Are you a cowboy riding an ostrich?
If your collection of software applications running your business looks like The Island of Misfit Toys, then it’s worth considering some new alternatives.
Many organizations have decided to use XRM to build a custom solution for their business, rather that creating it from the ground up using custom application development methods.
Could this be a good idea for your business? Here are 7 good reasons that may get you thinking.
One of my favorite toys as a kid was Legos. It was that awesome feeling I got from creating something out of nothing. Usually, I would make some monster truck – it was the late ‘70s, early ‘80s, and Big Foot was a big deal. But I digress. So we weren’t building something out of “nothing”. We were starting with some building blocks that the Lego company provided.
No question there is a lot of thought, planning and precision engineering put into manufacturing those pieces so that they all fit together perfectly. As smart as we were, building a plastic Big Foot replica without those building blocks would have been beyond our ability. So we start with a pile of seemingly unrelated plastic blocks, wheels, people (with and without heads), shrubs, chimneys, car parts, etc. and create something entirely new from the seemingly random pieces. Fun!
