Editor's Note: This episode is sponsored by DXC Technology.

Companies say they want off-the-shelf software, but the reality is that most products can't meet the needs of a sophisticated enterprise without some amount of enhancement. On this episode we assemble a roundtable of experts from DXC Technology to dive into the common challenges and questions around investing in custom software development. Our guests, delivery manager Mindy Waters, enterprise integration expert Keith Honkonen, vice president of software engineering Will Wirtz, and sales director David LaMarre, discuss software requirements definition, roadmap development, and how to build atop off-the-shelf or bridge the gap between solutions.

And they explore why software development fits in more naturally with application modernization efforts than many enterprise or mid-sized organizations might think.   

Show Notes:

  • 2:30 – In what cases should today's enterprise software buyer be thinking about custom development?
