Software offshore outsourcing is strong pillar of software development. Software offshore outsourcing involves many risks, due to internal or external factors, that must be recognized and managed. Each organization that deals with the offshore outsourcing must be well aware of all the risk factors and barriers in the offshore outsourcing to maintain the quality of their product. It is very important for the Pakistan’s software industry to improve and maintain the quality of the products with minimal risk and compete with other countries in offshore outsourcing. The problem addressed in this research article is to minimize the risks occurring in offshore software outsourcing. For that purpose, we propose some offshore outsourcing risk mitigation guidelines for the software industry of Pakistan. We use empirical analysis and the qualitative method. A comprehensive literature review is carried out. The risk factors related to offshore outsourcing specifically for Pakistan’s software industry are generated empirically.
