Aplyca Expert Staffing Solutions respond to new customer demands
Software outsourcing is an industry that has experienced notable growth in recent decades. Countries such as India benefited greatly form traditional projects managed with the waterfall methodology. Such projects typically supported large groups of programmers with varying degrees of experience. These projects usually ran for several years with each engineer responsible for a tiny portion of the overall code of the project.
In such an environment size was a tremendous asset as these projects grew to huge proportions developing internal operations software. In today’s networked and fast-paced world, companies are realizing incredible opportunities by developing new customer-facing applications that provide valuable differentiation in the marketplace. Even applications developed for employees need to get to the on-boarding process much more quickly and need to sport a well though out user experience in order to respond to a work environment with limited employee attention bandwidth due to increased multitasking.
In a world where development has switched from internal to external applications, from a focus on size to a focus on agility and from stagnant, standardized development platforms to a quick changing technology landscape, building next-generation applications requires a different framework. For one thing, engineers are less interchangeable and need to integrate more closely as a team in order to keep pace with the faster, more agile development cycles.
New software development environment requires more intensive real time coordination with the entire team. Working with remote engineers in the same time zone has many benefits. There are several, but one that isn’t oft discussed is of a balanced work/life environment where engineers aren’t working throughout the night. This also improves retention rates (which are extremely high at Aplyca) making sure that teams and projects aren’t disrupted.
Bogotá as an attractive investment destination
Bogotá is the capital of Colombia, a country that has, in recent years, traded in bad press on a variety of issues for a new found respect from tourists and businesses. For instance, the New York Times readers recently selected Cartagena, Colombia as the #2 recommended destination in the world. Also, according to the World Bank, Colombia has the second most qualified labor pool in Latin America.
These are not only cold, hard statistics. Several of our clients have enjoyed their occasional visits not only because of the professionalism of our engineers, but also because of the warmth of the local culture. As an example, these are just some of the factors that Hewlett-Packard considered when it decided to open it’s new global services hub inside the country.
