IBM and the other Indian companies

Excellent article about IBM and the company’s foray into India – echoes the sentiments I heard from outsourcers when I was there. IBM and Accenture legitimizes the Indian outsourcers, most importantly in the eyes of the local politicians and the public, and legitimizes their strategy to move to higher-level work, in the process improving profits and finding believable career paths for their engineers, who will want to break out of SAP fiddling and support calls at some point.
