As budgets shrink and costs rise, more companies worldwide are outsourcing their software development. In 2020, the outsourced IT services market was valued at $556.67 billion, accounting for 78% of the overall market. That figure is set to jump to a whopping $806.63 billion by 2025. From fintech and health tech companies to logistics, recruitment, different SaaS products and blockchain, why are so many industries choosing to outsource their software development?
Software development is often sought by businesses looking to increase their market share and improve their overall business performance. When it comes to outsourcing, businesses generally have three options:
One of the most obvious reasons a company chooses to outsource its software development is to reduce costs. Having in-house software expertise includes wages, holidays, benefits, recruitment costs, taxes, and other costs. While you could opt for a freelance developer and avoid additional spending, this often carries risk and higher hourly costs than in finding a vendor in a similar time zone. With no capital expenditure, your software partner gives you a fully trained developer or a dedicated team who lend immediate expertise to your business minus the overheads.
An outsourced software development company opens your business to a new world of talent. DevOps engineers, software engineers, QA engineers, data scientists, business analysts, and product owners, all with deep domain expertise… outsourcing fills the gaps in your business.
Your chosen partner will fit your needs rather than trying to source as many of the skills and attributes as you can from one freelancer or new hire.
There is currently a shortage of developers worldwide, so having that expertise at your disposal can be a significant competitive advantage. Your outsourced partner has already vetted, trained and nurtured their team so that you can quickly reap the benefits of their internal processes. Market trends, consumer needs, economic conditions, market share… growth requires agility.
If Covid-19 has taught us any business lessons, it is that needs can pivot overnight. An agile IT environment and easy and fast implementation mean a faster time to market. Your software budget remains intact, and your project is delivered on schedule. On-demand flexibility is there when you need it and built into your business.
In partnering with an outsourced software company, you benefit from their established processes. A trustworthy partner will care about its reputation and will do its best to take the weight off your shoulders and mitigates risk, leaving you with high-quality software solutions.
Your software partner is also well-versed in emerging technologies and trends and can alert you to emerging opportunities. This is yet another competitive advantage that leaves you to focus on your core business activities.
