Outsourcing product development (OPD) is proving to be a sensible strategy for staying ahead of the competition and ensuring timely product releases. Its adoption has enabled numerous large enterprises and small sized companies to attain better quality products at minimal prices, higher business flexibility, and has rectified the need of having talent in multiple platforms. For a long time, firms across geographies have seen this trend developing commendably in the software industry, and now the trend is crossing over to a broader realm of other verticals as well.
