Custom software development

Custom software development is the process of designing, creating, deploying and maintaining software for a specific set of users, functions or organizations. In contrast to commercial off-the-shelf software (COTS), custom software development aims at a narrowly defined set of requirements.

Custom software development delivers a software product to a single business that is commissioned, created and supported to be in fine tune with organization requirements of the entity where it operates. The logic of choice in favor of customization is quite simple: it can provide a unique mix of flexibility (due to individual design, updates and changes are adjusted to current business needs) and performance boost (as it is targeting the specific problems).
