The outsourcing of technology and development projects has taken on increasing prominence in the business world. Why? No longer confined to manufacturing and blue collar work, with offshoring, businesses are able to build larger, more highly qualified IT departments for the same cost as smaller, less robust teams domestically.
According to Raj Ponnuraj, Founder and CEO of SRI Infotech, offshore development projects allow for the “full manifestation of the internet in action.” Prior to the internet, lack of high speed, efficient and international communications, infrastructure and information sharing required onshore technology development personnel. Development work needed to be done locally to ensure success.
Today, Raj believes that “people who are good technically do well in their careers no matter where they are located.”
