Custom Application Development
Custom application development is the designing of software applications for a specific user or group of users within an organization. This custom software is designed to address specific needs within an organization as opposed to more traditional, standard software used by the masses.
Custom software development is the process of designing, creating, deploying and maintaining software for a specific set of users, functions or organizations. In contrast to commercial off-the-shelf software (COTS), custom software development aims at a narrowly defined set of requirements. COTS targets a broad set of requirements, allowing it to be packaged and commercially marketed and distributed.
