Ein-des-ein: How We are Changing the Software Development Outsourcing Game
Over the past few years, the software outsourcing industry has experienced a rapid transformation. With advancements in technology and changing business requirements, companies are increasingly relying on outsourcing to stay competitive and save costs. We are also observing the growing demand for specialized skills: as businesses seek to develop cutting-edge software, they require specific expertise in artificial intelligence, blockchain, VR, or machine learning and other innovations.
At Ein-des-ein, we are taking a fresh and bold approach to revolutionize the way businesses from around the world develop their digital products. Through this article, we explore how our agency is changing the game when it comes to outsourcing IT projects.
What Is Software Outsourcing?
SO is a process wherein businesses outsource the development and implementation of their software projects to external organizations. It is also used to gain access to specialized skillsets that may not be available internally.
It enables companies to focus on core activities while saving time, money, and energy that would otherwise have been spent developing the same product internally. SO also gives them access to professionals from around the world who would bring a fresh perspective and deliver higher-quality services. As a result, SO has become an increasingly popular way for companies of all sizes and industries to maintain or increase their competitive advantage.
The three most common SO models are:
It is the process of augmenting an internal team with external professionals to support various projects on a short or long-term basis. By choosing this model, you are able to customize your current staffing needs, quickly and cost-effectively. Additionally, the contractor can be tasked with multiple roles or areas of responsibility for shorter periods than in the Dedicated Team model.
In contrast, this model consists of forming a unit of specialists that are dedicated solely to one specific project (ideal for long-term ones, requiring deep knowledge as well as complex technological solutions). It also offers greater control over QA, delivery timelines and cost efficiencies due to leveraging mature processes and highly specialized resources.
This model focuses on delivering one specific product/service in a predetermined timeframe and budget. It is suitable for those who have limited budgets but require high quality results at a cost effective rate. The project’s scope is fixed and contract terms are established upfront giving full visibility into timeline & costs throughout the collaboration until completion.
Emerging outsourcing trends
As the industry continues to evolve, new trends are emerging that are shaping the industry.
Cloud-based services have made it easier for companies to outsource tasks to remote workers without having to worry about infrastructure or hardware requirements. This has led to an increase in the number of offshore development centers and a shift towards more distributed teams.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning
AI and ML have become critical components of modern software development. As a result, there is a growing demand for professionals with relevant expertise. Agencies are investing heavily in training and upskilling their employees to meet this demand.
Agile methodologies have become increasingly popular as they allow for greater flexibility and adaptability in project management. This has resulted in closer alignment between clients’ business goals and outsourced efforts.
DevOps integration is becoming more important as businesses seek faster delivery times and improved collaboration between development and operations teams. Development agencies are integrating DevOps practices into their processes to improve efficiency and reduce time-to-market.
Data security is a critical concern when working with remote specialists, especially when sensitive information is involved. Outsourcing firms are implementing robust security protocols to ensure data protection while also providing effective communication channels.
The rise of nearshoring
Nearshoring involves collaboration with agencies from nearby countries rather than distant ones, allowing for greater cultural similarity, language proficiency, and time zone alignment between client organizations and outsourced workforce.
Automation is becoming increasingly important as businesses seek ways to streamline processes and reduce costs associated with manual labor-intensive tasks like testing or deployment.
According to Statista research, revenue in the IT Outsourcing Segment is projected to reach USD 430,50 billion in 2023 and is expected to show an annual growth rate (CAGR 2023-2027) of 8.07%, resulting in a market volume of USD 587,30 billion by 2027.
How Software Outsourcing Helps CTOs And Product Managers Overcome Challenges
By leveraging the expertise of an external professionals, CTOs and PMs solve complex challenges such as enhancing system functionality, aligning technology with business objectives, reducing overhead costs, improving system operations, increasing the breadth of services offered and boosting customer experience. Additionally, SO enables CTOs to free up internal resources to focus on more strategic initiatives. Main advantages here include:
Access to a larger talent pool
CTOs and PMs access a larger pool of specialized skills which they otherwise wouldn’t have in-house. This means that the technical team can be expanded to include experts in various areas like UI/UX design, application architecture, database management, etc.
Outsourcing to countries with lower labor costs saves companies a significant amount of money. Plus, they don’t have to worry about overhead costs like rent, utilities, or office supplies. This results in significant savings, especially for smaller firms that don’t have a large budget for these expenses.
Fast turnaround times
Such specialists already have well-defined processes to ensure everything is completed quickly and on schedule. As a result, by leveraging these resources, businesses are able to rapidly make changes to existing systems or build out new ones as required by their objectives. Additionally, with a dedicated project manager overseeing operations, companies are able to monitor the current status in real-time and receive timely feedback from the remote unit.
Furthermore, SO allows companies to prioritize tasks quickly and efficiently according to changing requirements without any impact on turnaround times or deadline pressures.
Free consultation with a business analyst
Outsourced workforce provides the ability to quickly scale up or down without hiring full-time staff. This allows companies to rapidly expand or contract based on changes in market conditions and ever-changing customer demand, thus improving operational efficiency. Additionally, in this case, it’s easy for CTOs to step in and add new capabilities or skills as required by their business objectives.
Cases When Software Outsourcing Is Essential
There are three main scenarios when it is essential, let’s discuss their potential benefits!
The Growing Need for a Specific Tech Expertise
Bringing tech stack specialists on board is a great way to upgrade your current capabilities. Whether you need quality assurance testers, analysts, developers, project managers, or others with expertise in this area, tapping these experts helps you bring your idea to life faster and more efficiently. With the right mix of specialized skillsets, you get the right resources to build an advanced solution that meets all your requirements.
If An Entire Development Team is Required
When your current in-house unit is stretched to their limits or a new project may be too much to handle due to various reasons, hiring an entire dedicated team can be the perfect solution. Each phase requires different technical competencies, including PMs, UI/UX designers, QA specialists, and web/mobile developers depending on the product nature.
Setting up a dedicated team means that the development cycle moves faster. With well-defined roles and tasks spread across a team working together collaboratively rather than one individual multitasking, productivity goes through the roof – so you get your product delivered ASAP.
If you want to Modernize an Already Existing Product
The ever-changing technology landscape has made it imperative for companies to keep their applications and programs up-to-date in order to stay ahead of the curve. But updating existing software may be a daunting task, especially when the code is outdated or obsolete.
That’s where the benefits of hiring a development team come in. With their experience they will modernize your existing product quickly and efficiently while ensuring all safety protocols are being followed. They also understand the user experience trends and implement them so you get a more user-friendly solution.
By investing in professional developers for modernization purposes you not only ensure that your product remains relevant in today’s market but also have access to cutting edge technology skills in shorter time frames. This gives you an advantage over competitors who are spending longer times revamping their product manually.
