Dependable software plays a central role in any competitive enterprise.
In many cases, an organisation may wish to select a Consumer Off-the-Shelf solution, or ‘COTS’. These offer widely popular features, made to apply to a broad range of companies. An organisation with reduced requirements can expect satisfactory outcomes from a COTS solution. This would prove beneficial to a resource-limited organisation, while providing boilerplate functions.
However, in many cases, a company will require custom features, aligning exclusively with the organisation, and its services. A more dedicated Custom Software solution entails somewhat greater levels of commitment. This results in a more exacting software, which develops alongside the business, and services its goals, unlike generic products.
