Solution Assurance is a worldwide quality practice. The technical reviews are conducted on opportunities that have IBM hardware and/or software products in the proposed solution. These reviews are referred to as Technical and Delivery Assessments or TDAs. This website provides tools, documentation, and guidance to properly conduct TDAs.
