How Do You Put A Project Team Together?

Project work is generally performed in one of two ways: either as a completely outsourced project, or as an integrated team.

Outsourced Projects

Outsourced projects are often best if you do not view technology as a core competency, but instead view technology as a way to accomplish a specific goal. For example, as a marketing manager you may view technology as another way to generate leads, but you aren’t particularly concerned with the specific technical details.

In this model, we provide the technology team, including project management, development, test, and we leverage cloud-based systems to provide a highly scalable, secure deployment. From your perspective, you will be invited to daily check-ins, bi-weekly planning meetings, and you will be able to log in to a secure site to view work-in-progress versions of your application at all times.

  • Online project management portfolio - See the status of work at all times
  • Online secure test site - Examine the state of work for rapid feedback
  • Deployed solutions scalable to meet business needs -  No need to worry about massive upfront costs. Marketing events can drive large bursts of traffic without fear.

Integrated Team

Integrated team projects are best if you view technology as a core competency and you want to ensure that your team is able to learn while the project is underway. For example, our teams leverage current, proven technology and processes to deliver solutions, including:

  • Continuous Integration
  • Test-Driven Development
  • Automated Visual Verification & Web Test Tools
  • Cloud-based Deployment
  • Agile: Scrum and Kanban Project Management

If your team is struggling to meet timelines, working with changing business initiatives, or finding deployment a challenging, time-consuming issue, an integrated team may be the best solution.
