Application developer talent: Time to play moneyball

Michael Rosenbaum, founder and CEO of Catalyst IT Services, thinks software development could be quantified in a way akin to the moneyball tactics in baseball.

Rosenbaum’s company rounds up teams of developments for rapid deployment where enterprises need to be aligned with the business and move in a hurry. Catalyst can deliver teams of developers within 24 hours and is often used for high-value projects.

At the Gartner Symposium ITXpo, Catalyst and Nike presented a case study highlighting how team selection can boost the metrics and returns of application development. Catalyst teams worked on the technology for Nike’s Fuel Band as well mobile applications, APIs for partners and a unified e-commerce and Web experience.
