Have you ever wanted to get a software development project over the line quicker with fewer bugs, and reduce the amount you’re spending on it? If so, how about buying in a managed testing service that pledges to do just that, but for a set price within a pre-determined timeline?
Unlike traditional off-and near-shoring where individual parts of a business are transferred overseas to different lower-cost locations in a bid to save money, a managed service offering provides outsourcing on a proactive basis. Under the terms of such an agreement, a managed service provider takes managerial responsibility for certain business functions, such as testing, with the aim of utilising cheaper resources based overseas but maintaining the responsibility and quality expected in the home location.
You wouldn’t use a caterer to decorate your house
It is in effect, like hiring a caterer to provide food at a party or a decorator to paint your house as they have the specific expertise to get the job done effectively to a higher standard than you, as a generalist, would be able.
For many organisations, entering into a managed service agreement enables them to take advantage of new developments that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to. It also frees up individuals to focus on core services or adding value in other areas. Meanwhile, the increased competition and the ongoing pressure on costs, in particular wages, mean that many organisations are attracted to the idea of a managed service. In fact, a recent report by US research company MarketsandMarkets found that the global managed services market is expected to grow by about 11 per cent a year over each of the next four years to almost $258 billion.
