Offshore Software Development Quality
Questcon can help you mitigate the risks associated with outsourcing by evaluating the proficiency of offshore software development suppliers through an assessment of key QA, process and test elements. Our experts can also properly prepare you for outsourcing and show you how to maximize savings through solid process improvement and vendor education.
Most organizations are rethinking their offshore strategies. Sure, many companies are reducing IT costs, yet the savings are not as significant as originally expected. And, in many cases the off-shored application has suffered from a reduction in quality. While it may seem easy to blame the offshore provider, the larger role in the quality decline is more often attributed to the client. Ambiguous requirements can derail offshore software development projects much faster than onshore projects due to the inherent communication issues that off-shoring introduces.
