"The Onshoring of IT Services"

Defining Domestic Sourcing's True Value Proposition

The Collaborative Model

Onshore Delivery, Competitive Costs

Delivering IT services in an on-shore model can provide significant advantages, especially when the effort requires close communication, collaboration, business understanding and speed to market. At the same time, keeping costs low is critical, making major-metro consulting too expensive for these projects. Enter Collaborative Consulting and the CDSC. Often called onshoring, rural sourcing and other names, domestic sourcing provides a unique delivery model where skilled IT resources in favorable US geographies are deployed with traditional onsite IT consultants to deliver superior outcomes with competitive pricing. Located no more than two time zones away from any continental US location, the CDSC is able to tackle jobs that require tight collaboration, immediate and concise communication, sensitive timelines, business understanding, and superior quality that is difficult to accomplish in other models.

Example initiatives where the CDSC is a must:

  • Agile methodology projects
  • Business  Intelligence
  • Test case development and automation
  • Collaborative test execution

Any project where:

  • High quality is critical
  • Delivery timeline is tight
  • Business collaboration is required
  • Project risk runs high
