Project Management is the discipline of organizing and managing resources in such a way that these resources deliver all the work required to complete a project within defined scope, time, and cost constraints. A project is a temporary and one-time endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service. This property of being a temporary and a one-time undertaking contrasts with processes, or operations, which are permanent or semi-permanent ongoing functional work to create the same product or service over-and-over again.

But for North American companies, outsourcing development of business-critical applications has proven problematic when working with developers so far removed from headquarters-based IT departments and those organizations’ user bases. Companies in the U.S., Canada and Mexico have been looking for “near-sourcing” partners that can meet – or even exceed – the technical benefits provided by outsourcing firms in other parts of the world, while delivering other tangible and intangible benefits. Here are three reasons why a near-sourcing strategy for applications development can make sense for your North American organization.
