What is the value of staff augmentation?
This business technique assists companies in keeping up with changing market conditions and filling skill shortfalls. Unlike traditional recruiting, augmented teams enable businesses to remain flexible while reducing operating expenses. Furthermore, company owners have more significant influence over new workers that join their on-site personnel.
Augmentation vs. outsourcing. What is the difference?
With augmented teams, you hire additional IT resources while maintaining direct control over your team. As a result, you are not sharing the risks of a possible poor consequence. The outsourcing model entails assigning outsourced developers to a specific outcome while sharing the risks with your outsourcing vendor. Also, the amount of control is reduced with outsourcing.
