It is an effective option for the company to get high revenue and a stable position in the market.

IT outsourcing will also bring more efficiency, save cost, and limit risks for the enterprise. Nowadays, international businesses tend to cooperate with IT outsourcing in Vietnam. Cooperating with foreign companies could help developers in Vietnam improve their skills, affirm their capacity, and raise their culture as well.

Accessing to modern science

This is the best way to develop their abilities and skills to complete the tasks and apply to the actual world. Everyday, people always have to update and research more and more because technology has just been getting started to bring about its capabilities.

Challenges

Quality of Human Resources

Nowadays, businesses spend much time in training and directing new employees. Just like any other business, if new developers want to become familiar and proficient in certain processes and joint projects of the team, they need to take a long time to be immersed to it. Yield reduction will affect the reputation of the business to compete with other countries. Resources are always a matter of primary concern when starting the implementation of a certain project, shortening the training time will bring a better result for the business. It is ideal though that newbies should be onboard to shadow on the tasks and roles in order to be immersed. They are also advised to self-study to maintain gain and contribute knowledge to their team. It is very important to keep the potential ones and make them grow with the company.
