Software Development

EduLib Software Development Service allows enterprises to focus on their core strength of managing and growing their business. As a strategic partner, EduLib brings in comprehensive expertise in the complete Software Development Life Cycle from requirements to specifications, design, development, testing, deployment, sustenance.

Methodology

The various Software Development Methodologies share much of the same philosophy, the same characteristics and practices. Most methodologies use some combination of the following stages of software development:

  1. Analysis of the software requirements
  2. Gathering requirements and devising a plan for the proposed business solution
  3. Design, detailed specification for the software solution
  4. Implementation (coding) of the software
  5. Quality Assurance and Documentation
  6. Deployment and Acceptance
  7. Maintenance and Bug Fixing

EduLib Software Development Team offers a complete Software Development Life Cycle, choosing the right methodology that assures a delivery of a customized software according to client requirements.

Business Models

There are different business models you can use to outsource the development, testing, or maintenance of your software product, but they are all based on the three primary approaches: staff augmentation, dedicated teams, and project-based outsourcing.

  • Staff Augmentation

    EduLib makes the provision of staff with specific skills managed by the client. In this model, staff (consultants) from EduLib act as an extension of the client’s project team and they will be supervised by a client manager responsible for that project delivery.

  • Managed Capacity

    EduLib provides and manages a fixed amount of capacity (in man days) to deliver the services. We generate extra capacity to cover for absences from the team, but also can decide to increase our capacity to meet the fixed capacity obligations. This model is very effective in situations where the nature of work is likely to change or different types of work are required at various phases during the outsourcing contract.

  • Managed Service

    EduLib, the service provider, takes primary responsibility for delivering the service. We take day-to-day management responsibilities as a strategic method for improving operations and cutting expenses. Managed Service relieves client and its staff of the burden of day-to-day management. This model is often adopted when the work can be clearly scoped out with clearly marked out deliverables.

  • Strategic Partnership

    For many companies, outsourcing to a third party provider may not be the best solution. There are companies that do not want a body shop but they want to grow into a long term relationships. Or, there are companies that may be dealing with very sensitive data or highly sensitive processes that require a great deal of operational control and quality assurance. Such companies can of course do this by establishing their owned subsidiary, but doing so requires a great deal of due diligence and large, long-term investments.

A Strategic Partnership with EduLib is the perfect way to effectively address the challenges described above. Should your company first want to check things out then you can still use our Business Models first before you make a long-term commitment.

Pricing

The pricing of our Software Development Services depends largely on the complexity of your project and the nature of the work. These are some of the pricing models we apply for the three Business Models:

Hourly Rates Pricing: For many of our personnel-based projects (Staff Augmentation, Managed Capacity), we charge a fixed hourly rate. This is very useful in scenarios where you, for instance, need a person for a number of hours per day.

Deliverable-based Pricing: For deliverable-based projects and services (Staff Augmentation, Managed Capacity, Managed Service), we often charge a fixed fee per deliverable.

Project Pricing: EduLib often determines a fixed price for the entire project or service (Managed Service).
