  1. Framework for decision making
  2. buy vs build vs partner
  3. a key element inn your portfolio management approach


How do you codify key decisions for your teams on what delivery option to take for new applications and services? This document describes in detail an analysis framework and approach to how organisations can make key decisions when they are seeking buying or building solution options. With the range of various solution option proliferating post the advent of cloud and SaaS organisations often struggle to make the decision on what applications they should build them selves and what they should be buying from a vendor.

This framework also adds into the decision framework options and consideration of partnering. Not partnering just for the realisation of the application but partnering in the intellectual property sense.

The framework can be used in a stepwise process taking firstly in to account the most important criteria and then adding in additional criteria that can be optional. We have presented our views within the document of how the framework criteria can influence the outcome logic but we advise practitioners that it is the discussion around the criteria and the localisation of your own priorities that will lead you to the right option and not just following our opinion.
