Companies looking for the latest information on outsourcing software development will soon be able to refer to a revised version of Accelerance CEO Steve Mezak’s popular book, “Software without Borders.” Mezak has posted a substantial excerpt of the first chapter on the new book’s website and makes unique use of social media to seek comments from the software development community.
Mezak wrote “Software without Borders” as a compilation of the knowledge he had gathered in founding Accelerance and growing the firm into the global software outsourcing authority. Several years after its release, the book stands as the only such resource that fully addresses the intricacies of the software outsourcing process.
“There are many books available on the broader topic of IT outsourcing, but they focus mostly on general areas such as help desk support and managed services for networks and servers,” says Mezak. “They also tend to emphasize looking to India for the cheapest possible resources. By contrast, ‘Software without Borders’ takes a more holistic approach by describing how companies can expand their horizons to find not only the lowest costs, but also the exact right development talent around the globe.”
The new version of “Software without Borders” will have new chapters on fostering innovation, software quality assurance, and risk management. Mezak invites readers to review each sample chapter and provide their feedback and suggestions.
“Much in keeping with modern software development trends, we’re writing the revised edition of this book in agile fashion,” Mezak explains. “That means we’ll incorporate readers’ comments about topics they’d like to see covered, and we’ll release new chapters as they’re completed.”
Mezak urges readers to visit the book’s website and watch a video to learn more about the project. In anticipation of the release of the revised version, Mezak has reduced the price of the hardcover first edition from $39.99 to $11.49. Readers who purchase the first edition now will also receive a special offer for upgrading to the new edition when it is completed.
“We’re trying to get this book into as many hands as possible, because if you’re not outsourcing software development nowadays, you’re operating at a distinct disadvantage,” Mezak concludes. “Of course, there’s a right way and a wrong way to outsource, so we urge everyone to start benefiting from Accelerance’s years of leadership by visiting the ‘Software without Borders’ website.”
