Outsourced Software Development

We provide full lifecycle coverage of software development and deployment on behalf of our valued clients. Our outsourced software services involve building, testing and deploying IT applications and integrating our client's applications by innovative solutions.

The agile manifesto considers the following four important values.

  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Working software product over comprehensive documentation
  • Individuals and interactions over processes and automated tools
  • Responding to changes over following a predetermined plan

Our outsourced software service consists of short delivery cycles with the use of Agile Methodology. Workable software components are released at end of each delivery cycle while the client has full visibility into the progress of the project through regular staging releases, periodic time records and work logs. Our innovative prototype development and prototype testing processes capture client requirements accurately and quickly allowing us to deliver working software in quick turnaround time sometimes within couple of weeks.

How We Work

The representations by the customer (product and business owners) and the consumers (the end users) with the Business Analysts results a prioritized product backlog and a roadmap. Then one by one the broken down features will be developed and tested at the end of each sprint.

At the end of each sprint release, identified errors are reported and fixed during the next sprint. We use professional issues management software to maintain efficiency.

Outsourced Project Team

Core Team

Generally a project team consists of a Tech Lead, Business Analyst, Developers, UI Engineer and a Team Coach. Needs of the customer is identified by the Business Analysts who maintains a consistent communication with the client. The Team Coach removes obstacles, provides guidance and maintains the dialog with the customer on the scope and delivery schedule.

Project Manager (PM) acts as the Team Coach. The PM is accountable for the higher level business scope of the project, that it meets overall business goal of the customer. PM oversees the whole project team and removes any obstacles the team is facing while assists in giving the business perspective to the team and increasing the choices available when faced with crucial decisions.

Business Analyst (BA) is responsible for the requirements and to have the understanding of the priority. To do this the BA maintains consistent communication with the Product Owner of the client. This is usually an ongoing daily dialog by in which facilitates the offshore team to overcome obstacles of physical and cultural distance with the customer. Obstacles of physical and cultural distance an offshore team face can be trounced by the BA. The BA raises the product features and functionality to the project backlog.

Tech Lead (TL) of the project team is responsible for the actual coding of the application. Architecture and the assistance to the developers in interpreting the business requirements with clarity are key team task. The TL represents the development team during technical clarifications. The TL raises the technical requirements of the project to the project backlog.

Developers and UI Engineers are the main thrust of development.
