India is still the world's favourite destination for offshore outsourcing, but attractive cost structures in the Philippines, Vietnam and Indonesia and the rapid growth of the business in China are posing tough competition, according to a new study by Gartner Inc.
In the study, the IT research and advisory firm identified the Top 30 countries around the world for globally sourced activities in 2010-11, rating them on the basis of 10 criteria.
Many organisations that choose to move IT services to lower-cost countries are daunted by the task of determining which country, or countries, would best suit their requirement.
Gartner conducted an analysis of these countries to assess their capabilities and potential as offshore services locations, it said. India retained its position as the most successful country among global offshore locations, as per the Gartner study. Published Date: 2010-12-25 10:54:21 GMT
