Build Vs Buy Analysis

The approach to make or buy decisions consists of the analyses of specific needs to determine if they should be obtained through off-the shelf packages or customized developed solutions. The decision making process assures that services are obtained in a best-value/least overall cost manner and meet the specific operational and management requirements. In some areas, off-the-shelf solutions may meet the needs whereas in certain unique environments a customized solution may be better for the long-term goals of the organization or there could be third hybrid option.

If your organization is looking to changing or implementing a new system, you are aware that there are plenty of options from commercially off the shelf software. The question you should ask yourself is – will this software solution meet all my business needs.

Off-The-Shelf solutions offer a variety of benefits including:

  • Maintenance
  • Proven
  • Cost Savings
