Offshore outsourcing is getting more than its due

by svenkatesh In reply to Offshore, Onshore: The Fu ...

Its about understanding that "Outsourcing" is a term given to what is nothing more than an organic evolution of the way business is conducted. This is something that is going to continue and will not end in the next 10 or 20 years.<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://blogs.ittoolbox.com/emergingtech/outsource/archives/004636.asp?rss=1">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

The 'Phenomenal' failure of Outsourcing

by svenkatesh In reply to Offshore, Onshore: The Fu ...

This entry is prompted by a thought provoking analysis by Deepa in her blog. It is easier to ensure individual project success, but are we thinking enough about the phenomenon of outsourcing and the obstacles in its way?...<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://blogs.ittoolbox.com/emergingtech/outsource/archives/005499.asp?rss=1">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Time to really fear India

by svenkatesh In reply to Offshore, Onshore: The Fu ...

I thought that India was a little way off from threatening higher 'value' US jobs. That doesn't seem to be the case any more. It looks like it really is the time to fear India. (Whither China?)...<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://blogs.ittoolbox.com/emergingtech/outsource/archives/005771.asp?rss=1">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Collaboration not outsourcing

by svenkatesh In reply to Offshore, Onshore: The Fu ...

BT's CEO Ben Verwaayen feels that the way we are looking at outsourcing is all wrong. Its not 'outsourcing' as much as it is 'collaboration' as he calls it.

The Butterfly Effect

I was wondering when it would happen. Well, my dear readers, it finally is happening. When the India software story started there were small noises about it.

The future of India as an outsourcing destination

by svenkatesh In reply to Offshore, Onshore: The Fu ...

Hiring is at all time high - and it looks like its going to go higher still. The big outsourcers like Wipro, Infosys and Satyam are building armies of 50 and 60 thousand developers.

Getting quality people at reasonable rates is getting to be a problem. I fear that eventually outsourcing vendors caught in the pincer grip of falling prices and rising costs will be slowly driven out of business.<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://blogs.ittoolbox.com/emergingtech/outsource/archives/The-future-of-India-as-an-outsourcing-destination-8527?rss=1">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>
