The Future of IT Outsourcing: 5 Trends to Watch in 2022

In the times of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies worldwide have started investing more and more money to digitize their products and services. As IT spending continues to rise, employers will have to contend with staffing shortages among IT professionals. And this is where we see the vast importance of IT outsourcing, which is sure to be very popular this year.

If you wonder what the IT outsourcing market will look like, we invite you to read on. Here you will find five trends to watch in 2022.

1. The growing importance of end-to-end solutions

Companies worldwide in various industries are beginning to see great potential in entire outsourcing teams who have experience working with each other, communicating well, and working together smoothly. Time is significant, and involving a whole team makes the software development process faster and more efficient.

2. Quality more important than price

They predict that the spending on IT services will increase to more than 1.2 trillion dollars in 2022 and almost 1,4 trillion in 2023.

What could this data mean? That companies’ savings won’t be as crucial as creating solid, quality software that meets their expectations. Therefore, another trend that will be popular in 2022 will be to focus on the quality of the solutions delivered.

Companies will be looking for reliable and experienced technology partners with solid knowledge and a solid position in the market. These factors will guarantee excellent and practical cooperation and minimize the risk of possible problems and misunderstandings.

3. Increasing IT outsourcing popularity among small businesses

The rise of this trend is confirmed by Clutch’s data, according to which even 80% of small businesses in the US planned to outsource at least one business process to an external provider in 2021.

4. The growing popularity of IT outsourcing to Eastern Europe

US and Western European companies mainly prefer to work with Eastern European countries for outsourcing, such as Poland, Romania, Ukraine, or Belarus. It is caused by cultural proximity, good English language skills, and high technical skills of the Eastern Europe developers. Moreover, this market is still growing! According to The 2022 State of IT in Europe, 57% of the European companies expect their revenues to grow in 2022.

Salaries in Eastern European countries are still lower than in the US, Germany, Switzerland, or Nordic countries. The quality of service and communication provided is usually much higher than in the case of companies from Asian countries. Choosing to outsource to a country like Poland is a safe solution, allowing you to work with the best professionals at a relatively low price.

5. Long-term business relationships

Above all, your teams know and trust each other well. You know what to expect and what results to anticipate. What’s more, you don’t need time to implement and familiarize them with your company’s product, policies, and tools because they already know them from previous projects. It’s a great comfort that allows you to act quickly, efficiently, and predictably.
