There are a number of reasons that companies outsource their software development. You want to take advantage of lower operational and labor costs. You want to focus your resources on building your core competency—the very thing that you are best at. You want to get things done faster to beat your competitors. In today’s world, if you want to get all the benefits of outsourcing your tech compartments, you will most likely have to offshore to tap in the vast pool of talent in countries like India or China.
Challenges of Outsourcing
Outsourcing has its challenges. You still need someone internally to communicate with your partner and provide direction. Yet you may still feel less in control of the project. Offshoring presents even more challenges. Cultural and language barriers are just the beginning. The time zone difference becomes more and more burdensome than you first thought.
After you go through that painful process, you finally get your product. Wait, you spent money and time and you got something in return, but it’s not what you had in mind. 66% of technology projects end in partial or total failure. Your software is written, but it’s not used. Or you got what you ordered and it’s working fine, but the whole outsourcing process was such an ordeal and you never want to do it again.
So how can you get the benefits of outsourcing while mitigating the challenges of outsourcing?
