A high-quality virtual training is nowadays a rare product of one person or a bunch of developers. Most often it requires a whole team of professionals. Two solutions seem to be logical in such case – hiring your own team (that could be a long and expensive process) or going to an outsource company for a dedicated team.
Having its roots in various fields, outsourcing couldn’t enter into virtual training and simulation market as well. Why did it attain such a success here, in this field? Firstly, it has already been mentioned above, that virtual trainings and simulations are created by a huge team, and outsourcing allows to hire a fully manned professional team of any size that needed. A cutting retort would be the fact, that hiring professionals for your own studio outcomes in a team of professionals as well. Here should be considered, that working with an outsourcing dedicated team, you get a team with a proven group harmony in work. This is a doubtless argument in favor of outsourcing, for business where the deadline and the quality are equally important and uncompromising.
The flexibility of outsourcing companies is another definite pro on the side of outsourcing dedicated teams, whereas the game-industry offers a variety of options that simplify the search and the choice itself. Using those will guarantee that the final developers will be the most experienced and expert in the game-category you need.
Outsourcing companies are the first that undergo changes influenced by rapid evolvement of the virtual training and simulation market. This cannot be denied and it cannot be changed since the existence of these companies depends on how fast they adopt and implement new rules in order to please the most demanding customer.
No wonder having an own studio must be pleasant, self-comes first. The question is still what is the aim to assuage your appetite for ownership or to create a high-quality successful product.
