The development of software and systems requires business organizations to consider a multitude of variables that influence whether to design and implement software systems in-house or whether to use some type of service provider, of which there are many types from which to choose, outside the business organization. Although vastly simplifying the concept, the considerations can be split among two overarching options: build and buy. For this discussion, outline variables or factors that influence business organizations when determining whether to design and implement software systems in-house (build) or design and implement software systems using one or more third-party service providers (buy). Include pros and cons for both the build and buy decision. In your response post(s), enhance your peer’s posts by adding additional pros/cons or additional insight not captured in their response.
- Flesh out your thoughts and interact with your classmates. Try to post your initial response by Wednesday each week and then return on a couple of other days to see what’s going on with the discussions. The more you interact, the more you learn from your peers, and the more you share with them about what you know. You’ll also be showing your instructor what you’ve picked up.
