The core business of IT companies is… IT. Does this answer the question about why to use IT outsourcing, and its benefits? Not at all. Even IT companies can take advantage of IT outsourcing as a growth driver, and benefit from the excellent prerequisites for outsourcing projects and development work, and strengthen their core business and economic position.
Outsource skills – or expand them?
Companies in various industries use external IT service providers and suppliers because they themselves lack the internal IT expertise and capacities. They then benefit from high class services and at the same time can focus their resources on their core competencies.
IT companies in turn have this expertise and extensive experience and can then sell them to their customers as services or products. Nevertheless, IT outsourcing can also offer these companies numerous advantages and possibilities:
Streamlined, flexible and powerful corporate structures.
Concentration of own resources on tasks that need to be processed internally.
Stronger position against larger competitors when competing for more demanding projects.
Competitive advantages through more flexibility and a wider portfolio.
Expert knowledge in rarely needed or new technologies.
Lower hourly rates, which can be passed on to customers or used to optimise the internal cost structure.
Flexible adjustment of own capacities to changing customer and project requirements.
Reduced overhead and fixed costs.
It is clear that outsourcing for IT companies does not mean the outsourcing of core competencies. Rather, it improves their market position and their presence to customers.
Sound simple? Not quite…
Despite all the advantages, outsourcing for IT companies can also bring risks with it. The following are just a few:
Unsuitable outsourcing service providers with too little experience, lack of knowledge or unsuitable offers.
Lack of qualifications, experience or social skills among the offshore software developers.
Cultural and language barriers when cooperating with offshore software developers.
Service provider is not properly identified, or the software developer is not properly informed on the objectives and goals of the client.
Lack of motivation in the offshore software developer, partly due to low pay or unpleasant working conditions.
Lack of control or coordination in the team.
Such risks can jeopardize the success of the entire project, or at least negate the benefits that IT companies can receive from outsourcing.
