1 in 4 IT Jobs Going Offshore, Says Gartner; One Major "Offshoring Failure" in 2004 Predicted
1 in 4 IT Jobs Going Offshore, Says Gartner; One Major "Offshoring Failure" in 2004 Predicted

  • Read "Offshoring Offers Opportunities for U.S. IT Troubleshooters"
  • Read "Offshore Outsourcing: Magic Bullet or Dirty Word?"

    Roger Cox, managing VP at Gartner, has been telling that a quarter of traditional IT jobs in Western countries will move to offshore locations such as India by 2010.

    The global trend toward "offshoring," in other words, continues to boom in Europe - as elsewhere.

    According to the latest figures from Gartner, outsourcing as a whole is outstripping the IT services market in Europe, growing by 3.1% in 2004 and predicted to rise to 8% by 2007 - "with the offshore element tipped to grow hugely," adds Cox.

    Gartner predicts almost a third of leading European businesses will include an offshore element in their IT plans by 2005.

    According to, Cox said "The alarming nature of that headline '1 in 4' figure masks the true story."

    "That 25% is over a long period of time," Cox points out. "And if we turn back to a period of growth then you'll find those jobs could go entirely into growth."

    Gartner also claims, according to the report, that 2004 will see the first major offshoring failure that will lead to a company taking its operations back onshore. Here's how's Andy McCue reports what Cox had to say about this:

    Cox said this won't necessarily reflect the bigger picture and has more to do with the politics of offshoring, which will see the backlash against white collar job loss continue during the year.

    "Because it is being hyped up, it has become very political, so any failure will be more visible," he said.

    Cox said offshoring has already proved itself as a mainstream IT business decision but warned against companies looking to use the model to make quick cost savings.

    "The first thing is to get that business alignment right," he said. "If companies are only looking at price and levels of service, they are going to drive it off the rails."

    McCue adds a note about the geography of offshoring: "In terms of favoured offshore locations, India still dominates, with China and Russia trying to break through as genuine alternatives for European companies. Gartner also predicts that the new countries joining the European Union in May will become popular for 'nearshore' outsourcing of some operations, although not on the sort of scale that will pose a threat to India."

    Reader Feedback: Page 1 of 5

    Oh, so now you and Paddy can''t just be honest about insults? First of all, yeah thats how I spell labour and he can take it how he wants. What was his grandfather making bombs? People dont just "get killed" for no reason and I''m not ignorant of rebel history.
    And no, I''m not Indian, but what has that got to do with anything, Two Dog? I have nothing against native americans, they''ll be out of jobs just like the rest of us.


    I think some of these comments may be little subtle for you.
    Padriac was using what we call "irony" - that you would use the correct English spelling "labour", rather than the bastardised American "labor".

    And of course I have no idea what your ancestory is, but I would bet that it is NOT Native American. This we call "sarcasm". Ask someone what it means and then see if you can figure out what I was really saying.

    Rob Blaine, you really should read some history yourself, perhaps on the Irish union movement. Many were killed, including my grandfather, for trying to set up protections for the workers, who, until that point, had been treated like slaves. And I have no idea by what you mean by "and their not above using methods we would abhored."

    And you speak of a great leveling. Wait and see what you''ll get from this form of "benevolent" capitalism - it''ll make socialism pale in comparison.

    Rob, glad to hear that''s not an issue. In terms of unions, they have their place, but when they are inflexible and unwilling to compromise, they can certainly become a factor in a corporations willingness to move jobs overseas. Now, I said a factor, not THE reason, as corporate greed is the ultimate reason.

    Dan, If I''m British or not has nothing to do with this matter. I''ve known guys like Paddy in the past and beleive me, what they want is to destroy capitalism. They say their pro labour, but what they really want is socialism for the world - the great leveler affect. And their not above using methods we would abhored. Just look at history.

    Rob, you sound British to me(or of British decent), perhaps living in the states. Am I correct? If so, does this explain your disdain for the irish?

    Big Dog,
    My comment was directed to an irishman trying to correct my spelling as he is the foriegner here. Also, you have no idea what my ancestry is.

    Thank you Rob Blaine for your comments.
    By your qualification to decide who is a "foreigner", I realise that you are a member of a very exclusive club - Native American IT professionals.
    The loss of "white"-collar jobs to Indians must seem rather ironic to you.

    What people like jay_sdk and padriac really are for is radical socialism and Americans dont want any part of that. My dad was a steelworker who lost everything after 35 years of working and the unions did nothing to stop it. they were to busy getting rich themselves. And that''s what happened in those communist countries like Russia and China...the rich got everything though it was suposed to be for the workers. Maybe Bill is right and were getting to worried over nothing much. By the way, I don''t need a foreigner telling me how to spell.

    Whilst I agree with most of the readers'' concerns, I can''t help thinking back over the 25 years I have been a programmer and all the previous predictions of the end to my career.

    Twenty years go it was genuinely believed that software would soon be generated from the design documentation.

    Fifteen years ago, when packaged software started really making its mark, it was believed that there would be just a few companies hiring programmers to develop packages and all other programmers would have to look for some other vocation.

    Then there were the CASE tools and forward engineering products that were going to replace the need to manually develop software. And so the list goes on.

    Over the past 25 years I have heard many chicken littles telling me that my sky is falling. The latest chicken little may well be telling the truth of course, and there is no doubt that, one day, there will no longer be a requirement for software developers at all.

    However, I can''t believe, seeing all our users are so damned finnicky, that they will all of a sudden start to tolerate using software that has not been developed to suit their every whim and fancy - and try detailing these in a design spec to send overseas! The users who aren''t so finnicky already use packaged software anyway.

    I can''t say to anybody that the sky is not falling as one day it probably will. However, I don''t believe that day will come until we have the technology to develop systems that easily satisy our users - and that certainly isn''t now.

    We should definitely all prepare ourselves for massive rewrites and maybe someone could develop a mechanism by which user whims, subtleties and fancies can easily be captured and documented.

    Best wishes

    While estimates of the number of jobs moved to China run around 700,000, China lost 25 million manufacturing jobs. While a number of Indians gain salaries unheard of before, the recipient are mainly the educated priviliged and India''s poverty and illiteracy rates remain frighteningly Developing World. While after NAFTA thousands of factories/maquiladoras "blossomed" in Northern Mexico with abusive labor standards, after a decade these are moving abroad leaving social devastation in its wake. The move of IT jobs is nothing new but is a symptom of capitalist globalization. This "race to the bottom" inevitably leads to greater poverty and the concentration of wealth in the hands of a few at the cost of everybody and everything else, socially and environmentally.

    We need a re-direction, a correction against rampaging free-trade neo-liberal capitalism: a government and a people that doesn''t provide a sufficient counter-weight and works for social justice, leaves a brutal society where only the strong and priviliged survive and the weak and disenfranchised are trampled. Such a government can only be achieved once the middle class (or whatever remains of it) realizes that they have more in common with the working poor, than they have with the privileged they aspire to and identify with...

    To Rob Blaine,
    I don''t know why but you seem angry. Being angry is fine - but please don''t direct it at me personally. I am a naturalized citizen, and I love America. All I am saying is what will have to happen eventually is for all workers from all countries to unite and protect their common interests.

    Also, for an American, you have an interesting way of spelling "labor."

    Mr. Pepperdine,
    I dont'' think I said something insulting to Mr. Devlin - but I honestly dont know how a non-american CAN understand what were going thru. Plus, I just dont think unions solve all problems. They often are used by socialist leaning types who realy want to destroy capitalism. And thru history, the some Irish have been big in labour unions. I wonder Mr. Devlins motives is all.

    Glopez, I agree with your analysis - but there is an answer - world unions. This may take years to implement, and the hostility encountered will be great (as it was in the past) - but it is the only way to protect all workers. If we''re all to be treated as replaceable, expendable resources, we must band together to prevent it.

    I am an IT worker (software developer) who has been lucky enough find fairly stable work in the industry (even post dot bomb). Even though I enjoy software development temendously, the outsourcing trend has me thinking about changing careers altogether.

    Belows I have restated view points expressed by various posters along with some of my own.

    The problems of outsourcing computer programming jobs to forign nations stem from the following conditions:

    1.) All industries (aside from subsitence farming) are subject to globalization. The IT industry is the latest such industry to fall prey to this economic trend (it follows other industries such as textiles and automotive).

    2.) Corporations who wish to remain competitive within their own industries cannot ignore the pressures of globabalization.

    3.) Technology continues to facilitate globalization.

    4.) The leaders of the governments of industrialized nations facilitate globalization by creating pro globalization policies (NAFTA and other free trade agreements).

    5.) Globalization allows corporations to avoid hiring union labor to increase their margins. As long as coporations can find pools of non union labor, they will continue business as usual.

    6.) Computer programming is no longer as complex as it once was. There exist a plethora of tools, resources and frameworks that make the task of writing "very complex" applications quicker and easier. (IDEs create code from UML diagrams, easy to learn scripting languages like Perl and Cold Fusion).

    6.) Aside from anecdotal evidence to the contrary, software that is produced in foreign sweat shops is of the same quality as can be produced here in the US. (Microsoft aren''t exactly bug free)

    7.) Consumers of IT products have very little brand loyalty. We are all looking for the next best thing.

    Outsourcing of programming jobs to foreign nations will continue to increase. This will reduce the number of programming jobs in the US. There will be more competition for those jobs. Many former programmers will be displaced and will have to find work in other industries. The flood of programming talent in relation to the number of programming jobs will exert downward pressure on salaries and benefits for programmers.

    What can be done to reverse the trend:
    1.) Nothing really.
