We are in golden era where organizations from across the worlds have opened their minds about outsourcing and offshoring their work to vendors based out of different locations so that their IT projects get properly managed, within their budgets and with quality. This era enabled many organizations to portray themselves as independent software vendors and reap the benefits of globalization and outsourcing even things are changing now and organizations are thinking twice before even considering outsourcing their projects in Asian countries. They are now hesitant and not willing to cross the bridge easily to connect with vendors and rely on them for quality deliverables.
There are thousands of sellers now in outsourcing market claiming to be a leading solution provider which enabled companies to shortlist from a big list; although the main question which every organization has in their mind is whether they can rely on this vendor, will they suffice the need, do they have relevant experience, do they understand the requirement, can they get the quality deliverables or will their idea be safe and secured and above all how they will shortlist the vendors? Outsourcing is no longer related to low development rates or access to small groups – it has now grown to a level where organizations are more interested in quality and well-structured processes. They are willing to shed extra money provided their timelines are met, solution is in budget and quality is maintained.
Internet is full of blogs, news related to how poorly companies are suffering from bad quality of code, deliverables etc. I have personally spoken to many decision makers who decided to move from one vendor to another just because of quality concerns and unfortunately that's the most difficult part of this outsourcing industry. It is really hard to find which vendor or solution provider is worth spending money with and to stick with since there is no such matrix available to judge them especially when we speak about globally located sellers. This trend is hurting the industry since organizations are losing faith and vendors are required to push their services to win the confidence.
In order to eliminate above issues, there is an immediate need of a group or consultants who have studied the marketing and are working towards achieving this goal. They are required to remove such philosophy by assisting organizations through analyzing their requirements and helping them to find the right solution and theby, connecting them with companies / vendors who can provide such solutions at competitive prices and which fit into the organizations' budgets and with high quality. It will be so much easier for companies if they can get an access to a pool of companies offering IT project management solutions which are hand-picked by those dedicated consultants enabling companies to make sure that they get worth every penny that they are spending on their IT project development.
