As we are in the last month of the year, it is time to analyze what the future is going to have in store for us with respect to the business. And, this is the reason we are going to talk about the future of offshore development in the coming year.
So, without much ado, let us straight away get to the trends that are going to prevail in the coming year, in the offshore development industry –
Data security will continue to top the chart
When a business thinks to hire dedicated offshore developers, one of the biggest concerns it has it about the security of its business data. And, this trend is going to dominate not just in 2018, but forever. No matter how robust systems technology can bring, there will always be that scope of error which will continue to give businesses sleepless nights while outsourcing their services. Although, things are no longer the way as they used to be in the past yet a cloud of doubt will always remain.
Cloud will grow bigger and better
2017 saw an immense rise in popularity of cloud-based applications. In fact, experts have predicted the cloud computing industry related to outsourcing is going to touch the $200 million mark in the coming year. Considering the benefits that cloud computing brings along, this figure is still a mere reflection of how big the cloud is going to be in the future.
As far as the trend for the coming year is concerned, offshore development is going to rely heavily on the cloud computing industry that’s for sure.
Automation is going to take over
Everyone is talking about AI and automation technology. The upcoming year is certainly going to be a year of Automation technology. From Robotics to IVR taking over the call centers, we are going to see computer programs replacing human interventions to a large extent. In other words, automation is going to rule the roost in 2018.
And, this rise is going to make business more profitable by reducing liabilities to a great extent.
More efficient processes
All the technological intervention mentioned is going to make sure that the business processes are going to become more efficient, and better than ever. By choosing to hire dedicated offshore developers like Your Team in India businesses can aurally make their processes more streamlined and profitable.
Digital communication has already taken over the world, and the future is going to see a rise in this field even further. And, it’s not just the communication between the client and offshore development companies that we are talking about here. We are talking about the communication that the clients have with their customers and audience in general. Businesses are going to look beyond outsourcing just their development needs. Services like digital marketing, social media marketing and more are going to take the center stage.
We are going to see a revolution in communication – a digital revolution to say! In fact, Hubspot published a study last year that said close to 70% of business would shift toward outsourcing their digital marketing services. And, the trends are certainly going to grow.
Those were our predictions for the trends that are going to dominate the offshore development community in the coming year.
