Today, from startups to big companies, like Microsoft and Google, businesses choose to outsource software development as a great alternative to save a lot of time and money. They hire external software teams located overseas to build a software product while their in-house team can concentrate on developing other features or even products. Software outsourcing might be the right solution for your project too. However, before choosing the outsource software developer partner, you need to know some essentials of this type of collaboration with software development companies from different countries. Here we provide the list of the best countries to outsource software development and their peculiarities in terms of costs, reliability, and professionalism. India India is the classics of software outsourcing in the world. It’s the number one on the list, as it’s been the pioneering country that started outsourcing software services to companies from around the world. One of the most significant advantages of software outsourcing in India is a large pool of IT professionals with various technical backgrounds, comparatively lower prices for services than in the USA and Europe, and a high English language proficiency level. Furthermore, India is located in a timezone that is equally convenient for online communication with clients from both the US and Asia. Ukraine Ukraine is one of the best countries for outsourcing software development in the world. Companies like to build their software in Ukraine because it’s much cheaper than in most European countries, the Americas, and Australia. Although English is not widely used by the Ukrainian population in general, around 80% of the IT community speaks English well. That’s why the language barrier with Ukrainian software developers is minimal. Moreover, the local government pays particular attention to bringing up the new tech-oriented generation. Today, we can see a great number of IT-specialised educational programs arising in this country. Software engineering is a fastly growing and expanding industry in Ukraine. It’s well-popularised as one of the most prestigious professions there. It helps to generate more and more IT talents. China China is one of the top outsourced countries as well. Its most significant benefit is a significantly less expensive software development cost. The overall labor cost is much cheaper than in other countries due to the overpopulation problem and high professional competition in China. It creates a challenging and stressful environment for local people. However, it’s an undeniable advantage for businesses that have decided to outsource their software projects to China. Additionally, China has many high-level IT professionals that can offer you a full spectrum of product development services. The top proficiency is mostly the result of the high competition among developers and a narrow-specialized Chinese educational system.
