The advantages of Dedicated Development Teams

Leaning on Tech Partners to get the customized, 100% allocated and multidisciplinary “High-Performance Squads” needed to make things happen.

Having the right talent at the right time is key to any company’s success. People are the center of the business and even in this digital world we live in, they are the ones who build and consume the technology that streamlines our day to day. The problem is, as we all know, IT talent is scarce, and organizations really struggle to attract and retain it. That’s why many of them are embracing the “Dedicated Development Teams” model, the same is to say, leaning on Tech Partners to get the customized, 100% allocated and multidisciplinary “High-Performance Squads” they need to make things happen.

In this model, all members of the team work exclusively on the same project, in a full-time mode and reporting directly to the customer, as an in-house team would do. Also, they can work both remotely and in-person – or a blend of the two. The best part? IT departments gain the skilled professionals and delivery capacity required at each time without having to worry about recruitment and bureaucratic work.

For all this and much more, Dedicated Development Teams are a great option for companies that want a team of experts ready to transform their ideas into reality:

  1. Fast time to market

You can get the job done and launch new digital products and services much faster by accessing the right pool of tech professionals.

  1. Address talent shortage

Companies around the globe struggle to find the right IT people in a market that is not able to answer all the huge demands. By choosing to work with Dedicated Development Teams from a trusted Tech Partner your company will be able to always have the proper specialists available.

  1. Time efficiency

This hassle-free approach (that can be provided in agile nearshore) is also more time-efficient when compared to hiring an in-house team locally. In fact, it takes less time for an outsourcer to put together and setup a cross-functional team using their resources and unique strategies than for a company to recruit and train a full team.

  1. Scalability and flexibility

Flexible composition throughout the time according to the needs at each moment – somehow these are the magic words on getting Dedicated Development Teams from a Tech Partner. For instance, a “Tech Squad” may include 1 Tech Lead, 2 Developers and 1 QA. A “Business Squad” may include 1 Scrum Master, 1 Business Analyst, 1 Tech Lead and 1 Senior Developer, and an “Agile Squad” may include 1 Scrum Master, 1 Senior Developer, 1 Developer, 1 Mobile Developer, 1 QA and 2 Developers. Requirements may change, and new competencies added. With this collaboration model, the team can rapidly grow or shrink or be empowered with new specific skills.

  1. Cost-efficiency

Obtaining the best solution at the best price is the goal of every IT budget. With the Dedicated Development Teams outsourcing approach, your company can achieve both.

  1. Short or long-term projects

Is your company looking to modernize just a small application? Or to continuously develop and optimize systems as your customers’ and employees’ needs evolve? No matter what the answer might be, Dedicated Development Teams are elastic enough. These specialists are ready to add value to your projects for weeks, months or years.
