IT Partner Software Delivery Models: The One Thing IT Clients Forget to Check!
When a business engages a technology partner for software development, it is always important to research the experience and skills, to understand the partner’s quality processes and methodologies, to be sure that the agreement includes detailed service levels agreements (SLAs), and to check references but there is one other thing that many businesses forget to check and that is the specifics of delivery models and options.
A comprehensive software delivery model structure will include options for onsite software delivery, offshore software delivery and hybrid software delivery. With flexible delivery models, the business can assure that its requirements are met and that reporting and communication processes, team interaction and project schedules and budgets are suitable for business needs.
Your business isn’t like any other business, nor is your software development project. While there are common factors to every project, each business has its unique needs and your team, your infrastructure, your integration needs, your migration and upgrade needs, your software re-engineering needs…in short, all your needs ARE unique to your business. IT delivery models should accommodate the needs you have for this particular project and possibly for ongoing needs if you have those as well. By providing opportunities for onsite, offshore and hybrid delivery, you can supplement teams with much-needed skills, address resource shortages, achieve your goals in a more timely manner and work in a team environment that is designed to act and react AS a team. The right delivery model and software development partnership can provide resources to work with your team and elevate the results of the entire team and the entire project.
