Hallo! The enduring partnership between The Right Software and Dutch enterprises remains a testament to shared values and a commitment to excellence. Dutch companies, including industry giants like Shell, Unilever, ING, and Philips, have contributed to our growth, shaping us into a more capable and valuable outsourcing partner. This article serves as both an appreciation and an invitation, urging all Dutch businesses to explore the unparalleled IT and outsourcing solutions offered by The Right Software.
What is Outsourcing?
According to Google, outsourcing is defined as,
… obtain (goods or a service) by contract from an outside supplier.
An IT company providing outsourcing to Netherlands is just like a vendor or a supplier such as government providing you with utilities at a cost. Its perfectly normal practice to hire vendors and suppliers for your work. IT outsourcing means to outsource your web and mobile development needs to third-party companies who are better suited to create and support the software while you focus on marketing and processes to provide better services to end clients.
According to recent statistics, the global IT outsourcing market is projected to grow by 4.7% in 2023. In the Netherlands, specifically, there is a notable shift, with an increased allocation of IT budgets to outsourcing, reaching a significant 13.2% [source]
Why Outsourcing is relevant?
In 2023, the Dutch business landscape faces challenges and opportunities. The Netherlands’ GDP continues to grow steadily, prompting increased demand for skilled staff and innovative solutions. However, the scarcity of local IT resources persists, making outsourcing a strategic imperative. As of 2023, the Netherlands witnesses a continued rise in outsourcing due to the evolving economic landscape and demographic trends.
Wages in Netherlands increased 6.45 percent in October of 2023 over the same month in the previous year. Wage Growth in Netherlands averaged 2.34 percent from 1991 until 2023, reaching an all time high of 6.45 percent in October of 2023 and a record low of 0.44 percent in May of 2005.
Similarly, steady wage growth in Netherlands shows that hiring local web developers and app developers will have more cost down the line in coming months and years and hiring will be inefficient.
These factors show that outsourcing is a viable option to Dutch companies and a venue they should explore.
