Finding developers for business application modernization may seem complicated—you need qualified programmers who already worked on similar cases.
You may start with choosing between three hiring options:
- Hiring a freelance developer
- Assembling an in-house team
- Outsourcing app modernization
Hiring a freelancer is cheap but good only for small one-time projects—making a landing page, fixing a bug, adding a shopping cart to your website or mobile app.
Applications modernization in a large-size company doesn’t actually fit the description. You’ll have to hire several freelance developers (if you don’t want the process to take years), a
UI/UX designer to update the software interface, and manage everyone not to mess up the whole process.
Working with an in-house team is a more reliable but much more expensive option. You’ll have to look for qualified developers, interview them, rent an office, pay for software and hardware, and bare lots of other expenses.
If you have enough time, financial resources, and years of work ahead, hiring an in-house team is justifiable.
But if you’re constrained by budget or time limits, try looking for offshore development companies. They’ll provide you with a full team of developers, UI designers, QA engineers, assign a PM—and their services will cost much lower compared to an in-house team.
