Global Outsourcing with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team System
In this era of globalization, outsourcing has emerged as a key strategy for not only competitive advantage but for survival. Despite widespread adoption, there are a scarce number of practical outsourcing guidelines on the market. Global Outsourcing with Visual Studio 2005 provides real-life, battle-tested guidelines and a metrics-driven process that teaches managers, developers, and engineers how to successfully implement outsourcing in their companies. Providing best practices guidelines based upon empirical experiences and case studies from leading practitioners in the outsourcing industry, the book shows the best way to construct a result-oriented delivery process that can mitigate execution risk, improve quality, and increase efficiency. In addition, the book shows how to leverage Microsoft tools from Visual Studio 2005 such as Team System, Office, BizTalk, Sharepoint Services, and EPM to implement this delivery process. Team leads and developers will learn about effective source code management when working with globally distributed teams and specific guidelines are provided for versioning, code review, build process, and integration. Global Outsourcing with Visual Studio 2005 is an essential IT reference as companies become geographically independent in terms of operations, sourcing, and marketing.
