Both new and established companies face many challenges when it comes to getting their technology right. A company's team is its lifeblood, and selecting the right people to help execute the vision and accomplish business goals is crucial.
Many companies today are hiring outside experts to get a different perspective, extra horsepower, and unbiased specialized expertise across multiple functions. In fact, more than twice as many U.S. tech companies today are turning to outside consultants to help support their tech needs than in 2013, according to BDO's 2015 Technology Outlook Survey.
Consultancy firms can help with everything from one-off projects for companies that don't have enough time to pull together a team, to long-term projects that require a team with deep experience in an emerging or cutting-edge technology. Hiring a consultancy group can benefit early-stage companies by enabling them to focus on their business and products first, instead of on recruiting software developers. Established companies can benefit from a highly skilled and business-oriented external team that is ready for fast-paced product development and able to quickly adopt the company's methodology, infrastructure and process.
