Canada Wants To Become The Next India For U.S. Software Companies
As i was browsing the net , i came across this site
It says Canada is becoming an attractive option many American software developers . India has been one of the first option for US for software outsourcing . In a meeting even one of my proffessors quoted that “if you say i am from India and you say i know about computers and have a group of friends who can help , thats it you will be flooded with offers for projects ” .
India has been known for talents , commitment and hard work .
“Although cost savings was the key consideration fueling offshoring to India and other countries, near-shoring to Canada, and to a lesser extent Mexico, was chosen for a number of reasons, including closer proximity and being in the same or similar time zones. Also driving near-shoring to Canada by U.S based software companies is similarity in language, culture, security, and perceived quality of work.
“This clearly shows what roles other factors play in addition to cost in outsourcing,” said Michael Vax, CEO of Luxoft Canada.
But that doesn’t mean that cost-related issues aren’t also drivers for Canadian outsourcing, he said. “The exchange rate is good,” plus it can be easier to find talent since Canada isn’t faced with the sort of H-1B visa caps the U.S. faces in hiring foreign-born tech talent, he said.
In fact, American-based developers, most recently Microsoft, have been expanding their own development staffs in Canada, he said. In July, Microsoft announced plans for a Vancouver development center that would initially staff 200 but could grow to 800.”
The IT industry has brought money but took away our culture . It has its own advantage and disadvantage as all . So much of the american work is being done here in India that , it is said that ruppes and dollars will come equal soon .
So i think if US moves out to Cananda , with so much talent here , i am sure India will start moving into the “giving Business” domain too . India will getting bigger .
