What is the best way to outsource software development?

img 1 ingles

When a client needs a software development, it is vital to analyze various aspects such as the requirements, project duration, and whether it is an upgrade to an existing application or the development of a brand new one among other aspects; all this to determine the best way to contract that digital solution. In companies such as Doctus, there are two ways of contracting: agile teams and software factories. 


Let’s get a better understanding of what these two forms of contracting are all about:

  1. Agile teams: Scrum teams or agile teams, are a set of cross-functional software development professionals with all the necessary skills to continuously develop a digital product within a given timeframe. In this form of contracting, the client pays monthly for services of said team.
  2. Software Factory: In software development companies, software factory contracting, also known as time and material, is mainly based on contracting a specific number of hours of one or more software development professionals to implement a digital solution, as it is an hourly modality, the requirements must be clear and specific in order to fulfill the objective within the agreed hours.

It is very important to keep in mind that in software development, the overall timeline is unpredictable.

At first glance, the cost of development with an agile team may be higher than that of a factory one, since, as mentioned above, a cross-functional team may comprise a scrum master, various developers, a technical leader, QA and other professionals that may be required. Nevertheless, the end result will be profitable and scalable. Whereas a factory can have one or multiple experts hired on part-time or full-time basis.


Therefore, if it is a large company that requires robust, high impact and constantly scalable projects, it is recommended to hire an agile team. On the other hand, if it is a small project, with very specific definitions and few variables, a good alternative is a factory.

At Doctus we offer both types of contracting and either is compatible with the scrum methodology, so if you have any software development needs, do not hesitate to contact us to be advised on the best alternative for you.
