Extended Team: Offshore Development Center (ODC) – For Ongoing Development Needs- a virtual extension of your development team
An Offshore Development Center, which is an extension of the client’s software engineering facility, is popular among clients, who are looking at long-term gains from offshore outsourcing. This model best suits the needs of clients who have ongoing development needs. This model ensures that the extended team works as an extension of the client’s team and provides resource flexibility, extensive scalability, cost and time efficiencies, cross trained resources and the ability to adjust to peak loads.
This model incorporates a pool of specialized, multi-disciplinary resources that are organized and managed by Q3 to meet the client’s explicit business objectives. The team is trained for a particular client, while working from Q3′s development center and goes to extra lengths to simulate processes to exacting standards as per the client’s requirements. The Extended Team model is usually applied in long-term partnerships with a significant amount of work. Importantly in complex projects, where it is not advisable to replace the developer during the project.
Project budgeting is pre-decided and fixed for different technologies or level of programmers required and Q3 ensures that the extended team satisfies the project requirements and produces the specified monthly amount of work. Work time of the team is reserved for a client, and he is expected to keep the workload of the team at the agreed specified level.
