What is a dedicated software development team?

Simply put, a dedicated development team is just like a branch of your internal software development department, only it is not co-located. This extension to your own software development team gives you access to extra technical talent AND lets you adapt your workforce on-the-fly to changing needs.

You can choose to manage the dedicated team yourself, have it managed locally by our Engagement Managers, or take a mixed approach, delegating certain management functions nearshore, while retaining other with your internal team.

Least impact approach

When defining the operational and the governance models, we use both our and your existing models and processes, combining and tailoring them to best answer to our specific collaboration context. We may adopt one of our models but we are also open to adopt your own processes, reducing the impact on your current operations. We are always open to improve our processes and we know that there is always place for improvement. And we also learned that there is no single model that will fit all contexts but you always have to tailor your processes to every specific context.

A dedicated software development team is first built based on your current needs. We then monitor together with you how well it responds to your evolving needs. Changes might trigger ramp-ups or decreases in the number of nearshore developers, both of which we can easily accommodate. At the same time, we train the dedicated team members on any new required technology or even replace them with people with the new required skill-set.
