Build, Buy, Partner: A Framework for Optimizing Time to Value for Data Initiatives


The decision to build, buy, or partner is pivotal in navigating the complexities of data and technology initiatives.

It’s imperative for leadership to establish a robust framework that carefully weighs the advantages and drawbacks of each approach. This strategic decision-making process is essential for optimizing resource allocation and ensuring scalability. A thoughtful framework also propels the organization toward its overarching goals and enables it to focus on developing and maintaining competitive advantages.
