Buy vs Build


Buy versus build judge yourself! I would think xRM as a way of accelerate application development.

















 


Costs


Benefits


Buy (xRM)


Locked to vendor


Locked to vender schedules


Customizations to fill GAPs (if any)


Licenses


 


 


Configuration more than development


Faster go to market


Use vender enhancements


“Standard”


Shop GAP’s as modules or vertical solutions


Build (.Net or any other langauges)


Expensive


Longer delivery cycles


Harder to rapidly change


Innovation


Tailor application bit by bit


Re-use existing infrastructure


Better control over developer process

    This is a very vage view, I fear…

    If you habe to integrate the software in your existing enviroment, and you have to touch EVERY field (for exact length-limitations or checking for the right   content, and have to build an interface and so on and so on), buying is MUCH more expensive !

    So better look for a better framework with much less limitations than you have with a bought product.
