Outsourcing as a Trend

Demand for outsourcing has never been healthier, and a lot of service specialists are growing and getting more optimistic - perhaps too optimistic.

The first half of 2008 came in as the best half in more than 10 years. However, like Indian heritage service providers have long been dependent on the project based, discretionary type of work for their growth and haven't participated as much as one would have assumed in the uptick in traditional outsourcing of non-discretionary functions.

The vibrant global outsourcing market may spark enthusiastic expectations of immediate demand, creating one of the biggest risks to the offshore-based providers. Some sobering realities of this paradox are already surfacing and in this new climate expectation-management will become the differentiating factor.

This is a comment from the article - Outsourcing the Offshore Operations. This is an insight from the commenter which very well presented the truth of outsourcing as a trend.
