Choosing the right software outsourcing model

Generally speaking, there are 3 basic models that companies choose from when outsourcing software development. The proper choice will depend on factors such as project nature, scope, budget, and deadline.

Staff Augmentation

An outsourced team works alongside your internal team to develop software. This type of model places the majority of the responsibility on the client.

Dedicated/Managed Teams

A much broader partnership than team augmentation. The extended team has more responsibility for your project.

Project-based

The outsourcing company oversees the project from beginning to end. The majority of the responsibility is on the outsourcing provider.

Setting up a software outsourcing strategy

Engaging in a software outsourcing relationship is not a decision that should be made lightly. You won’t be successful if you outsource without planning. That’s the reason, before getting started, it is necessary to establish a working outsourcing strategy.

Define your goals

Other than reducing costs, what are other outsourcing objectives for your company?

Determine your
tech profile

Make sure that your vendor has a technological profile suited to your needs

Choose the right engagement model

It will help save time and resources while increasing productivity in the long run.

Establish roles and responsibilities

It will ensure that the work will run smoothly. Both, the in-house and extended teams should know what their tasks should be and who needs to be updated about progress.

Foster a good working environment

Inform everyone about your goals, avoid gossip, and close any cultural gap between your in-house team and your vendor’s team.

Track progress and value

Agree with your partner on key performance indicators that can help you assess the success of the outsourcing model and the relationship overall.

Main benefits of outsourcing software development to Latin America

The pool of Talent

One of the main reasons why US companies chose Latin America as their preferred software destination is the exceptional technical talent. Statistics from HackerRank show that Argentina, Brazil, Peru, and Chile have among the best and most tenacious software developers in the world.

Location is a crucial factor for successful software development outsourcing. Mexico is the only Latin American country that shares the Pacific, Mountain, Central, and Eastern time zones with the US. And while Argentina is over 7,000 miles from the US, it is only one to two hours ahead of the US east coast time, depending on the time of year. Buenos Aires is only four hours behind London and four hours ahead of Silicon Valley

With 556 points in the latest Education First (EF) Proficiency index, Argentina continues to be the country with the strongest English skills in the region. Buenos Aires and Córdoba scored similar results to other European capitals such as Madrid or Barcelona.

A senior software engineer in Latin America is between 50% and 70% cheaper than an engineer with the same skills located within the United States.
