Offshore Development FAQ

What is offshore development? Commentary on trends in offshore development!

Offshore development is a development method that outsources and orders information system, software, and Web system development work to overseas development companies and overseas subsidiaries. Offshore means “overseas” by turning off from Shore.
In Japan, the shortage of resources and costs have become major problems due to the situation where the supply of IT resources cannot keep up sufficiently. For this reason, offshore development is beginning to progress as a new method, mainly in Asia, due to reasons such as cost and resource benefits.
Originally, offshore development is outsourced to a large company such as a Japanese company or a foreign-affiliated company based in Japan. However, in recent years, offshore development has also been seen, which is outsourced by SMEs.
Candidates for offshore outsourcing are countries with abundant labor force and easy to secure IT human resources such as system engineers (SE). It will be targeted at countries that are focusing on developing IT human resources and have many excellent system engineers. For example, in Vietnam, we have been working to develop IT human resources as a country since around 2000. Offshore development from Japan was once centered on China. However, in recent years, the number of offshore tourists to India, Vietnam, the Philippines, etc. has increased due to the overheating of the Chinese economy and rising wages.
