How Dedicated Hiring Is Helping Our Customer From Texas to Scale Their Software Business

Introduction:

As innovation envelops the globe, software companies are expected to rise to the challenge of constant evolution and increasing demand. These companies now lie at the core of all business requirements, ranging across industries, as the basis of providing products, systems, and services that are expected to be instrumental for business success. Software developers need to ensure that their products and services are not only avant-garde but also potentially intelligent and capable of interconnectedness. Here we describe an example of the advantages of hiring a dedicated team of developers toward the achievement of business goals.

Current Challenges Surrounding Software Companies:

With these expectations come certain challenges that software companies must overcome in order to rise above their competitors. The specific technology, which is being developed, is usually the central concern. Every software development company is looking to embed their technologies with the capability to provide better lifecycle management of their software and systems. Regardless of whether the technology is cloud, mobile or analytics, technologies need to be geared to be innovative and delivered promptly in a seemingly competitive environment.

Creating technologies with the strengths as described above requires the company to strike the right balance between their management crew and their developers. The former needs to be given the right mechanism to create an atmosphere that fosters development and innovation from the latter. The administrative team needs to be able to exercise measurement controls and economic governance efficiently, while the developers work to improve their capabilities of automation, development, and innovation. This will increase the company’s output and thereby the outcome for stakeholders alike.

As a result of this balance, the lifecycle of the product will see a considerable improvement. Companies must seek to enhance their development analytics, administrative steering, and regular evaluation and resolution of glitches and uncertainties. Adopting various metrics and automation techniques are critical toward improving the overall performance of the organization. Addressing these needs will signal a considerable reduction of the time involved in the product lifecycle.

The rising demand for high-end technologies translates directly into a high-end system requirement for software companies. Whether it is the seamless integration of workflow, administration, and development or the enhanced quality of product development, IT companies must now rise to the urgent need of overall optimization of functionality. At the core of this requirement, lies the reduction of costs and overheads that will directly improve the quality of output through efficient automation and integration.

In a nutshell, software development companies need to overcome:

 

Our Analysis and Roadmap to Address the Challenges Facing a Texas-based Company:

This Texas-based software company was scrabbling with the many challenges that are faced by software companies today from rising costs to inconsistencies with administration and developers. Moreover, the product lifecycles were being hampered and thereby, the companies’ overall output. Their core areas of service include Software Product Development, Mobile App Development, IoT, Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Web Applications.

At the very outset, we deployed a team of analytics to undertake a deepened analysis of the areas that were in need of improvement. The task at hand was to build a solid roadmap that would address every challenge and provide solutions for speedy rectification. The ultimate goal of creating this roadmap was to move the organization from a technology operator to a strategist. However, the core challenge was the approach of the company that was more reactive than proactive. Short-term needs had taken precedence over strategies and this cycle seemed to be never-ending.

We, therefore, built a technology roadmap that assisted the top management to align with the overarching goals and strategies of the organization. The roadmap was designed to assist and provide benefit to the technology leaders, innovators, and the functional staff, with a means for interconnectedness and collaboration. Through this governing document business strategies and priorities were clearly defined, along with a clear way to achieve objectives.

The roadmap consisted of:

  1. The Strategy Statement– This is a list of business priorities and objectives.
  2. Projects and Initiatives– A detailing of the projects and initiatives to be undertaken, along with the timelines for the same.
  3. Improvement Opportunities– The enlisting of several potential areas that need to be improved, an analysis of the means to undertake the same, and the benefits of optimization.
  4. Estimated Costs– All costs are accounted for and provided at the outset for predictability and planning.

Our Solution – A Dedicated Development Team:

The goals of the roadmap charted out were poised to be achieved through our offering of a dedicated team of developers that specialize in specific areas of expertise. A dedicated software development team’s advantages are numerous, but the overarching goal is to scale the business with dedicated hiring.

Through our innovative approach of hiring a team of dedicated developers, this Texas-based company was not only able to overcome every challenge that was initially highlighted, but also able to achieve results that exceeded their primary expectations. Among the many benefits of hiring a dedicated team of developers, the most significant is the criticality of the process to make the organization emerge as a market leader in its own space.

Dedicated Team Advantages:

The team consisted of the following entities:

Project Management Process:

What They Did: The members of the project management division of the team were hired specifically to ensure that every phase of the defined project is managed and completed in an optimal fashion. An initial analysis included the deliverable that must be generated and reviewed, the identification of resources and the controls to be exercised.

How They Did It: The most critical element toward the success of any project is the abilities of the project managers to manage the overall functionality of a particular project. Apart from the general task of deadline adherence and reminders and setting up of evaluation meetings, our project managers came with a deep understanding and experience of successful execution of project management. The team adopted a systematic approach that divided the project into five distinct categories – initiation, planning, execution, evaluation and closure. Each phase was given its due attention and only when the phase was satisfactorily completed would the project move to the next.
