A Guide to Global Sourcing

Cost may be a major advantage of offshore working, but it would be a mistake to ignore the quality benefits, says Elizabeth Anne Sparrow in A Guide to Global Sourcing, from Viva (http://www.vivagroupindia.com/) .
"IT (information technology) professionals employed in the offshore industry tend to be educated to a higher academic level than their colleagues employed in similar jobs in the US and Western Europe." Also, because wage levels are lower, offshore service providers are able to `invest in training and infrastructure,' despite operating under competitive conditions.
