A Recipe For Outsourcing Your Software Development

Outsourcing your software development can save you time and money if you know what you need. Too often US companies attempted to outsource without a good understanding of what their software should do, and this is the biggest cause of outsourcing failure. It is unreasonable to expect your outsourcing team to have a menu of software, pre-prepared, so you can just select the items you want.

Ever go to a restaurant with a picky eater? They tell the waiter in excruciating detail how they want their food prepared. And heaven forbid that the food arrives different from what was requested! Back to the kitchen it goes to be "fixed" to make the picky eater happy.

Sometimes US companies hire an outsourced partner as if they were going to a restaurant. They select the cuisine based on the flavor of the technology they require. Chinese .NET or Indian Java? How about some Russian C ++? Unfortunately there is rarely a menu for the exact items you might like to order from an outsourced team.

Are you approaching outsourcing your software like you are walking into a restaurant? Are you expecting the outsourcing team to advise you, like an attentive waiter, on the way your software should look, be prepared and presented to your customers?

Instead, bring your own recipe when you start work with an outsourcing team. Unlike your dining experiences, you can not ask for the daily special. You have to provide a specific description of what you would like to have, and how it should be prepared. Without such a recipe, your outsourced software development efforts can be starved for success.

Poorly specified software is often the result when "subject matter experts" are involved. Subject matter experts, or SMEs, know a lot about a particular subject, like IC design, business process workflow, inventory management, etc., but very little about designing software. SMEs can struggle to get their ideas encoded in the software. They need to work with someone that knows the best way to design and develop software.

Sometimes, there is a fear of getting bogged down in the details. Since some software executives are great with people, they feel much more comfortable hiring a person to handle the details. They know how to manage a person here, better than they can manage an offshore team of programmers in a remote offshore location.

One Accelerance client is in this situation. The CEO wants to outsource the development of a new software product. But there is no specification. In this case Accelerance is acting as a virtual CTO, responsible for the design, and development of the client's software.

The client is essentially saying, "Design the software for me, and I'll tell you if it matches what I am thinking." This can work because the cost of outsourcing is so low that rework and multiple design iterations are affordable.

This type of arrangement only works when paying on a Time and Materials basis. There is no way to offer fixed pricing because the end product is not defined.

Of course, not having a specification may not stop you from asking for a fixed price bid! In this case, you can outsource the creation of a specification that defines your software for a fixed price. Then the resulting complete design specification is used to create a second fixed price bid for writing your software.

Another factor comes into play when you pay a fixed price amount for a software design specification. You usually have to pay at least half up front. This is to protect the outsourcing company from delivering a specification for creating the software and then not getting paid.

Because software design often occurs at the beginning of a relationship, both parties seek to minimize their risk. You minimize your risk by selecting an outsourcing team with a proven track record and great references. The outsourcing team reduces their risk by getting partial (sometimes full) payment before starting.

There are multiple deliverables that should be produced during the design phase of creating your software, whether you do it yourself, or outsource the design:

* Marketing Requirements

* Storyboard Demo

* Functional Specification

* Multiple Release Milestone Schedule

* Detailed Task Schedule for First Release

* Detailed Design Specification (optional)

Unfortunately, software development has not progressed to the point where ready-made modules are available to order and combined to create your software. There is not yet a menu of choices available to anyone that is hungry for new software. Instead, you must provide your own recipe for what you need. The good news is low cost outsourced software design and development resources are now available to create your custom software to meet your exact specifications.

Why the Color White Does not Work For Everyone

White is a staple in most women's wardrobes. But believe it or not, it does not work for everyone. In fact stark white does not work for most women!

Every woman has a unique natural movement that is expressed in her body language, physical features, and overall approach to life. We look our best when we wear colors that match our natural movement and expression.

Let's look at white through a vibrational / movement lens. Imagine a scale where one end of the scale represents no movement and the other end of the scale represents very high movement. Where would you place stark white on that scale?

Think about it, white is still, constant, plain and pure. White is color with nothing added. It would go on the no movement side of the scale. If you are the type of woman with a higher more dynamic or buoyant nature, white is going to appear as though it is sitting on top of your body rather than becoming a part of your whole expression of beauty. If you are a woman with a more subdued nature, white is way to stark and cold for your natural warmth and comforting style. Women with a more structured, stylized nature look best in stark white.

Here are some substitutes for white for women with different natural movement levels. Changing your pure, stark whites to these honoring substitutes will bring life and vitality to your natural beauty.

If your natural movement is more buoyant and spontaneous, you will look best in winter white. Your naturally sunny nature is honored by the warmth of winter white.

If your natural movement is more subdued and gentle, you will look best in eggshell white. Adding the grayed undertone supports your relaxed, calm approach to life.

If your natural movement is more swift and dynamic, you will look best in a shade of light tan that we call wheat. This golden tan color honors your rich and substantial approach to life.

Pure / stark white when worn by the wrong woman will add years and the illusion of added pounds to your appearance. So throw away the idea that white is a neutral that everyone can wear. It's just not true.

Giving up your white is not as hard as you think. Replacing it with your version of white to honor your true nature will take years off your appearance and pounds off your body. And with results like that who would not want to give up their stark whites!

Knowing your true nature and natural movement and matching your clothing to honor this natural expression will bring out your true beauty to a level that will even surprise yourself.

What Is Alternative, Compartmental, Unconventional, Traditional Medicine?

The third millennium begins with a new scenario in the Health sector. In our country, non-conventional medicine is now part of services that local hospitals give.

Professional associations are preparing a series of evaluation criteria for medical experts in natural medicine.

University has begun to turn its attention to this phenomenon, to understand, analyze it and drive it.

The use of unconventional medicine is specifically used for treatment of chronic and degenerative diseases and cancer patients are a significant part of those who come precisely to these treatments.

I hope, with this article, fruit of long research in these fields, first to help the patient and his family understand more clearly, to choose and encourage reflection and communication between doctor and patient, when the latter decides to undergo an integrated treatment.

In this category of Orders doctors include acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal medicine, the 'anthrophosphy,' Ayurveda, the 'homotoxicology, traditional Chinese medicine,' osteopathy and chiropractic.
