Post a total of 3 substantive responses over 2 separate days for full participation. This includes your initial post and 2 replies to other students.

Due Thursday 

Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words:

IT projects can be based on existing, off-the-shelf software that is customized to meet the needs of the project deliverables. Or, IT projects can be built from the ground up, in-house. Imagine you and your colleagues are consultants who have been asked to weigh in on the custom vs. off-the-shelf question at the beginning of an IT project at a Fortune 500 company.

 

 

 

 

What are the benefits of choosing and customizing off-the-shelf software to meet your project’s needs vs. building the entire project in-house.
 

 

What are the drawbacks?
 

 

 

Consider cost, the impact on the in-house team’s development staff, the software’s ability to grow with future project requirements, and how the choice will affect project support and maintenance.
