Build versus Buy
Thus far, we’ve been learning all about building from scratch. Sometimes, you may consult on a project that is so large in scope that it’s more cost-effective to buy an existing solution and customize or adapt it to fit your or your client’s business. Talk about your initial thoughts on each; buy vs build, and if you decide to buy something, what are some considerations for the buy project, and how are they similar to what you’ve already learned about building? What are some things you think might be different?
Your initial post should indicate critical analysis and provide valuable insight into the topic by thoroughly addressing all elements of the discussion prompts, demonstrating your personal knowledge of the topic acquired through your study this week. Students should illustrate strong and precise connections to previous and/or current course content or to real-life situations associated with the readings and research you are encouraged to perform
