    Jim observes that the last seven years have seen significant changes in the forecasting software environment, both in terms of computing ability and variety of products. He refers to an article that he and Len Tashman wrote at the turn of the century and presents seven categories of criteria they listed then which could be used to evaluate the existing software. In 2007 he uses these criteria to evaluate innovations in information technology and new forecasting processes and functionality. Finally he suggests there is still room for improvement in present programs and describes the changes he would like to see developed. Copyright International Institute of Forecasters, 2007
