outsourcing to India

, cost benefits a vital point and vast IT skilled talent pool are just two! However, before outsourcing to India, you need to be completely informed and this write-up covers everything you might want to know. So, let's get started.

Although other countries like China, Mexico, Philippines are in a row to give tough competition to India, the country remains to be the most preferred outsourcing destination. Let's start with a simple question - "

What is outsourcing

In simple terms, outsourcing is a simple process where your business operations performed outside your in-house infrastructure. A company is said to be outsourcing, when you hire remote developers, dedicated teams, distributed teams, and get your complete project completed at an external location. My experience says you choose to outsource a specific task, a full project, or hire web experts / teams to work on it. Now, major of the companies believe a strategic partnership between the two firms for achieving the best outcome from an outsourcing venture has become the way out.

The above statistics clearly show how aggressively the IT industry spending is growing, this is due to current demand outgrowing the supply of qualified specialists for certain technologies. In 2019, the spending on IT services reached US$1.03 trillion worldwide. To date 2020* the spending is US$1.081 trillion*, and the anticipated to grow by another 110 billion between 2020 and 2021.
Over the years, outsourcing has become an indispensable business strategy of global corporations, start-ups, mid-sized companies, enterprises, and all others. Now let me introduce you to the terms outsourcing and offshoring. Knowing the meaning of outsourcing is not just enough you should have a clear understanding of all the three, so to adopt without confusion.
While we have already discussed what outsourcing means in the initial paras. Here, let’s know what offshoring and nearshoring and how they are different from outsourcing.
The term outsourcing is defined as a business practice in which a business contracts out certain business processes or services to a third-party provider. Offshoring involves business processes, tasks or services by a company to its center in a different country.
For more clarity, let's have a look at this example, hiring a software development outsourcing services to provide by a company for creating its software products is outsourcing. Whereas the establishment of a new software development center by this company in a different country to provide software products is an example of offshoring. Another simple example is Apple opening a customer service center in India to serve its clients in the United States.
Main Advantages of Outsourcing in India
It is well known that the cost of labor in Western countries like the United States is high. So, when it comes to comparing price and also the quality of work, India has a vast pool of talent that is available at a comparatively inexpensive rate. By shifting their business service to a developing country like India, companies can leverage cost differences and get their services completed at a much lower price. Hiring a team at less wage is a major advantage but let me tell you a few more advantages that are also considered.
Reduced costs: Outsourcing to a third-party provider usually provides a large cost saving to businesses. For example, for a US company, getting a website developed and maintained in-house is much costlier than just outsourcing web development to an IT outsourcing service provider in India.
Focus on core competencies: Outsourcing lets the company dedicate concentrate on its business core operations.
Expertise: Outsourcing a business task like in a web development project, to a software development

outsourcing company

expert in development results in a high-quality, on-time, bug-free product.
Scalability: According to the business requirements a company that hired a third party outsourcing company can increase or decrease in the size of the outsourced team. If a company hired a size of five remote developers for its project, but for some reason, it requires more developers, then the outsourcing service provider can easily scale up the team.
Skilled workforce: Another major benefit that

US companies draw from offshoring

is getting their work done by highly skilled and certified professionals. India is well acknowledged for its expert IT professionals, due to this reason many software companies have offshored their software development centers to India.
Infrastructure: With IT hubs in Bangalore, Gurgaon, and Hyderabad, India has proved itself to be a part of all the developed nations when it comes to IT infrastructure. Even the increased establishment of start-ups and SMEs are very well utilizing advanced technology tools to provide excellent web solutions.
Supportive Govt. Policies: It’s hard to find countries that have favorable and supportive government policies, whereas India is popular in terms of IT industry policies. The
Information Technology Act
and all other IT policies in India are supporting the industry’s growth.
Apart from the major these, there are many other perks of outsourcing web development tO India like consistent in quality, round the clock support, faster project delivery, and much more.
