Offshore Software Development Companies in India on the Rise
Posted by Congruent on February 16th, 2016
Offshore IT outsourcing to India is all the rage, and for good reason. For decades now, companies have been outsourcing IT functions and even more are considering the practice a competitive necessity, especially in this day and age of electronic businesses and web domination.
Studies confirm that companies and businesses from various sectors and industries, but most especially from large consulting and system integration companies and suppliers both in the Europe and the United States are increasingly considering offshore partnerships for IT and software development not only to lower production and delivery costs, but to gain access to diverse and expert IT skill sets, which India is tremendously rich in. Meanwhile even more mid-tier firms, IT, and technology service providers are also now partnering with offshore developers to enhance their service delivery.
Among the most notable benefits of outsourcing software development to offshore companies, particularly in India include substantial cost savings largely because of significantly lower offshore labor rates, access to highly specialized technology skills, and continuous development process that is always up-to-date with the latest trends in the industry.
Offshore software development offers an undeniable return on investment opportunities, on top of many other substantial benefits, although it shouldn't be viewed as a cure-all for your IT needs. While off-shore companies can provide you with the skill sets and the extensive knowledge base that you need to successfully execute IT projects and software development plans, identification of products, projects, and processes that you can successfully outsource is still a critical part of the process, as is choosing the right offshore firm to help you do the job well. This can be quite a challenging feat, especially when you think about legal and security issues and all other project and team management challenges that may lead to project delays, cost overruns, and unmet expectations due to poor results. As such, it is extremely important that you find an offshore software development company that can truly cater to your requirements and ensure the success of every project at hand.
Establishing mature partnerships with experienced and trustworthy offshore companies is key to ensuring the quality of every outsourced project you roll out. Capitalizing on the specialized outsourced technical skills and the labor cost advantages of offshore software development companies in India is definitely an intelligent business move, if you know how to approach the strategy with caution and with ample planning.
