It could be called team extension, it staff augmentation, dedicated team, but in the end is an outsourcing strategy. This strategy is about evaluating skills of your current in-house team and adding to it the lacking skillset by hiring external remote team/experts.
Staff augmentation is almost like having an in-house team with a difference that in most of the cases they are an offshore/nearshore team. In most of the cases, you will manage the work that the extension team is doing, but you don’t have to care about the hiring costs, paperwork, social benefits, training or even equipment.
In compare to project outsourcing, staff augmentation gives you more project management control, cost control and less risk on a long term.
If you cannot find great developers, want to scale your team fast and for a temporary period, cannot afford in-house developers locally or simply don’t have time for building an in-house team, then IT team augmentation is for you.
