When companies strive to implement the best possible solution for their business, they tend to get bogged down in the mundane aspects of programming.

To maximize development productivity, minimize cost of development and minimize the risk of failure, NuBreed Technologies developed a methodology that provides a concrete and reliable framework for the project management, quality control and software process standards. We also utilize our offshore partners to streamline the software development process and reduce development costs. Offshore development strengthens all elements of project management with the help of our NuBreed suite of tools that allow us to operate as one team. We proactively monitor progress, costs and take corrective measures as necessary. Our Software Development Methodology realizes projects using structural, as well as, object-oriented approaches. As its cornerstone, NuBreed Technologies adopted Rapid Application Development methodology along with Rational Unified Process and combined it with offshore development practices to insure early risk mitigation, low costs and low risk experimentation on complex solutions.

Offshore Software Development Risk Factors
While Offshore Development offers significant financial benefits, additional risk factors tend to proliferate. These risks are:

  • Resource Availability
  • Time Difference
  • Communication
  • Management

To eliminate the risk, NuBreed Technologies focuses on the following characteristics when engaging in the partnership with an offshore business:

  • All of our partners are required to use internationally approved standards of software development such as Rational Unified Process (RUP), many are ISO certified and all have majority of certified professionals with masters and doctorates in mathematics and applied sciences such as Computer Science.
  • Most of our offshore partners are required to have a real time development services. The programming teams are able to work in tandem with the domestic development and management teams. i.e. 8:00am-5:00pm central standard time, as well as 24x7 iterative process is well suited to new technologies and has been adapted to e-business needs.
  • To make our solution centers transparent to the client’s location, all of our offshore partners are required to have multiple dedicated phone lines as well as permanent reliable connection to the Internet.

Ultimately, methodology is the most important contributing factor to the success of the solution. Our management methodology allows us to operate as one team regardless of geographical location, proactively monitor progress and take corrective measures if necessary.
