Do you have the bandwidth to manage this whole new challenge? Is it worth spending time and efforts with that or outsourcing the development project will be a good move? This brainstorming will help you to define a very important question. Do you want to hire an in-house developer or a remote developer? This is very important and crucial decision to be made.
