    offshore software product development

    Software Product Development has obtained an edge by Offshoring development services.  Offshoring such services increases the responsibility of Product management and Software Development. In order to ensure efficiency and feasibility of the processes and to deliver a customized product, testing and quality assurance checks are conducted. Apart from testing an important task is often overlooked, that is, documentation of software design for future maintenance and enhancement. What are the other aspects in Offshore Software Product Development that need attention in order to leverage quality and reduce time to market? Please suggest.

Second phase, first few installations at customer's location. This requires robust testing and documentation mentioned by you. It also required pieces of code (ready to use frameworks) to integrate with other applications in an IT ecosystem. Strong release management requires another set of tools and processes. Third phase, continuous support to existing customers, here "follow the sun" approach for technical support and professional services (increases response time to customers). Forth phase, End of life (this is pure cost saving - nothing to do with increasing quality or TTM.
