What Is The Difference Between An Indian and Eastern European Programmer?

Eastern European Indian programmer hugo 520Shared experiences by Hugo Messer, CEO Bridge Global IT Staffing, The Netherlands - A few weeks back, I had a conversation with somebody about the differences between Indian and Eastern European programmers. Or maybe we spoke about programmers in general. The thing I find always hard in our business is to answer questions about these differences. For I believe the real answer actually is: it depends on the person you have in front of you. there are good and mediocre developers in the Netherlands, Sweden and any other place on earth.

Move towards multiple sourcing locations

banglade picture kpmg 520With the rise in attractive offshore locations, a new paradigm is emerging in which large buyers are assessing several attractive locations. A single destination may not offer all the advantages. Hence, companies are strategically evaluating the outsourcing options and combining the complementary strengths of several locations resulting in a more robust and flexible services delivery model. Strategic decisions on choosing the right mix of outsourcing destinations require a complex series of evaluations and trade-offs. These decisions are based on a host of criteria which include overall business environment, cost and quality of services, government support and initiatives, data and intellectual property security and privacy legislations. The advent of cloud computing as a delivery model has further strengthened this by reducing the cost of incremental infrastructure required at every location.

The History of IT-Offshoring to India in Germany

I Ger wm 640Offshore Outsourcing 1.0 - The Indian off-shoring industry has enjoyed remarkable success over the last 10 years with the phenomenal rise of global players who within a short period of time have grown to challenge long established global leaders for a position of dominance in the global IT market.

Though it is a well known fact that the success of the Indian off-shorers rested largely on the huge English speaking IT talent pool of India, and the first break through via the Y2K projects, little is known about the presence and growth of the Indian IT players in the German market. Given the markets conservative nature, clients are often unwilling to talk about their experiences and neither are financial figures publicly available for Indian IT companies' operations in Germany.
One can take a guess from certain financial reports but today's complex accounting methods often obscure the exact figures. Here I am not suggesting any malpractice, but off shoring is a complex process to account due to its nature – services originate somewhere, get created somewhere and get delivered somewhere else.
