Advantages of Offshoring over Captive Centers

It has been more than a decade when software companies started off-shoring their product development work in order to cut their costs largely. This trend is being followed by the companies around the globe to make things easier and cost effective.
Today more than 500 product companies have jumped from offshore bandwagon and established captive centers in India, China etc. The expectation of the company’s that have established captives is to have close control over the offshore R&D operations and thought they could make things easy and happening.

A study showed that the interest of establishing captive centers is being reduced day by day. The challenges that captives are facing is resulting in a significant decrease in the number of new captives that are being introduced. Some of the key challenges that result in decreasing interests towards captives are –

  1. Lack of Scale – Scale plays a major factor for operations as it impacts every element of a captive’s performance: cost, attrition, productivity, recruitment etc. The factor that plays a major impact is in-country branding. In places like India and China people always have a preference to be associated with big names/mnc’s to grow faster. So potential employees always have a preference for companies like Google, Accenture, Infosys etc, who have named themselves as local leaders rather than companies that are never heard before.
  2. Higher than anticipated Costs – Many companies are not willing to pay good salaries to attract top talent and underestimate high G&A costs which can crush a small organization. In order to scale up, captives often pay high above the market rates throwing the entire cost model out of whack. Hence the average cost of captive’s are loaded almost 20% higher than working with a provider.
  3. High Attrition High attrition rate effects productivity and destroys the morale. Industry statistics show attrition at captive centers is almost twice as high as the average provider rate. The factors that are responsible for captive’s attrition are –
  • Lack of career path opportunity, especially at smaller captives.
  • Second-class-citizen status: Many companies treat their captives as their low cost offshore teams. This causes low morale and breaks the loyalty bond towards the organization.

Poor Development Process and Coordination with the Onsite team – Many organizations face difficulty in establishing strong development process and implementing productivity measures. But very few of captives are able to implement productivity measures like CMMi, Six Sigma etc to improve the processes for knowledge transfer and other collaborations. These measures taken have a direct impact on productivity as a whole.

Management Attention Wanes – The major factor that harms the cooperation with the onsite team and captive centers are the difference in time zones, which takes away the attention in focusing towards the core focus of the company. At the very beginning everybody are excited but afterwards the management attention moves to the rest thing. Further, in order to contribute to the next product release, the management is trying to ensure and focus in proper functioning of the captives.

The above limitations do not play any role in Off shoring. As Off shoring is just contracting with another company or person to do a particular job/function, and now every organization outsources in some way or other. Typically, the function being outsourced is considered non-core to the business. The firms that are providing the outsourcing services are third-party providers, or as they are more commonly called, Service Providers. These services providers are already well established with facilitating all resources and infrastructure that is required to carry out the development process.

Every company evaluates a service provider before outsourcing the work, based on –

  1. Strategic Thinking – In order to develop the organizations philosophy about the role of outsourcing in its activities.
  2. Evaluation and Selection – It is done in order to decide on the appropriate outsourcing projects and potential locations for the work to be done and service providers to do it.
  3. Contract and Development – It is done to work out the legal, pricing and service level agreement (SLA) terms.
  4. Outsourcing management or governance – To ensure, refining the ongoing working relationship between the client and outsourcing service providers.

The major advantages that drives offshoring than having a Captive Center is –

  1. Cost Savings – By outsourcing the work that were done in house will often reduce the employee levels and related costs, such as recruitment, supervision, salary and other benefits. This also reduces the cost of equipment obsolescence and depreciation. A portion of the cost savings will go to the outsourcer, but in return the company doesn’t need to invest a lot in setting up infrastructure and hiring people etc, thus making a huge cost savings and reduce the work load.
  2. Quality of Service – As your company will be the outsourcer’s customer; you will likely experience a “can-do attitude”, which may not be exhibited by an in-house employee.
  3. More Capital Funds – Off-shoring reduces the need to invest in non-core business functions, thereby making your capital investment free to make profits in the business.
  4. State-of-the-art-Technology – Due to the huge scope in this field, outsources have to spend time and money on the latest equipment and on employee training to get competitive edge on others. By outsourcing in certain areas, you are assured of receiving the most efficient services and latest technological expertise within that particular function.
  5. Price Stability – By IT outsourcing, you will likely be able to obtain stable pricing, eliminating the future need to shop around. It will also help to budget operating expenses and capital purchases more accurately, while potentially preventing the likelihood of surprise expenses.
  6. New Business Partners – Outsourcers are always to be viewed as your business partner. And as a business partner, they share in the desire to keep your company operating at its maximum potential.
  7. More time to focus on Core Business Activities – Outsourcing helps to focus more on your core business activities. As Management spends time in planning and directing the company’s business strategies and not wasting time in managing time in certain ancillary functions. This will help in improvising things in both the ways.

Offshore Outsourcing – Challenges In 2009

Found an interesting article on 2009 Offshoring challenges written by Maneet Puri - Director of LeXolution IT Services - have a look

The year 2008-09 has not been very good for businesses. With the global economic calamity and recession, businesses across the world have suffered severe damages. But the worst hit has been for the outsourcing industry. But the trouble doesn't end here. In fact, the offshore outsourcing industry has many other challenges staring at face. Here are some of them...


There was a time when offshore outsourcing was considered to be responsible for recession. However, at present economic recession poses as a severe threat to the outsourcing industry. Because of the bad state of American economy, Indian outsourcing industry that is almost solely dependent on the former has to face severe impacts. American companies have reduced their IT budgets and that leads to less (or no) work being outsourced to offshore continents.

Company Scandals

The Satyam debacle that happened recently made the whole world take notice of what has happened and question the ethics of Indian outsourcing companies. The scandal had exposed the dirty corruption practices of the industry and the international companies are much more skeptical about transferring their work to India now. The corporate governance of India is at question here and trying to gain back the confidence is quite a challenge.

Other Outsourcing Hubs

In addition to the sad market situation, there is also pressure of increasing competition. Though India is the world's favorite outsourcing destination, there are other emerging outsourcing centers like Philippines, China etc. Though Philippines is poor and lacks political stability, it is heavily banking on outsourcing to bring in country revenue. Like wise China, Russia and other countries of Eastern Europe are starting to compete with the service providers of India. In fact, China is on the second position after India in the field of offshore outsourcing.

Obama and American Policies

Obama has strong anti-outsourcing views and he has proposed the removal of tax benefits for companies that outsource their work to offshore continents. This would discourage more and more American companies to send their jobs overseas. This would add on to the already declined amount of outsourcing. The Indian outsourcing industry is faced with the huge challenge to overcome on this regards.

Indian Politics and Uncertainty

The general elections have taken place in India. And the new government has been formed. But it is yet to see the policies that are created for the offshore outsourcing industry. In fact, till the period of uncertainty is there, there will only be a skeptical attitude towards the outsourcing industry.

Indian outsourcing industry is going through a bad phase. It has all these challenges to cope up with and come over. But then again, the concept of offshore outsourcing has immense potential that cannot be undermined by any business. It is a powerful business strategy to cut investment costs and get access to high quality services and thus expand their profit margins. And this is something all businesses look forward to. Thus even in the wake of all these challenges, the Indian outsourcing industry has all the potential to come through unscathed.

All About ASP.Net Development

Today I have found a very good article on ASP.Net development. Here it is


ASP.NET, the next version of ASP, is a programming framework used to create enterprise-class Web Applications. These applications are accessible on a global basis leading to effecient information managment. The advantages ASP.NET offers is more than just the next version of ASP.


Since 1995, Microsoft has been constantly working to shift it's focus from Windows-based platforms to the Internet. As a result, Microsoft introduced ASP (Active Server Pages) in November 1996. ASP offered the efficiency of ISAPI applications along with a new level of simplicity that made it easy to understand and use. However, ASP script was an interpreted script and consisted unstructured code and was difficult to debug and maintain. As the web consists of many different technologies, software integration for Web development was complicated and required to understand many different technologies. Also, as applications grew bigger in size and became more complex, the number of lines of source code in ASP applications increased dramatically and was hard to maintain. Therefore, an architecture was needed that would allow development of Web applications in a structured and consistent way.

The .NET Framework was introduced with a vision to create globally distributed software with Internet functionality and interoperability. The .NET Framework consists of many class libraries, includes multiple language support and a common execution platform. It's a very flexible foundation on which many different types of top class applications can be developed that do different things. Developing Internet applications with the .NET Framework is very easy. ASP.NET is built into this framework, we can create ASP.NET applications using any of the built-in languages.

Unlike ASP, ASP.NET uses the Common Language Runtime (CLR) provided by the .NET Framework. This CLR manages execution of the code we write. ASP.NET code is a compiled CLR code instead of interpreted code (ASP). CLR also allows objects written in different languages to interact with each other. The CLR makes developement of Web applications simple.
Advantages Using ASP.NET
ASP.NET drastically reduces the amount of code required to build large applications
ASP.NET makes development simpler and easier to maintain with an event-driven, server-side programming model
ASP.NET pages are easy to write and maintain because the source code and HTML are together
The source code is executed on the server. The pages have lots of power and flexibility by this approach
The source code is compiled the first time the page is requested. Execution is fast as the Web Server compiles the page the first time it is requested. The server saves the compiled version of the page for use next time the page is requested
The HTML produced by the ASP.NET page is sent back to the browser. The application source code you write is not sent and is not easily stolen
ASP.NET makes for easy deployment. There is no need to register components because the configuration information is built-in
The Web server continuously monitors the pages, components and applications running on it. If it noticies memory leaks, infinite loops, other illegal software or activities, it seamlessly kills those activities and restarts itself
ASP.NET validates information (validation controls) entered by the user without writing a single line of code
ASP.NET easily works with ADO .NET using data-binding and page formatting features
ASP.NET applications run fater and counters large volumes of users without performance problems
Differences between ASP.NET and Client-Side Technologies

Client-side refers to the browser and the machine running the browser. Server-side on the other hand refers to a Web server.
Client-Side Scripting
Javascript and VBScript and generally used for Client-side scripting. Client-side scripting executes in the browser after the page is loaded. Using client-side scripting you can add some cool features to your page. Both, HTML and the script are together in the same file and the script is download as part of the page which anyone can view. A client-side script runs only on a browser that supports scripting and specifically the scripting language that is used. Since the script is in the same file as the HTML and as it executes on the machine you use, the page may take longer time to download.

Server-Side Scripting

ASP.NET is purely server-side technology. ASP.NET code executes on the server before it is sent to the browser. The code that is sent back to the browser is pure HTML and not ASP.NET code. Like client-side scripting, ASP.NET code is similar in a way that it allows you to write your code alongside HTML. Unlike client-side scripting, ASP.NET code is executed on the server and not in the browser. The script that you write alongside your HTML is not sent back to the browser and that prevents others from stealing the code you developed.

Vote for “India – Still An Outsourcing King”?? YES / NO

When anyone talks about outsourcing, India's name comes up in mind as an undisputed King in Business Process outsourcing, Offshore Software Development and ITES. Due to new emerging countries in Outsourcing field now a question arises “Will India remain outsourcing King? “

In one of the best IT research magazine Gartner says, “In terms of offshore centers, India remains the undisputed leader, with China and Russia emerging as strong contenders” Gartner identifies the growth in offshore outsourcing to India and other developing countries as one of the most significant shifts in IT in the near term.

But competition in not over yet, another research magazine Forbes report says “similar low-cost technology centers in China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Russia and Pakistan are sprouting up and already competing for a share in outsourcing projects, making it increasingly unlikely that India can retain its "reign" as "the outsourcing king" for long.

The figure of $50 billion software exports by 2008 as predicted by Indian National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) is too ambitious and may be difficult to realize. If India fails to meet this target, it may lose its competitive edge.

However, it is too early to speculate in those terms because under the given circumstances there is no threat to India's status in the outsourcing world and for various reasons the West will always prefer India over its rivals. In fact, it can boast of adding more feathers to its crown. What do you think, Will India loose his place in Outsourcing and Offshore Software Development?? Rohit Raghvendra Tripathi

Offshore Product Development

Today we need Offshore Product Development because everyone wants best work in cheap rates. Offshore product development (OPD) is the form of outsourcing where product-engineering services are outsourced in the creation of a software product. Partnering with an offshore software company can significantly lower the cost of developing a product. This can directly affect the bottom line of your product development initiative. I think this is the reason why multinational companies are opening offices in different countries like Russia, India, Canada and many other countries so that they can outsource software products at cheap rates. In recent past many silicon-based companies started offshoring their product development and software development activities to locations such India, Russia, Canada etc.

India is a major country in this field of offshore product development followed by Russia and China, but other countries are also in this race like Ukraine, Vietnam, Philippines, Belarus, Czech Republic, Poland, and Hungary. Now coming to India, it is a major player of offshore product development game. Indian cities like Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Gurgaon, and Noida are the favorite locations for multinational companies in India. You know why India is famous place in the world for Offshore software Development ???? because india is my country and i am Rohit Tripathi

Offshore Software Development

Offshore outsourcing is the practice of contracting with an external organization to perform some business functions in a country other than the one where the product or service will be sold or consumed. It can be distinguished from off shoring, in which the functions are performed in a foreign country by a foreign subsidiary of the company concerned.
Today, there are various functions such as software development, software maintenance, product development, remote infrastructure management, payroll processing, and document conversion, research, etc. that are being offshore outsourced to a variety of low cost countries such as India, Philippines, Czech Republic, Russia and South Africa.
There are so many companies, which have emerged as successful users of offshore outsourcing services.

When comes to Offshore software development, India is always plays a cost effective and best quality service provider. Although it needs to be careful that each had their own lessons on this journey and that their boats sailed through rough waters before reaching their respective destinations!
So everybody needs to be take care of Risk, Rewards, Challenges and Opportunities in offshore outsourcing.

Offshore Software Development in Gurgaon

Today India is a leader in offshore software development. Many Indian cities are progressing in the field of outsourced product development and I think offshore software development and outsourcing are taking Indian economy to new heights.

Gurgaon is one of leading cities in India when it comes to outsourcing and software development. Gurgaon is best known as one of India's most prominent outsourcing and offshoring hubs.

For Offshore Software Development – Gurgaon in India has finally come out as the new favorite destination for software development. It’s like new Silicon Valley of India. Major companies of the world have opened their center to Gurgaon for its compatibility, good infrastructure, pool of skilled IT engineers and closeness to capital New Delhi. Companies have found all the necessary elements to stabilize themselves in India.

Offshore software Development is not so easy to decide as it may aspects. Major Indian cities are lining up to attract business from US and Europe. While Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai seems apparent choice for many; Gurgaon is a step ahead of others. The above cities have high cost of manpower and maintenance is pretty expensive. Contrary to that – Gurgaon is cheaper, closer to Indian capital and enjoys the benefit of the presence of highly skilled engineers and manpower.

Difference between Software development and Programming

Software Development is a complex task. It requires careful planning and a clear understanding the need to develop an application

Software development and software programming are not the same. Software development refers to the entire process of creating software. This includes programming, but also includes things such as scheduling, design, review process, etc.In actuality the terms are frequently used interchangeably, since any programmer needs to be able to schedule his time and do basic planning. The term "software development" was developed to emphasize the planned aspect of the development process.

Offshore Software Development

Offshore Software Development is provision of software development services by an external supplier positioned in a country that is geographically remote from the client enterprise; a type of offshore outsourcing. The main reason behind the companies to use offshore software development services is the higher development cost of the local service providers. The global software R&D services market as contrasted to ITO and BPO is rather young and currently is at early stages of its development.

India is the leading country in the Offshore software Development and Outsourcing software development . Other offshore software development destinations include Philippines, Israel, Republic of Ireland, Eastern Europe (Ukraine, Belarus[citation needed], Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary), Egypt, Argentina.

In India, offshore software development can be performed in all major cities and regions of the country. The cities are categorized into Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3. Bangalore, Mumbai is in Tier 1, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, NOIDA, Gurgaon, Navi Mumbai is in tier 1-1, Kolkata, Mangalore, Mohali/Chandigarh, Bhopal these reigons are in tier 2, and Coimbatore, Mysore, Nasik, Kochin, Nagpur, Indore, Jaipur, Kanpur, Patna these all in tier 3.

So india’s future is Very Bright in Offshore Software Development and Outsourcing software development
