Outsourcing Computer Programmers?

  • 1.  Outsourcing Computer Programmers?

    Good afternoon everyone!

    I was wondering if anyone had any experience in outsourcing computer programmer positions and what kind of experience they have had?

    Your input would greatly be appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    We have been outsourcing our core system (Episys, EASE) programming (repgen aka PowerOn, mostly) for five+ years. We have found it to be cost effective and successful.

    Not exactly what you may be looking for but 1) I also outsourced hosting our Symitar core (to MDT) at my last CU in Jan 2008 and never looked back.  2) My former VP-eCommerce now has his own consulting business (GraysLake Tech) and I have outsourced implementation of many of my digital/tech related projects here to him (mobile banking, website, education modules, digital certs, etc.) to him.

    I edited my response as I omitted some key words, it's core system programming, in addition to the core itself, we outsourced. (Not at the same time. We outsourced programming before we moved our in-house Episys to EASE.)
