Abstract. Software package selection plays a crucial role in the deployment
of software systems. One of its main current problems is how to deal with the
vast amount of unstructured, incomplete, evolvable and widespread
information that highly increases the risks of taking a wrong decision. It
could be said that nowadays there are not satisfactory solutions to that
problem. In this paper, we propose an approach to systematically tackle these
information quality problems by stating a reference model embracing quality
indicators that facilitate the collection, storage, retrieval, analysis and reuse of
information in a quality assurance environment. We illustrate it with a
scenario of use that shows how this reference model may be used to support
software package selection decision-making.
