The board and executive management of a technology company often make great strategies. However it requires access to strong development teams in order for the management team to execute on these strategies, and grow their companies stronger than their competitors. This is a big challenge for any technology company in the Western hemisphere.
Experience and Knowledge
Software product companies often push the boundaries of the technology they use. They have more features that they would like to include in the solution than is possible with their current development organization. Competition necessitates that the software products constantly evolve and have the features and user-interfaces that the customers expect.
Software companies are trying to attract the top performing developers from the same small pool of resources. This leads to difficulties hiring and retaining key resources and scaling the development organization. To have a strong scalable development organization within the budget, building a nearshore and offshore development center becomes a compelling option.

HOW WE WORK
Hiring the right hard and especially soft skills is crucial to the long term growth success of your team. Therefore we, in close cooperation with our clients, analyse needed skill profiles and implement rigorous testing and evaluation on candidates.
Your offshore team must be deeply integrated in both your business and IT organization. The team members will act as your employees. We hire the team specifically for you with the skills and experience that you require. It is important to build a strong corporate culture in the team which will result in low turnover that mitigates the time required to obtain domain knowledge of the systems.
FINDING THE RIGHT SKILLS
A setup that meets these challenges includes IT resources with good business understanding, high technical competence, and strong English skills. We would build the development center in either Portugal or Malaysia. These locations offer high levels of competence and availability in Mainframe resources as well as other development platforms such as: Java, .NET, mobile, frontend, etc.
