I’m telling you, I can’t make this stuff up!
Seriously, according to this article on AustralianIT, CIOs in Australia are less than happy with the results of outsourcing. And, though it’s no surprise to me, CIOs in the US are even less happy! According to the article, roughtly one-third of the Australian CIOs were unhappy, but fully 50% of the US CIOs were unhappy with their decision to outsource! (I hope my former employers are reading this!)
So, I hope that executives start to think more before the send jobs off-shore. Cheaper isn’t always better!
