Subcontracting in the development of mobile applications: advantages and disadvantages you should know
Subcontracting is one of the most widespread practices in the technology industry. When companies want to develop applications for themselves or their clients, they have the possibility to do it “in-house”, but they will require some key pieces to perform this task, like a human resources department that finds people with the necessary talent.
One of the advantages of doing it within the same company is that project monitoring is constant, unlike when it is outsourced. Let's take a closer look at the advantages and disadvantages of this methodology:
For a while now, companies entered the trend of using mobile applications in their businesses; however, many of them decided to use them to "be there" and show themselves as innovative companies. But having a mobile application goes far beyond having a platform for informing customers of your products or services; Thinking this is a big mistake, a mobile application should be an investment that generates income and not an expense.
When a company hires software development services or mobile applications, many mistakes are made both prior to hiring and during the process. However, these errors occur bilaterally, that is to say, not only from the company that offers the service, but also from the contractor.
In May of 2015 Google released a document called Mobile App Marketing Insights, it indicated that more than 40% of mobile applications were discovered through the searches in the application store. This is currently a trend, the importance of appearing in the search results made by users, is the pillar of growth for mobile applications.
Imagine the following scenario: you have a problem in your company and want to hire the services of a software development provider, you talk to them and approve the proposal that you’ve been sent, about three months later things are not going well, the application has been delivered on time but with a lot of bugs, users complain in the app store and leave negative ratings. What’s the solution? You now have to hire another company to redesign the application and therefore the initial estimated costs have increased, sound familiar?
An analysis by the Russell Reynolds Associates indicates that only a 29% of business leaders seek to face the traditional approaches to cause disruption in their companies. Imagine that your business is inside of this percentage. What would happen if “out of the blue sky”, the competitor decrease the friction and cause a disruption in the market which unlock their products or services?
