Many organizations are now increasingly turning to offshore software development. By outsourcing the work, these companies can protect and grow their core business, and reap the benefits of a solid team provided by an established, reputable third party. But the question is how and where to hire the right team? This is where our expertise comes into play. In this article, we explain the benefits of hiring a dedicated team of software developers and how AllSTARSIT can help you with that.
The definition is in its very name. Offshore development is the practice of partnering with a third party company to create software development teams on your behalf. This development can range from the simplest tasks of coding small applications to creating entire software frameworks for specialized clients.
Setting up and maintaining in-house software development teams requires a substantial initial investment, and then there's the long-term costs of staff wages, overheads, ongoing training, equipment, etc. These can quickly add up and become a drain on company resources. Besides, onsite teams are location-specific and limited in scope, which might curtail the avenues of development for the company.
Offshore teams, in contrast, offer a range of benefits:
The IT recruitment sector is booming worldwide, and while recruiting times vary from one country to another, Ukraine stands among the territories with shorter recruitment timelines.
The reasons for this expeditious recruitment in Ukraine come down to two essential factors: Market dynamics, and the sheer size and growth of the talent pool in the country.
Let's look at these factors in more detail.
Ukraine, the second-largest country in Europe by area, has a total population of around 42m people. Ukraine's nominal GDP in 2020 was $151.5bn. The country is rich in natural resources such as gas and coal, around which much of the heavy industry and exports are based. Agriculture is also a major economic driver.
And over the last two decades or so, Ukraine has seen a steady growth in its IT industry. The country is quickly becoming a focal point for outsourcing. In economic terms, Ukraine's IT-related exports will be valued at $8.4bn by 2025.
According to official figures, the local IT talent pool grew from around 153,000 in 2016 to 250,000 by the end of 2020. Today, many A-level companies such as Microsoft, Samsung, and Apple, have outsourced a great deal of their software development operations to the country.
IT outsourcing represents the largest share of the Ukrainian IT market, with about 70% of all operations dedicated to outsourcing. In terms of market reach, North America and western European countries are the main target regions for Ukrainian outsourcing services.
When looking at all these factors (availability and quality of developers, reliability, and steady growth), AllSTARSIT's choice was clear, and easy to make.
