2009 Perspectives on Outsourcing

Recent Surveys (reported in IEEE Computer, May 2009) suggest that US firms are changing their global perspective on IT outsourcing albeit slowly.  It seems that prices, tax regimes and new evidence of instability are putting companies off of more outsourcing to India at least for now.  They are taking an ambivalent view of China  - negative for similar reasons to India and positive because China is at least a reasonably mature alternative to India. Two interesting points in the report: New outsourcing initiatives are less likely this year because of the start-up cost; and Idaho and Indiana are represented on the list of emerging outsourcing locations.  Hmmm!
