IT Professionals at the top of their field face many challenges in the workplace; constant news about data breaches, pressure to keep abreast of the latest and best practices, staying ahead of existing and emerging competitors, whilst at the same time, making the most of their budget.
As a result, in recent years CIOs and CTOs have leveraged outsourcing of their software development projects to reduce some of this burden. With a vast talent pool and a wide array of companies competing for business, this has become easier than ever.
For IT leaders, choosing the right provider is vital. Take for example these two quotes from IT executives: “During many years working for the industry, I’ve dealt with some critical issues when selecting a partner to work on software development projects. The top 3 issues are:
- Companies delivering on agility with lower risk and costs.
- Traditional IT needs to be the enabler and driver of business. For example, digital technology can drive customer retention.
- The capabilities to assimilate company culture, agility, retain talent, and get the best.” Subhashish Acharya
“I’ve seen many companies make the wrong software outsourcing choice. And I’ve watched this cost their software and companies dearly, including time, money, delays, glitches, security issues and other problems… So making the right software outsourcing choice is vital. I’ve found that when you work with a great developer, they not only adhere to standards to ensure quality, they focus on your overall objectives and intended results.” Steve Mezak, Founder and CEO of Accelerance, Inc. on his Forbes article How To Successfully Outsource Software Development.
