The Extended Development Centre™ model is a revolutionary concept in offshore outsourcing and helps clients gain measurable business benefits while minimising the typical risks surrounding software development at offshore locations. Under this model, a dedicated team is setup at Sriven Systems offshore locations utilizing state-of-the-art infrastructure that basically becomes an extension of the clients own onsite development team.

The EDC™ model results in cost optimization and improves productivity by leveraging the facts that both onsite and the EDC teams work on the same development environment, have day to day interaction and are connected through a Virtual Private Network (VPN) while taking advantage of lower cost locations.

Trasitional Offshore Model

  • Except for requirements gathering phase the whole project is developed at offshore location with little or no interaction with the client.
  • Problem during deployment as the development and deployment environments are different at the onsite and offshore locations.
  • Little or no control over the project life cycle methodology, coding, documentation and other standards.
  • Not very flexible to accomodate dynamic changes to the project on an continuos basis.
  • Scope of "surprises" when the final application is delivered due to lack of communications or the requirements not being understood properly.

EDC™ Model

  • Account manager based at onsite location becomes primary point of contact for the client and is responsible for all project related issues including reporting.
  • Development and Deployment environments of the client are replicated at the offshore location. Coding and other standards of clients are followed.
  • EDC facilitates collaborative work on an interactive platform for discussions as well as providing access to a common repository of project-related information.
  • Flexible to accomodate dynamic changes to the project or team size & composition.
  • VPN enables the client and EDC teams to access remote environments on both sides, thereby providing a seemlessly integrated development environment.

Advantages Of EDC ™ Model:

Little or no need for client to replicate sensitive information at offshore location as the EDC team can access the clients data remotely through VPN.

Reduces time-to-market by allowing rapid ramp-up/down of resources on a short notice.

Need for fewer resources to be based onsite, cutting costs involved like travel accommodation, office facilities etc while enjoying the benefits of onsite development.

Mature and proven EDC processes in place allow client to monitor/review the project status, Quality and other parameters on a daily basis.

Allows greater flexibility for the client to focus on core business without having to think about infrastructure, recruitment, training and retention.

Requirements are validated on a regular basis and project reviewed at regular intervals thereby avoiding “surprises” in the future.

Ability to prioritize requirements as well as simultaneously work on multiple projects as needed.

Easy to develop Ideas or migrate existing applications using New/Emerging Technologies at Lower Risks/Costs.
