Here’s an issue for readers to weigh in on: Does SaaS Threaten Indian Outsourcing?
My thought: Outsourcers make a lot of money from installing, integrating and maintaining big, cumbersome software systems from SAP and Oracle. SaaS streamlines all this, and except for a few large companies, as the SaaS wave washes over the IT firmament of the world, this kind of complex integration and maintenance projects may disappear (at least that’s the promise of the SaaS proponents), taking with it large chunks of revenue sources from the Infosys, Wipro, Satyam, Accenture, IBM Global Services of the world.
