Xybion GDC - Blended Engagement Model (BEM)
Xybion adapts to the business objectives of its customers and uses several flexible global delivery models including the Hybrid model, Onsite/Offshore model, Offshore project outsourcing model, Exclusive and Scalable software development center model and on-site project staffing model.
The Hybrid concept is to reduce the complexity and risks associated with remoteness between customer and provider in “traditional” offshore model and to leverage proximity of the Nearshore destinations with fewer language and cultural barriers and no time zone differences.
Xybion has mastered the onsite/offshore or virtual extension model of engaging our offshore resources. In this model, for each project, Xybion creates a team with appropriate technical and managerial skill sets, with full time team members involved in the project for its entire duration from start to signoff.
Typically this team is responsible for developing certain components or functional modules. It works as an extension of a client onsite development team. The actual development by the extension team is carried out in Chennai, India, with an Xybion coordinator working with the client onsite.
If your organization already has experience in outsourcing IT tasks offshore, your own outsourcing coordinator may work directly with the extension team offshore. Real time communication is maintained within the distributed team using conference calls, video conferencing, Web collaboration tools, instant messaging and e-mail. Engaging the onsite/offshore model will deliver value quickly even on small projects because Xybion has invested in offshore collaboration methodologies and technologies supporting offshore resources. Try Xybion out with a pilot project and let us demonstrate what Xybion can do for you.
Project Outsourcing Model
Project outsourcing model is an attractive option for small and medium sized projects with a well defined scope. It is equally attractive to Xybion's customers globally. Scope based projects, enhancement projects, maintenance projects, web site design, custom e-business and e-commerce applications tailored for a specific purpose, small business and any software applications fall into this category.
More often it is a full cycle all-inclusive project outsourcing (from system design to testing, deployment and maintenance). However, it can also be a partial outsourcing project when Xybion is responsible for only some of the software lifecycle stages.
While outsourcing an IT project to an external provider (offshore or locally), there are factors that Xybion encourages the customer to watch closely. They include scope definition, attention to change management, and well structured communication. The role of an outsourcing coordinator on the client side is difficult to underestimate.
A project outsourcing model pricing may be based on the time and materials basis as well as the fixed price basis. In the latter case Xybion charges a negotiated fixed price for the complete scope of work linked to tangible deliverables and scheduled milestone deadlines.
Xybion offers professional knowledge of leading technologies coupled with best practices and commitment to quality to ensure the success of your project.
Exclusive Software Development Center Model
For client engagements lasting six months or longer, Xybion has designed and successfully implemented a unique business proposition of setting up and operating a dedicated software development center. Such an organization works exclusively for one client, and provides all facilities and utilities necessary for software development.
This unique business proposition is yet to be fully matched in the global sourcing provider market in Chennai, India. In the past couple of years Xybion has excelled in creating and running software development centers for two successful technology companies headquartered in North America and Japan. Another software development center for a new client is being currently blueprinted.
Xybion is one of the most renowned J2EE and .NET platform shops in Chennai, India. Xybion's proposition for technology companies to deploy their software development centers has been extremely successful due to the rising interest of high-technology companies in various vertical industries around the world to secure, efficient and low cost Java-based enterprise and Internet solutions.
Software development centers located in Chennai, India are tapping the vast scientific, analytical and statistical potential accumulated over number of years locally. Essentially this is your own software development lab located remotely.
Xybion personnel realizes the complexity and responsibility involved in creating a software development center for technology companies providing services to their strategic and smaller clients with their own business rules and practices. Therefore, Xybion does not pre-package software development centers with options or defined scenarios. Instead, Xybion tailors them to fit your specific need, standard operating procedures, and corporate culture. Xybion's staff does everything possible to understand the uniqueness of your business goals in and fine tune every detail of the Service Level Agreement (SLA).
On-site Project Staffing
This type of service has been especially popular among IT departments of IT community experiencing an immediate need or periodic demand in qualified and skilled software developers, analysts, and testers at short notice. Xybion's specialists have been involved in large scale projects in Life Sciences, ECM, GRC and Maximo markets.
Xybion encourages customers to participate in selecting and/or approving a team of Xybion’s software engineers that will work for them. The engineers are carefully pre-screened according to the customer’s requirements (technical and communication skills, experience level and profession).
The team is deployed onsite for as long as necessary to successfully complete the project (six months on average) or longer if the customer chooses to re-use the team on new related projects. Xybion specialists work together with, or more often as a part of, the customer’s project or product team, thus becoming closely familiar with customer's trade and congruent with customers short-term and mid-term business objectives.
