AtomCTO: Outsourcing IT Projects – Lessons Learnt from our CTOs

May 13, 2020

Whether you are a new start-up company, or an established business looking to scale up, outsourcing could be the most cost effective way for you to find the technical resources you need to build your tech solutions.

In this podcast, we discuss the various ways in which you can outsource projects and how to best find a team or tech partner that works for your specific needs. We highlight the pros and cons of both offshoring or nearshoring, the need for a clear structure in the relationship between your company and tech partner, and the importance of a clear hiring process and criteria in your mind.

For a successful outsourcing relationship, both parties should take a long term approach to the partnership. Work can ebb and flow, but there may be periods where the tech needs to be delivered at a fast pace or there is an urgency needed to take advantage of a new opportunity. For these periods, having the right tech partner or team to respond and deliver can make or break a company.
