You can read about some of the most-mentioned advantages in our other article: IT Outsourcing - advantages and disadvantages of having the technology partner.

In the second case, the third-party company is fully responsible for your company's technology and its needs. Good technology partner should be prepared for various stages of work on your product. From its creation, to its maintenance and development. The basic services of a technology partner include:

When should you decide to work with a technology partner?

  • When the resources, needed to support technology in your company, are fluctuating

Small companies or those that don't use constantly developed technology solutions , usually rely on irregular support from IT specialists. Hiring them internally would result in constant rotation or unnecessary costs. If you have an IT technology partner , the necessary specialists perform task-based work, within the agreed scope of needs and time.

  • When you need support for a small amount of time

There are also organizations that need ongoing IT support , but only to a small extent. This is what usually characterizes small companies and startups. Trying to hire a person for several hours a week can be difficult. On the other hand, hiring a freelancer may result in low availability in emergency situations, such as working for another client at the time. In the case of a technology partnership of the company, unforeseen situations can be seen by another person from the team, in the case of the indisposition of your main tutor.

  • You need specialists in various fields

Sometimes your technology solutions are so complex that you need the support of not one, but several specialists from various fields. You should know that in this case, too, there is no need to hire all of them at once. Your case can be handled by many proven professionals, whether it is just a consultation or a complex problem solving process. As a part of the technology partnership , they can cooperate with each other as one good team or exchange periodically while working on your project.

  • You have no experience in recruiting

By entrusting activities to a technological partner , you avoid the recruitment, but also onboarding process and the time needed for the team building.

  • You will need support in decisions focused on your business goal
