.Net Development Outsourcing: Is This the Right Choice?

  • lowering or excluding the expenditure of budget funds for the search for professionals with the relevant profile and technical education, saving on training and training, certification and licensing;
  • there’s no need to organize substitution and duplication in case of illness or weekend employees, pay for work and sick leave;
  • use of the company’s resources on the main tasks and profile purposes;
  • attracting highly qualified personnel for one-off core jobs and supporting the operation of networks and servers in an uninterrupted mode, thereby maintaining the necessary quality and necessary maintenance.

  • distortion of data;
  • non-transparency of payment for services of outsourcing companies;
  • the complexity of bringing the outsourcer to account for the violations committed;
  • it’s impossible to accurately predict the success of the company’s development, and, consequently, to determine the volume of the load;
  • the discrepancy between the quality of the services provided by the outsourcer to the customer;
  • the impossibility of operative decision making in the emergency or force major cases;
  • the novelty of outsourcing services and the immaturity of this market in general.
