IT Cadre's Trusted Insight®


Build Vs. Buy
Josh Martin, Senior Director Software Engineering
Josh Martin

"Build vs. Buy". Many believe the decision is settled: always buy. Whether software-as-a-service (SaaS) or the older term commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS), organizations increasingly rely on commercially available software to meet its need.

This has been largely positive. One-off solutions involving workflow, collaboration, or case management are migrating to SaaS. Newer offerings in data platforms, decision augmentation, and robotic process automation (RPA) continue to reduce the need to custom build. However, if the decision to buy is made, a follow-up question is in order - will your buy really become a build?

Too often, organizations purchase a solution that is a poor fit. They spend years customizing the software to fit unique processes and missions, resulting in software that must be maintained outside of commercial releases. The benefits of the "buy" are gone, and many projects end up being shelved.

So yes, continue to buy. But if you can't really buy due to the amount of customization, consider building using enabling technologies that can be maintained in a flexible, fast and affordable manner. This is especially true for critical areas of your organization that are unlike any other in the world.

In the Community


Making a Difference

IT Cadre’s Community Outreach’s mission is to improve our community by making a difference in someone’s life.

IT Cadre applies the values of vision, innovation and leadership to the work we do in the community. Our outreach efforts include giving but more importantly participating and leading in support of community programs.

IT Cadre holds a special place for our armed forces, with many members of our team having served our country in various ways. We understand the extreme sacrifices both soldiers and their families make to keep our nation safe. We are dedicated to support the programs that benefit military service members and their families. We do everything we can to ensure the men and women that keep our nation safe and protect our freedom get the assistance and support they so greatly deserve.

IT Cadre also supports the children in our community through active involvement in student mentorship programs, local educational needs, childhood disease research, and family support programs.
