" Offshore development makes business sense
in every way !"
Alliancef has adapted the Offshore Development Center
(ODC) model successfully with several clients. Our dedicated
ODC'S have become an integral part of our clients operation
where a permanent team of engineers having the desired
expertise and experience are allocated to meet the clients’ needs.
By focusing on a single client over an extended time
frame, the dedicated ODC team gains a deeper understanding
of the client’s business and technology and can
begin to function as a virtual extension of the client’s
Alliancef ODC Program Management Structure
We believe that communication between Alliancef's ODC
Management and Client's Off-Shore Project Coordinator
is very critical to the success of any software development
in ODC. A continuous communication link is established
through e-mail, telephone, fax, postal mail, teleconferencing,
personal visits etc. Regular meetings, Status Reporting
and Reviews are held to facilitate ODC communication.
Well-defined procedures after mutual discussions are
laid down for escalation of issues to ensure Issue Resolution
at a maximum efficiency.
Offshore Project Phases
The Off-shore Development Center comes into operation
normally in three phases:
- Initiation Phase
- Support Continuity Phase
Activities in this phase include Initial Planning and
Training.In this phase, service provider's team comprising
of senior member(s) will visit the Client's location.
This team is responsible for collecting information
for doing the initial planning. This activity is normally
completed within 4-6 weeks.
During this Phase, the team starts working on live support
activity under the guidance of the current support team
at the client's site as well as off-site.
Following additional activities take place:
- Setting up any additional infrastructure that has
- Pilot project, if any, is executed. Learning from
the pilot project is incorporated in the process.
- The offshore team and the service provider in general,
take on additional responsibilities.
- Any gaps in documentation or processes are continually
- Review of progress against final goals will be setup.
Support Continuity Phase
Regular support plan is prepared based on the observations
and experience of the Transition phase and is given
to the Client for approval.
The plan includes the following:
- Detailed description of the process
- Project staffing and responsibilities
- Reporting process and escalation procedures
- Quality and service levels
Offshore Outsourcing to India is about quality and
value addition at a reduced cost.
The shift in motivation is already apparent. The fact
that so many companies continue to outsource is proof
of this. Along with the sheer volume of work that is
pouring into the country comes recognition of the talent
and expertise possessed by Indian Service Providers.
In an article featured in COMPUTERWORLD on India's prowess
in the outsourcing domain, several analysts and outsourcing
parties believed that cost was no longer the only reason
why outsourcing to India is an attractive option. Companies
in countries such as Russia and China have begun offering
better rates than Indian companies.
Already many companies are outsourcing with quality
rather than cost in mind. Google's recent announcement
about setting up an R&D center in Bangalore reflects
this new mindset. In an article featured in the E- Commerce
Times, the author comments on Google's hiring practices
as legendary, with the company "...reportedly selecting
only graduates of the nation's top schools to be considered
for employment". The company's move is motivated
by the vast engineering talent pool in India and is not
a cost cutting move. ("Google Eyes India R&D
Facility for 2004", by Keith Regan, E Commerce Times,
December 12, 2003)
