The age old phrase goes something like “stick to what you know.” In general, this refers to people, but it can also pertain to software as well. While from a productivity and order perspective, a one size fits all solution that covered all your operational bases would be perfect, the reality is that the one size fits all solutions frequently aren’t tailored for your specific business and customers are forced then to try to fit their business to the solution.
Here is why. Software developers and vendors create and develop what they know to fit a business need, the core software solution that they know is innovative, effective and solid. They then look to expand into other vertical and horizontal spaces, frequently with multiple languages and environments that must be learned and adapted to. However, the added complexity vendors must deal with to assimilate “fringe” products with their core software solution frequently decreases the “fit” of such fringe products to the customer’s need and flexibility to adapt to different business models. Even assuming the costs of integration, enterprises can achieve a better return on investment selecting software that is tailored for their need rather than trying to change their business to fit a one-size fits all solution.
