After an enterprise has built the business case for mobile software, decision-makers must determine the optimal means of acquiring the target solution. This note facilitates the planning process by providing the following:
- A comparison of buying, building, and porting, and an analysis of how they apply to mobile applications.
- Benefits and drawbacks of the three approaches.
- Situations for which each approach is suitable.
- A framework for evaluating existing applications to select the right mobilization approach.
Use Info-Tech's assessment framework to ensure key considerations are factored into the mobilization decision.
