Leaving Behind the ‘Build Vs. Buy’ Debate: It’s Time for ‘Best of Both’
In the world of Process Automation, both – ‘Point Solutions’ and ‘Build from Scratch’ have their own merits and demerits. Until now, either – ‘Point Solutions’ or ‘Build from Scratch’ has never been ‘fit for all needs’ of enterprises. It was quite pervasive that one’s personal preference of one option over another was the quantum frustration that arises from either of the options whichever is tasted first.
For example, if ‘Point Solution’ for any organization was is doing well on the parameters such as speed of implementation, ‘hardwired-ness’, accomodation of frequent ‘change-requests’ and ‘limited use cases’, and so on then the quantum of frustration increases with ‘Point Solution’ and this eventually leads to switch-over to the other option – ‘Build from Scratch’.
But, the plight never ends here with ‘Build from Scratch’. Even this solution also ends up with Huge Cost, Longer Delivery Time, Lower Stability, and gradually decreasing Flexibility over a period of time.
And, the debate starts here. Actually, when either merits of these options or demerits are compared against each other or sometimes taribbally – merit vs. demerits of one against another.
Ending the Debate
While the debate is still continued and the problem is still persistent as the fact remains that organizations cannot do away with either of them unless there is a new solution.
Means, the desirable solution basically requires the characteristics such as Faster Implementations, Higher Flexibility, Low Code, Higher Stability and so on.
And proudly, with Servosys’s Business Process Management Suite (BPMS) – enterprises are able to get rid of this debate.
Now the old debate of ‘Build vs. Buy’ has completely lost its relevance as the product suite from Servosys has delivered the best of both these extremely different approaches.
Additionally, Servosys is not only faster in meeting the change request requirements, but is also the fastest implementer.
In Nutshell: Amid Covid-19 global pandemic, business enterprises and banks across the economy have become more sensitive about the ‘speed of implementation’ and ‘flexibility of change’ of their software solutions, particularly where workflows are part of their business solutions. Traditionally, people used to address such challenges through – ‘Point Solutions’ or ‘Build from Scratch’. But, these two systems have never been the ideal solution to fulfill the need of business process automation. And, thereby – the third option introduced by Servosys – which combines BPMS and RPA (or Business Process Management Suite and Robotic Process Automation) remarkably transformed the business processes of many banks and non-banks.
