In an undetermined and dynamically changing business environment, the demand for expert IT services is constantly rising. Globalization has made it possible for companies to lean more towards resource outsourcing using dedicated teams or staff augmentation services.
Fortunately, IT outsourcing is a remarkable option, offering its countless benefits – optimizing the time and costs of the project, tapping into the knowledge base of a skilled IT partner, and optimizing operational efficiency. Therefore, many companies pass IT responsibilities over to third parties.
Resource Outsourcing companies provide access to a global talent pool via remote agencies, or by utilizing their own resources. Your resource can be anywhere in the world without a geographic constraint.
Resource outsourcing agencies have a bench of engineers that are between projects and available to start immediately, which is more comfortable for resource outsourcing companies to add new technology and talent for a project rather than managing or hiring resources in-house.
Now, let’s talk about the most impactful factor behind outsourcing: the cost.
The resource outsourcing cost associated with running a project is far less than hiring an in-house team. Multiple factors contribute to this, including salary, employee benefits, and the company’s culture.
There are different models of outsourcing to choose from, where dedicated teams and staff augmentation are the most popular. Both carry benefits and suit in different circumstances.
An Outsourcing company can assist in scaling up your operations on a standard basis. Moreover, an outsourcing model can be applied to multiple places and situations to scale up operations in various circumstances.

Responsibilities and Costs:
Service Provider Company is responsible for the recruitment and employment of engineers. Nevertheless, when outsourcing a dedicated team, the vendor covers the costs of office spaces, employees’ training, and other benefits.
Many factors determine the total cost of ownership for these kinds of projects that the software house has to bear, which is beneficial and convenient for the outsourcer, who get skilled team for their project completion.
Organizational Working Culture:
Employees working in an organization as a dedicated team creates a unique environment of knowledge exchange and cooperation. Team bonding, the overall atmosphere, and team spirit keep employees motivated. Moreover, the software house strengthens the culture by providing the comfort of work, proper career development, and all necessary tools.
In the staff augmentation, project management is usually done by the outsourcer by utilizing a few of their resources and get one or two resources from the outsourcing service Provider Company, which the outsourcer lacks to develop the project. The one or two outsource resources can join the outsourcer company at their office, remotely using online services, or can provide services from a nearby location to deliver the best possible services.
On the other hand, hiring a dedicated team allows delivering a whole project to the outsource company who will manage the entire project, staff, and infrastructure.
An experienced software development company has many partnerships and completed different projects, therefore, capable of handling IT projects efficiently.
