Nearshoring

Nearshoring is when organizations move their development of IT projects to a nearby country that is less expensive. This is one of the reasons why nearshoring has become more and more popular among the international companies in Europe.

When the desicion is made to outsource, you also need to be sure about why you are outsourcing and what you want to achieve with it. Often it is about cutting costs, but it can also be that the competence that you are looking for is not available in your country.
