B2B Start-ups and Outsourcing: Lessons Learned
By Dmitry Stillermann
Dmitry Stillermann, Vice President of Capital Markets at DataArt, shares “key lessons that B2B technology-intensive start-ups, even beyond the boundaries of the financial services industry, will benefit from.” From proof of concept, to the technology mix to responsibility balance, Stillermann outlines the essentials of a successful engagement.
- “Start your product development with a small yet tangible Proof of Concept that will not be released to customers, but will help you validate and adjust your vision before plunging into a full-fledged and costly development effort.
- Pay attention to the technology choices you are making and consciously assess the trade-offs between the cutting edge and the proven.
- Make sure that the startup team has sufficient capability in-house to integrate and control all of the key aspects of the project, both at the level of business and technical implementation.”
