As we head into a long weekend of well deserved rest! I thought I would add my 2 cents on the issue of outsourcing software development ! My company has many clients who do software development, They come in all shapes and sizes ! But what I have learned just as with our children (see Alexandria’s pic! ) they are all different .
The key is to find the right fit and the right partner !
A .Net company with a focus on legacy AS 400 development needs partners who can use that expertise ! A mobility app company that does droids or IPhone needs to find an agile client with a demand for quality app’s.
The other critical success factor is knowing someone’s business rather than offering low-cost development !!!
A financial client wants you to know what a stock or bond or hedge fund is!!!
So what I have learned , and sometimes the hard way is that you need to put the right people together for the right reason’s if it’s going to work over time ! The day’s of just low-cost are not enough in today’s demanding marketplace!
Enjoy the weekend!
