Packaged software (COTS/ERP) implementations makes your business mediocre at best!
The software have a relatively quicker implementation in comparison to custom development. Further, it helps companies to adopt standard industry practices – ‘best practice’. Let’s instead call it a’common practice’.
For instance, by implementing a package solution, your business has the same capabilities as your competitors, who are using similar software.
Does that mean that companies should not invest in COTS/ERP?
Companies should invest in custom development only if there is no suitable packaged software or in a micro-niche—for example, Amazon – on-click, recommendations and Nike app.Tweet
Invest and innovate in your micro-niche and leave everything else to package software to handle.Tweet
