The identification and selection of Information Systems projects is an important activity in most organizations [Hoffer et al., 1999], together with the search for the tool that is best adapted to these requirements, based on the system development process efficiency and the expected effectiveness of its results [Rojas & Pérez, 1995]. Organizations also use Information Systems as a weapon against the competition, insofar as the timely implementation of an Information System could represent a strategy providing competitive advantages to said organizations [Laudon & Laudon, 1996]. Porter [Porter, 1985] stresses that there are specific activities in the company where competitive strategies could be best applied and where it is almost sure that Information Systems will have a strategic impact [Díaz et a., 1998]. According to Pressman [Pressman, 1998], in the context of software development much work has been carried out in an attempt to fulfill automation petitions for different types of software development contexts. Thus, for a long time no thought was given to the possibility of attending themselves, for instance creating supports that would automate software development work. For the purposes of enhancing productivity and software quality, it can therefore be concluded that it is increasingly necessary for analysts and developers to count on automated tools to carry out their job. This paper shows the results obtained of contrasting the analysis carried out for the selection of Case Tools.
