Event Description:

Rural Sourcing - Powered by NC, NC Higher Ed, and RadixBay
How
the state of NC & NC Higher Education supports NC businesses in Innovative Job Creating Initiatives.

RadixBay is challenging the status quo and stale IT consulting delivery model. Working with NC based schools: UNC Pembroke, UNC Wilmington, Southeastern Community College, Sandhills Community College, RadixBay identifies, hires, trains these aspiring IT professionals and centrally manages them from the RadixBay Rural Development Center. Once assigned to a client, these Rural IT Consultants work on various IT consulting engagements, delivering significant business value.

The Rural Development Center rates are comparable to those of their Offshore counterparts, however since they are in close proximity (<3 hour drive from all NC based customers) they can be onsite on a frequent and regular basis. As the US continues to pull away from offshore resourcing, due to regulatory/compliance, social and various other reasons, the RadixBay Rural Delivery model gives clients a viable and attractive IT solution delivery platform.
