Offshoring SAP development work has become a common practice for many companies looking to reduce overall project costs. However, cost reduction is only one reason to consider hiring offshore developers, according to Deloitte Consulting Senior Manager Karl Rupilius.

If managed properly, incorporating an offshore development team can also help improve the quality of your project in the following ways, says Rupilius:

• It forces you to follow a rigorous development process

• It requires detailed documentation along the entire development cycle

• It forces you to define your priorities clearly

“It’s not only about reducing project costs. That’s what everyone thinks when they think about offshore development. However, in my experience you can also improve the overall quality of your projects,” says Rupilius.
