Outsourced product development is an increasing trend due to the transitory nature of markets, customer expectations and technologies. Today’s product companies are more customer-facing and focused on improving customer satisfaction with better support and a wider range of innovative services.
Outsourced product development under any circumstances is full of pitfalls. Moving it to an offshore development center can exacerbate management and other common problems.
More and more enterprises, however, are in the process of, or considering moving product development offshore. This is partly because it makes economic sense and partly because trust is growing in offshore development centers in countries such as India.
