Why Outsourcing is Not for Us, with Mika Kukkonen, Etaika

July 4, 2024
Paavo Pauklin

When finding software developers, many end up outsourcing to solve the problem. But it's not for everyone.

In this episode, Paavo Pauklin is joined by Etaika COO and partner Mika Kukkonen to discuss why Etaika has chosen not to outsource its software development but to act as a breeder company.

How much does security, public sector customers or the Finnish language weigh in the decision? What risks did they see in outsourcing? And what were the limiting factors in their own organisation, habits and processes? Paavo and Mika also talk about how much leadership developers need, whether outsourced or within their own team.

In the episode, you will also hear Paavo's experiences of what causes and risks companies have seen in outsourcing and how those risks and fears have materialized, failed to materialize and how they have been managed in general.

What familiar reasons for or against outsourcing software development do you find in the episode? Listen or watch the podcast episode.
