Outsorcing, CIO.com, good articles
Also an in-depth article on the same subject here:
"It's a difficult area for CIOs to manage. Work is much easier to do with offshore workers onsite, but to cut costs they must push as much overseas as possible. Conversely, the more manpower based offshore, the more project problems and delays. Barry-Wehmiller's Hergenroether says the amount of workers you can reasonably send offshore depends on the type of work being done. Industry- or company-specific system development requires more developers onsite. Legacy maintenance or simple upgrades may not require a soul."
"Looks like a guide for how to stay employed in the good 'ol U.S. of A."
Our company just got into outsorcing and I already feel like a piece of beef up for auction or a slave with a chain around his neck being sold to the cheapest bidder.(because they suppressed salaries 3 years prior)What really hurts is I am 59 and with the company for 30 years and because of my health it would be hard to go anywhere else.Ah! not to worry my company said the outsorcer may offer me a job with similar benefits and if I did not take it the would sever my @ss without severence pay.Oh well just another step toward global socialism!!!!!
