    Software Expert

    United Kingdom - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 9

    Thank you for reviewing my oDesk resume. I specialize in managing outsourced projects from start to end. I have over 20 years of experience in the IT Outsourcing industry, beginning with programming, progressing to project management and finally business analysis. Apart from general software development, I am an expert in BACnet configuration and programming and SAML2 single signon systems. My expertize includes technical documentation: Functional Specification, Software Requirement Specification, Software Design Specification, Project Plan, Test Plan, Workflow Design and Analysis, etc. I am also an expert in drawing up Statements of Work (SOW) and Contracts/Agreements. As a long-time programmer, I have expertize in various programming and scripting languages, allowing me to manage both desktop applications and web development for commercial, engineering and cad/cam applications. DOCUMENTATION: - Contract/Agreement - Statement of Work (SOW) - Functional Specification - Software Requirement Specification - Software Design Specification - Project Plan - Test Plans/TestCases/Acceptance Criteria - Workflow Design and Analysis PROGRAMMING: - VB6, C++, C#, .NET - FileMaker Pro - SQL (MS-Access, MS-SQL, mySQL) - Joomla, Drupal and other CMS systems - Web 2.0, PHP, Perl, HTML, AJAX, ASP - Dreamweaver, Frontpage, Photoshop, etc. - Legacy languages: Cobol, Fortran, Pascal, PL/1, RPG, Assembler, dBase INDUSTRIES: - Healthcare in the United States (EMR, PM, HL7, HIPAA, etc.) - E-Commerce for various industries - Education (online teaching and school management) MAXIMIZING THE OFFSHORE ADVANTAGE: I have tried and tested teams available in India and Pakistan whom I use on all of my projects. Hailing from that part of the world, I am able to leverage my knowledge of their culture and thus get them to work at maximum performance. I *know* what makes them click! The savings of offshore resources are, of course, passed on to you... PRICING MODEL: I have a 2-tier pricing model. Local UK resources are priced at US$20 to $60 depending upon expertise level, while offshore resources are $10 to $25. The offshore component is generally 80 to 90% of total effort therefore overall rate is closer to $15-$20. That provides you the advantage of low-cost offshore resources without the risk of being burnt by fly-by-night operations. Thank you for reviewing my resume. I look forward to working for you.
