Should you buy a research management system, or build your own?

Building a research management system is more complex than you might expect.

If you’re looking to improve operational efficiency, research management technology is vital – but it comes at a price. So why not build your own solution? As it turns out, there’s much more to total cost of ownership than you’d think. Of our clients who built or started to build their own solution, 80% returned to eVestment Research Management when hit with these realities.
