SIDEBAR: Outsourcing in the news

“[Organizations] that can combine the resources of outsourced engineering services with their internal capability will have a much better chance to continuously innovate, increase speed time to market, and produce the products consumers want, while lowering operating costs.” — Ken Taormina, “The Power of Engineering Services Outsourcing in a Challenging Market,” IndustryWeek, April 20, 2011

“… Of the CFOs and senior financial executives quizzed by [analyst house] Ovum, 38.5 percent said they view offshoring to India as unacceptable risk, while 44.2 percent said the same about South and Central America. Just 29 percent said the same about cloud computing. Another major factor in businesses not wanting to pursue the ‘high-risk strategy’ … is loyalty to staff, with 44 percent saying this issue is holding them back.” — Tim Ferguson, “Outsourcing, Offshoring: Not All It’s Cracked up to Be,” Silicon.com, May 5, 2011

“Indian outsourcing companies are on an acquisition spree, driven by an increasing need to both deepen and broaden their capabilities in their quest for growth and scale. A key driver of this activity is a little-noticed trend that should become more obvious as the years roll by: Business-process outsourcing, or BPO, is expected to grow faster than information technology services outsourcing.” — Sridhar K. Chari of Mint, “Rising Demand for Outsourcing Services,” The Wall Street Journal, May 5, 2011
