Regardless of whether e-commerce is in the immediate business focus or not, many companies are already counting on having the Tech & Development department in-house.

Tech & Development - The change from outsourcing candidate to the best protected crown jewel of a company

In the early 2000s after the New Economy Crash, the topic Information Technology was long held as a typical outsourcing candidate. At that time, many Chief Financial Officers (CFO) were still in C-Level representing IT and the Chief Information Officer (CIO)often was not considered part of the board.
e-Commerce was little developed at that time, Intershop had just released Enfinity and Magento was also only at the beginning.
At that time, many companies were increasingly taking advantage of the effects in regions such as Eastern Europe wherePHP Developers or Web Developers were often available at just a fifth of the cost compared to central and western Europe. With increasing digitization, the Indian market also caught up, took over many of the functions and offered Full Stack Developersor Software Architectsat an unrivaled cost.

But after globalization picked up speed in the 2010s and digital transformation began to be an issue for every company latest in 2015, more and more companies found themselves in the position of offshoring on the hand standardized jobs such as SAP Developer or Quality Assurance (QA) Engineers but now and then the strategic question predominated whether one should want this at all?

The background is that with the increasing influence of Data & Business Intelligence also leading positions likeDirector of Business Intelligence ,Director of Data Science orHead of Development found their way into companies. And these offered the C-Level often opposed pure cost savings and successfully demonstrated the strategic value of in-house development of Tech & Development Units together with digital product management.
“Data is the new gold” – this statement has never been more true than it is today. And therefore the way data is collected, processed (ETL) and evaluated today through e.g. Data Scientists or Data Engineers has become a crucial competitive advantage. Therefore, standardized software in e.g. Business Development & Digital Sales or in e-Commerce should no longer be used.

Stakeholders like Director of e-Commerce, Online Shop Manager or e-Commerce Analyst also have more and more special requirements, which are mostly used by specialists such as Magento Engineers, Hybris SAP Commerce Cloud Engineers, Salesforce Commerce Cloud Engineers, Intershop Engineers or Shopify Engineers .
Often these were then adapted to the in-house systems using special APIs from Salesforce Consultants, SAP Hana Specialists or Microsoft Dynamics Navision Engineers . And you shouldn’t let this knowledge out of your own house to protect company secrets.

Accordingly, the Tech & Development area has undergone an exciting journey in recent decades, from an outsourcing candidate to a well-kept trade secret. The cost savings in the formerly cheap Eastern European markets are no longer available due to the shortage of skilled workers in Germany and the exorbitant increase in demand. Sometimes the Head of Development today is even part of theC-Level together with the management since his knowledge is now at least as valuable as that of a manager.
