Over the years, we've asked them to bridge this gap (raise technical competency level) by getting experienced/talented engineers in the pool... but it hasn't happened yet...
So we're addressing it as follows. What are you doing?
- Bridge the gap from our end - i.e. build and maintain a pool of talented engineers (FTE, Consultants) onshore to make key technical decisions. For this we've hired top talent in Java/Ruby/SQL and trained our engineers to be hands-on.
- Encourage offshore partner to hire/build/retain talented technologists - with techniques like offering higher rate for such engineers offshore
