Team Augmentation Services FAQs
What Is Staff Augmentation Services?
Staff augmentation services refer to the process of providing personnel to a company. There are many types of staff augmentation services (also known as team augmentation).
But they are most commonly needed for IT or software development purposes. Companies with internal development teams can partner with a team augmentation service provider.
But why do companies require staff augmentation services in the first place? One reason is that their in-house team may need reinforcements in terms of numbers or skill sets.
Another reason is that they may need extra talent to work on an existing project. But hiring coders full-time is expensive. Therefore, they hire an external team because it’s more cost-effective for short-term engagements.
What Is the Team / Staff Augmentation Supplier Responsible For?
The staff augmentation company handles the recruitment and HR duties for the developers. When we say recruitment, we mean the whole deal.
This covers the screening, interviewing, testing, and onboarding of developers. When the external team starts working, the staffing provider performs the HR functions.
If needed, the supplier may also field a project manager (PM) to oversee project progress. Note that this is optional.
If the client already has project management in place, they can do away with this option. But know that dedicated teams are often formed with an accompanying PM.
Do I Need to Provide the Development Team Augmentation Staff With Equipment?
No, you don’t need to do that. Staff augmentation services providers usually provide equipment for the external team.
This is why many consider this service a cost-effective solution for scaling up. You can expand your development team without worrying about spending on additional equipment. Not to mention the added operational costs of hiring new personnel.
Moreover, the staff augmentation model is all about speeding up the integration process. It takes time to set up equipment and find office space.
You’d need to prepare a new workstation and hook it up to your systems. That means more work for your IT guys and HR.
Staff augmentation skips all that by having an infrastructure in place, all ready to go. So you just give your approval, and they’ll be in charge of equipping your external team.
What’s the Difference Between IT Staff Augmentation Services and Managed Services?
With IT staff augmentation services, you reinforce your existing team with software developers. The new extended team member can help your team complete specific one-time projects.
Also, with IT staff augmentation services, you get 100% software development project control. That means you manage the project, not the staff augmentation company.
As for managed IT services, it’s akin to your usual business partnership. It’s ideal for long-term commitments as opposed to one-time engagements.
Managed services also differ from IT staff augmentation services in terms of responsibility. With managed services, the staff augmentation company has control of the process. By doing so, it is fully responsible for delivering the desired results.
That’s in stark contrast to IT staff augmentation services. You manage your extended team. That means that you bear full responsibility for the outcome.
