There are four types of system development which are as follows;
- Applications developed internally to be marketed commercially to third parties
- Applications developed internally to deploy internally*
- Development by a third party of bespoke software for you.*
- Development by a third party of software sold to your company and others.*
*There is more flexibility internally as support is on hand immediately and the application can be temporary withdrawn without wider ramifications.
Time, cost and quality considerations need to be taken into account and balanced.
