Should I buy or build a mobile App for my business?

buy vs buildWhen it comes to rolling out a mobile business process solution, there’s no bigger question asked by enterprises than whether to buy or build. Should they buy an out-of-the-box mobile solution for their on-the-go workflow needs, or should they build an in-house proprietary App for mobilization?

Fortunately, IT professionals and other enterprise decision-makers can consult a free resource: Buy vs Build – Answering the mobile solution enterprise dilemma.

In this white paper, readers can examine the pros and cons, as well as the ROI of both buying and building a mobile solution such as ProntoForms.

Featuring an independent expert and anecdotal scenarios, Buy vs Build is a valuable resource for enterprise management to review in order to make an informed decision on how best to mobilize a workforce.

From Buy vs Build, the description of the independent expert:

Steven Woodward is a leading international expert in ICT estimation and cloud computing governance. He has over 20 years experience in software estimation, benchmarking, valuation and governance. A Certified Function Point Specialist since 1994, and a Certified Software Quality Analyst since 1995, Woodward was asked to independently analyze buy versus build scenarios.
