India is unrivaled in its scale and availability of skills when it comes to outsourcing, according to an index produced by AT Kearney. However, Asia as a whole seems to be the champion of the world’s outsourcing. Karl Flinders writes about the rankings for ComputerWeekly.
On Top of the World
The top rankings in the AT Kearney Index were, in order, India, China, Malaysia, Mexico, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines. Mexico is notably the only country in the top seven not in Asia. And while India of course excels in all regards, each country on this list still offers something hopeful. The IT sector is growing in China even as wages rise. English-language skills are improving in Indonesia and Thailand. Malaysia is notable for being politically stable and multilingual. And the Philippines has an awesome export sector that is second only to India. But yes, India is still on top, and here is why:
“In addition to a continually evolving service portfolio in [India’s] core business, leading IT services firms are expanding their traditional offerings to include research and development, product development and other niche services, drawing on their extensive experience and highly skilled workforces,” the report said.
“Moreover, the line between IT and BPO [business process outsourcing] is blurring as players offer bundled and specialised services to their clients.”
