Outsourcing some of the workload is no longer just the preserve of large corporations. Small to Medium Size Enterprises (SMEs) can also benefit from outsourcing portions of their software development to a third party. Not everyone in business can afford to hire an army of staff, which is why outsourcing can be so appealing
Are my current resources capable of supporting new technology? Is there a quicker, more effective method to handle processes? Does my team have the operational expertise to do the task assigned? Are we working at optimum costs? If you are asking yourself the question ‘why should I outsource’, consider the following top reasons for outsourcing cited by companies that have successfully made outsourcing work for them
Focus on core functions: Companies that outsource software development to dedicated experts are more capable of focusing on their core competency.
One time applications:Companies often need to build one time applications. Such ad hoc or one time applications will require high manpower resources and companies find that they are faced with the need to ramp up in relatively short time spans. Outsourcing such needs is the best solution for companies that want to avoid expensive outlays for the short term.
Accelerate migration to new technology: Migrating to newer technologies allows companies to make better use of their investments and enjoy enhanced productivity and quality. Companies with outsourced IT processes are better enabled to migrate to new technologies with minimum downtime and productivity disruption.
Enhance risk management: At Guru Design Corp we are fanatical about security and best practice. All our operations are supplemented with redundancies and back-up mechanisms.
Lower infrastructure investments: Companies that decide to outsource find that expensive infrastructure requirements are cut back drastically as some of the functions move to external locations. At Guru Design Corp we offer all our clients access to Amazon Web Services, the Gold standard in Cloud Computing.
Access to world-class capabilities: Apart from the financial benefits associated, another reason why companies outsource work is to have processes delivered by teams that have operational expertise in the outsourced process. Outsourcing gives companies access to world-class capabilities and infrastructure.
Control operating costs: One of the most spoken about advantages of outsourcing are more controlled development costs. Development work offered to a specialised development house such as Guru Design Corp translates into major cost savings for companies. They also save on operational costs such as payroll, administrative costs, HR, power, rentals and utilities. Improved operational performance: Companies outsource to vendors who have domain expertise in the outsourced process. Their experience in the field translates into greater operational efficiencies for the outsourcing company.
