The business environment around us is constantly changing. Nowadays many businesses even hire professional software and web developers, so that they can fetch help in developing software which can reduce the manual work load. And when talking about website,software developers are the most primary demand of all those who are entering into business. But at the same time, delay in the development of website or software is also becoming very common. The primary reason behind it is the excess work load software companies have to handle today due to the increased market and less number of employees.

 Software Development delay is gradually becoming a big problem. Opening a Software development firm is the easiest way. People start with minimum employees and, in order to grab a hold over the market, they start with more projects.Projects also get delayed when they are being drifted in a wrong direction. Developers often commit this mistake. They start working just after one or two meetings with the client and after those meetings they directly meet them at the end, this creates the communication gap and thus stops the information flow creating a grudge within.

This all can be avoided very easily with the help of SDLC (Software development life cycle) process. This cycle suggests the developer to consult his client every now and then to check if the software they are developing is as per their requirements. In fact developing a prototype and keeping it in front of the client before developing the full version of the software is a much better idea, and even save the developers’ time and efforts.

Even in case, when you do not want to follow the whole cycle, just work on developing the prototype.  The best method through which you can avoid the delays is by undergoing thorough pre planned discussions and fixing the target in front of your team. You can even keep some expert review sessions.This will help you to know the pros and corns of your product. The team leader may also take suggestions from their team members, as sometimes the team members come up with excellent ideas. It is very important that you should check all the things before handing over the product to the client. Mistakes still persist to exist, for we are humans. Repetitive development should be followed in this case which helps in correcting the mistakes at early stages of development.

The Ukraine offers highly skilled IT specialists at a low cost for companies looking to develop projects within Europe. But while the honesty of its people appears to be a key selling point, problems of corruption and the possibility of social unrest remain.

When UK companies consider the option of offshoring, India tends to be the first port of call, due to its technical expertise and the cultural ties between the two countries. But that could be changing, with nearshore locations such as the Ukraine vying for a share of the market.

Figures from the Ukrainian Hi-Tech Initiative, the country's outsourcing software development alliance, reveal the Ukraine's outsourcing industry is estimated to have grown by 20% in 2010.

Pros and cons of outsourcing in the Ukraine

Max Ishenko, founder of an online community for the country's developers, says the Ukraine previously had a large number of programmers but relatively low domestic demand for them.

Ishenko is frank about the pros of cons of outsourcing in the Ukraine. "One of the problems we have is English skills, which on average are quite poor. Also, people can often be stubborn, although in a good way. If they are given a task that is wrong, they will argue with you and say it is a short-sighted thing to do, but it means people are thinking before doing. The other good thing is that programmers usually have a good education in maths or physics so they can often tackle problems that are technically complicated."

Christophe Lemoine, chief technology officer at UK-based mobile application company Chartsnow, outsourced its development work to the Ukraine several years ago, and agrees that a collaborative approach is the only way to succeed. Lemoine spends around 70% of his time in the country overseeing project work.

"Originally I was completely against the idea of going out of Switzerland [where I was based at the time], as I'd heard so many stories about projects going wrong. But as the company was starting up, nearshoring provided the best value for money with our limited resources."

Lemoine says he decided against developing in Asia because he wanted people who shared a similar culture and were based nearby. Instead he opted for the Ukraine. "Including transport costs, we spend nearly half of what we would back home for these services," he said.


Contemporary world is developing so fast that things just can’t be the same due to technological advancements of all spheres of life. Globalization influences all professional fields as well as business world. Today business projects are managed and controlled with the help of telecommunication means that make it simple to do everyday business tasks fast. The most effective and quality contemporary decision is a virtual team and it is one of the most effective ways to develop business.

What Is a Virtual Team and How It Can Help in Your Business?

Virtual teams consist of the employees that are professionals working for your company. The main peculiarity is that your employees can work in the comfort of their homes.

Employees just need to log on to the business website and work online. They implement their functions concerning particular business projects through online collaboration.

Virtual teams successfully collaborate online and show perfect working results. Such an option became a necessity mainly for those companies that hire professionals all over the world.


How to Manage Your Virtual Team?

Every virtual team should be managed properly to show perfect and constructive results and accomplishments.  Building confidence and trust within the virtual team is the key that lead your business to the top. The task is to create effective and beneficial interaction inside the virtual team to work fast and efficiently.

So How to Manage the Process of Building Virtual Teams Properly?

1. Individual interaction with every employee to build the trust and mutual understanding between the manager and executive. Inspiration is very vital to make the employee feel he or she is a part of a serious and benevolent team that is interested in mutual success and prosperity.

The next holiday season will be here before we know it, so here are the top five must-have e-commerce features that retailers need to grow their business.
Superior website and web application performance, and a true understanding of the end-user perspective are a common thread among all of them. Performance and load testing will also play a big role in ensuring websites and applications are running optimally heading into the holiday season.

1. Mobile Optimization: According to Adobe’s Digital Index, over the past two years, mobile page views as a percentage of retailer website traffic have steadily increased, but conversions have been going down. This isn’t all that surprising, because mobile site visits tend to not be terribly engaging sessions.
Your mobile commerce might not yet have a significant correlation to conversions or revenue, but it is critical to ongoing customer loyalty. Given the dramatic growth in mobile commerce traffic – perhaps the first interaction with a potential customer – the experience has to be perfect. This is the key to keeping visitors on your mobile site now, or driving them to a desktop site later when they actually decide to buy. Retailers need to ensure they’re delivering exceptional mobile web experiences across the devices and browsers most frequently used by visitors.

2. Seamless Transactions: Retailers must optimize the speed and reliability of business-critical transactions like check-out, especially during times of peak load. Testing a complete end-to-end check-out process requires “gluing together” a number of disparate processes and third-party providers (like shopping carts) into a single seamless transaction. This is known as testing the complete web application delivery chain, and it can present challenges as end-to-end use cases can be difficult to test with standard tools.
Retailers need an approach to performance and load testing that actually tests the system as end users will experience it. Testing from outside the firewall is the only way to get a true read on the performance of third-party services and an entire end-to-end application.

3. As Much Free Shipping As You Can Afford: Upgrading delivery options or offering free delivery is another approach for perceived end-user value. But frequent changes to delivery options beg the question: how often are we going to change and how are we going to manage the ongoing testing and performance requirements? Performance tools need to support dynamically changing environments and accurately test and measure performance without complex, time-consuming scripting.

4. Product Page Excellence: Retailers must strive to offer the richest, best-in-class product detail pages. Increasingly, this will mean leveraging third-party services like product tours, product demos and even video. Retailers will need to make sure all these third-parties are performing optimally, which again requires an understanding of the true end-user perspective. Performance testing tools must be able to follow the path a transaction takes and find out where slow-downs are occurring. This provides necessary proof and helps all parties, including third-party vendors, to better understand opportunities for optimization.

5. Ongoing, 24x7x365 Data Showing When Your Site Performance is Less than Superior: By now, we understand the importance of website and web application performance. Some retailers are going a step further by looking for occasions when a customer experience may not be up to standards, and then proactively refunding customers. Retailers need automated systems that can detect when performance falls below pre-defined thresholds. This is the key to enabling this value-add feature, and the larger goal of finding and fixing performance problems before customers do.
Features such as those listed above will help retailers stand out this holiday season. But realizing value from these features depends on a commitment to high-performance, which in turn depends on a true understanding of the end-user perspective. Ultimately, having all the greatest features in the world will mean little if performance is sub-par, or if you can’t accurately measure performance across the complete application delivery chain.
