Software Development Outsourcing Models: Dedicated Team

What is software development outsourcing?

In simple terms, it is the process by which a company hires a third-party service provider to manage its software development projects instead of doing it in-house.

Software outsourcing models

When selecting a company for software development outsourcing, you should familiarize yourself with the different outsourcing models and choose the one that suits your needs. There are 3 basic types of software outsourcing models.

Fixed price model

In the fixed-price model, the company and the development team agree on a fixed cost and timeframe for software development. It includes outsourcing the end-to-end management of the entire software project. This is an appropriate outsourcing model when both parties are clear on the exact requirements of the project and the likelihood of any deviation in requirements is low.

Time & Material model

A software development company would probably prefer to implement this model when they are not able to determine the project requirements. The price will depend on the number of hours and dedicated web developers you hire, as well as the cost of hardware.

Dedicated team and resources model

In this model, clients can hire a software development team from an outsourcing partner that serves as an extension of their current team. If you are looking for long-term development, maintenance, and support requirements, you are ready to go with this model.

When to outsource?

If your entire business is focused on one application, it is best to invest in in-house software developers. However, if you are a startup or a small to medium business owner and need a good software solution to automate your business process at the right cost and within the desired time frame, outsourcing seems to be the perfect option.
