|Software Development: the Outsourcing Perspective
While most of the software giants have moved their software development operations offshore, there are still companies considering software outsourcing as a risk they can’t afford. So maybe the hardest of all outsourcing challenges is attracting partners into an outsourcing experience and convincing them that the outsourcing partnership they’re about to enter is not a step into the unknown, but a journey into the future of software development.
Software Outsourcing: the New Power of Software Development
In the past few years, the development of IT as a whole led to the appearance of a new concept – Digital Divide – denoting the decisive advantage given by the presence of the IT infrastructure in a certain environment. In the software development sphere, the rapid growing of outsourcing as a business created a similar situation, as we now witness the birth of a new concept: Outsourcing Divide.
With the outsourcing boom, the way software development operations are conducted changed forever. If in the past outsourcing was an option seen mainly as a way of reducing costs, now it came to be the winner’s advantage in the software development competition. The advantages of the outsourcing business made the traditional way of using internal resources for software development tasks look less attractive; the roles have changed now, as the Outsourcing Divide concept has become reality.
