Remote Software Development During COVID-19 Pandemic

Remote Software Development during COVID-19 Pandemic

No companies are prepared for COVID-19 outbreak.

When the earliest cases of the novel coronavirus were found December last year, no one could have predicted that the pandemic will lead us to the environment we are currently living and working in, and that the situation will escalate so quickly in just a few months.

The implementation of PSBB or Pembatasan Sosial Berskala Besar (Large-scale Social Restrictions) and strong encouragement of work from home policies has caused businesses from accross different sectors to falters, resulting in economic disruption that has caused more than 2 millions of Indonesian workers being laid off and placed on furlough.

With the vaccine has yet to be found, social distancing may remain in place for a longer time. Harvard Researchers even predicted that in US, intermittent distancing may be required into 2022 unless a treatment or vaccine becomes available. Given examples of South Korea and Singapore, effective distancing is essentials because it could reduce the strain on health care systems and enable contact tracing and quarantine to be feasible.

Wearing a facemask, social distancing and frequent hand-washing will become parts of the ‘new normal’ from now on, said the head of the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPD) who is also the head of the National COVID-19 Task Force.

However, prolonged distancing may have negative economic consequences that will lead to a global recession, where 1.1 million to 3.78 million of Indonesian people could fall into poverty, and 2.9 million to 5.2 million workers could lose their jobs.

To keep your business afloat and recover from the impact caused by the corona virus pandemic, it is important to ensure that everyone is healthy and productive. In the past few months, many businesses has undergone digital transformation and incorporate new technologies and strategies as a way to remain productive and effective under highly challenging circumstances.

As one of the leading system integrator in Indonesia, BTS.id is ready to support your IT needs for digital transformation in two ways:

 

1. Project-Based

In a project-based model, a dedicated team is assigned to handle the whole process of a project, from the beginning to the end. The team may consist of people with all of the skills required to take care of the project, such as software developers, UI/UX designers, software testers, project managers, etc. Usually, one team will focus on managing no more than two projects at the same time, making it a suitable option for companies with no internal IT team.

By adopting this model, you will be able to bring together people with different skillsets at a more reasonable cost. Furthermore, with the team focus on less deliverable, they can also be more productive and less distracted, which is crucial for the success of the project.

 

2. Team-based Outsourcing

With a team-based outsourcing, you are the one who manage the project. A distributed team or personnel will contribute to your projects, which can be two or more at the same time. Unlike the project-based outsourcing, this outsourcing model allows you to hire both a specific team member and a full, complete team. Whether it is just a developer, UI/UX designer, or a software tester, you can hire only the people you need for your projects.

The team-based outsourcing model allows the team members to switch from one task to another across multiple projects, therefore more agile and flexible. As an additional support, this solution is recommended for companies that already have their own in-house IT team.
