Best of Breed

In today’s marketplace there are several specialized products catering for specific business function. As each product is trying to extend into other areas, there is a lot of overlap of functionality.
Architectural decisions are
1. Build – Tailor made solution for the business problem
2. Buy – Buy one product – Implement, configure and customize the product for the business needs
3. Buy best of breed products and integrate to provide solution for the business problem

There is a little catch in the option 3. Some times, the technology stacks of these best of the breed products end up incompatible and cause major issues to business after integration. The problem resolution takes generally longer than single product solution.
