Why Offshore Software Development?

Software development is indeed a very costly process where an entire process requires experienced and skilled professional / programmers along with expensive equipment and resources. For a company that specializes in some other field than software, it is indeed cumbersome to maintain a dedicated team of software developers with a facility. This has given rise to offshore software development. With offshore software development, a company or organization can keep focused on its core area of operations while outsourcing its software related jobs to organizations that specialize in offshore software development, thereby not only gaining on costs, but also on core area of focus.

In last few years there has been a tremendous growth in offshore development service providing organizations. This is partly due to a rapid growth in digitized applications and partly due to IT globalization that has taken place with countries like India, Ireland, and Israel showing significant growth in software development.
