It's a huge decision. When you outsource software development it promises the benefit of cost savings and it adds a tremendous amount of risk. More than half of all companies currently engaged in offshore software development report their initiatives are "not successful". Client preparation, execution and joint vendor planning account for 50% of all failures. So much for blaming the provider-- they only account for 15% of failures. Will you beat the odds? You have a 50-50 chance.
Improve your odds by bringing in the third party expertise of Questcon to assure project value. We help clients make better decisions about what to outsource and how to do it. Whether your strategy includes development, maintenance or both, our services pinpoint what to do and how to do it. Questcon also provides testing and quality services and resources that help companies assure success through an independent expert, with no hidden agendas.
Achieve real cost savings.
Most companies clearly expect to save a lot when outsourcing. Cost savings from executing a successful outsourcing strategy are 10% for most companies. It may surprise you to know that lower labor costs account for a very small percentage of those savings- less than 10%. The vast majority of savings comes from Process Improvement and Vendor Education. That's where Questcon comes in. We assess the situation and provide solid process improvement coupled with unparalleled education and mentoring.
Risk comes from so many angles- what to outsource, provider selection, development process maturity, planning, communication, execution, and ability to measure results, just to name a few. Questcon helps you determine where the chances of risk are greatest, their potential impact and how to mitigate them.
