Custom software development is a strategic approach to designing, creating, deploying, and maintaining software that caters to the specific needs of a business or organization. Unlike off-the-shelf software, custom software development is focused on a specific set of requirements, making it highly tailored and flexible to your business processes.

Custom software is ideal for businesses that require unique software solutions that address specific challenges and processes. For example, a manufacturer might need a field service equipment maintenance program, while a bank might require an online banking app that meets the unique needs of its customers.

Custom software development can be performed by in-house development teams or outsourced to a third-party, also known as offshore development. Either way, the same processes and methodologies apply to ensure high-quality development. Custom projects follow the familiar steps of requirements gathering, code construction, testing, and deployment, using popular methodologies like Agile, DevOps, or Rapid Application Development.

Efforts associated with custom software development include application customization, application modernization, and application management. Application customization involves modifying COTS applications to support individual requirements. Application modernization is crucial for maintaining the viability of a business's custom software to meet evolving user and market demands. Application management supports tasks such as installation, updating, performance optimization, and availability optimization, as well as service desk functions.
