Off-Shore Product Development
Outsourced Product Development (OPD, for short) is a form of outsourcing where product engineering services are outsourced in the creation of a software product. Off-shore product development is where these services are carried out in a different country than where the client is located. Offshore Product Development is a growing phenomenon considering the proven benefits of outsourcing/off-shoring. Global advances in telecommunication facilities have contributed to the wide acceptance and rapid growth of remote working.
Typically, the services outsourced are: research and innovation, new product development, product strategy and architecture, end-to-end product development, product maintenance, testing services, internationalization services, product support and professional services. Advantages such as access to a large pool of talented resources, maturity of software engineering processes, sophisticated understanding of the off-shoring paradigm make India a favored destination for outsourced/off-shore product development.
