Every organization has a procurement process. Some of the software products acquired by an organization are COTS (Commercial off The Shelf) Solutions. These products are not built or developed in-house by the organization. While some COTS need to be customized to fit into the client environment, the rest of them only need to be configured according to the organization’s needs. In certain cases, organizations have a team of third-party software consultants working to develop a product on their behalf.
