Wrong tool for the job

Classic examples of how off the shelf software is fundamentally limited to what vendor can understand, and users embodying classic hammering of square peg into round hole.

I have often wondered how much money/time is spent around the world battling business software into half doing something other than business when a bespoke solution would do it out of the box. Odd when you consider the wasted brainpower of who is doing the battling.
