Some of this may seem obvious, but when selecting your systems, consider the following:
- Why, where and when?
What is the purpose of the system, will you host or someone else host it and how soon do you need it?
How easy is it to use?
How easily can you modify or add to it? What additional resources might you need and how accessible are they?

How easily can you manage user and registration policies?
If you are developing something new, do you wish to retain intellectual property rights over the software, how can you restrict others from accessing your code?
What are the licencing implications, what happens if the product changes owners or is no longer supported?
Where do you turn to when things go wrong?
