Finding a way to objectively measure and compare the performance of development outsourcers has long been a holy grail for IT executives
Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 2, 2009
SourceIQ, provider of the industry's premier platform for delivering development intelligence to management, today announced a services partnership with Clarity Consulting, a leading provider of Information Technology (IT) management consulting, to offer a service that assesses the performance of development outsourcing partners.
"Finding a way to objectively measure and compare the performance of development outsourcers has long been a holy grail for IT executives" said Ian Hayes, President of Clarity Consulting. "We launched OutSourceIQ to arm executives with understandable and actionable metrics that enable them to ensure development budgets are spent wisely, and with the most effective partners."
Combining critical metrics from SourceIQ Enterprise Server with Clarity Consulting's expertise in the complex issues of outsourcing, this new service offering gives development managers increased visibility into their outsourcing partners' productivity, code quality and personnel skill levels via an objective assessment and monitoring process. This information gives IT executives leverage to improve performance, strengthen and enforce service level commitments, and gain advantage in price negotiations.
"The demands placed on software development executives are increasingly complex. Companies are being asked to do more with less, which requires a more open, transparent approach to working with their outsourcing partners." said Charles Hubbard, Vice President of Global Delivery for SourceIQ. "The combination of SourceIQ's governance metrics with Clarity Consulting's extensive outsourcing management and process expertise enables us to quantify performance and identify areas requiring immediate attention and remediation. With OutSourceIQ, our customers gain a repeatable and low overhead approach for monitoring outsourcer performance on an ongoing basis."
OutSourceIQ is available immediately. For more information on OutSourceIQ package options and pricing, please contact Charlie Hubbard at (603) 766-4929.
