IntroductionIn attempts to downsize, by adopting a smaller company, we have to carefully evaluateour industry’s current conditions and strategic position. It is our current mission to conduct andevaluate a thorough analysis and to ultimately define and determine what differentiates us fromthe rest of the industry. The main goal is to identify and comprehend whether or not we have acompetitive advantage or just a disadvantage as it relates to the rest of the industry rivals. Custom Development is the particular aspect of information technology that I, mycolleagues, and my partners decide to engage in and generate profit from. Custom softwaredevelopment is the designing of software applications for a specific user or group of users withinan organization. (Goodrich, 2013) Generally, the software is specifically created, customized, orenhanced for the exact needs of that organization or business. Instead of buying, utilizing, orimplementing traditional, “one size fit all” software, many companies do prefer to take extraprecautionary and cautionary measures by having tailor made software that plugs each and everygap they may be experiencing among their organization’s systems. Efficiency and growth aretwo major elements of an organization that custom software development contributes to in apositive manner. Organizations do feel custom development plays a key role in companyeffectiveness, efficiency, personalization, simplicity, and integration. With 2018 half over, thetechnology job market is booming, led by high demand for IT services and custom softwaredevelopment fields responsible for 70% of the 71,800 IT industry jobs added this year. In July, ITservices, custom software development and computer system design added about 8,300 positions
to the 14,500 total IT jobs added in the U.S., according to CompTIA analysis, based on data fromthe Bureau of Labor and Statistic. (Industry Dive, 2019)
