A common dilemma for retail organizations is whether to build or buy (i.e., outsource to a third party) select systems and solutions within their overall tech stack. There are many factors that go into those decisions, including in-house talent and whether skills gaps exist, the ease of integration with an outsourced solution, speed to market, among many other factors. This panel discussion will feature tech decision makers at their respective organizations, who will address the factors that must be considered when making build vs. buy decisions. In addition, the panelists will provide real-world examples from their organizations, offering details on both hits and misses.
