In this approach, work is performed
at Frontier's own development lab at its offices located
in Houston, Texas. The biggest advantage that offsite development
provides is the reduction of software development costs.
At Frontier, we understand that different requirements exist
with regard to specific business functions as well as cost
and time frames for completion. Accordingly we adapt our
services so that comprehensive offsite development programs
can be offered to you.
Prior to beginning any work, the Frontier
of the engagement. The project scope, deliverables, screen
layouts, reporting, functionality issues, timelines, etc.
defined in detail. A small mockup of the actual application
may also be developed during this phase to understand the
feel of the end product.
After the definition phase, work
moves to the Frontier lab. Deliverables and other progress
reports will be made available to client at pre-agreed
intervals. The client may choose to receive remote access
to the development server via a VPN or some other secure
means. By accessing the development server remotely, the client
can monitor progress in real time, and maintain overall control
even though work is being carried out offsite.
This approach is ideal
for engagements where:
The scope has been defined in detail
Timelines are aggressive
Possible need for the client to visit with the development team
or the team's managers for greater efficiency
