Dedicated team model is a model of software development, where software engineers work on a client’s project exclusively, for a long period of time. This means hiring the professionals of your choice that you need to carry out the tasks you normally can’t (or don’t want to) in-house.
Dedicated team model is one of the three most popular types of client and developer collaborations, the other two being time and material(T & M) and fixed price(FP) models. Dedicated team becomes the extension of your internal team, and their cooperation works in the interest of the company and the client. The outsourcing vendor is responsible for the selections of the dedicated team’s professionals and the administrative support division of the team.
The dedicated team in the mobile app development industry can include people from following domains:
Web design and back end developers, including cross platform platforms.
quality assurance engineers
UI/UX design team
project managers, and others
At first, the outsourcing team or the outsourcing vendor acts as a mediator between the dedicated team for the in house mobile app development team. But with time the relationship is improved and possible creativity and innovation in the field of mobile app development can follow. The outsourcing vendor charges a fee called the vendor fee which is to be supplied by the client for the dedicated development model to work.
As one can imagine, the dedicated development team can greatly enhance the productivity of the company. We shall now see the advantages and disadvantages of the dedicated development model in the field of mobile app development in great detail
Any mobile app development company can benefit from the advantages of a dedicated team. Dedicated development teams can consist of many experts in the domain of many software development departments.
Following are some of the advantages that come into view of the dedicated team model for mobile app development:
Large scale and long term mobile app development projects are best suited for dedicated team models. The expert communication reduces cost, increases accuracy and reduces the time taken to complete the project
Dedicated development team is involved in one mobile app development project, exclusively, at a particular time. This means the mobile app development project gets greater reviews from experts.it increases the accuracy of the project.
The internal mobile app development team becomes an extension of the dedicated team. They can then learn greatly from the project’s dedicated development team, since the dedicated team is composed of experts.
Flexibility is awarded to the client as you as the client will decide the scope and changes that must be made to your project. The dedicated team for your mobile app development project will act as your employees until the project is complete. Deadlines can be effectively communicated with the team.
The dedicated team model also gives all the more clarity when it comes to cost tracking. Clients are in these days required to usually pay the dedicated team monthly. The payment consists of the vendor fee plus the salaries of each dedicated development team member.
Here are some of the possible downsides if you choose dedicated development models for your mobile app development project
The dedicated team model becomes disadvantageous if the project is too small or the project itself can be managed by in-house developers easily. Then the extra cost of the dedicated team will affect the client and the company.
Since the dedicated team is not familiar with the work culture of the native company, lack of effective communication can hamper the collaboration of both the mobile app development teams.
The project must be able to work well in the market since the dedicated team model is one of the models which includes the extra vendor fee.
