Google stands out to be the hotshot cost-effective outsourcer of software services till today. This very stand alone feature of Google will help to bring lucrative and prestigious clients for Indian IT industry.
A few years back the same scenario happened when Apple outsourced a big chunk of their work to Indian IT Company i.e. Infosys and Wipro. Now it’s the turn for Google to do so and will able to get more like from the IT industry.
Google has already revamped their strategies regarding outsourcing and handed over many projects to many multinational IT giants such as Cognizant, IBM and Accenture.
Among Fortune 500 Company, Google holds a significant position and one of the companies who spends thousands of Dollars annually on Information Technology.
From long time, software maintenance and development project were maintained by Genpact and Infosys who are the third-party technology vendors, for California based Google, Mountain View.
Google has adopted a third new system of outsourcing strategy where all the non-core business parts like Software Development, Maintenance and IT Infrastructure management are outsourced to IT firms.
“For Google the outsourcing matter is not new because they generally outsource petty amount of work to third-party service providers. Now to gain more profit, Google is outsourcing non-core part of the business which is cost –effective too” said by a US based executive of a MNC IT service firm, which manages software projects for Google.
This paradigm shift in strategy of Google will bring good news for the homegrown software exporters like TCS and Infosys whose top executives will get a chance to negotiate with the parasol outsourcing company. Recently, Infosys managed to get some IT projects for Google.
Technology firm Cognizant and Google has declined to comment for the particular news piece.
The strategy undertaken by Google is similar to the strategy used by Apple for outsourcing software development and maintenance to Indian IT service company like Infosys and Wipro. In fact, Infosys earns over $100 million annually from Cupetino, a California based firm and states Apple as a big strategic firm.
