Still unsure what to choose — outsourcing or in-house production?
To give you an idea when and how you can benefit from working with an IT contractor, we have compiled the main advantages of IT outsourcing below.

When Is It Beneficial to Outsource?

A project is out of your expertise
Say, your company develops enterprise accounting software and you have quite a number of valuable clients in this industry. One of the clients asks you to develop a mobile app for them, but this is not what you specialize in. Learning and trying may be too long, expensive and even dangerous for your reputation, in case the client is not satisfied with the work and decides to leave you. Choose to outsource and keep your clients safe.
Lack of qualified management
When you don't have enough qualified management resources to take control of the army of QA engineers and developers, who you need to produce your product. Poor IT management may result in doubled production costs. To avoid this, you'd better outsource production with pre-defined costs and guaranteed risk level.
Want to bring innovation
IT outsourcing agencies usually have an impressive project portfolio. If the contactor works with a number of clients, the only way to retain and satisfy them all is to use cutting-edge technologies. This means that such people are qualified and can bring the latest approaches and technologies to your employees, thus increasing overall innovation level in your company.
Face an issue of quickly-rotating staff
For example, your support engineers leave company in just a year, however it takes them 3 months to learn internal processes only. In this case it is better to outsource, because your outsourcing partner will take care of their personnel learning, onboarding and assure works with zero downtime.
You need a one-time job
Assume, you need to roll out a new server software. You don't want to hire a full-time expensive specialist, who will only perform this task. You will either have to switch him to other regular tasks or fire afterwards, having invested in his recruiting, onboarding and learning. Outsourcing such task is a way to go.
You urgently need a particular specialist
For instance, while implementing a project, the scope of work unexpectedly increased or one of your key employees left you. To be able to meet the deadline, you urgently need a particular highly-qualified specialist in your team. As a rule it is time-consuming and sometimes tricky to recruit a real talent. Virtual software development team will be a great support in this situation. You ask for a particular developer with proven project expertise and occupy him as much and as long as you need.
