When you've chosen whether to build or buy, you then need to integrate
When it comes to building or buying software, the decision is just the beginning of the journey. How do you integrate this great new product, built or bought, into your existing infrastructure to successfully complement your existing processes?
And perhaps most importantly - what’s involved in the maintenance of this product? How do you identify problems early and prevent them from manifesting?
This panel will answer all your integration questions and concerns, leaving you and your systems ready to navigate the next chapter in your build vs buy journey.
- Outline the path to seamless integration of your new software
- Identify possible problems early to avoid roadblocks
- Problem-solving along the way
- Maintain your new system effectively
This panel is part of Build vs Buy month
We have multiple panel discussions throughout June that dive into the ‘build vs buy’ dilemma, to help engineering leaders tackle one of the most common, but tricky, challenges.
Each panel will bring you learnings and examples that consider not only the risks, costs, and benefits of each decision but also practical insight on how you can set you and your team up for success for both building and buying your perfect solution.
