    I am a custom software, so I need to learn more about this. So please give me more information.


    Generic software development is the one done for “General Purpose” audience whist “Custom Software Development” is done to satisfy a particular need of a particular client. General Purpose software development is tough as compared with Custom made; not by the skills required to develop the application but by the design and marketing point of view.In General Purpose application/product design and development, you will need to “imagine” what an end-user require. Here, the term “end – user” has no face; you have to imagine it. Market Surveys and general Customer Demand analysis may help a company to reduce the risk factor and think about some innovations over existing similar solutions.On the other hand, in Custom Made application/product development, you have a specific face of “end – user” in front of you. You know whom you need to satisfy. Understanding the need and Analyzing it to get the best out of it is a challenge here. Planning and reaching the goals within deadline adds a value to your software development excellence as a professional service provider.By Buyer’s (or Client’s) point of view, nowadays it’s preferred to have a Custom Made application developed rather than buying a General Purpose software. You get the application done that exactly matches your requirements and also most importantly your style of computing. If you manage to find a quality Freelance Developer (or team) you’re 50% done! If you successfully locate desired talent in Asian countries (such as India) then it’s a bonus; because $1 is still Re.40 here. So, the overall development cost for US and Europian companies is likely to get slashed down by at least 40%. Quality and reliability of Indian Freelance developers might be a suject of debate for US companies, no doubt, the Freelance market is chasing Corportate monapoly quite strong and fast.Omnia Group
