Is a lack of internal resource holding your digital projects back? With a predicted global shortage of over 545K developers globally by 2026, according to ManpowerGroup, many companies are struggling to find the specialists they need to complete projects, get the most from their DXP platforms and deliver against their digital transformation roadmaps.
To fill those gaps, Cision PRWeb reports that 80% of the world’s largest companies depend on offshore resource to bolster their own internal teams. This ability to scale teams quickly to provide increased continuity and quality of outputs, is what’s helping them achieve rapid growth.
The benefits of utilizing global talent
While it’s important for businesses to think about how they can cultivate homegrown talent for the long-term, there are many advantages to harnessing global resource in the short-term. Not only does this open you up to a much wider pool of specialist talent – with niche skillsets and solutions experts that can plug the gaps in your current team – but it’s the continuity of this expertise and the consistency in delivery that can really have an impact.
While outsourcing might have raised several questions for businesses pre-pandemic, the collaboration tools and hybrid working models that many companies have already implemented has removed a lot of barriers. And while security, legal and financial fears might still be prevalent, choosing the right global partner can quickly alleviate these.
The time to invest in technology is now
While we know there is a considerable shortage in talent, we also know that businesses are heavily investing in technology. Last year it was reported by the 2021 Harvey Nash Group Digital Leadership Report that sixty-one percent of U.S. businesses planned to increase their technology investments this year, while 60% expected to increase their tech-related headcount. On top of this, more than two-thirds, or 69%, of digital leaders are unable to keep pace with change because of they can’t find the talent they need.
If you want to avoid falling behind your competitors, you need to think about implementing the right technology and teams, now. At Tanasuk, we’ve helped businesses scale teams that have applied premium Microsoft-based enterprise-level DXPs built on headless technologies and architectures to give them a competitive edge. If you’re one of those digital leaders that is worried about your business trailing behind, then it might be worth thinking about investing in your team and technology before it’s too late.
Getting the most from your technology
While investing in Digital Experience Platforms and having the right tools in place to create improved digital experiences is a wise investment, without the right people in place to implement, maintain and continually improve these solutions, you could end up with a costly problem that will hold your business back. Developers, UX Practitioners, Solution Architects – these specialist roles are hard to recruit for and with so much demand, the competition is fierce, and retention is a challenge.

Tanasuk has quickly deployed individuals and teams that have been able to accelerate digital transformation and the implementation of improved digital experiences the world over. And by building a team that combines in-house resource with outsourced talent, not only do you benefit from a breadth and depth of knowledge and expertise – but you can also rely on a consistency of personnel.
