SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT The Apex Advantage:Our solutions consist of seasoned engagement delivery consultants, Agile aligned project enablers, and custom-built teams to deliver on time, on budget, development projects. Experience in Action: Our client, a Fortune 500 healthcare company, needed to build a development center using Agile techniques and engaged Apex to provide the best solution. Scope > Our Client A Fortune 500 healthcare client specializing in bioscience, medication delivery, and renal services. > Situation Our client’s objective was to build domestic onshore development center using Agile techniques. This center would support multiple new and ongoing Java and C++ software development projects. The client had even considered moving this center offshore. However, using both on and offshore services to accommodate the Agile framework requirement would add a layer of unnecessary complexity to the program. Additionally, to be effective, the center would have to operate with high velocity and maximum efficiency and use real-time communication feedback loops between the teams. Specific goals of the program included: Access to the right technical talent at the right time leveraging an on-demand managed workforce Robust risk management Existence of a fully equipped and offsite facility Cost savings relative to other onshore options Rapid startup > Services AgileOffsite FacilityJava Development Solution > Solution Apex provided an onshore offsite development center facility for 60 resources. Apex’s Workforce Management solution provided robust demand planning and resource management, enabling deployment of the right resources at the right time. Once deployed, these teams leveraged customized components of our Workforce Management approach such as boot camp training, daily on-site engagement management resources, and ApexPRM, our world class project risk management process. Work performed is closely integrated with our client’s Agile Scrum Development approaches. To round out our solution, our Workforce Management approach also provided team performance management and ongoing reporting.
