Born out of the necessity to help companies embark on multiple long-term projects, Softura’s Dedicated IT Teams Model allows organizations to maximize their ROI without having to worry about building a team from the ground up. In this post, we’ve outlined the top 5 reasons why our maximizer, the Dedicated IT Services Team, is the best fit for those who need resources for long term software development projects with varying priorities and scope.
1. Access to Out-of-the-Box Teams
Our Dedicated IT Teams Model gives you instantaneous access to full-stack teams. We already have the resources with the required skillsets and experience to form your team. For Small and Mid-Sized Enterprises (SME), our maximizer eliminates the need to have software development capabilities in-house.
Depending on the requirements of the project, you can simply “plug-in” an “out-of-the-box team” that comprises of:
- Project Manager
- Business Analyst
- Scrum Master for Agile Development
- Development Team – UI/UX Engineers, Front End Developers, Back End Developers and Mobile Developers
- Quality Assurance, Testing and Deployment – Test Leads, Automation and Manual Testers and Deployment Engineers
Then when your strategy changes, you can just “plug-out” the team to save on costs.
2. Frugal Operations
Companies incur both fixed and variable costs in recruiting, training and managing teams in-house. Money that can be used as growth capital are often set aside to manage operations.
Our Dedicated IT Teams Model results in direct savings of operational expenses, especially when your core business is not IT or Software Development. Our onshore-offshore blended model provides all the right resources to bring your projects to fruition while keeping the costs down by taking advantage of the variance in salary between domestic and offsite resources with the same skillsets.
3. Focus on Core Competencies
According to a 2019 study by Gartner, in the last four years, “90% of enterprises have experienced a turn that upset normal operations, such as severe operating cost pressures, political upheavals, leadership turnover, and adverse regulatory interventions.” 2020 succeeded in introducing a new turn that has severely affected most enterprises on an unprecedented scale – the COVID-19 global pandemic. The study points out that there are two types of enterprises, ‘fit’ and ‘fragile’.
In the current environment, ‘Fit’ enterprises come out ahead of such turns by focusing on building core competencies while staying agile. By design, the Dedicated IT Teams Model of outsourcing allows you to still pursue long-term growth projects outside of your core business without having to worry about resources when looking to quickly change directions – depending on the outcome.
4. Embark on Growth Projects
Embark on projects that let you cut your teeth on disruptive technologies such as Robotic Process Automation, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). You might have in-house capabilities to develop applications in one of these technologies, but disparate skill requirements will make it difficult for you to simultaneously experiment with projects in all these areas. Simply put, to stay ahead of the competition, you cannot afford to press pause on innovation.
The Dedicated IT Teams Model provides you access to teams that have successfully delivered projects on disruptive technologies. You can define the requirements and as your partner, we will assemble the right team at the shortest possible time. This model works even if the scope of projects is not well-defined or if the projects are experiential in nature.
5. De-risk Operations
Advances in technology happens at a pace which is hard to keep up with. For over 25+ years, Softura has been delivering IT projects for 1000+ clients across industries which helps us understand unique challenges and opportunities in every industry. Our resources continuously work on disruptive technologies which gives us in-depth understanding of the limitations and risks.
When you sign the master services agreement with us for our Dedicated IT Teams, rest assured that we have already identified the risks based on the broad scope of projects you wish to embark on and we have factored in risk mitigation as part of our proposal.
Softura’s Team-As-A-Service (TAAS) is a platform for three models of outcome-based outsourcing: Dedicated Teams, Staff Augmentation, and Software Outsourcing. Each of these models has specific business cases to be discussed over the course of this three-part blog series.
