The dual-shore (onsite/offsite + offshore) delivery model is known to maximize cost effectiveness. It will help you navigate through recession and do more with limited IT budgets, without sacrificing innovation. It will synchronize the objectives of the onsite and offshore teams with regular knowledge-transfer sessions. The main objective is to leverage technology, practices and accountability of the parent organization with the scalability of the Offshore Development Center (ODC) to deliver a sizeable value proposition to clients.
The Dual-Shore model also allows the combination of onshore and offshore programmers, software architects, testers, designers, marketers and project managers. It mitigates the risks and uncertainties of remote development by offering business analysis and project management control at the client site. It also reduces the need to have internal teams work during odd working hours.
