In its simplest description, outsourcing is the contracting out of a business function to an external supplier, involving the transfer of the responsibility of people, processes, products and required assets, such as software frameworks or building materials, to deliver a specific function or product. This consulting model can be undertaken either on-shore or off-shore, and is there to relieve the stress on the company outsourcing the specific requirement.
Etheria outsource model is based on a departmental initiative where we take on the complete departmental function, a company within a company type of structure, which allows us to function independently from the normal internal politics of a company. Normally companies seek-out outsourcing because they cannot function internally or there isn’t an interest or capability to hold a function internally in the company itself.
We provide the, as above, the department model allowing the customer to request us to sit outside the main functions of the company and provide our own structure, so management, support, process, engineering, architecture and testing. So we become a complete department isolated for the politics and restraints of the customer. We also take complete responsibility for the delivery from the customer management.
