Every year, as summer is shining its last rays on us, September brings a sense of new beginnings to our lives: new school year, new season. However, for Müncheners and beer lovers around the globe, September goes beyond the promise of new beginnings: it is a sweet reminder that the Octoberfest, the biggest Folkfest to have ever existed is just around the corner. Santa always comes a little early to München in the form of masses of beer, Dirndls, Lederhosen, and memories to last a lifetime. Speaking of Dirndls and Lederhosen – the outfit is often an ominous part of preparing for the Wiesn.
Finding the perfect choice depends on several factors. Before making your decision, you must decide if you prefer a more traditional design or a more contemporary approach. Then you must find the perfect colour, the perfect pattern and of course the size – it needs to fit your unique body, which is no easy task, as we all know. When you finally find the perfect outfit but have change requests to make it fit you just as you had imagined, that’s when life gets tricky. Just like a dress alteration, a change request in a software is no one-size-fits all business. Wouldn’t it be great, if you had a personal tailor, who made all your Dirndl and Lederhosen dreams come true, and made your change requests come to life in a blink of an eye with resources left to spend on the ever so tantalising Wiesn beer?
Fashion and software have one thing common: if you want to take an alternative route and have things your way, it’s going to come at a hefty price. For software, the word bespoke usually signals the golden standard. The goal is to fit your needs, so it serves all the purposes you had in mind. As most things in life, a blessing can also be a curse: we might change our minds as time goes by, so what once seemed like the perfect choice, can easily become a burden or an embarrassment. Unfortunately, the software doesn’t change with you.
