Will using pictures to specify software requirements open up more offshore destinations?

Deloitte says that using requirement visualisation tools in software development will save billions. Basically this is using interactive images to create a pilot of how an application will look and feel to the user.

Rather than using text to explain you use pictures. Text is open to interpretation and ambiguous, using pictures and a system that can create prototypes will overcome communication problems, says Deloitte.

Will this open up software development to other offshore locations?

India is so successful serving the UK and US because English is a commonly spoken language. One of the question marks over locations like China and Brazil is, whether there is enough English spoken.

When specifying requirements it is vital that the code writer understands what the business wants.

So by doing it in pictures can support, for example, software development for UK businesses from China.

It also helps businesspeople understand what they actually want.
