Offshore Outsourcing Demystified Webinar

nov-2016-webinar-imgWith the continual rising costs of hiring local software engineers, many companies consider bringing in a software development partner.  In order to keep cost down, offshore engineering is a favorable option.  In this webinar, we will discuss practical advice on using offshore outsourcing for software development. While we will cover some general considerations that are geography-agnostic, most of the focus will be first hand experience with effectively leveraging India for offshore outsourcing.

Some discussion points:

  1. When should you consider outsourcing/offshoring and when should you hire locally? And what are the advantages of both?
  2. What are your options for lower cost offshore development? And what are the pros/cons of the different regions (Eastern Europe, Latin America, India, China, etc.)?
  3. What are the potential drivers for offshoring? For example, what are some specific project needs and functional roles that are more successful outsourcing?
  4. What are some preconditions to ensure you do this right?
  5. How do you decide to do it yourself vs. go with an offshore partner?
  6. What are good practices when doing offshore software development?
