proposal (RFP) or Request for Information (RFI) questions that offer a good start to an RFP specific to your requirements. If nothing else, the answers to these questions will help educate you on the features and functions in the product stacks. In general, you want to prove architectural fit (e.g. how well the ESB will integrate with existing systems and platforms) so be sure to add questions about the critical systems in your environment - e.g. Describe how your system integrates with SAP.

Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) The TGA is planning to implement software to validate, review and process electronic submissions for the entry of registered medicines on to the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) in 2015. Other regulated products are not currently included in the project to implement eCTD submissions. This software will be used for submissions in both electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD) and non eCTD (NeeS) formats. The TGA will not require applicants preparing eCTD submissions to use the same software as the TGA and any software compliant with eCTD 3.2.2 should be acceptable. However, it is expected that applicants will validate all submissions prior to sending them to the TGA.

Standards What is a standard? A standard is a document that provides requirements, specifications, guidelines or characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes and services are fit for their purpose. We published over 21000 International Standards that can be purchased from the ISO store or from our members. What are the benefits of ISO International Standards? ISO International Standards ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality. For business, they are strategic tools that reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors, and increasing productivity.

RFQ RFT RFP RFI - Training in Procurement Processes Clients and newsletter readers have asked that we demystify the meaning behind each of the following procurement terms: RFI, RFQ, RFT and RFP. These processes have steadily grown in popularity in procurement and purchasing, especially amongst larger buying organisations. Sadly proper training is often not given on which process to use and in how to effectively use each process. As a result, in practice you will find these phrases used interchangeably, as many organisations don’t understand the differences sufficiently, resulting in the buyers missing negotiation advantages. We hear procurement or purchasing clients talk about how their departments use these purchasing processes on our purchasing training for buyers to ‘write the rules’ of the buying game, to successfully side-step negotiation. There is a great deal that suppliers can do to improve their position.

Request for proposal The RFP presents preliminary requirements for the commodity or service, and may dictate to varying degrees the exact structure and format of the supplier's response. Effective RFPs typically reflect the strategy and short/long-term business objectives, providing detailed insight upon which suppliers will be able to offer a matching perspective.[3] Similar requests include a request for quotation and a request for information.

Request for information A request for information (RFI) is a standard business process whose purpose is to collect written information about the capabilities of various suppliers. Normally it follows a format that can be used for comparative purposes. An RFI is primarily used to gather information to help make a decision on what steps to take next. RFIs are therefore seldom the final stage and are instead often used in combination with the following: request for proposal (RFP), request for tender (RFT), and request for quotation (RFQ). In addition to gathering basic information, an RFI is often used as a solicitation sent to a broad base of potential suppliers for the purpose of conditioning suppliers' minds, developing strategy, building a database, and preparing for an RFP, RFT, or RFQ.[1]
