Outsourcing to India
Success in new economy era heavily depends on the Business’ ability to adapt to market pressures with speed and timeliness. These often demand changes to business processes and their support systems. One of the proven strategies is for the business to spend their scarce internal resources in developing sustainable competitive advantage, leaving non-core areas to be outsourced. This has led to the usage of alternative sourcing options especially in system development initiatives, including independent contractors, application service providers (ASPs), external integrators and remote programming resources.
Why Outsource to India?
Increasingly, outsourcing to offshore contracting, especially to India has become a very attractive option. In the early days of outsourcing, a number of IT organizations have used offshore providers for legacy and maintenance work because of the relatively low risk associated with these projects. However, in recent years this model has dramatically changed.
Employing offshore contractors with a strong the US presence, or indirectly through domestic integrators, can extend offshore contractors’ range of tasks beyond the more mundane projects to e-business application development projects utilizing the latest technologies, while at the same time minimizing risk, reducing overhead and speeding up time to market.
India has become the leader in offshore software development because of -
- Its highly trained workforce
- Appreciation for software development disciplines
- High Quality — Indian firms have shown themselves capable of providing extremely high level of software development

Process and Methodology
Software projects are inherently complex, risky and require careful planning. Planning software includes development, estimates, staged development, requirements capture and risk & change management control procedures, business case studies, user interface prototypes and overall project control.
Proper planning ensures that the project does not move away from its targeted goals while the customer gets a clear definition of the project and is in the know of the project status and has ready access to project deliverables at any point of time.
To ensure the timely and quality delivery for 100 percent client satisfaction Allzone IT Solutions implements the following:
Prototypes and Staged Deliveries
- Projects that define deliverables in terms of prototype, phases or stages identify risks and constraints early on and are able to plan and implement counter measures with greater success.
- The functionality is developed and delivered in stages thus ensuring that the most important function is delivered at the earliest.
- Reduces the possibility of estimation errors
- Projects visibility to customers and upper management increases
Comprehensive Bug Management
Bugs are part of every product development process. How do you track the bugs you find during product development and after? Bugs that are found but not properly tracked might slip away. Allzone IT Solutions uses the leading bug and defect-tracking tool for bug management, which leads to:
- Streamlined software development and maintenance
- Clear, updated information about the status of each bug or defect
- Full control over the work flow
- History of work done on each bug, defect or enhancement being always a click away
- A fully integrated solution that enables users to input and track new bugs, defects, and problems in general
Methodologies and Tools
Our Allzone IT Solutions team adopts project methodologies based on the client’s project specifications and requirements. Allzone IT Solutions extensive expertise on the following methodologies:
This life-cycle model demands a systematic, sequential approach to software development that begins at the Customer’s software requirements and progresses through analysis, design, coding, testing and post development warranty and is considered an ideal choice when the user’s software requirements are clearly stated at the inception of the project.
Object Oriented Model
This methodology is used to define the activities and work products for each phase and in projects where the development tasks arrive as work packets. The phases of execution, the associated work products, verification and validation criteria for each of the relevant phases shall be at par with this methodology.
This methodology defines a mechanism to handle concept building and/or prototyping projects and is used by Allzone IT Solutions in complex projects in order to understand requirements better, to reduce design risks and to share the user interface with the Customer. Concept building projects are typically of an R&D type, where the goal is to arrive at an optimal solution based on a short description of requirements by the Customer.
The Incremental model of development is an evolutionary model that combines the elements of the linear sequential model (Waterfall model) and the iterative philosophy of Prototyping and is considered ideal for a project that is complex by nature having large business components and interfaces with third party business applications, requiring high availability, and tight security. It also helps in managing the technology risks by spreading the risk across successive increments. This unique methodology has the distinct advantage of getting developed, quality assured and demonstrable functionality at the end of iteration, which can be improved upon with successive iterations to get the desired functionality. In the Project lifecycle, we use tools which facilitate or effectively document the following activities,:
- Project Management & Planning (PMP)
- Configuration Management (CM) & Version Controlling
- System Architecture Design
- Automated Testing
- Bug Management
Allzone IT Solutions recognizes that, to fulfill our goal of self-evident quality, we need constantly to improve our deliverables to match the increasing expectations of our customers.
