Globally Distributed Development
Ness works carefully with clients to achieve goal alignment and then to match deployment strategies to business goals. While some organizations prefer to pursue single country/region models in the first phases of our relationship, many recognize the opportunity to employ multi-shore models as the engagement evolves and the partnership deepens.
Ness leverages methods and best practices gained from creating and managing more than 50 software product labs for clients to reduce the risk and complexity of global software product development. Joint process frameworks include critical elements from clients combined with Ness’ expertise to form visible and governed operating methods that allow the extended team to work locally and collaborate globally.
Ness relies heavily on state-of-the-art collaboration tools and techniques across two categories:
- Conversational Interactions: Discovery and relationship building which are often critical during the first few phases of the engagement.
- Collaborative Interactions: Document management, threaded discussions, audit history and other mechanisms designed to capture the efforts of many into a managed content environment for the benefit of all team members.
Global Technology Centers
Our operations span three key engineering talent geographies:
We work as a flexible extension, mapping to client location preferences in order to meet their operational and growth objectives. As a result of our global processes and approach, clients are able to direct what work is executed in which center throughout the product development lifecycle. Since our centers are staffed and managed with local technology experts we act as a natural hedge against wage fluctuation, geopolitical risk, and retention of talent.
Ness is constantly evaluating additional talent-rich locations around the world including within Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet States, China, and Latin America. We have honed our deployment methodology allowing us to rapidly select and staff centers should our clients require additional teams in these regions, or as market conditions prove favorable.
