Build or Buy: Scaling Through Acquisitions and Ownership
time
2:00 PM - 2:30 PM, October 15 (PDT)

SUMMARY

It's one of the age-old questions for engineering leaders: do I build or acquire new technology to grow and scale our business? Whether building software from scratch, or integrating technology built by someone else into your software stack and infrastructure, the journey is typically more complex and costly than expected. What principles, priorities and trade-offs can today's engineering leaders apply to making the build or buy decision? While an acquisition can transform the acquiring company overnight, how can a leader beat the statistical odds when only 50 percent of transactions are successful? And, how can instilling a start-up mindset within a mission-driven engineering culture accelerate the product development cycle? In a conversation led by TechCrunch Editor TBD, Intuit CTO, Marianna Tessel, will draw upon real-world experiences to describe the best practices – and pitfalls – of the build or buy decision.
