One of the biggest contemporary challenges in ERP market is the availability of IT resources, especially developers. High demand and scarce resources of right candidates make hiring process extremely difficult, time-consuming and expensive.
What can you get from the outsource?
There are lots of opinions and reasons, but most of the executives in the IT field sometimes face the challenges of the HR resource management, and would not argue that in some cases the outsource is more efective and cheaper way of filling the employees‘ temporary competency gaps.
Let‘s talk about the flexibility for the work volume, resource staffing, salaries, motivation and retention. And, of course, the continuous competency training which is unavoidable and mandatory in these tech-spurt times.
|Criteria||Full time developer on-site||Outsourced developer or team|
|Flexibility||Poor. Hard to manage work scope fluctuations: lack of resources in a peak time, and abundance in off-peak||High: you get as much resources as needed in the right time|
|Scalability of resources||Quite poor. If you need different specialists‘ roles or competences, you must hire different persons – it may be expensive. If you take freelancers, you may have issues with team management and communication.||Very high. We will „pack“ the roles and competences you need and always work as a team.|
|Salary||Constant and quite high, do not depends on a work scope.||Hourly/daily based, with an affordable price.|
|Motivation and retention||It is not easy to find a good specialist and even harder to retain him.||You don‘t care – we do. You get the right specialist in a right time.|
|Learning and development||Quite limited, usually „closed“ within one company.||Unlimited due to participation in various projects and high requirements for quality & certifications.|
When to consider outsource?
So, when is it the best time to consider the dev resource outsourcing? Let‘s be straight – when you answer Yes to at least one of the questions below:
- Is it hard to find a right dev competency in your organization?
- Do you need a specific dev competency for a limited time?
- You have a project, which requires higher dev workload than usual?
- You have extra projects, but don’t want to hire extra staff?
Don’t waste your time and money – call an outsource partner and think about your business but not about dev resources problems.
