Development and Quality Assurance Resources

Case Study - Development Services for a Small Business

Company Overview

The company provides a suite of decision-support products for the medical industry.  The company has several products.  Each product has its own distinct capabilities, database backend and presentation technology. The company also maintains sophisticated internal applications to facilitate various business processes.
 

Business Challenge

Not only does the company have several products, they serve multiple markets with different requirements.  The company delivers 6 - 8 releases every year.  They were running into several problems:

  • Despite many products, the requirement called for a small team - the company was having a difficult time building and retaining.
  • Could not get the releases out in time.
  • Frequent releases did not allow for a thorough testing of all releases - compromising quality.
  • The company required specialized skills for time to time, that were impossible to hire each time.
  • The company required expertise in Java, .NET and XML, top-notch QA and documentation solutions.  But as many skills were required part-time, it was difficult to hire in-house resources.

The company outsourced its entire development effort to BayTech because of our technical expertise, focus on small businesses, and our Boston area presence.
