Despite the war, the Ukrainian economy and one of the key spheres – IT – are trying to function in these difficult times. They do it in order to protect the state, and pay taxes and salaries. Therefore, foreign customers can not worry.
This is because 97% of Ukrainian development companies provide the same quality of service as before the war. There are also presented interesting statistics.According to it about 60% of all Ukrainian dedicated developers prefer to work in outsourcing. That shows the need for such a model as dedicated team. This model is on the same level as the Time&Material and FixedPrice models.
The main purpose of this model is to quickly hire a team. The team should make up for the lack of necessary knowledge and will work as your own. This interaction format allows you 2 things.
To either completely replace the developer’s staff, or establish joint work with an in-house team, provided that there is a clear division of responsibilities. Dedicated Teams are suitable if:
- a project is long-term;
- requirements and scope of work are not defined;
- a project is flexible software development;
- a customer wants to know the costs in advance But the requirements and scope of the project change frequently;
- a client prefers to plan and manage all work in the project;
- a customer wants to manage the hired team as their own.
