THE CASE FOR SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT 'as-a-SERVICE'

A New Strategy for Accessing Software Developer Skills is Reducing the Upfront Cost & Complications of the Resource-Based Model.

Software customization is expensive, especially when development demands don't justify hiring a full-time Developer. But the Access Economy now makes it possible for organizations to accomplish their development objectives without the upfront investment and overhead of the traditional Resource-Based model — lowering the cost of development 45% on average.

This whitepaper makes the case for accessing Software Development 'as-a-Service' and explains the benefits of the strategy, including:

  • Zero Upfront Expense or Charges Beyond Cost of Development
  • Greater Transparency for Project Planning & Budgeting
  • Shorter Delivery Timelines Due to "Parallel Development"

Enterprise organizations are increasingly using 'as-a-Service' solutions to lower cost and increase flexibility. Learn how you can extend these same benefits to your custom development projects as well. 

Core Benefits of Software Development 'as-a-Service'

LOWER COST

Using an 'as-a-Service' development strategy, where only value-added tasks are charged, removes the cost burden associated with developer downtime, which can be as high as 50% of a developer's day within the Resource-Based model.

PARALLEL DEVELOPMENT
When total demand is low development must commonly be approached in a serial fashion. The team approach of an 'as-a-Service' IT support (ITaaS) provider enables development work to be done in parallel without impacting overall cost.

QUALITY
The need for the developer to have a high level of programming skills, communication/collaboration skills, self-management and organizational skills are as important in an ITaaS solution as a resource-based approach (FTE or Contractor).
