The 24-Hour Knowledge Factory is a service oriented architecture model that goes beyond the conventional global delivery model. It involves round-the-clock operations through the establishment of three or more development teams around the globe. Complex projects are iteratively broken down into simpler modules, with each "composite persona" (CP) being responsible for one such model. Developers around the globe only work during their regular day hours; unfinished work is handed off to the next CP driver. The 24-Hour Knowledge Factory concept brings together business processes and IT services to provide a new services computing solution.
