We don’t do outsourcing.
We don’t do body shopping.
We do codevelopment!
See our comparison below and decide on the right tool for yourself.
Of course we consider codevelopment the best way to easily spread the capacity of the developer team. But do you know why? We created this comparison table so you can see the differences clearly.
|Fast and easy adding of new people to the project||Sometimes|
|The whole team share the same processes and tools|
|The feedback loop in development is fast and effective||Sometimes|
|You get flexibility to lower the capacity fast||Yes in the USA,
not in EU
|Depends on contract|
|The team is externally coached|
|Your managers don’t have to take care of daily operations|
|You can get new suggestions for business|
|Enables new ways of cooperation (like remote)|
|You can get a coordinated team of people who know each other||
|Budgeting||Usually salary plus bonus||Paid per hour/work day||Paid per hour/work day||Often fixed price or multiple milestones paid separately|
||No extra expenses||
|Cooperation||Close cooperation as one team.
Using the same tools, same methodologies and culture.
|Absolutely different methodologies, tools. Usually no cooperation between teams.|
|Flexibility||Flexible in daily operations, hiring and firing can be an issue (especially in EU).||Flexible in daily operations, hiring and firing is not a problem.||Usually less flexible in daily operations, hiring and firing is not a problem|
|Requirements on your management||Your managers need to manage daily operations, cooperation and scope of work. Education of the people and their motivation is on you.||You can focus on your business, business scope and what’s the most valuable. Daily operations and other issues are managed by us.|
|Ability to acquire talent||Usually limited to the area that is reachable by you.||Better as the talent pool is shared between the company and the business partner.||Much easier if you adopt remote codevelopment like we do in Flexiana.
You get direct access to a big pool of talent.
|Better as the talent pool is shared. But the talent is in some way separated from the company, so it is not so valuable.|
