At Phenix Solutions, we understand the obstacles facing today's IT executives and managers. In a climate of shrinking budgets, fewer investment dollars, increasing complexity, high risk, and rising costs, it is a significant challenge to develop software products, making sure they meet expectations and have a high degree of market viability. To meet these challenges, Phenix Solutions has created a model that minimizes risk, offers uncompromising scalability, and delivers quality software at a pace that matches the speed at which your business grows.
The insourcing evolution provides an exciting and compelling way for your company to reap the benefits of global resources at the level of commitment that is right for you, and ensures that head knowledge and IP remain with your organization.
The blended evolutionary model consists of three distinct stages of engagement:
Each stage builds upon the previous, and the overall result is one of cumulative efficiencies gained in annual cost savings and team expertise in your project. The advantage of this model is that it enables you to start small, measure results, forecast resource needs, and then determine an appropriate level of commitment. As your business needs dictate, you ramp up resources, safe in the awareness that you're creating knowledge equity about your business and product that stays with your company.
The initial process in our model is developing small containable projects or project components. These ad hoc or pilot projects establish the working relationship between our organizations. Our development team in the US has a significant role in these initial projects. It is important to establish project-specific knowledge in the US-based technical staff. The Phenix Solutions US-based leadership combined with our global development team offers a compelling financial model.
As your development strategies require moving beyond smaller ad hoc projects, Phenix Solutions assigns permanent resources dedicated solely to your project. These global personnel become an increasingly important part of your development team as they build increasingly complex systems to support your vision. With the shift of a larger bulk of work to a more economically favorable location, your cost savings increase.
Over time, resources with comprehensive knowledge of your business become critical to your success. To protect this competitive advantage and reduce cost, Phenix Solutions offers a fixed, insourced team on retainer. As a result you gain complete control over the team priorities. This flexibility lets you quickly respond to market pressures without the overhead of negotiating conntracts for each project. We will work with you to ensure the insourced team, staffed with personnel you know and trust, is of sufficient size and completely experienced with your processes and products. We recommend this approach for building and extending product lines.
