Managed Engineering: Enhancing Dedicated and Managed Team Service Models

Managed Engineering elevates the traditional Dedicated or Managed Team frameworks by integrating comprehensive project management, strategic planning, and process optimization into the service offering. This approach not only provides clients with a team of skilled professionals dedicated to their projects but also enhances project execution through expert oversight and management in the long run.

 

The aim is to streamline the client's software development process, enhance productivity, and ensure the successful delivery of projects while allowing the client to focus on their core business objectives.

Software development excellence fuels business performance. Talent shortage is the biggest constraint for achieving sustainable growth

Common Questions & Answers

How much control do I have over my team?

Even though our software development teams work independently, you still hold the steering wheel when it comes to guiding and overseeing your team. This is true for both in-house and outsourced teams, but your hands-on involvement might decrease once the team gets going.

Is using in-house developers better than hiring an external team?

There's value in both in-house developers and external software teams. External teams come in handy when you need to quickly grow your team, kick off new or one-off projects, or keep your in-house team zeroed in on other parts of the business.

Hiring external teams can also help cut down on high salaries, or costs tied to hiring, recruiting, and training new talent. They offer the flexibility to quickly set up new teams, making it easier for you to adjust your team size based on workload.

How Do Software Development Companies Ensure Quality?

Software development companies use quality assurance practices like adhering to best practices, conducting code reviews, performing automated and manual testing, utilizing bug tracking systems, and seeking client feedback. Forte uses a mature performance framework including Quality Assurance processes and standards.

What is Agile Software Development Methodology?

Agile is a methodology that emphasizes iterative and flexible approaches, focusing on collaboration, adaptability, and delivering working software in short iterations called sprints. It allows teams to respond effectively to changes and customer feedback. Forte uses the Agile methodology at scale.

Do Software Development Companies Provide Ongoing Support and Maintenance?

Software development companies often provide ongoing support and maintenance services, including bug fixes, security updates, performance optimization, technical support, and accommodating evolving user needs.

What engagement models are available from Forte Group?

Forte adapts engagement to suit your requirements and you can choose from the four models with proven performance - Scaled Engineering, Managed Engineering, Managed Product, Software Development Consulting and Product Strategic Advisory.
