There is often a need for additional skilled developers to meet the peak resource requirements of a project. Ether Solutions has skilled staff available to undertake these short-term development activities as well as being able to offer longer term services.
The initial thought for many project managers is Contractors (See definition below). This can of course be the appropriate answer but Ether Solutions believes that there are other options which could be considered.
Obtaining Contractors for a project will require the utilisation of one or more agencies to find the individuals. Their skills and suitability for the project need to be determined. For many large organisations, the HR and procurement processes will mean that the contractor is assigned for 3 to 6 months on a full-time basis working as part of the team for the project manager at the organisations site.
Ether Solutions recognises that due to preferred supplier” relationships and the established contacts of many agencies, Ether Solutions needs to be flexible in how it delivers services to clients. Ether Solutions has skilled staff with WebCenter knowledge who are available to undertake these short-term development Contractor activities, working via agencies where required.
Ether Solutions is able to provide a range of other options for development activities, from complete project teams to long-term skilled developers working at client locations, to a low-cost development capability which is achieved through Ether Solutions staff and its pool of "Home Workers". This flexible arrangement offers access to a wide range of skills that can be drawn upon to a variety of development scenarios.
Ether Solutions flexible approach can allow a more effect usage of the client budget by engaging:
- A consultant for 3 or 4 days per week (maximising impact)
- A consultant working remotely for 80% of the activity (saving onsite costs)
- Work being packaged into defined deliverable units (e.g. 10 man days) which can be created off-site
