Custom software can be developed to fill a gap in the way information is provided and collected. It holds the promise of simplifying how people work and communicate. It can deliver greater efficiency, greater clarity and invaluable insights into how individuals and systems work (or don’t work). Custom software can be designed to reflect an organisations culture or the nuances of specific industries, compliance environments, of geographies.
‘Why isn’t everyone creating their own custom software?’
Many organisations have gone through the custom software development process, only to find that it hasn’t delivered on its promise. Some have started the process, only to have projects fall over, while others have undergone the scoping process and found it too cost prohibitive.
Why some custom software development projects fail
In almost every case, the failure of custom software development projects can be traced back to the processes that were used to initially define the scope of a project and manage the resource requirements. Without the right processes, critical information is lost in translation, resulting in everyone having a different understanding and expectations of what should and will happen. Important details are overlooked and priorities become confused. If you lack a proper universal development process, it also makes it more difficult for software projects to adapt to changing requirements.
