IT Outsourcing : We've been doing it for more than 25 years.
Why are we still doing it wrong?
It was 25 years back when the first corporation thought of this bright idea of farming out part of its IT department to somebody else. They called it time-sharing, and it was supposed to cut costs dramatically. No matter what the current term, the basic concept is Outsourcing.
"A truly global company will be one that uses the intellect and resources of every corner of the world. India is a developed country as far as intellectual capital is concerned. The opening of (offshore) development centres mark a new level of commitment by GE in india."
Jack Welch (General Electric)
Three years ago, during my visit to India, the country was emerging as an IT
superpower. Today, the country is handling the most sophisticated projects in the
world. I am impressed with the talent we have in our India Development Centre
and the quality of software being developed."
