At a time when companies face increasing cost pressures, offshoring IT work to India not only offers the opportunity to reap factor cost savings, but also to industrialize the IT delivery process. Intelligent IT-Offshoring to India is a roadmap approach which enables organizations to discuss and organize the ‘India option’ in a learned manner.

The book opens with an explanation of offshoring, industrialization, and the role India plays in this context; it considers offshoring as a lifecycle and explores how it can help to achieve a company’s business and IT priorities.

This requires adopting a stringent construct of measures to improve the offshore link.
