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.

We are pleased to announce the launch of a ninth pillar in our IT Due Diligence process, which identifies and generates value creation opportunities for private equity (PE) investors. This new pillar is designed to uncover additional levers for growth and drive both immediate 100-day plans and long-term digital value creation initiatives.  

The private equity (PE) landscape has seen better days. M&A activity is down, and exits have plummeted to their lowest point in over a decade, dropping 66% from their peak in 2021. High interest rates have made refinancing debt structures from as far back as 2019 increasingly expensive. As a result, exits are becoming more protracted, and many buyout funds are struggling to offload portfolio companies amid an uncertain environment that negatively impacts valuations. Now more than ever, there is a pressing need to maximise the value of existing portfolios.
