Talent is the new oil, and the global shortage of tech experts is soaring.
The US market has over 200,000 open jobs and the EU has over 75,000 unfilled
positions. Companies are struggling to find, hire, and retain top specialists.
However, with a world-wide switch to remote, the walls between onshore and offshore
have tumbled down. That is why more and more businesses around the world, from
startups to Fortune 500 leaders, opt for offshore outsourcing. For instance, companies
such as Microsoft, IBM, Boeing, Samsung, Fluke, Lebara, Travelport, and many others
have offshored their software development to Eastern Europe.
An in-house development team gives you more control over the development process, but comes with HR and operational overhead. It takes more time to hire and is difficult to ramp up/down.
In case of onshore development, your tech partner operates in the same country as you do. It allows you to find tech experts needed, without hiring and managing them in-house.
Nearshore outsourcing occurs when you outsource development to a company in a nearby country. It helps you to reach a larger pool of experts than you can do onshore.
Offshore development services refer to partnership with a team from an overseas country. They allow you to tap into the global tech talent pool and scale up/down your team easily.
Offshore development services can help you find the right specialists,
augment your expertise easily, and mitigate risks.
With years of experience and dozens of completed projects, top offshore IT companies will help you apply best technology and industry practices.
Established vendors usually have a large recruitment team (30+ people) and an enormous base of tech experts to find the right specialists for your project.
When you need to scale your team up or down, your offshore software development partner takes care of all HR activities and helps you avoid overhead and mitigate risks.
Depending on the selected cooperation model, you can choose the level of responsibility and control you want have over the project in offshore outsourcing.

There are three basic models. Fixed price is excellent if you have a small, well-defined project that requires no flexibility. Time and material best suits small and midsize projects that don’t have clearly defined requirements and cannot be estimated in advance. Dedicated team is the best option for large, long-term projects with evolving requirements.
Thoroughly discuss with your offshore software development partner such vital aspects as intellectual property rights confidentiality, notice periods, non-solicitation terms, data protection, regulation compliance, liability, and more. Consult with your legal team and negotiate every single aspect to avoid any contract loopholes, before you sign the contract.
Effective communication is an integral part of offshore development services. To avoid misunderstandings and set the ground for an effective working environment, define the rules of communication with your team.The unification of coding practices, establishing channels of communication, promoting knowledge transfer are a great way to achieve this goal.
The knowledge that is not shared or documented is lost. Successful knowledge transfer includes: sharing knowledge before the beginning of the project in order to explain the context, business logic, and expectations; documenting the accumulated knowledge during the project; and knowledge transfer for when the project is over.
