If given a choice between a packaged solution and building one, which would you choose, and why?

Dec 13th, 2014

Choosing a packaged solution can provide very real benefits, including:

  • The package can add structure to a poor business process. If the solution represents best or common practices, adopting some of those for the sake of using the new software may not be all bad.
  • The package may cost less than an in-house solution. The costs of development and maintenance are spread over many users.
  • The package may be of higher quality. Obviously, this is not a given. However, with more users banging on the system, errors may have been found and corrected before you install it.
  • You may be able to implement faster. Since the coding has already been done, you may be able to go live sooner than if you developed a solution from scratch.
