It is obvious that outsourcing can be especially interesting for start-ups, and is often the only realistic option to realise the chosen business model.
This makes the choosing the right outsourcing service provider a question of survival for start-ups. A young company can hardly overcome failures in the IT field or shortly after launch if it does not pursue a purely analogue business model.
The most important criteria for the outsourcing of IT for start-ups are:
Start-ups require IT support from experts who understand their business model, their needs and the technologies they are using.
Projects and project developments must achieve the desired results, and remain on time and within budget. A lack of technical skill or teamwork among offshore software developers must not affect the development of the business.
During the development of an innovative product and services, the demand for IT services often fluctuates. A few masterminds develop ideas and concepts, which are then realised by larger teams. These cycles are repeated several times before the market launch. The ability to quickly react to changes in demand without creating shortages or unnecessary costs often decides the success or failure of newly formed enterprises.
Shortly before or after the introduction of new products or services to the market, many companies still do not make any money. All investments must be carefully financed through other ways. The chance to reduce costs without compromising quality and/or development time is highly welcomed.
