4 More Benefits of Outsourcing to a Nearshore Development Team

4 More Reasons to use a Nearshore Development Team

If you are reading this article, you are probably a business owner or employee considering how outsourcing might affect your company’s return on investment. You might have already researched the differences between an offshore and a nearshore development company. We have already talked about the benefits of nearshore outsourcing in a previous post, but since there are so many potential gains from a nearshore company, we decided to highlight 4 more benefits below.

Setting up your own development team is a challenging task. This is why most of our clients have decided to rely on our experience; Kambda has pretty much become an external department they can always go to. They have also told us that one of the main concerns they faced before making their decision was “How am I going to let a third party manage such an important part of my business?”

We want to provide a list of benefits that will show you the benefits of hiring an external team can outweigh the issues you may encounter.

Quick Hands-On Development Work

As our current clients could tell you, if you require some development work we can start right away and right of the bat. We are able to quickly plan your project since we already have a team of experienced developers ready to work on your project. We also have different skillsets, which means we can support you in different areas, languages or projects.

If you plan to work in-house, setting up the right team for your project could potentially take months. You would have to make sure you have the right physical space, acquire software and hardware, find the right people, hire them, and solve many other challenges along the way. It could already be too late to execute a time-sensitive project by the time you set up your team.

Seamless Team Management and Growth

With a nearshore development company, you have the chance to provide support to your in-house team as required. If you were planning to grow your team, you would have to spend at least 2 to 3 weeks in finding the right people even before any project planning takes place. Additionally, your new hires would require some more onboarding time learning about your company and the project itself.

A nearshore team is already built and ready to go if your in-house team requires back up. Not only that, but you can grow it as much as you can without the hassle of hiring new team members directly. We do it all for you!

A Wider Range of Technologies

With an in-house team, you are required to work with the skillsets and technology expectations your team has experience with. If you require work in a different field, you would have to spend significantly more time and resources in training and learning or hiring an additional resource with this skillset, even if you don’t have enough work to fill up its time.

Nearshore development companies, on the other hand, have been exposed to different skills and technologies due to their nature. This means they have more experience on broader scope of work. A team like this can help you fill in the gaps so you get high-quality work on time and in-budget.

Also, nearshore agile development teams can use their experience to help you avoid common development and design issues, increasing efficiency.

High Adaptability to your Business

Developing software is not only about coding, it also requires an almost perfect understanding of the business side and building a bridge between it and the technical aspects of the company.

An experienced outsourcing team will have already built positions, methodologies, and processes to help them fall in place, almost perfectly, with the requirements, and business side of a company. This is ideal to help kick-start a process efficiently tackling issues with higher precision, less churn and waste.

A nearshore team will apply any knowledge or skill acquired in a project to the next. Providing greater value while shortening the time it takes to adapt and learn when getting started with a new company.

Why is React Native App Development worth it?

Why is React Native App Development worth it?

The Future of Mobile App Development with React Native

React Native app development is highly known for making the lives of UI developers easier; it is built to create apps that can be used in both Android and iOS with the same codebase.

React appeared to change our perception of how we create apps, it was then accompanied by React Native, and both were available to develop mobile apps for both operating systems. Since it was initially meant to work on mobile platforms, it now maintains core elements that make it feel more like web development; JavaScript, JSX, and Flexbox. Finally, react-native-web was engineered to enable React Native developers to take their apps and put them back on browsers.

Interest in React Native is stronger now than ever. This makes it a robust framework to take into account when assessing some mobile app development solutions. Companies like Pinterest, Skype, Tesla, Uber, and many more have relied on it to build their cross-platform mobile presence.

It is understandable to want to avoid things learning technologies that might die off in the future but React Native is not one of those. Increasingly, more and more developers are learning and implementing this promising framework.

Some of React Native’s Current Limitations

Since it is a relatively new framework, React Native’s available documentation is still not highly comprehensive. Even though Facebook and the React community are putting an effort, there are some React Native components that are not well covered in the documentation available. Due to the same issue, how recent it is, many main elements seem to still be a work in progress, and some of the code’s quality might be disappointing.

You can use third-party components, but their numbers are really limited when compared to other libraries created by the community for iOS or Android. Additionally, compatibility and support are not guaranteed for these components.

As you see, most of React Native’s limitations can be solved in the future, once the framework is even more widely used and experimented with by the community. Since interest on it is still evident, it makes sense to think that most of these issues will be solved in the coming years.

Why Choose React Native to build your Application

Yesterday, creating universal apps was a thing of dreams; today, that dream has come true. Though it is an ideal option for cross-platform mobile app development, there are many things to consider around using React Native. Even if it sounds similar, React Native is not equal to Titanium or Cordova as it was created, since it keeps the differences between platforms in mind. Its crucial goal is to harness the best things about React libraries, which work wonders in the web and bring them to the native mobile apps without having to hire different teams of developers for each system.

React Native embeds JS files in the app and runs them locally, making run-times smoother. Additionally, you could make the app fetch remote data when connectivity is available; which results in a quick way of updating an application, evading the App Store’s complex validation process.

This framework is mostly built based on JavaScript and the Paradigms of React. This is why it makes sense to have a React Native mobile development team mainly composed of JS engineers as, hopefully, they will already be knowledgeable in the paradigms running the framework, like React, EcmaScript, Flex layout, and Redux.

Creating a mobile app in React Native is worth it, as it can be used as one single language to create the UI of the different versions of an app. Also, it is a framework with a bright future in front of it; it is backed by a thriving community who has set long-term plans for it. React Native has been transforming the way we create exciting new apps with the practicality of cutting down your expenses and execution time. Try it now, talk to a React Native specialist!

NOC: How It Can Help You With Your Infrastructure

NOC: How It Can Help You With Your Infrastructure

By: perfilestecnologicos.com

What is NOC?

It stands for Network Operations Center, and it is an operations center for network infrastructure, which constantly monitors networks, as well as their designated devices. This is done in order to maintain network and servers in optimal condition. Engineers specialized in network equipment, servers and security applications monitor data, solve issues, update information, and implement continuous improvement.

An operation center with network infrastructure has multiple levels to classify specialists according to the category of service:

  • Level 1
  • Level 2
  • Level 3

Therefore, some issues are escalated within the NOC, previous to contacting an engineer or field specialists.

And why outsourcing this type of service? As stated by Nap It Global Network Solutions (“¿Por qué tercerizar…?,” 2018) the current corporate scenario is very different from the one we experienced some years ago. The processes make use of files in the cloud and complex software, making the development of the company directly connected to the proper performance of the network.

This is when the NOC becomes relevant, given that through this active monitoring service, it is possible to identify and solve issues before they occur, which allows for more security for your network and internal processes. Because the NOC is composed by a series of tools and specific processes, the creation of a specific, own area in the company for this purpose may represent a high investment. Furthermore, there are few professionals in the market with experience and the appropriate requirements to run this type of analysis, making the outsourcing of this service an option of a lower cost and higher service quality (“¿Por qué tercerizar…?,” 2018).

Why To Choose Custom Software Developments?

Why To Choose Custom Software Developments?

Let’s start with the basics, what is custom software development? Custom software (also called tailor-made software) consists in the development of software systems which satisfy needs, adapt to different processes and fulfill specific characteristics within an organization

Why should organizations consider this as an option?

It satisfies real needs
When analyzing the requirements and other important features for the design of custom software, the organization’s needs are specifically defined and, consequently, the best way to solve them. Therefore, the result is exactly what the organization is calling for.

Cost reduction and investment recovery
One issue that we should be aware of is that custom software generally (because there are exceptions) is an option with a considerable initial cost due to all the effort required. However, once the software is operational, the cost of maintaining the operations or processes of the organization are greatly reduced over an extended period, which allows not only to recover the investment in the medium or long term (depending on the size of the software), but also to see the savings in the form of daily profits for the organization by supporting and optimizing the different processes for which the software was created.

Saving time and improving productivity
Generally, custom software development is built with cutting-edge techniques, technologies and tools, allowing us to build up-to-date, optimized and easier-to-use software systems. This represents a great advantage over software created a few years ago, which have not been updated.

Quality guarantee
Due to the construction process, the different types of tests applied and the feedback by the organization, it is possible to achieve a high quality, since both, the software provider and the organization, ensure compliance as to meet the company’s needs.

Ease of Adjustment and Maintenance
Custom software development generally complies with current standards and good practices. This helps to maintain and facilitate the development of adjustments, so they can evolve and adapt to the changes or growth of the organization.

Tailor made software vs Commercial Software
Previously, we mentioned that custom software development is an option, and this is because there are other ways to acquire software, such as commercial software or “canned” software. Here are some of the differences between these two types:

As noted, both types have their highs and lows and will depend strictly on the situation and needs of the organization to determine which is the best option.
