- Co-located multi-disciplinary agile teams for higher efficiencies
A POD is an empowered, autonomous unit that takes end-to-end responsibility of product development. It is self-sufficient in terms of tools and technologies, and can easily scale across geographies. Transparency is a key principle and the team believes in open communication. POD is composed of seasoned individuals with a product mindset and aligned to a startup culture.
- Continuous involvement & review from customer & business
POD works on the principle of co-creation with continuous involvement of the customer. Iterative development and frequent demos result in reduced re-work and sustained focus on high-value, high-priority requirements. The end-result is a higher-quality product and increased customer satisfaction.
- Adaptive v/s Predictive Planning
POD has the ability to adapt to rapidly changing market needs and possesses a very high engineering rigor. Product requirements are progressively discovered and met in short development cycles.
Automation is one of the core principles of POD. The team is proficient in low-code practices and usage of rapid product engineering tools and toolchains.
PODs have expertise in cloud scale architectures and best-in-class engineering tools & practices. They are available on demand and capable of horizontal scaling / de-scaling across geographies. They utilize custom solution accelerators & re-usable components leading to a significant reduction in product development efforts.
POD follows adaptive planning to respond to rapidly changing customer needs; requirements are progressively discovered, prioritized, and realized in short development cycles. This allows for continuous involvement and review by the customer and business for quick alignment and decision making.
The engagement model is transparent and follows no-shoring, with short SOW cycles and simple pricing - per POD per sprint on meeting agreed sprint outcomes.
The motto of Product POD is to provide an on-demand, seasoned, agile product engineering capability at scale, to enable delivery of software quickly, reliably, and safely. Product POD aims to reduce time-to-market, increase engineering maturity, and enable innovation. It features multi-disciplinary, self-sufficient Agile teams geared to build complex software up to 40% faster. Powered by the Engineering DNA of Industrial & Engineering Services (IES), Product POD will be a game-changer for Hyper-growth start-ups, ISVs and new-age enterprises.
