REDWOOD CITY, Calif.Jan. 16, 2018 -- Accelerance, a US-based consulting firm which helps technology leaders create and execute effective strategies for global software outsourcing, today announced the launch of of its latest eBook, 2018 Guide to Global Software Outsourcing Rates. The guide features global outsourcing rates based on a variety of factors such as how rates are calculated and hourly rates for software development based on job title and region. The eBook is available for free download here.

"The top technology growth inhibitors continue to be labors costs and the availability of skilled workers," says Andy Hilliard, President and Chief Revenue Officer at Accelerance. "Global development is the model that makes sense - when done right. While quality is the most important factor when outsourcing, everyone wants to know 'How much will I save?' and those savings are significant to any IT budget."

What Tech Leaders Will Learn from the eBook

In addition to global hourly rates as reported by more than 700 software development companies around the world, the eBook also describes:

  • How outsourcing rates are calculated

  • The difference between onshore, offshore and nearshore outsourcing rates

  • In-house employee costs versus outsourcing rates

  • Sample cost savings from outsourcing

  • Total cost of engagement

  • Top factors affecting quoted rates

"We're pleased to release the 2018 software development rates guide, which provides real-world rates reported to us by over 700 software companies around the world. Each of these companies has been researched by Accelerance and meets our standards for software outsourcing excellence," says Hilliard.

2018 Guide to Global Software Outsourcing Rates can be downloaded here.
