Before using all the benefits of outsourced development, any company should think of outsourcing models. The choice will define the management level of the development process and the security level of corporate data. There are three outsourcing models. Among them:
A provider of outsourced development manages the whole process of development, team organization, and product finalization. Moreover, it is responsible for product quality, issues and risks.
This model is optimal when your employees do not have a lot of experience and knowledge in needed software or you have many ongoing projects.
To avoid such cons, you should always ask for regular meetings and reports from your provider. All your communication ought to be as transparent as possible.
A vendor adds an outsourced team of developers to your existing in-house team. The outsourced team will only work on their part of a project. Thus, both teams share possible risks. The provider will manage the team, but their project manager will provide regular reports to your company, project manager, or product owner.
This model is optimal for companies that already have an in-house team of developers but lack expertise or resources.
To avoid miscommunication, look for a vendor who knows how to work on the communication and development process. Also, do not forget about regular reports on the progress.
You will manage an outsourced team by yourself. The model is optimal when you do not have employees with needed expertise or have a bit slow development process. Usually, the provider provides only several needed specialists, not the whole team.
To avoid these cons, choose a vendor that will help you check the performance of their experts. If needed, solve problems that might arise from collaboration.
