What is Outsourcing?

Although outsourcing is the practice of contracting the work of one organization to another company or individual, in software development outsourcing can refer to any number of business practices that involve handing over parts of an application's development process to an external contractor. Outsourcing may be done when there are too many demands on a software engineer's time or when quality assurance is difficult for in-house developers, but it is most often used so that companies can take advantage of economies of scale by hiring low-cost developers who are located in countries with lower living expenses than the United States.

Topics related for outsourcing in software development include services such as freelancer sourcing, full-time hiring, and job board listings. Additional topics related to outsourcing include distributed teams, remote workers, and offshoring.
