Main Day 1: Tuesday 25th April 2017

12:05 PM OXFORD STYLE DEBATE: Buying off the shelf is more cost effective and efficient than building an in-house system- for and against

Against- by developing an  in-house system  you have complete oversight on how the technology complies and fits into budget
Against- when developing in house, you have complete ownership of your data
For- with the growing number of innovative and effective platforms and bolts on in the market, it’s cheaper and more time efficient to outsource
For- with such advanced analytical tools now available, it’s very easy to evaluate outsourced products to see whether they fit and work into current processes for the business?

(Secure your front row seat as the conference room becomes a battlefield. Witness four industry experts (two for and two against fight their corner on this topic. Who will deliver the knockout argument to claim victory? Take your place and vote live.)
