Is your route to offshore software delivery clear?

Reassessing software services delivery with NashTech’s hybrid Agile Methodology

Today many businesses are reassessing the way they deliver software critical for their business transformation programmes, asking how they can build quicker, with more predictable outcomes whilst using outsourced teams who have proved, at times, more difficult to manage and more costly than initially expected. This alongside the imperative to build in greater resilience of service delivery given the uncertainty of current times.

If you are looking to modernise your approach to software development with a proven offshore technology partner then NashTech’s Real Offshore Agile Delivery (ROAD) approach is the way forward.

  • A collaborative and open approach
  • Built-in quality and value
  • Solid governance with total transparency

ROAD engagement models

REAL differences, REAL results

Through continuous improvement of processes and feedback from our customers, we have identified 4 areas where NashTech truly differentiates in its offshore delivery model. These are major factors in ensuring successful project outcomes for our clients:

Collaboration excellence:

The Vietnamese working culture is naturally open, honest and team achievement-focused. This combined with a great working relationship based upon supportive culture and a ‘can-do’ attitude of our people creates a high level of transparency and trust between our clients and their delivery teams. Key to successfully delivering Agile projects in the offshore environment is the way the day’s activities are structured – at NashTech we have maximised the opportunities of time zone difference to accelerate the delivery process.

Quality delivery:

Each of our projects includes Quality control engineers and representatives of our independent QA function, ensuring the highest appropriate level of test automation. Our developers are ISTQB qualified to ensure industry-standard deliveries. CMMi level 5.

Highly effective communication:

We have over 1,500 developers with excellent soft skills and are adept at using tools to support effective team working. Our development centres in Vietnam are equipped with appropriate data security policies, systems and infrastructure to provide the optimal level of communications.

Solid governance:

complex, multi-stakeholder projects leverage Prince2 or Scaled Agile governance (SAFe, NEXUS, SoS) to ensure high-level plans, designs and standards are properly outlined. Transparency is crucial in all of our work being performed through comprehensive metrics, rigorous risk assessment, mitigation and early corrective action.

Global Collaboration – maximizing the working day

Development methodologies

What are the benefits of ROAD?

Predictable results: If following Scrum Agile, we agree on the size and shape of each sprint with you in advance. You set the priorities for what is going to be developed and you know what you are certain to get, when and how much it is going to cost.

Cost-effective: Using NashTech’s team in Vietnam to do the majority of the work together with a lean onshore engagement and proven collaboration model reduces the overall cost but does not compromise on quality.

High quality: NashTech employs proven QC and QA practices across the whole software development lifecycle. We identify and fix problems early, we leverage appropriate test automation and this contributes to a high level of software quality.

Low risk: NashTech works to proven processes and focuses on ensuring effective collaboration and client engagement. This ensures our clients are in total control of their product development with full visibility of team performance and achievements.

Flexibility and speed: NashTech’s approach puts flexibility as a priority and provides this by delivering business value as usable features fast and iterating quickly whilst ensuring you are in control.

Scalability: The ROAD framework is both adaptable and scalable to suit your organisation and its needs, whether for fixed budget and scope following a Waterfall approach or fixed budget and flexible scope following a Scaled Agile approach.
