License Asset Manager vs. Do It Yourself or Home-grown Solutions for License Monitoring
The issue of make vs. buy is one each company needs to carefully consider. Virtually anything can be made given enough time, money, and expertise. A company needs to choose a core-competency and focus on that. Building tools is not core competency unless your business is tool development. Wasting time and money to build software tools, when inexpensive state-of-the-art tools are available just doesn’t make sense. Justification based on “keeping people busy” doesn’t make sense either. People should be employed in efforts focused on your core competency.
