If you are looking for developers to help you with your project in Kyiv, you’ve probably come across the term “IT staff expansion”. But what exactly does this mean? How does it differ from similar services?
Software development is not an easy task, and in most cases, the process requires you to hire new developers multiple times throughout the project lifecycle. Services such as recruitment, IT outsourcing, staffing, dedicated teams, or team expansion are useful for business owners looking for talent and skills. However, it is often difficult to distinguish between them.
This article is intended to help you understand what teambuilding is, how it differs from specialized team services, and what value it brings to organizations that choose to outsource software development to companies and corporations.
Along with the development of IT infrastructure in enterprises, proper control over all IT resources of the company is becoming an increasingly difficult task. Consequently, there is a need for tools that provide administrators and managers with the information they need to efficiently and professionally manage their entire infrastructure – the so-called IT asset management. A good infrastructure management system should help to solve the main problems, such as: limited resources of IT staff, the need to quickly implement new programs and services, optimization and cost reduction.
What is IT team expansion, IT outsourcing services? Basically, it is the process of finding developers with the appropriate knowledge and culture to match your software development projects. In a team expansion model, you hire one or more developers who have the specific skills required for a given project. You are responsible for managing these team members, often with the help of your outsourcing partner. By leveraging the resources in this model, you can be confident that your IT team will do a good job and fit with your company’s culture.
How does IT team expansion work?
Staff development services are usually offered by reputable companies that have been in the market for many years and have become known for their quality among the local developer communities, such as iTizzi Software Development Company. Through this work, agencies have access to a huge pool of programmers with diverse skills. This, in turn, allows you to quickly build the right teams. Team development is a long-term collaboration approach. It is about working with a client to solve a problem. Such an ambitious project creates space for developer development and increases talent retention. The Team Expansion Model is based on the latest team management practices that allow for rapid team building and ensure that every team member is motivated and satisfied.
Benefits of working with an IT partner
Cooperation with specialized outsourcing partners in Vinnytsia, Dnipro, Lviv and Odesa, such as iTizzi, which has experience in providing teams and IT professionals for various IT projects, regardless of industry, provides the following benefits:
- Quality is a very widely understood value, which should be visible from the very beginning in the way of communication, response time to the presented demand, flexibility in cooperation and, of course, in the competence and experience of the specialists who will implement the project.
- Scalability – the ability to expand or contract a team in a relatively short time to be able to respond to changing circumstances and needs.
- Ensuring business continuity – in the event of an unexpectedly long absence of IT team members, the possibility of replacement by persons with identical competence.
- Changes – the possibility of changing the employee at the request of the customer in case of significant objections to his work.
- Transfer of knowledge – in the event of completion of a project or collaboration, transfer of key knowledge to the client’s team, which takes over the project.
- It is also worth noting that in the case of outsourcing cooperation, we pay only for services in a pure form, without additional costs incurred by the outsourcing partner.
Regardless of whether we already have experience in outsourcing projects or this is a new situation for us, the labor market, accelerating digital transformation and not slowing down competition should make us think about such an opportunity. Undoubtedly, this is a quick way to create a fully functional team of experts in a specific area of interest to us in a very short time. However, an obstacle may be our own organizational structure, which may not be ready to accept outsourced teams. However, this is not an insurmountable problem. In this case, it is always worth discussing this topic with a potential partner – iTizzi company, which will present solutions that can be implemented in the project so that the team can best match our company and its specifics.
