Vietnam has graduated from being considered an ‘up and coming’ software outsourcing destination, but it’s not nearly as mature as many locations in E. Europe or India. Still, outsourcing software to Vietnam can be an excellent choice for clients who are looking for great value.
Without question, there are some very experienced, very skilled developers in Vietnam but overall the region is still fairly new at IT outsourcing, so the average developers only have a few years of experience. It may be a few more years before Vietnam reaches the point where seasoned tech leads are easy to find, but smart clients should be able to establish skilled, productive teams.
For smaller clients outsourcing simpler projects like apps or websites, Vietnam offers fantastic value and can be extremely successful, although language barriers are still a significant issue and quality issues abound. So, Vietnam is still best for savvy clients who can help ensure their projects stay on track.
At SourceSeek, we’re increasingly interested in Vietnam as it seems well positioned to become to be the next software powerhouse in Asia. So, if you’ve had any experience outsourcing software to Vietnam, we’d love to hear about it!
