Custom Software Development is dead. Long Live to Custom Software Development.
Two facts play against custom software development:
- The market is full of comprehensive software solutions such as Oracle, SAP, IBM, Salesforce, etc.
- Horror stories are on the side of major software development projects
Considering these facts, over the years companies have chosen to install commercial software solutions (CRM, ERP, accounting software, loan management system, etc.) instead of custom software development. And in many cases, they replaced a “home” application whose technology was obsolete.
Of course, a lot of time and effort has gone into tailoring these business solutions to “your” reality to turn into customized solutions that really meet your needs. If you encounter one of the two situations below, rest assured, you are not the only one in this situation:
- You have different systems that do not talk to each other
- You still have specific business needs that are not met by your commercial software solutions
