How to Develop Software Better and Faster:
A Guide to Strategic Outsourcing
Art & Logic

Definition of OUTSOURCING:
a contractual relationship
where an external firm
assumes responsibility for a
service or product.
the strategic choice to have
expert outsiders fulfill a
business need.
Making the decision to outsource critical software for your hardware product requires
careful consideration. Ultimately, your company's name will be on the work, so you
need to be certain that the finished product is top-quality. Frequently, deadlines are
tight and budgets are limited.

In this guide, Art & Logic, Inc. explains the benefits of outsourcing software
development and how to avoid outsourcing pitfalls. This article prepares you to select a
qualified software engineering firm and describes how to maximize the success of that


There are many reasons to look to a software engineering services firm to develop all
or part of the software for your hardware product. Specialized knowledge and
experience, reduced risk, increased flexibility and the development practices of the
outsourcing firm are all factors contributing to the value of outsourcing software

Software Engineering Is Different

One of the primary reasons to consider outsourcing is when a project is outside your
company's core competence. Investing man-hours and budget in unfamiliar tools and
technologies reduces your team's effectiveness at producing your hardware product.
Turning to an outside provider with expertise in a different OS, a complex SDK, or a
new communication protocol is smart. Results can be achieved quickly when the
engineers have experience with the software development tools, technologies, and
processes required.
Expert Engineers Are Hard to Find

Creating software for hardware products requires specialized knowledge. The right
and expertise can make the difference between success and failure; but finding,
hiring, and integrating new staff is difficult and expensive. A quicker solution is to hire
an outsource firm that has already recruited talented engineers and designers with the
expertise you require. A top outsource firm can provide your company with superior
software engineers. You can choose to have the firm's staff complete the entire project
or have their experts integrate with your own engineering team.
