  outsourcing market?

Interview Answer

1 Answer


First, prior to going in for any of the interviews go to the company website, look up the analyst you'll be speaking with and read the different titles of the reports they've written to understand their background/focus area.

In this case, the answer is pretty straightforward and would be assumed to be relatively basic knowledge. Large numbers of IT jobs have migrated to places like India because of much larger pools of skill resources at relatively competitive prices (although this is changing). Companies opt to outsource certain aspects of their IT functions (help desk, testing, support, development) to companies in these areas, to cut down on costs and get rid of complexity.

More recently, near sourcing is becoming common as well, as large IT services companies expand to have local presences outside of their main operating bases.
