Delta Channel Services: New Approach for Quality Offshore Software Development

PAWLEYS ISLAND, SOUTH CAROLINA--(Marketwire - Oct. 6, 2011) - "The recession in the West has forced software development companies to look closely at development costs for traditional and SaaS applications whilst also driving faster times to market. The conventional alternatives such as subcontracting have often got a poor quality reputation" comments John Miller Director of Delta Consulting, "now previously unviable sized development teams, from as small as 4 developers upwards, can be quickly built offshore for these ISV's employing their own dedicated development resources and with a unique quality management system built in."

"Total operational cost is typically 25% based on the rates in the US and the UK markets" commented Milind Garde Managing Director of Delta India "it is not only a case of having four skilled offshore resources for every one onshore but providing effective quality management at both the onshore and offshore ends."

ISVs are becoming more sophisticated in their requirements and they want a service that removes all the logistical, legal, HR and general hassle of operating offshore and ensures the highest quality in a Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) model."

"One of the key aspects of Cloud based development, especially for SaaS applications, is the need to offer not just development infrastructure but a full Platform as a Service. Smaller ISVs based in the USA do not have the experience and bandwidth to create their own billing and provisioning solutions – so combined with the use of offshore resources this offers a one stop shop and reduces dramatically time to market" confirms Warren Winterbottom CEO Delta International North America.

Graham Kingsmill, CEO of Managed Services supplier Maxima PLC agrees "The Indian market is important to us and Delta's expertise has proven of great value in the flexible expansion of our Microsoft AX software development operations in Pune."
