RATES, TRENDS AND EXPERT PREDICTIONS: Accelerance Releases its 2021-2022 Global Software Outsourcing Trends and Rates Guide

By Accelerance Research Team | June 3, 2021

A year of unprecedented disruption requires an unprecedented response. The depth and breadth of analysis in Accelerance’s new 2021-2022 Global Software Outsourcing Trends and Rates Guide is a deeper dive than ever before, featuring expanded commentary and expert insights from our position as the premier global outsourcing authority with two decades of experience in the industry.

Over the past 12 months, the COVID-19 pandemic has provided an enduring lesson in how smart outsourcing strategies can be used to respond effectively to sudden business shocks, and create a framework for long-term resiliency and value. Post-crisis challenges include the acceleration towards digital transformation, coupled with a severe talent gap, particularly in the US. We predict demand for high-tech skills in Western markets will grow in 2021 by a staggering 20% compared to the previous year – presenting both opportunities and obstacles in the months ahead.

  • High-impact trends shaping the industry in 2021
  • Why software developers are world’s most in-demand professionals 
  • Global software engineering rates, including a detailed breakdown for key roles in Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe, and South/Southeast Asia
  • The cost-quality trade off and how to make the right, value-based choices
  • Essential traits of enterprise-grade partners that drive outsourcing success

“The past 12 months have provided an enduring lesson in how software development outsourcing can be used to effectively respond to sudden business shocks and to then adapt for resiliency and strategic long-term value,” says Andy Hilliard, CEO of Accelerance. “Solid external relationships helped US companies to weather last year’s crisis. Now, the use of best-in-class partners will accelerate global software outsourcing in a new reality where wide acceptance of distributed work models makes colocation mostly irrelevant.”

This analysis has been mined from the Accelerance global network of more than 250 software development partners from the top 1% of firms across 40+ countries and 60 industries. To find out more, download the Accelerance 2021-2022 Global Software Outsourcing Trends and Rates Guide now.
