What's the True Hourly Cost of Offshoring?

IEEE Software, 2016

Most companies have learned that cost calculations for offshore outsourcing shouldn't be limited to hourly wages. Looking at salaries alone, you could naively hope for cost reductions of up to 90 percent. However, don't underestimate the cost of knowledge transfer, travel, attrition, miscommunication, and so on. But does an opportunity for cost reduction still exist? To answer this question, researchers ...

  • IT organizational transformation, knowledge integration, and IT assimilation: A case study

    This paper mainly analyzes how a firm assimilates information technology (IT) into organization work processes by restructuring the IT functions. Knowledge integration and organization coordination theory are used to build a conceptual research model to investigate the IT organizational transformation in Digital China as a case study. Then results indicate that the firm can integrate the individual knowledge of the senior executives, business managers/users, and IT professionals across the firm into the organizational knowledge through the IT organizational transformation, to effectively assimilate the information technology into the organizational business and decision-making processes.

  • What's the True Hourly Cost of Offshoring?

    Most companies have learned that cost calculations for offshore outsourcing shouldn't be limited to hourly wages. Looking at salaries alone, you could naively hope for cost reductions of up to 90 percent. However, don't underestimate the cost of knowledge transfer, travel, attrition, miscommunication, and so on. But does an opportunity for cost reduction still exist? To answer this question, researchers delved into the collaboration between a Dutch software company and an Indian vendor. They gathered evidence for direct costs and quantified perceptions of indirect costs associated with an in-house team in the Netherlands and the outsourced offshore team in India. The offshore team's true hourly costs took three years to become comparable with those of the in-house team. Getting close to the break-even point took five years. Learning costs due to offshore employee turnover were the primary cost factor to get under control.

  • Empirical study of distinct features and challenges of joint development of information systems: The case of ABC bank

    The internal development and outsourced development of information systems have been studied intensively, but little research has been conducted on the joint development mode. This paper describes the benefits and problems encountered in the joint development of accounting management information systems based on a real case. The case illustrates some distinct advantages, such as full control over the development schedule, the flexibility with resource allocation, and insurance for sustained active participation by the end-users. However, this development mode also involves potential problems, e.g., potential conflicts arising from diverse backgrounds and cultures of the various stakeholders and challenges to manage personnel from outside partners.

  • An eye on India: outsourcing debate continues

    US companies increasingly began outsourcing software development work to countries such as India, which touts low personnel costs and plentiful technical expertise, during the dotcom shakeout. Today, the trend shows no sign of stopping. It has changed the landscape for US software professionals, reshaping how companies plan projects and choose employees. US software developers will not be going the way of the dinosaurs, analysts say, but they will need to cleverly manage their careers and thoroughly understand the new environment. At the same time, businesses are learning more about offshore outsourcing's challenges. The author discusses the growing debate about its merits.

  • Distributed software engineering: Research and education challenges

    Software development has undergone a major change in recent years, partly but not only as a result of the outsourcing phenomenon. Most software projects today are distributed, raising a whole slate of new issues of management, coordination, licensing, stakeholder involvement, specification, quality assurance (in particular testing) and maintenance. While there has been much discussion of the political and economic aspects of outsourcing, the technical consequences and issues of globalized software development are not completely understood. This talk presents a number of research challenges in distributed software engineering. It introduces a number of organizational and technical solutions that we have found to be efficient in industrial practice. On the educational side, it builds on our experience at ETH -- in particular our courses on "software engineering for outsourced and offshore development" and our multi-university distributed project course -- to discuss how to integrate distributed software development into the teaching of modern software engineering principles and practices.

  • A Framework to Enable Offshore Outsourcing

    Offshore outsourcing (offshoring is increasingly important in IT projects. The anticipated gains are primarily cost savings and span to - amongst others - shorter-time-to-market, address scarce qualified labor force, bypass local regulations, laws, and taxes, and work following the sun. However, many offshoring IT projects fail [3] and significantly miss their anticipated improvements mainly due to cost and quality issues.. We identified categories of projects that are likely to perform well in an offshoring scenario and some that won't. They are related to specific business processes, differences in language (client vs. offshore partners), and tacit knowledge. The paper at hand specifically regards the latter category of projects and suggests an offshoring framework to enable distributed, blended workforce in a real-world business context. The framework has been developed in large scale projects with IT service firms and consultancies and has been evaluated in a large distributed project.

  • QoS-aware provider selection in e-services supply chain

    With the advent of service-oriented architecture and cloud services, provider selection in e-service outsourcing is a very important research topic and decision problem. This paper proposes a multi-objective programming model for basic service provider selection in e-service supply chain which optimized e-service outsourcing cost and e-service quality simultaneously. We then use a sample e-commerce supply chain as an example to show the applicability and necessity of the suggested model.

  • Be successful, take a hostage or "outsourcing the outsourcing Manager"

    Working on a project where the work is distributed across the globe need not be a dreadful experience. It is possible to set up a distributed team so that the regular team members are not affected by the issues pertaining to the aspects of the global setup. This paper sheds some light on the problems discovered , analyzes what often goes wrong and suggests one of many possible solutions. Take the "full service" approach; outsource the management of the outsourced project. Using an example of a project done between the USA West Coast and Slovakia advantages of the proposed solution are evident.
