How OEMs respond to high-tech talent shortage?

In the context of emerging technologies, competition among high-tech companies is increasingly fierce, both to be first to market with innovative solutions and to find the talent to design and develop those solutions.

According to a recent report from Gartner “Technology executives think that talent shortage is the biggest barrier to the adoption of 64% of new technologies.

Causes behind the tech workers crisis

The Covid-19 pandemic sparked an unprecedented wave of technology adoption. The move toward remote working across all industries, and the acceleration of recruitment by companies not only in their region but around the world have intensified the shortage of tech talent, particularly for sourcing the skills that power cloud and edge, automation and continuous delivery.

It becomes more and more challenging for companies like OEMs to have in-house staff with all the necessary technical skills. More complex services are increasingly being outsourced as OEMs gain confidence in the capabilities of their Engineering Services Outsourcing (ESO) providers. Advances in sensor technology, distributed computing, wireless communications, and big-data capabilities have enabled the Internet of Things (IoT) to rapidly transform the technology topography. OEMs across a variety of industries have quickly begun to leverage these technical capabilities and outsource complex tasks such as driver assistance, connected homes, remote and continuous health monitoring, engineering information management and more.

The “new investment cycle”

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated companies' efforts to digitize their operations to meet the "new normal" of hybrid and flexible work arrangements.

This situation has led organizations to initially create a significant need for IT infrastructure that can support a fully virtual workforce, and then to increase their investments in emerging technologies in 2021 to drive innovation.

Companies know that they need to make customer experience a priority in 2022, starting with investing in the right technology stack and empowering their teams to create the products of the future.

Developments in emerging technology and improving critical IT infrastructure are top priorities

To enable the smooth flow of information between physical and virtual sites, OEMs are prioritizing and investing in building a solid and secure hybrid cloud base, supported by multi-cloud technologies. It is difficult for a company to have in-house staff with all the necessary technical skills. They must therefore find strong partners in order to stay competitive.

Tech talent crisis is definitely leading to increased outsourcing needs

Most of the changes caused by the pandemic will not fade with the decline in infection rates, which means that companies will need to continue to invest in technology and modernized work practices to survive.

What is engineering outsourcing for high-tech product development?

As products and technology become more complex, the expertise needed to update and develop new versions increases. It’s difficult, if not impossible, for a company to have in-house staff with all the technical skills needed.

A Harvard Business Review article says, “The days are long gone when a single vertically-integrated manufacturer like Ford or General Motors could design and manufacture all or most of the subassemblies and components it needs to make a finished product. Technology is just too complicated, and it is impossible to possess all the skills that are necessary in just one place.”

More and more companies are choosing to keep their in-house staff focused on their primary business, so they engage an outsourced engineering team to provide technical expertise. According to a report from Grand View Research, “The global engineering services outsourcing market… is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.9% from 2021 to 2028. The increasing collaboration between Engineering Service Providers (ESPs) and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) is expected to emerge as one of the primary factors contributing to the growth in the adoption of engineering services outsourcing (ESO).”

The need for specialized skills often drives OEMs to partner with our team at Orthogone. For example, a medical device manufacturer with industry-leading image detection needed FPGA expertise to take their products to the next level. They partnered with our team to develop the latest version of their product.

Read the case study about our FPGA design for a highly programmable image processing engine.

In addition to needing specialized skills, companies also need to get their products to market quickly. They can’t wait for a time-consuming talent recruitment process and ramp-up delay for new hires.  Companies that are developing industry-leading innovations work with us to speed development time. For example, we partnered with an optical detection and ranging technology company to design the electronics for an automotive LiDAR solution. Through the partnership, we met an extremely tight schedule to meet a product introduction deadline.

Crucial differences between outsourced engineering services and other outsourced services

Many companies have taken advantage of the cost savings associated with using an offshore team for services such as IT. However, the IT outsourcing business model doesn’t exactly translate to engineering outsourcing. Working with an engineering firm or engineering team can be done on a project basis. This arrangement allows companies to scale up their teams as needed to meet peak requirements.

Also, the focus on cost savings as the primary factor in deciding to outsource and selecting a partner has shifted. Finding people that have the necessary technical skills along with essential communication and project management skills can make all the difference in the success of a project. Engineering services are extremely specialized. Building a team that has knowledge and experience takes years and requires investing in continuous education. Innovative product development demands creative thinking in an environment that supports collaboration and nurtures continuous learning. Every team member at Orthogone benefits from the company’s investment in research and development.

Meeting your product development needs with 3 flexible engineering outsourcing options

There is no one-size-fits-all model for engineering outsourcing. Every company, team, and project will have its own unique needs. However, there are 3 categories that engineering outsourcing services generally fall into:

1 - Augmenting your in-house staff

With this option, the outsourced team members work side-by-side with your in-house team, either in person at your offices or remotely with frequent meetings. The augmenting model works well for OEMs that have a large engineering team in-house and require specific expertise for a project. By augmenting your in-house team with an engineering services partner, your team members will benefit from knowledge transfer and learn more about the new technology from experienced developers.

Find answers to frequently asked questions in our Custom Engineering Services FAQs

2 – Assigning a portion of product development to the outsourcing team.

With this option, the outsourcing partner typically provides more input into the project management and design of the product, while taking on responsibility to complete a significant portion of development. This model is used by both OEMs and startups. For OEMS, this option can speed development significantly, while leaving their in-house staff available to focus on other priority tasks. For startups that have some staff, but need help with certain portions of product development, this option can be used at any point in the product development life cycle, for example, to show proof of concept or develop a working prototype.

Learn more about increasing the capacity of your technical team.

3 – Opting for turnkey product development.

For some projects, having an outsourcing partner take on the entire project from idea to manufacturing makes the most sense. This can happen for a variety of reasons, such as when a startup has a great idea with a time-sensitive market opportunity, but doesn’t have the bandwidth to take on the project. For OEMs, sometimes a project is outside the boundaries of the company’s normal operations, so it makes more sense to outsource it completely. Another reason for turnkey product development is when the idea presents seemingly impossible engineering challenges that need experienced developers to manage.

Development is still done as a collaborative process, with open communication and input from your company’s experts, but the majority of the development work is done by the outsourcing partner.

Discover answers to frequently asked questions about Turnkey Product Development.


How engineering outsourcing pricing works

An experienced outsourcing partner can provide a pricing model that meets your needs. Typical options include time and materials, and fixed price contracts. The suitability of these options will depend on the size and scope of the project.

Sometimes, both models will be used. For example, if you want to use fixed price terms, but don’t have an RFP or specifications, an experienced developer can use the time and materials model to help you to define the requirements and specifications for your project. Then you can use those requirements as the basis for a fixed price contract.


What is the best engineering outsourcing option for you?

Whether you need to access people with specific skills, speed development, or scale up your internal team for a special project, engineering outsourcing can be the ideal solution. Our successful work with clients develops into long-term partnerships where we collaborate on multiple projects.

Engineering Outsourcing: 6 Key Considerations

Outsourcing is no longer primarily about offshoring as a cost-cutting measure. For companies developing new high-tech solutions, nearshoring engineering services has many advantages that provide greater strategic business value than short-term cost cutting. However, outsourcing isn’t the best fit for all companies and all projects.

The following considerations will help determine when partnering with an outside engineering services provider is most likely to be a good fit:

1 – Technical skills and experience

Finding people with the skills required to develop innovative high-tech products is not easy. Recruiting, onboarding, and keeping these engineers challenged and motivated on an in-house team can be overwhelming for companies not accustomed to supporting a high-tech development team.

A good technology partner will have highly qualified engineers on staff who keep their skills up to date by working on a variety of projects for different industries that require multiple technologies. An outsourced team that has already worked together will be ready to get started right away and can produce results quickly.

At Orthogone, our experienced designers and developers share knowledge with each other, and are passionate about technology and taking on new challenges.

2 - Development time

At some point, developers have to take the time to learn the skills required to implement the latest technology. An in-house team may be capable of learning the required skills, but the time it takes could be too costly for your project. If you have a compressed product development timeline, or you need to get your product to market as soon as possible, then you need developers who already have the required skills, and have the experience needed to apply those skills successfully to new projects.

Discover how our knowledge & experience help push the limits of performance, cost-effectiveness, scalability and speed.

3 – Risks

Adding skilled engineers to an in-house team requires monetary and time investments in recruiting and infrastructure that are not only risky; they can also divert focus from a company’s core business.  With an outsourced team, the costs are fixed and predictable, and key company resources can stay focused on their strengths.

Ensuring that the work done is high quality is another risk that’s minimized by outsourcing to a reputable, skilled team. Quickly ramping up an in-house team for a rush project doesn’t create ideal conditions for high quality work.

4 – Communication

When you aren’t working face-to-face with people in the same office, communication can break down. However, as we’ve seen with remote work in 2020, many workers excel at maintaining and even improving productivity when working remotely. A technology partner that has years of experience working remotely with multiple international clients will be well-equipped to set realistic expectations and maintain transparency throughout each project.

At Orthogone, we won’t start a project if we don’t have the expertise and resources needed to deliver high quality results. Our clients know that they can count on quick and significant returns when they use our expert services, and we have ongoing partnerships with many of them. Mistakes do happen; however, we fix them, learn from them, and above all, never disappoint our clients.

We’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions to make the decision easier for you.

5 – Flexibility

Change is part of the process. When creating innovative solutions, team members can’t be afraid to try new things or to suggest new ways of solving problems. Before outsourcing a new project, ensure that your technology partner has the resources and bandwidth to accommodate changes and still meet deadlines. Having experienced, flexible project managers is essential in product development. A partner with good project managers can adjust plans and shift priorities when you need to make changes while making sure that delivery milestones are met.

In addition to our ability to quickly ramp up with the required staff and expertise, one of the reasons clients choose to work with Orthogone again and again is our flexibility in adapting to changes while providing the high performance needed to deliver results.

We’re successful because we deliver.

6 – Culture

When forming a partnership, you have to trust the people you’re working with. Do their values align with yours? Can they be trusted with your confidential information and access to your intellectual property? Is their work environment secure? When building an in-house team, you have tight control over how your company operates, and what you expect of your employees, but when outsourcing it’s essential to perform due diligence on the companies you’re considering as partners. How long have they been in business? Who is on their team? Who else have they worked with? What’s their track record for completed projects?

6 powerful benefits of partnering with a leading software development company

As software solutions have become increasingly complex, innovation teams need specific technical expertise. Partnering with a leading software development company is a popular strategy that offers many benefits for high-tech companies.

The article Improving the management of complex business partnerships  states, “Companies regularly seek partners with complementary capabilities to gain access to new markets and channels, share intellectual property or infrastructure, or reduce risk. The more complex the business environment becomes—for instance, as new technologies emerge or as innovation cycles get faster—the more such relationships make sense.”

In this article, we’ll explore how a top software development partnership offers these 6 benefits:

  1. Accelerate time to market for product development while limiting development costs
  2. Access specialized expertise and technologies while having the opportunity to eventually transfer them internally
  3. Increase the development capacity of software teams without having to go through hiring cycles
  4. Use different perspectives and ideas to find solutions to the toughest challenges 
  5. Reinforce project controls and reduce risk
  6. Allow your team to stay focused on your core business


1. Accelerate time to market for product development while limiting development costs

Speed to market and return on investment are the key ways that partnerships make financial sense.  Missing the window of opportunity to launch a new solution on the market or not being able to produce a working demo in a specified timeframe can mean failure for a once-promising idea. The time and cost investment needed to hire and train people to be proficient in a new technology often does not make financial sense when compared with using a strategic partnership.

The article, Joint Ventures and Partnerships in a Downturn says, “Companies will need every tool they’ve got to survive the downturn and rev up their businesses as the economy rights itself…At many firms, joint ventures and partnerships will play an outsize role in those efforts, both as a vehicle for sharing costs and reducing capital needs during the crisis and as a way to position themselves for growth once it ends.”


2. Access specialized expertise and technologies while having the opportunity to eventually transfer them internally

Companies working in transformation industries often don’t have all the expertise they need to stay competitive.  This is normal, and common. In some cases, it wouldn’t be possible to develop all the required expertise internally from scratch.

Acquiring new expertise and staying current with the latest technologies takes time, and shouldn’t be rushed.  By working with partners that already have the required expertise, companies can quickly access expertise/technology for use in the design of new products and other purposes. At the same time, the company can assimilate the expertise/technology internally at a reasonable pace.

In our article Find the Technical Expertise Needed to Drive Innovation in Software Product Development we cover a range of industries fueling demand for high-tech solutions, and the 8 essential areas of technical expertise. The article states that, “With so much cross-fertilization among technologies used in different industries, many high-tech companies are joining forces with leading partners.”

Technical teams at software development companies work on a range of projects for multiple companies in different industries, inspiring creative thinking.  As well, software development companies excel at recognizing and implementing best practices across projects to improve communication, teamwork, and achieve the best results. 

In a partnership, the teams work together, so even if a technology is new for your internal team, they’ll be exposed to it with guidance from more experienced personnel. Teaching and knowledge transfer can also be purposefully built in to the schedule.


3. Increase the development capacity of software teams without having to go through hiring cycles

Keeping an in in-house technical team up-to-date with the latest technology required to drive innovation can be an overwhelming undertaking for human resources as well as management. Recruiting and retaining technical talent is a serious challenge for companies of all sizes.

Turnover is also a serious risk, particularly for people with technical expertise.  By relying on partnerships to acquire additional technical expertise, your internal teams can take on big projects and meet tight deadlines without draining company resources.


4. Use different perspectives and ideas to find solutions to the toughest challenges

Even the best, most innovative in-house teams can develop tunnel vision. Bringing in a team of outside experts helps to stimulate creativity and open up new possibilities for finding solutions. 

Not only does an outside team bring new ideas to the table, they offer different perspectives, experiences, and even ways of thinking or “cognitive” diversity. According to the article Diversity and Inclusion Build High-Performance Teams from, “In addition to a mixture of age, gender, and cultural backgrounds, CIOs need to also look for ‘cognitive’ diversity, which is mixing people together with different thinking styles, habits and perspectives... Having diversity of thought can be what saves a team from groupthink and allows it to achieve better outcomes.” 

Working with an outside team is an excellent opportunity to combine the strengths of each party. A partnership can refine and improve development processes, introduce and strengthen best practices, and increase coding and quality standards.


5. Reinforce project controls and reduce risk

When working with a partner, the project must be well-defined, with agreed-upon roles, responsibilities, deadlines, and deliverables. Input from the partner can help identify areas of the project plan that need strengthening, and point out opportunities for improvement early in the process. 

Partnership reduces the dangerous risk of rigidity, and allows design and development teams to stay flexible, which is crucial for successful results. When developing innovative solutions, adding people in-house can make it more difficult to pivot when needed. The article Start Stopping Faster recommends, “Avoid premature scaling — hiring too many people, building too much capacity, doing too much marketing — before key assumptions have been validated.”

By partnering with an outside team of developers, you can explore innovative ideas and make needed changes faster without investing in in-house technical talent up front.


6. Keep your team focused on your core business

A critical decision that must be made by technology leaders is defining what technology is and is not part of their core business. For example, an automotive company may be comfortable outsourcing entertainment system technology to allow in-house teams to develop other areas of innovation that give the company its competitive edge. 

For new and evolving technologies, partnerships may make sense for core areas of innovation when the technology is so new that finding experts is difficult, and when a product or solution is still in the experimental stage.  Forming a long-term partnership with a respected, reputable software development company can be an ideal solution for companies that frequently need specialized expertise for innovation.
