ENSYTE partners with EnSoft Professionals to deliver Outsourced Software Development and Testing Services
HOUSTON, TX (April 18, 2011) – ENSYTE Energy Software Int’l and EnSoft Professionals, located in Hyderabad, India now offer Outsourced Software Development and Testing Services to the oil and gas industry. Through this partnership, ENSYTE offers a tested and workable outsource process for converting fully functional legacy or specialty software to Microsoft’s latest Visual Studio and SQL Server or ORACLE RDBMS platforms.
In late 2009, ENSYTE and EnSoft entered into an agreement to perform a pilot conversion of its Microsoft Visual Basic v.6 application programs to Visual Studio under the Windows Presentation Framework. This pilot was completely successful and led ENSYTE to an agreement to fully convert its GASTAR Application to this new development environment and also build its Nomination and Scheduling Module in the Silverlight environment. In their almost two year affiliation, ENSYTE and EnSoft have formed valuable communication and project management tactics and are now partnering to offer these services to the broader oil and gas industry.
There are numerous successful outsourcing projects and there are an equal if not larger number of failures. The primary issues underlying failure are cultural communication barriers, lack of project control, and full development of specifications. With ENSYTE as the local content manager and EnSoft as the development manager, these hurdles have been met and mastered.
Current market trends replacing existing systems are to license a 3rd party application or rebuild using in-house and contract resources. The market for these services range on a broad scale to include companies that have leveraged the value of a fully-integrated solution; companies using older, outdated software solutions and/or spreadsheets; and still others who have used their own internal resources to create an enterprise-wide application that meets their specific needs. In essence, ENSYTE’s Outsourced Software Development & Testing Services caters to all three groups using the following platforms:
- Oracle v10 or Oracle v11
- Microsoft SQL Server R2 and related products
- Silverlight Internet Applications
- Java, J2EE Application Development
- SaaS and Cloud Competing including Microsoft Azure platform
- Mobile Applications for current smart phones and tablets
- Graphical Application Development
