Augmenting our client’s existing in-house team with a team extension of nearshored software developers to ensure a stable workforce can be a challenge. How to hold ingrained procedures like stand-up meetings when one developer is 1000km away? How to ensure that he understands the wishes and needs of the business owners when it is not possible to talk face to face ?
As the lack of experienced resources became a constraint for business it is important for more and more companies to understand how to set up global teams efficiently. With 20 years of IT outsourcing experiences K&C learned many pitfalls and how to overcome them. We have implemented German management standards and Agile processes across all K&C branches. And we make sure that every project starts with a well-planned and intensive onboarding. As a result, the integration of K&C developers into in-house teams works seamlessly.
Our client is Valiton – a German IT service provider of a large media holding based in Offenburg and Munich. The developers of K&C have worked on the single sign on solution of our partner which is called harbourmaster. The goal of the project is to analyze user behaviour in media portals and thus the solution enables Harbourmaster tenants to approach their clients with relevant and specific offers.
