Diversify your nearshore partners

Why do many successful companies choose to diversify their nearshore partners? 

Because it is hard to have in-house knowledge in every technological talent on the market, from micro-services to computer vision, more than one nearshore supplier can bridge the gap between your in-house and already outsourced skills. 

The ultimate purpose of a nearshore software development project is to provide favorable commercial results. In the initial few talks, a strong potential partner should be able to grasp your vision, exchange ideas, and offer counsel and recommendations on how to execute key IT initiatives effectively. Nearshore suppliers can enhance your organization’s core strengths with a wide range of specialized technological skills, significantly when diversified.

Now, according to a SkillValue report, including over 550 technical assessments and +46 countries tested, Mexico comes in 2nd place in the ranking for countries with the best developers in the world. Many companies outsource their software development projects as a competitive strategy to grow and scale the business. Internal resources are frequently consumed by supporting current product lines, developing the firm, and putting out fires. When internal teams are stretched too thin, CxOs often look to nearshore partners to scale up to accomplish key initiatives. 

The key to diversifying your nearshore partners is that this practice includes nearby countries, such as Mexico and Canada. Countries that do not share borders are also in your future nearshore partner list. The costs are generally very attractive, with the added benefit of being in the same time zone for easier collaboration. Having your development staff in the same time zone makes communication easier. Whether you require immediate assistance or have a high-priority issue, your team will be available when you are, allowing you to interact and cooperate as needed, just like you do with your internal teams.

Where to find nearshore partners?

The Cali-Baja MegaRegion, rich with opportunities, would be an excellent spot to start looking. Tijuana, which is approximately 35 minutes south of downtown San Diego, is a strategic position that allows businesses to operate inside the flourishing border economy and improve interactions between Mexican and American companies. Cali-Baja has one of the largest population concentrations along the US-Mexico border. Thanks to its unique cross-border integration and IT/Software development, the region has exceptional quality for relocating global and binational business investments and its transnational culture and high-end binational talent pool.

Software that is developed nearshore it’s not just about saving money by outsourcing labor; it’s also about finding the finest people for the job and maintaining those assets who know the regional market and can transfer that expertise on to the team, making it simpler to succeed when developing and implementing plans. That is why the Cali-Baja area may be just what your firm requires to continue to grow while adapting to the new normal we are seeing.

5 Reasons to Nearshore with ITJuana

5 Reasons To Nearshore with ITJ

Here’s a fact that will surprise no one: The tech industry is one of the fastest-growing in the US— worth 1.6 trillion dollars and is on a path to reach $5 trillion by the end of 2021.

However, it has one clear obstacle: a serious shortage of tech talent. In a recent survey, 76%  of US company CIOs have recently said they struggle to find, hire and retain software engineering professionals. The job application success rate between being interviewed and getting hired is between 2% and 3.4%. For a tech company with a timely project at hand, recruiting processes with such a low retention rate can make the difference between staying on top of the competition and losing a precious window to launch a new feature or product.

Nearshoring is a proven way to remain competitive by hiring qualified talent within the same time zone, but residing in locations with lower costs of living. ITJ serves fast-growing and high-value market sectors by creating qualified teams, saving companies precious resources in time and recruiting by creating large, low cost, high performance centers for software engineering.
