Outsourcing as an antidote to rising budget and cost pressures

The cost of labor in the software engineering industry has become overwhelming for US companies. There is no end in sight to the ever-growing tech talent shortage. A record talent gap for software engineers contributed to an overall 23% increase in onshore development rates in 2022.

As budgets come under even more pressure, outsourcing remains the most cost-effective way to keep digital strategies on track. IT leaders can successfully source their software development teams in weeks rather than months, all while saving 40-70% of overall costs.
