It’s 3 a.m. Do you know where your software is?

If your programming team is completely off-site, the answer is that your software may be thousands of miles away and in a relatively high-risk position because the differences in time, distance, culture and communication introduce levels of risk into the process.

If your team is in-house, then your software may be more secure at 3 a.m. but it also may be idle—and time is money.

The best answer to the 3 a.m. question is: the software is exactly where it should be. That means you have confidence that the team is moving the ball forward and the software is on track, on target, on budget, and market-focused.
