Configuration vs. Customization

Configuration vs. Customization
June 22, 2017 Discussion and Confusion about the Difference There is a healthy amount of discussion (and an unhealthy amount of confusion) over the difference between configuration and customization where software is concerned. If you are one of our clients (and if you aren't, there's way to fix that), you probably know this already, but we think it is a big enough deal that we thought we'd talk about it more. And we've done a quick 30-min presentation on this same topic. If you've had more than two conversations with me, you'll know that I love analogies.  In fact, my love for analogies is like a simile.
