Technology is leading the charge for global digital change in all industries. There is no end in sight to the ever-growing tech talent shortage. The number of unfilled software development jobs in the US is estimated at more than 900,000 and is expected to top 1 million in the next five years.
Accelerance recommends distributing your resources globally as a way to tap into deep talent pools. Through outsourcing, IT leaders can source software teams in weeks rather than months and at rates that are a fraction of the onshore cost. Software outsourcing addresses the tech talent crisis by quickly filling critical team gaps and enhancing a range of essential skill sets, scaling to meet project needs.
