IT Project Outsourcing – Custom Software Development
IT Outsourcing is the use of external service providers to develop, integrate, and implement IT-enabled business processes. It is a broad term that includes a wide range of outsourced IT support services including application service, infrastructure solutions, utility services, software as a service, and cloud-enabled outsourcing.
IT Outsourcing firms help clients to develop the right sourcing strategies, technologies, and vision. IT outsourcing services also enable organizations to minimize costs, speed-up time to market, and benefit from external expertise and intellectual property.
Many Software as a Service companies recognize IT outsourcing as the collaboration of experts across the world with the common objective to develop top-level business software.
The role of IT Outsourcing answers many important questions related to its importance and advantages. These are: Why do companies outsource? What is the role of IT Outsourcing? What are the main domains of IT Outsourcing?
IT Outsourcing releases capital for investment elsewhere in your business, it allows you to avoid large expenditures during the start of your business. At the same time, it reduces the overhead costs of performing various particular back-office functions.
Types of IT Outsourcing
IT Outsourcing can be of different types, defined by where the outsourced work happens, including:
Offshore Outsourcing or Offshore Software Development: It involves software outsourcing assigned to a firm located in a foreign country. Predominantly, countries like India, Bangladesh and the Philippines are the most favored destinations for offshore outsourcing.
Nearshore Outsourcing or Nearshore Software Development: It is the type of outsourcing in which IT-related work is outsourced to a company, located in a country which shares a boundary with your own. The benefit of nearshore outsourcing is that it allows travel and communication between the two companies easier.
Onshore Outsourcing or Onshore Software Development: Onshore outsourcing involves hiring a service provider located in the same country. Onshore outsourcing offers streamlined communication, but can be costlier as compared to offshore and nearshore outsourcing.
Benefits of IT Outsourcing
IT Outsourcing services bring in a number of benefits for business organizations in the form of:
Expertise: Many service providers whether onshore or offshore have distinct technical expertise or knowledge, making them better equipped to address different challenges.
Low Costs: The biggest advantage of IT Outsourcing is that it provides reduced costs for labor, infrastructure, operations, and even equipment.
Staffing Flexibility: There are operations within a business organization that have seasonal or cyclical demands. Companies can outsource such operations to service providers to increase resourcefulness and efficiency.
The biggest challenge related to IT project outsourcing is that the majority of the projects tend to sabotage their budgets in the resource allocation stage. As every outsourced IT project starts with a tentative estimate, the people responsible for allocating the budget may not fully understand IT project planning. This results in the budget becoming inefficient and collapse even before the project starts.
Many companies consider having a considerable share of reserve funds to support the project. However, some IT project outsourcing projects are cost-extensive which makes even the reserved funds insufficient.
The majority of financial planners and business owners acknowledge that developing an efficient IT project budget is a difficult task. Starting an IT outsourced project from zero can be a daunting task due to the limitations on the project budget.
To resolve this issue, it is important for your company to find an IT project outsourcing consultant that can negotiate all your IT project management requirements with the service provider, to help you minimize the costs, decrease the risk of failure, and improve performance.
There are a large number of companies which provide IT Outsourcing and IT Consultancy to business organizations across all domains. With globalization, companies have been able to hire workers located across different continents in a matter of minutes.

There are a number of risk factors associated while outsourcing IT projects to third-parties. At Global IT Services, we understand the magnitude of risks involved and provide complete resolution of issues associated with this domain.
Some of the most prominent risk factors are:
Loss of Control
When outsourcing, some of the managerial oversight of an organization becomes the immediate responsibility of the software projects outsourcing company. The original organization may lose overall insight and control of the project. The situation worsens when businesses and providers differ in terms of objectives.
Global IT Services ensure that your organization never has to face such a scenario. We create a detailed management plan that includes clear guidelines for the provider, with timelines for each objective and protocols if certain goals are not completed. This ensures that there is always an effective collaboration between your company and the outsourcing partner.
Loss of Quality
Software development outsourcing is inefficient if high quality is not achieved and the final products are not delivered quickly. It is important to ensure that the outsourcing company delivers the same commitment to quality as you require. While this may seem straightforward, it can often be the case that many outsourcing providers lack the required experience and insight into your essential requirements.
At Global IT Services we work tirelessly to find outsourcing candidates who do not have to compromise on quality. We also ensure that the outsourcing providers share the same mindset and vision for a project so that there is no mismatch anywhere across the delivery process.
Even though outsourcing will save a lot of financial resources for a company, at times there are certain hidden costs that can reduce the overall benefit. It is important for companies to ensure complete transparency in hardware and software upgrades, on-site troubleshooting and charges for after-hour services.
Many companies provide software projects outsourcing services that do not cover the additional costs of software implementation and regulation. We ensure our clients get maximum return on investment by selecting the service provider with a cost-effective approach towards outsourcing.
At Global IT Services, we understand the complicated process of drafting a contract. We ensure that all your expected services are included in the contract without any extra charges. Our Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are particularly designed to decrease any surprise costs.
With SLAs, we make sure that services, guaranteesand different maintenance procedures are provided by the outsourcing company without any hassle.
Intellectual Property (IP) is the lifeline of every business organization. It may include anything a company has created, branded, patented or trademarked. While working with an outsourcing company, the parent company may have to expose their IP. This creates a threat that the outsourcing company can steal or mismanage the IP for their own benefits.
At Global IT Services, we make sure that the outsourcing company has to sign a confidentiality agreement to safeguard all Intellectual Property. If the outsourcing company leaks confidential information about your company, they will have to bear all losses covered by the non-disclosure agreements.
