If you want to get a preview of what I'll be talking about next week, take a look on my main blog at the post "To open source or not".

The talk will be based around these 5 rules - but with further examples.

I like the simplicity of your "software procurement rulebook", Mark, and I'm looking forward to your session. Your five rules are good commonsense, but that does not mean they are obvious to all!
Rule 1: Will it do what you want it to do?
Rule 2: Will it fit?
Rule 3: Work out what it will cost
Rule 4: Will I be able to get help?
Rule 5: Is it sustainable?
Rule 3 is interesting because there is certainly a perception that Open Source = free, but that may not be the case at all!
