Outsourcing Delivery Models in IT

When it comes to outsourcing there are few delivery models you can rely on. The delivery model will depend on more you – the client. It depends on your commitment term, risk tolerance and requirements and strategy.

The offshore software delivery model is preferred when the project is well planned in advance with a well defined project plan. The offshore model can be effective for both short term application development with clearly defined objectives and for long term projects having the scope of multiple iterations till the scope is finalized.

Onsite program managers co-ordinate regular meetings with client and the offshore development team. For low cost projects there can be offsite program managers who are located offshore and communicate regularly through telephone, video Conferencing, email, fax etc. with scheduled visit to the onsite location.

Onsite Delivery Model

The Onsite delivery model is best suited when there is a need of a specific resource type, higher degree of interaction for complex solutions and time sensitive implementations. your partner can help your organization with all types of on-site requirements including the need for specialized consultants, project management or application development.

Hybrid Delivery Model

Hybrid Delivery Model provides viable IT solutions with appropriate onsite and offshore resources to support multiple phases for mid to long term projects. Having the benefits of both worlds this model is best suited for delivering a robust solution with optimized cost and efficiency. Onsite team will directly interact with the clients and will do requirement studies, design and development etc. as per the requirement. Hybrid Delivery model has tremendous operational benefits and scope for scalability. Costs and implementation time will be radically reduced with additional support from our offshore outsourcing team.

ODC Partnership Model

ODC Partnership Model is best suited for customers seeking long term services. In this model there is a dedicated offshore development team comprised of project managers, analysts, developers and testers with specialized skills in specific technical and vertical areas. This helps our client to build a long term sustainable dynamic support system with the help of your outsourcing partner on ongoing basis to dynamically and effectively address their continuing requirements with specific deadlines.

Joint Venture Models

Here a delivery center is shared with multiple clients. The initial investment is shared between the partners normally the client and local provider. In the IT context, normally its set up in an offshore facility. This approach works for long term commitments. However the client has an opportunity to turn a cost center into a profit center by sharing the rewards and risks with the local outsourcing partner.
