Outsourcing VS Outstaffing: How To Choose Your Development Model

Software development is gradually emerging from the optional service into an integral component of the majority of industries worldwide. The software development services will continue to gain more and more interest as long as each and every company cannot have a dedicated IT-department.

Development team

There are numerous development models, but the most popular and widespread are outsourcing and outstaffing approaches. Both models have edges and shortcomings. Let's find out which model suits you the most and see how TekkSoft manages to combine the best out of these two.

Software Development Outsourcing: Autonomous Processes and Long-Term Commitments

Software development outsourcing means you trust the service provider to manage all process layers: from the project planning to development managing and financial monitoring. The only two things outsourcing companies need from you are the initial project requirements and funding. They handle all other aspects by themselves.

Now, while isolating the development process is super convenient for companies with little experience in IT-industry, this also brings some drawbacks:

On balance, software development outsourcing is a decent option for short-term projects with transparent and unambiguous requirements.

Software Development Outstaffing: Flexible Workflow And Comprehensive Management

Software development outstaffing is an entirely different approach to creating software products. This model implies taking control of the action instead of delegating the project management to a service provider.

Outstaffing team

The outstaffing company provides you with developers you can use to build a product. It is up to you to manage their time and tasks. You pay for developer hours spent on the project. This enables you to change the tasks dynamically and pivot your objectives at any time suitable. Now, while it may sound like outstanding flexibility, here's why it is also a disadvantage at the same time:

On the whole, outstaffing is an excellent choice for agile startup projects that need dynamic management.
