Outsourcing or subcontracting is briefly explained as contacting a third party to have services performed by them. For this you can opt for an external partner or to put an employee of a third party to work in-house.
You choose outsourcing if you want to outsource a complete software development issue. From A to Z. The outsourcing partner takes care of all the ins and outs. What that means? That you can keep your hands completely off the job. Think of it as ‘You ask, the outsourcing party runs.’ This way you can fully focus on the rest of the business. Do you realize that you really hand over everything, and with that control over progress, quality, cooperation, etc. For the control freaks among us, so quite a spicy one.
Wat is Outstaffing?
Although it is quickly seen as the same in the corridors, outstaffing is really something else. Actually, the concept already explains itself if you analyze it: outsourcing staff. Engaging an external party who finds the right software developers for you in the relevant country who work remotely in your development team. You keep control. The outstaffing partner is, as it were, a remote secondment. One that matches the wishes of you as a customer and the knowledge and skills of software developers. Searching, training and managing from one software developer to a multidisciplinary remote software team.
Difference Between Outstaffing & Outsourcing
Outstaffing means that a company hires an outside supplier to provide additional IT staff when needed. This can be done, for example, in the form of freelancers or flexibly hired employees. The advantage of outstaffing is that it is faster and easier than hiring new permanent staff. Moreover, there are usually no costs associated with training new employees, because the external supplier has all the necessary personnel and know-how in-house.
With outsourcing you hand over a complete software development project – and therefore control.
