Commodity Software, Best Practice and Competitive Advantage


Can industry-leading practice be found in a commodity software package? If we accept that application software is a commodity, by definition, the answer is no. If a vendor claims industry-leading practice, then it is available to your competition. If we really want to have practices that lift us above the competition, it cannot be in a standard package.
