Software Development Outsourcing

Outsourcing software development means choosing a third party capable of managing and developing a part of or all parts of software development.  The development services can range from custom development, app development to commercial software development.

Software development outsourcing is not only helpful for startups and non-tech organizations but even large-scale companies like Slack, Amazon, GitHub, Alibaba, and WhatsApp opt for outsourcing. And why not?

Cost reduction (on hiring resources and providing infrastructure), enhanced product quality, vast set of skills, experienced and professional resources, etc. While outsourcing has a lot of benefits but if not managed in the right or organized way, it could be detrimental for business goals.

Let’s be real and face it, finding a trusting software development partner is hard.  You have to overcome different time zones, communication barriers, cultural conventions, code quality challenges, and misunderstanding regarding project scope.

We’ve been outsourcing software development for quite a long time now, which is why we cater and overcome challenges relatively easy and deliver code as promised.

Software Development Outsourcing Services

Staff Augmentation

Staff Augmentation

An outsourcing strategy where teams/resources are hired for a project to respond to a business objective. Current staff capabilities are assessed and then an additional skill gap is identified. Companies can have direct control over the hired resources regardless of the outcome.

Dedicated Development Teams

Dedicated Development Teams

An effective strategy works best with nearshore outsourcing. This means the company offering the service will be in the same region or neighboring countries. It’s like choosing a team of software development experts who will work exclusively for your company and not specified for any project only.

Project-Based Model

Project-Based Model

Another outsourcing strategy is where the partnering company manages project development to execution. Overseeing the development and delivering the final product is what a project-based model is all about. Also, projects with clearly defined scope and planning can fit into this model.

Requirements are studied, along with the existing code and rules, code repositories, documentation, etc. This helps with better understanding of the current state of the product and what’s exactly is expected.

Signing Contract

Although stages of hiring may vary from one outsourcing model to another (dedicated development teams, staff augmentation, project-based model) we laid the basics. After knowledge transfer, the client signs a legal contract where both parties are bound by the specifications being mentioned and agreed.

What to look for when outsourcing software development projects?

A good outsourcing partner is hard to find, because already good resources are engaged. Do you know every 2 developers out of 3 are in full time roles? There is an overall shortage of skilled developers. However, if you get a trusting partner, that is more than a blessing. Do consider these few things while outsourcing a project.
  • Opt for agile and scrum for project management as these are the most effective.
  • Keep the workflow transparent, frequent meetings schedule.
  • Reliable security protocols are needed.
  • Prefer teams working in the same time zone.
  • Check service provider’s reputation and track record.

Frequently Asked Questions

Outsourcing delivers expected outcome whereas inside staff augmentation, only resources are attained to fill a skillset gap and there is no expectation regarding the project outcome (either the project succeeds or fails).

Depends on the project complexity. However, Agile and Scrum are two popular choices over here at Code Ninja. Our processes do correspond with the average software development cycle, that is, ideation, planning, designing, development, testing, launching and support.

Since Code Ninja is one of the reputable and trusted software development companies, we offer qualified developers. However, you are welcome to conduct as many interviews with our team of experts to make sure you get the right fit for the job.

We do arrange Skype call meetings so that the client and the outsourced team get acquaintance and if client feels to proceed further, can ask for the technical assignments with a deadline.

Again, depending upon the project size and duration. We can offer up to 1-80 dedicated developers. We do understand every business is different, and so the needs.

If the project scope is defined and clear, that is, well written requirements and goals document, you don’t need dedicated team but if the project scope is uncertain and complex, dedicated teams can work better since the work could be divided into different development phases.

Communication barrier, gaining access to global pool of talent can cause communication issues, overcoming different time zones, languages and cultural conventions. Code quality challenges, checking if the outsourced team is adhering to quality standards.

Maintaining a proper check on code quality when outsourcing development to offshore/nearshore team requires communication of expectations, telling quality benchmarks in advance etc.
