Traditional outsourcing and offshoring has remained relatively under-challenged for some time but the team at Panamoure is seeing the invisible / gig economy becoming more influential in the world of tech development.
To start with, we aren’t saying this new, emerging economy should be ignored – it has its part to play. For example, it’s a great place to start if you’re looking for a proof of concept or a one-off technology project. In fact, application development is one of the most frequently outsourced IT functions, with more than 60% of tech companies outsourcing at least a part of their application development.

What these challengers have been great at is driving down cost and helping small and mid-sized companies accelerate their development time. But this isn’t scalable which is a potential threat to both sides of the market.
Whilst independent freelancers are great at taking on key tech projects, especially app development, you might quickly become unstuck with any larger tech projects due to issues around security of data and compliance. You could consider this a solution for your phase one or alpha phase. Develop a concept and solution and then look to a more mature partner, capable of scaling and offering all the necessary security, compliance and assurances you need to realise your commercial ambitions.
