Why do you need an analyst in outsourcing development? What does he/she do and what tools does he/she use? It would seem that the answer is obvious. We all know what an analyst in a team should do from books, articles, courses, and personal experience. However, not all so simple.
Most resources focus on analytics within businesses or product teams, but does this apply to custom development?
A look at familiar (it would seem) things from a different angle allows us to understand how an analyst should work in an outsourcing team:
- what tools to use or not and why;
- where you can develop inside the outsourcing;
- global values and thinking model of an outsourcing analyst.
