Why Organizations Commission Software Development

Software-Development-1One-size-fits-all Vs. bespoke development

‘Bespoke’ is an expression originating from the tailoring and dressmaking industry. Bespoke garments were those clothes exclusively made for you, or 'spoken for’. Bespoke tailoring requires high levels of skill and craftsmanship, stands for the ultimate in luxury and quality, and is also an acknowledgment of your individuality and uniqueness as a customer. Since those days of custom tailoring the term bespoke has been adopted across many industries, to describe custom-made solutions and services.

‘Bespoke’, or, ‘custom’ software is software that is the opposite of one-size-fits all – software that meets the specific and unique requirements of an organization. What was once your highly skilled and respect tailor, is now your friendly and resourceful software engineer.

Why do organizations have custom software developed?

Every organization is unique and has distinctive requirements, preferences, processes and objectives. There are many steps in their work and business activities that may require to be automated with software. In many cases though off-the-shelf solutions or traditional ERP systems don’t fit these unique requirements or are expensive to implement.

Managers need to get their organizations to work smarter, not harder, and this is where the benefits of intelligently designed software solutions come into play. With an off-the-shelf, standard software package, it’s often difficult to achieve the level of fit and intelligence that unique requirements and processes demand. It’s also unlikely that a standard solution can be customized to the degree required to unleash the diverse and specific benefits sought.

Giving Managers The Clarity

... to make sound software decisions.

Bill-Gates-QuoteHowever, when confronted with a need for automating a particular process with software, managers are faced with many questions:

  • Do we really need software for this situation?
  • Is it feasible and affordable to introduce the solution?
  • Is there actually a technical solution to my requirement?
  • Is there a standard solution or do we need to have software custom developed?
  • Which interdependencies must be considered?
