What is meant by outsourcing software development?

Outsourcing Software Development

Software development is an undertaking that often can lead to unanticipated complexity. What starts as a straightforward application can run into problems for various reasons. Many modern programs require compatibility with numerous operating systems and devices. You may run into situations where you need to use a specific language to optimize your application’s functionality or interact with specific external devices. You may just need some extra, skilled developers to work on some specific subset of your project. Issues like this can lead to a serious delay in the completion time for your application.

One recourse that is available to you to solve these problems is to outsource your software development. Leveraging the resources of a software development outsourcing company can help you get your product completed satisfactorily when all of the required skills or resources are not at your disposal with your in-house team. In some cases this may be the only way to finish your application.

The outsourcing of software development tasks has long been a practice of larger software development houses, but has recently gained traction with smaller companies. Any size development project can gain from the assistance afforded by outsourcing.

Reasons to outsource software development


There are many reasons to consider outsourcing software development. Among the potential benefits are:

Cost savings - Costs are a big concern when developing software and software outsourcing can provide significant economic savings. These cost savings can be seen in a number of ways. Taking advantage of the global workforce of skilled software developers can show immediate savings over hiring locally. In addition to salary, additional financial savings come from not having to hire a full-time worker with all the extra associated costs. You can also hire workers that you will only retain for the length of a particular project or task.

Time savings - Time savings also come in a variety of flavors. Hiring new employees takes time. Interviews, orientation and training are all eliminated by software development outsourcing. If your outsourcer is globally staffed your project can get attention around the clock, leading to reduced development time and timely project completion.

Specialized skill sets - You may need some particular skills to complete your software development project. Maybe you need some device drivers for your project and do not have the C programming skills in-house that are required to get the job done. Or you might need a JavaScript expert to polish up your web application. You can lose time and make mistakes trying to have in-house talent attempting to learn new skills. A better option would be to take advantage of the skills that a good outsourcer can provide by reaching into their talent pool of experienced developers.

Cutting edge technology - Software development is a constantly evolving practice and it is not always easy to keep on top of the newest technologies and methods. In-house developers may have numerous responsibilities and not have the time to explore all of the nuances of a new language that you need to use on your project. A software development outsourcer will have developers who can focus more exclusively on their area of expertise and take advantage of new technologies that can be incorporated into your application.

Intangibles - Choosing a quality software development outsourcing partner offers you some advantages that are not as easily quantified as cost and time savings. A good company will have mature project management procedures that will lead to realistic deadlines that can be met and keep your project moving forward. A track record of successful engagements can give you peace of mind that the work will get done. You may be able to choose a company that has advanced testing facilities that can give your product a competitive edge.
