Hot Spot for Tech Outsourcing: The United States

Salaries have risen in places like South Asia, making outsourcing there less of a bargain. In addition, as brands pour energy and money into their websites and mobile apps, more of them are deciding that there is value in having developers in the same time zone, or at least on the same continent.PhotoMark Orttung, the chief executive of Nexient, which is based in Newark, Calif., but set up centers in Michigan and Indiana to tap workers who didn’t want to leave the Midwest.Credit Jason Henry for The New York TimesMany of these domestic outsourcers are private, little-known companies like Rural Sourcing, Catalyte, Eagle Creek Software Services and Onshore Outsourcing. But IBM, one of the country’s foremost champions of the offshore outsourcing model, has announced plans to hire 25,000 more workers in the United States over the next four years.As a result, the growth of offshore software work is slowing, to nearly half the pace of recent years.“The nature of work is changing,” said Vishal Sikka, chief executive of Infosys, an Indian outsourcing giant. “It is very local. And you often need whole teams locally,” a departure from the offshore formula of having a project manager on-site but the work done abroad.“It’s not enough to have people offshore in India,” he added.Infosys announced in May that it planned to hire 10,000 workers in the United States over the next two years, starting with centers in Indiana and North Carolina.The offshore industry is not imperiled, analysts say. But from 2016 to 2021, the offshore services industry will have average yearly growth of 8 percent, the research firm IDC estimated. The rate in the previous five years was 15 percent.“Domestic sourcing is here to stay, and it’s going to grow rapidly,” said Helen Huntley, an analyst at the research firm Gartner.PhotoNexient’s new office in Newark. The company has added 150 people in the last two years, and plans to hire a few hundred more over the next year.Credit Jason Henry for The New York TimesThe first wave of internet-era digital change in business, starting in the 1990s, focused mainly on automating back-office tasks like payrolls and financial reporting. The software involved was a collection of huge programs maintained by armies of engineers.Continue reading the main storyThe internet allowed that work to be sent to low-wage nations, especially India. That brought the rise of the big outsourcing companies like Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys.Offshore services companies still excel at maintaining the software that runs the essential back-office systems of corporations.

Storm Damage In Albany, Georgia

On January 2, 2017, at least nine tornados and straight line winds ran through Albany, GA damaging all sections of the city and extending into the rural areas beyond the city. There was not a neighborhood left untouched, and over 16 million dollars in damages has been counted. Thousands were left without power initially, and eight days later, as I type this, there are still hundreds without power tonight. Temperatures dipped into the 20s over the weekend, and due to looting in powerless neighborhoods, many were reluctant to relocate to shelters. […]
