Are you facing an IT project and deciding whether to execute it internally or hand it over to an external provider? Let's compare the pros and cons of in-house development versus outsourcing.

Outsourcing? What is it?

Outsourcing generally refers to the practice of securing services from an external provider. This usually occurs when these services cannot be performed internally. The most common reasons for outsourcing include cost reduction, time savings to gain expertise, or a lack of human resources within the company.

Advantages of Outsourcing Development

  • Reduced Initial Costs: When using an external provider, the initial costs of project implementation are usually significantly lower than in-house development.
  • Responsibility for Technical Solutions: The external provider takes responsibility for the technical solutions of the project, freeing you from this concern.
  • Time Savings: Let your external provider handle tasks where you lack expertise and invest your time in building your business.
  • High Level of Expertise: Thanks to working on projects for various clients, your external provider will have extensive knowledge and a high level of expertise across IT technologies, always recommending optimal solutions.

Disadvantages of Outsourcing Development

Compared to an in-house team, there is a higher risk of sensitive information leakage and initial mistrust. However, such information leakage can also occur with an in-house team employee. Therefore, it is essential to address this issue contractually. We ensure contractual responsibility for handling sensitive information and securing your data so it only reaches authorized personnel.

Comparison of Outsourcing vs. In-House Development Team

In-house development means having a team of programmers, testers, and other developers as standard employees within your company. You manage these development teams yourself and are responsible for their technical competency in the given field.

Advantages of In-House Development

  1. Full Control: You have complete control over the development team and their capacities for development. This eliminates the need for coordination with an external provider's development capacities.
  2. Freedom in Technology Choice: You can choose the most suitable technology for implementation without needing to consult with an external provider.

Disadvantages of In-House Development

  • Higher Initial Financial Costs: You need to handle team recruitment, purchase equipment, and provide the necessary tools for their specialized work.
  • Higher Initial Time Costs: It will take longer for a newly assembled team to synchronize and gain knowledge of company processes.
  • Risk of Specialist Departure: There is a risk of specialists leaving, which brings additional time and financial costs for finding replacements.
  • Fixed Salary Costs: During periods of lower development demands, you still have to pay the same salary costs for all hired specialists.
  • Need for Adequate Knowledge: At least at the project's start, and possibly throughout its duration, you need sufficient knowledge of the development issues to manage and coordinate work smoothly.
