Software development outsourcing is massively popular with companies in developed countries. To minimize the cost and reap the benefits of global talent, these companies opt for offshore IT development. There is no perfect or the correct way of joining hands with outsourcing firms and it all depends on the needs and priorities of the company. However, industry experts have categorized different engagement models based on commonly entered agreements. 

Software-Outsourcing

Here, we’ll let you know about one such model derived on the degree of software outsourcing — low, high, and complete.

  • Low-Level Outsourcing

It is the most basic level of outsourcing in which quality assurance and root cause analysis related work is executed offshore. The tasks outsourced are software delivery, low-level coding, manual testing, etc. It is usually undertaken to transfer the low-risk work to an outside company.

  • High-Level Outsourcing

The high level of outsourcing is chosen when the firm has proved its worth in completing and delivering low-level outsourcing tasks. In this, a huge portion of development and QA efforts are outsourced. The delegated tasks in addition to the tasks of low-level outsourcing are project management, test design validation, architecture design, etc.

  • Complete Technical Outsourcing

Companies whose requirements are of customized software solutions, and have bare minimum inhouse resources opt for complete technical outsourcing. In such models, the company provides the firm with product/business requirement documentation, also known as PRD/BRD. Based on such documentation and continuous communication, the offshore team design, develop, and implement the software as per the company’s requirement.
