Delivery as a Service (DAAS)

Delivery as a Service- A number of clients needed a reasonably defined chunk of project management or business analysis work done - but the nature of these needs was such that bringing on full time hires or contractors would’ve been overkill and bad use of funds.  Many IT projects have a couple weeks of intense effort followed by weeks of waiting, and DaaS is a great, cost effective way to manage that.  We use our in-house team (who can work on multiple projects at once) to deliver to your organisation's needs.   In one example - there was a case where up to 3 people were on the job for key stretches to meet certain deadlines - but the overall cost to the client was still less than hiring a single contractor for the duration.
