IT Staff Augmentation is a popular outsourcing strategy to get access to ready-to-deploy high-skilled technical talent on a temporary or permanent basis. It allows businesses to augment the talent capacity of an organization as per the dynamic business requirements by hiring external team members. Skilled personnel here work as an extended part of an organization’s internal tech team to improve the pace, quality, and efficiency of projects.

There are basically two different types of IT staff augmentation model

  • Non-remote: People work from your own physical office.
  • Remote: Hired individuals work from distant locations. Far away from the actual office. They may be present in different countries or continents as well. The scope here is far wide with global footprints. The best part of this IT staff augmentation model is that you can get the services of the best talents in the world to fulfill your business requirements.

Benefits of IT Staff Augmentation Services

  1. Quickly Increase Team’s Capacity: Many times while working on a project enterprises need sudden enhancement in their technical team’s capacity. Hiring is an option but not the viable one in such a case. As it takes months of time to hire, onboard, train, and deploy resources on ongoing time-critical projects. Staff augmentation companies provide you with immediate access to quality tech talent without any much waiting.
  1. No Long Term Commitment: Staff augmentation services are designed keeping the enterprise’s business challenges in mind. It offers you the complete liberty and flexibility to utilize the services of external staff on a timely basis or project to project basis with no full-term employment commitment or liabilities in place.

They can be deployed to work on projects much faster as compared to in-house resources and require little or no superior guidance to prove their worth. They are capable of working with complete ownership under tight deadlines with no supervision required. The talent of staff augmentation service providers is recognized for their delivery, accuracy, and exceptional quality in the industry.

Staff Augmentation V/S Project Outsourcing

Many people often get confused about staff augmentation and project outsourcing and unknowingly replace one term with another. But if you go into greater detail then you will find that both these things are completely different from each other.

In project outsourcing, an enterprise hires an external agency to work on a project from end to end with ‘complete ownership’. They are liable for managing, executing, and completing the project (with almost no strong control of the enterprise). If things go unwell at the start due to miscommunication, mismanagement, or incompetence at the agency’s end or things progress in a wrong direction, then project success derails. By the time you can act, it is already too late.

But in the case of staff augmentation, you retain complete control over resources and entire projects. You can orchestrate the project execution at your own pace, flexibility, and authority. As an enterprise, you are in complete control of everything to make necessary changes as the project progresses without waiting for the final end product/service to come. From staff selection, team training, task allocation, quality control, to feedback and change management, you have complete control to run the project and ensure desired success.
