Explore the Best Regions to Source a Software Development Team in a new Article by Intetics

Working with an in-house software development team can result in lost opportunities, from cost savings and increased efficiency to a deeper talent pool. Gone are the days when the US, China, and India were the only coveted development regions: Eastern Europe is quickly rising to the forefront. Even tech giants like Google, Microsoft, and IBM have begun to focus on this promising area by opening software development centers. Overhauling the previously adopted team structure may be questionable, as it brings along additional recruiting and onboarding. There’s a way around that: Remote In-Sourcing®. The new article uncovers the advantages of hiring from other regions, as well as the most promising tech hotspots.

Best Regions to Source a Software Development Team

Reasons to Consider Other Regions to Find Developers
There are many benefits of working with an offshore development team, including:
· Cost savings
· Access to a global talent pool
· Increased efficiency

Top Regions to Source Talent

1. Eastern Europe
Eastern European countries like Poland or Moldova are home to many talented software developers and have become a popular destination for outsourcing in recent years. The region offers several advantages, including competitive pricing, a large pool of talent, and a good communication infrastructure. What’s more, the tech landscape is rapidly growing — for instance, Poland has become a destination for outsourced business services; this sector has grown three times faster in Poland than in India.
There are also tax incentives in Eastern European countries that aim to attract IT employers and developers. Furthermore, Eastern Europe is home to some of the best tech universities in the world, including the Warsaw University of Technology and POLITEHNICA. These universities each produce 1,000-2,000 graduates per year, making the talent pool even wider.

2. Caucasus
At the Southeast, there is another rapidly developing tech region: the Caucasus. The countries therein (Georgia and Armenia, in particular) are viable sourcing candidates. While the Caucasus might not be as popular as an offshoring region as Eastern Europe, it is experiencing continuous, sustainable growth in the IT sector.
For example, over the last fiscal year, Armenia managed to increase the YoY growth rate of ICT revenue from 2.8% to 7.4%. Caucasus has a well-educated, English-proficient workforce, strong IT university programs, and solid government support for the IT sector. And yet, labor and operating costs are even lower than in Eastern Europe.

Selecting a Team Model
After determining which regions are more referable to source developers from, there is a need to choose a team model. Distributed development is one of the most common methods of working with overseas developers, but it comes with its own challenges. Remote In-Sourcing® addresses those challenges and combines the benefits of in-house and offshore development.
Below are advantages and disadvantages of both models.

Distributed Teams Model
This model implies hiring decentralized teams located across various regions. The teams will use collaborative technologies to plan, design, build, test, and manage software. This model is excellent for saving costs and improving efficiency, but there is a need to scour the globe for top talent, which can be time-consuming.
Pros:
· Building a distributed team is much faster than an in-house one.
· Resources can be moved around easily.
· Access to a wider talent pool.
Cons:
· Management and communication can be more difficult when the team is geographically distributed.
· With a wider talent pool to source from, the “paradox of choice” is probable.

Remote In-Sourcing® Model
This model comprises working with a vendor who handles all the logistics and hiring. Unlike the distributed team model, there is no need to deal with the hassle of recruiting developers, setting up workspaces, or maintaining operations. It’s all about a dedicated remote team that integrates with an in-house team and is exclusively dedicated to the project, while keeping all the intellectual property.
Pros:
· The fastest way to build a development team, without worrying about any of the hiring processes.
· Full control over the team.
· The team can easily be scaled up and down as needed.
· etc.
Cons:
· As the team is distributed across geographical lines, it’s important to take extra care with communications.

If you want to unlock the cost savings, productivity, and flexibility of a distributed team — but without actually scouring the globe for talent — then Intetics’ proprietary Remote In-Sourcing® Model might be the right solution.
