He works along the founder to do EVERYTHING. Many startups in an early stage look like this and founder feels the need of hiring another developer to help CTO. This means you need to start looking for the RIGHT developer for your product and that is not your work. It will take a lot of time. Just leave it to outsourcing team and you’ll have plenty of time to focus on much essential task for your business. WWW.D8II.COM
  3. 3. OUTSOURCING THE RIGHT SKILLSET 2 Instead of hiring in-house developer, startups can have an option to outsource certain parts of a project until it is completed. Offshore outsourcing can provide companies to fill in gaps and provide skill-set they need, for much less cost rather than hiring an in-house programmer. Seeking the right skill-set for your program developer is tough. You might find yourself having few options to do the work for you because only few of them is expert on it. WWW.D8II.COM PRO
  4. 4. 3 Most of offshore software development outsourcing companies utilize Agile and Kanban strategies. They focus on small and expert teams that work together as a whole. Having a small team that solely focus on your project or developing your software makes the work faster and this translate that you can launch it immediately to production. They are extremely efficient because team members challenge one another and keep up the pace. SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT OUTSOURCING WILL SPEED UP PRODUCTION PRO WWW.D8II.COM

  6. 6. RISK OF CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY THREAT1 CON Yes. There is always a risk involved. Unfortunately and mainly, because you expose confidential company information to a third party. You have to build a trust with outsourcing company. Today, more and more offshore companies offer a free consultation to discuss your needs and most importantly gain your trust. WWW.D8II.COM
  7. 7. LACK OF COMMUNICATION AND TIME DIFFERENCE2 Nowadays, lack of communication is one of the challenges for outsourcing your software development team. When you outsource some of your project being clear upfront of what your goal is a MUST. Also you need to communicate with them often and this can be done by setting up a daily or weekly meeting with them. Both parties needs to know the expectation on each side before hand. Other than this factor, there are many outsourcing companies all around the world which means they have different language , culture and mindset. CON WWW.D8II.COM
  8. 8. 3NEED OF CONSTANT MANAGEMENT First thing you need to keep in mind is that when you outsource, there is a need to establish on how they can provide you updates like improvement, challenges and timeline for your project. Therefore, you need to ensure that they have a manager that will constantly provide you the updates and knows how communicate well with you. He also needs to manage each day to make sure his team understands the requirement of the project or deliver their task correctly. But good outsourcing offshore company understands the difficulty. The good one will manage their own daily to report you back so you don’t have to check in everyday. CON WWW.D8II.COM
  9. 9. QUALITY OF FINAL PRODUCT CON 4 After all, what really counts is the quality of final product. This is one important thing you need to have in mind when choosing the company to go to for outsourcing your project, do they have a good reputation or track record for this specific work you want them to do. Take a look at their portfolio and previous clients. Do you think they are the expert that can do the job for you and perfectly execute your project or product? The only way you can assure is to review multiple times their portfolio or previous work and have they done a similar project as yours. WWW.D8II.COM
