In today’s highly competitive economy organizations are under pressure to develop products/projects at a rapid and cost-effective rate or make upgrades to existing technologies quickly. These IT solutions need to be implemented without compromising on their quality standards or the organization’s ../Resources. The answer to such problems has often been quoted as “outsourcing”.
So what really is outsourcing? Outsourcing can be defined as the delegation of non-core operations or jobs from internal production within a business to an external entity that specializes in that operation. It is a business decision that is often made to focus on core-competencies or to lower costs. Due to the nature of programming, the outsourcing of software development services has evolved much more rapidly as compared to other domains.
The Indian IT services industry has been well recognized globally as a destination which is value for money coupled with deep domain expertise. The following are a list of reasons why outsourcing to Indian companies are so popular:
1. Cost-Effective Services
Outsourcing to India can help global organizations save as much as 30-40% of operating costs! India has a large pool of, educated, trained and technically skilled manpower and this number only keeps growing every year. The vast pool has encouraged specialization on the supply side, and enabled employers to be selective and build on quality on the demand-side, keeping the industry highly competitive.
2. Communication Skills
India has the largest population of English speaking audience after North America. Due to its colonial legacy, English became a part of the Indian primary education system, which has now become an advantage. China and Japan have challenged the world with their technological and manufacturing expertise, but have found it difficult to introduce English as the medium of grassroots education. Over half of Fortune 500 companies employ Indian Software talent as India provides a pool of over 4 million highly trained English speaking technical personnel (second only to the USA). Language barriers cease to exist when you deal with the Indian IT services industry.
3. Time Zone Advantages
The geographical position of India as a country, proves to be beneficial because of the time zone difference between Asian countries and the West. You can get your work done while your business closes down in the evening. This is especially beneficial for companies in the IT services industry that need to provide round-the-clock customer support with a flexibility and faster turn. 24x7x365 technical support becomes a reality at an affordable cost.
4. India’s stable government
India has celebrated more than 60 years of democracy and has one of the world’s most stable governments. Building up the IT services sector has been a top priority for the Indian government. India has a Ministry of Information Technology that has been quick to approve legislation and the implementation of IT policies and has streamlined regulatory processes. The Indian government has even released a bill termed as the “IT ACT 2000”. With this kind of support companies in India have been able to build high-tech IT parks which has the best in technology and infrastructure. The Indian government has even permitted 100% foreign equity.
5. Global organizations’ most preferred choice
India has been the most preferred choice among global organizations when it comes to outsourcing of IT services. In the U.S alone, more than 80+% have ranked India as their first choice, when outsourcing software and IT services. There has been global recognition of India as an outsourcing superpower for development services.
