Here you go:


1) Single Vendor

-Easy to work with single point of contact

-Training and man hours are miminal because people are used to the system

-Reduces cost by having a single solution


-Replacement costs can run high

-Maybe become legacy

-Maintenaince costs are usually higher and upfront costs are large as well


2) Best Breed Systems:

-Mulitple vendor for the best solutions

-lower costs because the systems don't need to be replaced at the same time


-requires significant intergration

-Costs extra for cross training on multiple solutions

-Multiple vendors differently level of support


I hope this helps,
