As opposed to some offshore development companies, who work primarily on a project-by-project basis, Cayuga focuses on creating dedicated Offshore Development Teams (ODTs) that act as extensions of clients’ onshore software development operations. This enables the ODTs to focus on learning the clients’ systems, their businesses, and their development processes in order to become high-performing, cost-effective contributors for clients over the long run.
Cayuga was founded by professionals with years of experience in developing software with both onshore and offshore resources. The company’s CEO, Mike Sadowski, was for many years the CTO of a venture-backed company in the USA, where he managed a large software development and support team with two locations in Ukraine. The company’s COO, Eugene Polyansky, has managed software development teams for fifteen years.
In announcing Cayuga’s launch, Sadowski said: “Despite the popularity of offshore development, a lot of companies in the US have struggled to get it to work. Meanwhile, there are plenty of other US companies who’ve made it work very well. The successful companies typically use dedicated offshore development teams, working hand-in-hand with onshore staff, and Agile development processes. Implementing this isn’t easy—there will be process challenges, and people challenges. But these are exactly the kinds of challenges that we know how to overcome, based on our long experience in getting mixed onshore-offshore teams to function. So if your company has struggled to get offshore development to work in the past, we’d love to talk with you.”
In addition to dedicated Offshore Development Teams, Cayuga also provides QA outsourcing services, and offshore production support services, in order to allow clients to extend support to off-hours or to reduce costs on routine support tasks.
