Over Tolly's 23+ years in independent testing and validation, Tolly has compiled an extensive knowledge base on leading technologies and methods used to benchmark them. The Tolly Common Test Plan series allows anyone to benefit from our years of experience to educate themselves on a given technology and the leading methods used to evaluate and benchmark associated services, products and offerings.
Tolly has solicited input from major vendors of a given technology topic to ensure a fair, unbiased and comprehensive view of a given technology.
Test plans are currently available for licenses by individuals or organizations. If you have any questions or to learn about multiple-test plans/multiple-license discounts, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Tolly Common Test Plans are best practices guides for conducting IT product evaluations and benchmarking. The plans leverage The Tolly Group's years of testing experience and provide detailed test plans for evaluating leading-edge information technology products. In addition, The Tolly Group has invited vendor technology experts to review and comment on the plans.
The test plans are currently in use by both IT professionals and IT vendors around the world. Ultimately, the purpose of the Common Test Plan program is to reduce the amount of time and effort expended by end users in the RFP and product acquisition process.

to the evaluation and benchmarking process.
To assist in the collaborative development process, Tolly maintains a site devoted to working with those providing input to test plans and updating IT professionals
on updates and status of test plans.
