You are developing a product, but you're short on some developers to meet the deadlines. Or your business has its own IT team, but you're missing some experts for your unique project. You need to invest in some development but also save some money.
We understand your struggle.
You’re probably thinking about hiring extra developers for yourself, but it takes time and money, and maybe you don't need them for the long run. It would help if you found something different to achieve your goals.
Nearshoring is a smart move because it allows you to have the required developers and save money while still getting high-quality results. But how does it work?
Nearshoring means that instead of outsourcing your software development projects overseas, you hire developers located closer to home. Nearshoring gives you access to more reliable software developers and shorter communication distances, which in turn helps your projects succeed faster.
Nearshoring is a form of outsourcing that can save you money. It's also called near sourcing, nearshoring, or nearshore outsourcing. It works by having your project outsourced to a company located in another country, somewhere close to your company.
Nearshoring has several benefits. Let's take a look at some of the top ones:
Cost savings: The most significant benefit to nearshoring is the cost savings from paying less for labour and materials. If you're looking for low-cost manufacturing, East Europe--especially Budapest--is a booming nearshoring region with skilled developers and experts.
Faster production timeframes: When you have a high demand for a product, time is money—and if you need your product quickly, nearshoring can help your business get what it needs faster than traditional outsourcing methods allow.
ASAP access to experts: If you need someone with special knowledge quickly, nearshoring is an excellent option. For example, if you develop on AWS but need to use Azure and MS APIs, involving an expert can help. You don't need to lose time with hiring procedures.
Regarding nearshoring, cultural fit is an essential part of the process. It can help you work together more effectively and efficiently. If you're not sure what I mean by cultural fit, here are some examples:
• You understand each other better because you have a similar way of thinking.
• Due to the time zones, all experts are easily accessible during your working hours.
• You build trust and confidence in each other because you understand how your partner works best.
• You can work faster and more effectively because there's no need to explain yourself or go back over previous decisions with someone who doesn't share your perspective on how things should be done.
• You have similar working morals, which results in a smoother working sessions and team cohesion.
Choosing the right software development company is essential to your business. It should be a good fit for you and have a proven track record and expertise in your industry. Here are some factors you can look for when choosing a software development company:
• Does it have a good understanding of your business? Do they know what problems you want to be solved? Are they able to explain how their technology will solve those problems?
• Have they worked with other companies like yours? What kind of results did they get from those projects?
• Is their team mostly comprised of senior developers or junior programmers fresh out of college? This isn't something that can be answered by looking at their website alone—you'll need to talk directly with them about their team's experience level before deciding whether this is someone you want working on your project! Sometimes you're short on juniors who can help you with quantitative work, but sometimes you need an expert.
• Don't regret the time for double-checking! Be sure your nearshoring partner always tells the truth about their candidates – the whole truth (and nothing but the truth). Do they have certificates in the required competencies? Are they in employment with your potential partner, or do they have a mediating role between you and the developer?
The importance of reliable, high-skilled developers cannot be stressed enough when developing a digital product. They can help you achieve your business goals faster. The first step is to select a company that knows your business and will work with you to understand its objectives before doing any development work. This way, the team can write code that aligns perfectly with what you need from them to achieve those goals as quickly as possible and without running into roadblocks.
In conclusion, nearshoring is an excellent choice for companies that want to save money and improve their cost efficiency. You don't have to give up the opportunity to develop your business and invest in technological renewal. But there's more to it than just financial benefits: you can also find high-skilled developers who will work with you to achieve your business goals faster.
Sitecore JSS and Sitecore Headless is out for a few years now but we started our first headless project last year. Our chosen stack was Sitecore Headless 10.2 with Next.js SDK (19.0.0) using Server-Side Rendering (SSR). I would like to talk about 2 main topics in this post. The first one is how the development processes are changed because of the changed tech stack. The second part is about the technical challenges we met during the implementation.
Serverless was at its 2nd major version when we were building the project and their slogan was that you can easily deploy your application with the framework to most cloud platforms – including AWS, Azure and GCP.
Imagine that you’re a software development company that started to work with British and North American companies a long time ago, preferring AWS as their cloud provider. So, you have already picked up a significant amount of knowledge and experience about AWS. Then, some of your clients’ recent developments required some Azure and Microsoft API-related knowledge as well to achieve their goals. Let’s review our two recent case studies where having a partner experienced in Azure turned out to be beneficial and efficient for our client.
