    Default Finding a quality java/ j2ee outsourcing firm or developers

    Just to start out let me state that I'm an intermediate level Java/ J2EE developer myself with about 4 years experience. I recently had a side project that I handed off to an outsourcing firm in India and they made a real mockery out of the project. They didn't follow any of the common best practices, didn't take advantage of multi-threading, collections and other features that Java provides. In esssence, the project was full of architectural, security and performance flaws. I should've kept a closer eye on the code myself but wasn't able to because of other committments

    Now what I wanna know is if any of you have had a successful outsourcing experience where the offshore team actually followed correct architectural practices. If so, please tell me how you went about finding your vendor. Also I would appreciate if you can recommend a few high quality vendors to me. I don't have the budget to afford developers in the americas and europe but please do let me know if you know of any good development firms/ developers in asia.


    Thanks

    Hey Nitin,

    Came across your post very late,but anyways sorry to hear about the bitter experiences you've had with software vendors based out of Asia pacific continent.There are few checklists which you would always need to follow while giving out your project w.r.t Domain ,Technology expertise , Skillset,past experience and Professional References of course.

    We as an org always believe in word of mouth publicity and believe me we've got good amount of references when it comes to execution of projects.We've been running ODC centres for many of our projects based out of USA.

    Let me know if you would like to talk further in professional capacity on the same in the near future.


    Thanks

    Hi NITIN,

    Well I am deeply sorry for the ordeal you guys went through from the outsourcing experience. But, the thing is accidents do happen, chances are there are many areas where you failed to take stock of certain parameters before embarking on choosing a partner. Things usually go wrong when expectations are not set. While the reasons might be endless from Collaboration to expertise, one has to have an evaluation criteria for selecting a reliable vendor. No Marketing Tie in here, but I can share some nice tips that our senior architect Srikanth(Head of Java Center of Excellence at Trigent) advise young project managers while handling offshore projects. here are some key steps you can work on while addressing time difference issue with your offshore partners

    - Know your team – This is the most important first step in any collaborative development. This can be achieved in many ways.
    - Have onsite team members visit offshore facility or vice versa
    - Have video conferencing calls
    - Share photos / pictures of the team members
    - Have daily meetings – Meetings with onsite team daily will make the team understand what each member is doing
    - Collaborative design – Offshore team work together with onsite team members in designing the application. To beat the time difference the offshore team can work extended hours during design phase
    - Pair programming – This can be achieved by having an offshore team member & an onsite team member both work on the same module.
