When should you decide to buy custom software? It’s something that will make your everyday work easier, but it’s pretty normal to have doubts before settling on this kind of decision. Luckily, there are tools that let you estimate the costs of an IT system and the risk of your investment.
"How much is THAT going to cost, actually?" This is one of the questions preceding commencement of every project, particularly in IT. If you want to receive an exhaustive answer to it, that is, one that is going to let you decide whether to invest in a given software solutions, you need to prepare yourself well.
You have an idea for a web application, you can imagine how it is supposed to look and work and you "only" need to find a trustworthy partner to turn your vision into a functional tool. So, you verify the competences and experience of various software houses and once you have chosen your favourites, you ask them to provide a price estimate for your project. And here the things get tough.
