Overview of Offshore Software Development
Cost arbitrage, access to technology and availability of skilled resources are some of the most attractive factors why more and more companies are now leveraging offshore software development. Offshore has also gained a lot of traction because companies are able to cut down their time to market by outsourcing their development to an offshore partner or by setting up an offshore center. Countries like India are really a hub to many companies in the West. In fact, India's software revenue is set to touch $5.8 billion in 2017, according to a report by Gartner.
Validate Vendor Credentials
Do due diligence on the prospective offshore partner about their specialization, size of the company, the development team, their previous clientele and in general their goodwill in the market.
Evaluate the Expertise
Evaluate the technical expertise of the vendor. Offshore software development company should have complete understanding of full spectrum software development. If you are specifically looking for web and mobile app development partner, make sure that they support you across the product lifecycle right from consulting, conceptualization, architecture design, frontend and backend development and testing.
Get Clarity on Development Methodology
Increasingly more companies now want to go to market faster. Therefore you should ensure that your partner follows Agile methodology and is aware about Scrum, XP, Kanban and other Agile / RAD frameworks. Agile methodologies have seen widespread adoption in the last few years because of advantages such as iterative development, faster time to market and collaborative development.
Ask your prospective offshore software development partner for a quotation of the total cost of the project, factoring in costs due to scalability requirements in the future, if any.
