Software development: In-house or Outsource?

April 21, 2022

Recently, Deloitte conducted a survey about the most common reasons large enterprises choose to outsource.

First and foremost, outsourcing rather than handling it internally can reduce costs. Also, growing an in-house staff typically requires more time. But there is more to it. Let’s sum up the key benefits of hiring a software outsourcing partner.

1. Reducing operating costs;

2. Focus on core business;

3. Solve capacity issues;

4. Adapt to talent scarcity and other business needs.

In-house and outsource

An option is to combine in-house and outsourced, as you might get the best of both worlds. Both in-house teams and outsourcing require an understanding of skills, patience, and diligence. While outsourced software development might be more affordable, in-house staff lays a solid background for longer-term progress. Tasks like customer communication or online security can be ideal for engaging an experienced IT vendor to get the job done. At the same time, you and your team focus on more value-increasing objectives. Using a mix of in-house and outsourced approaches is a great way to make a well-balanced model. Ensuring you have the right people doing the right things right when needed.

When it comes to software development, the reasons to outsource even add up. At Present Connection, our nearshoring team constantly works on applications with a long road map. And because they work from a distance, they are not being disturbed by the daily run of the mill. Our clients also want to spread their risks and not put all their eggs in one basket. A fixed team that works from a distance makes software development a certain factor with a low error margin. Therefore, the team of friendly, dedicated, nearshored people is always our choice team.

How we work

Finally, at Present Connection, we are convinced that software development is not about technology but people. In our line of work, communication makes the difference. That is also the reason why we are in favor of relationships between equal partners, in which human interaction is crucial. There must be technology, but in our judgment, it is nothing more than a precondition and, in some cases, even a secondary issue. IT stands for Information Technology, and us, very much in that order. So, we can make a real difference with our approach and communication.

Present Connection. Software development made personal.
