Offshore Software Development Needs a Global Delivery Model!
We all hate those products and services that are designed as ‘cookie cutter’ with the assumption that the service provider just KNOWS what you need and will deliver that to you without any consideration for your actual requirements or the fact that your requirements may differ depending on the day, situation or location.
If you are considering offshore technology services like app development, custom software development or other services, you should look for a vendor whose software delivery model is flexible enough to suit your needs now and in the future. A global IT delivery model should include a quality focus with ISO 9001:2015 QMS certified processes designed to deliver results within the prescribed time and budget, and are proven and well tested with many clients, over a period of many years and projects.
You may need Offshore Software Development for targeted projects with finite deadlines, or ongoing maintenance and support projects. The right offshore software delivery model is strategically designed to offer extreme value, rapid response and targeted knowledge and skills. A global delivery model should be structured and founded on industry standards and cutting-edge process and embedded in the Waterfall and Agile methodologies and processes to ensure quality results and outcomes.
There are several types of offshore support, and the service provider you choose should be able to support all of those needs so that you can flex support depending on the project or ongoing need.
Offshore delivery is ideal for clients who do not have enough IT staff for a particular project and require skilled, responsive resources, and cost–effective scalability. This model is also suitable for support, maintenance, or research projects. The Offshore Outsourcing Delivery Model is designed to supply resources quickly and is cost–effective for all budgets.
Onsite delivery is perfect for repetitive or open–ended projects that require close coordination with the client. In this model, the client is assigned one or more dedicated professionals with appropriate skills and knowledge. This team will remain onsite for a particular phase of the project, or for the entire project, as is appropriate to the unique requirements of the client and the nature of the project assignment.
The hybrid delivery model combines the best of both worlds. Elements of the offshore and onsite delivery models are incorporated to provide unique development, programming, project management, support or maintenance services in a way that specifically addresses the client project and needs. The onsite and offshore development team members work collaboratively to ensure that all tasks are performed in a timely and affordable fashion and in a way that provides, quality, value and focus to the client.
