Custom software, often known as bespoke software, suggests customization to a specific user’s needs.
In essence, the custom software development team takes your business’ “measurements” to ensure a “tailor-made” fit in your finished software. Typically, custom software development services occur in-house, or they are outsourced to development teams who use the same techniques as COTS development. When taking on a custom software development project, the development team would progress through the recognizable steps of gathering the client’s requirements, constructing code, testing the software, and delivering a finished product, using Agile, DevOps, or Rapid Application Development.
The product development of custom software involves personalization, modernization, and oversight of applications. Application personalization refers to the modification of commercially available applications to meet specific user and market needs. Managing the sustainability of a custom software application to meet evolving user and market demands requires application modernization. Through application oversight, the software can be effectively installed, updated, optimized for performance and availability, and serviced.
