Engineering May Be 'Next Big Thing' to Outsource

Ann All

The next big area of demand for outsourcing? It could be engineering skills, according to research by India's National Association of Software and Services Companies and Booz Allen Hamilton.


They predict the global market for such services will grow from $10 billion to $15 billion in 2005 to up to $225 billion by 2020.


Driving the demand are many of the same forces that come into play with other types of outsourcing: downward price pressure, demand for highly specialized skills, and a need to get new products to market more rapidly.

I work in a facility where out IT has been outsourced to Perot,(Ross Perot)systems. We have over one hundred people in IT. When our network, printer or fax machines are down, we call India? We still have one grunt on the ground who has to do the repairs. Where the hell is the savings. I think people like Bill Gates should be outsourced. Biggest anti-American business man in the US. Maybe India or China will offer a new windows operating systen at a much reduced cost.GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!! Reply
