The Benefits of Staff Augmentation

This approach is perfect when you’re looking for a specific skillset in the context of a larger project. For example, you need a dedicated team who can flexibly handle new tasks on your project in the instant that they come up. With offices around the globe and fast access to the world’s largest talent pools, Newfire can generate an effective team augmentation in weeks. Because the augmented team works for you full-time, you’re able to cultivate a personal connection and achieve strong working relationships, making the work more applicable and efficient within your individual business.

Preparing for an IT Staff Augmentation

There are three key elements to keep in mind: scope, security, scalability. First, define the scope of your project and evaluate whether you’ll need one dedicated developer or an entire dedicated software development team. Then, consider the sensitivity of the data you’ll need to disclose. Note that at Newfire, we maintain data security as a priority and our approach is trusted by industry leaders all around the globe. Finally, you’ll need to clarify whether you can scale your business quicker with staff augmentation services, or if you’ll need to hire a team of full-time employees.

FAQ

  • What is IT staff augmentation?

    IT staff augmentation expands the technological capacity of an organization. This model implies hiring distributed teams and/or individual experts to fill skill gaps in ongoing projects.

  • What are the types of staff augmentation?

    There are two common types of staff augmentations services: temporary and long-term.

    The temporary model works for those who need to quickly find a set of required skills and accomplish objectives urgently. Recruiting for such models often takes more time (a few months).

    The long-term model enables organizations to access talent as long as they are needed. A distributed team becomes a part of the organization and becomes more efficient in tackling business problems.

  • Why should you hire dedicated developers?

    It allows your organization to:
    – Access a needed skill set on demand
    – Scale your business quicker
    – Retain control over business processes
    – Get an outsider’s perspective when needed

  • How do you choose the right dedicated software development team?

    Although there is no one-size-fits-all solution, these criteria can help:

    • Assess the reviews and success stories of the vendors you’ve already selected
    • Consider their size, recruitment capabilities, and values
    • Evaluate their industry-specific experience: do they have what it takes to build a project in your niche?
    • Opt for the company that fits both the technical and cultural needs of your organization
  • What is the difference between staff augmentation and managed services?

    While these models are quite similar, managed services often work on more of a long-term basis, while outsourcing is better for a project-based situation. A vendor of managed services can provide you with the required number of experts and infrastructure to secure your daily operational needs.
