Internal teams look to outsourced agencies to add incredible value, something only an experienced studio can offer. Those teams also can’t afford any mistakes, given the critical nature of software for most businesses.
On the flip side, outsourced development teams don’t want to work with inexperienced in-house teams who don’t know how much effort is required, or who aren’t willing to put in the work.
