I have seen multiple examples of outsourced failure, yet that didn't persuade Megacorp from continuing to expand outsourcing.

+1

Few IT folks are going to be working for Apple build operating systems. It's a different skill set.

No, because there looking at only a part of the cost of development. Normally a non IS/IT person that only sees partial costs is the sponser.

My former Megacorp has outsourced to three different countries. Each experienced the same failures. They blamed it on the "culture" of the first two. I don't know what the third failure will be blamed on.

They have much bigger problems ahead due to rifs, an aging workforce and technology . Surprise, employees vote with their feet. The folks that were FI have left(I've helped 5-6 see how they could, and much help from this forum), a bunch of remaining talented development people are waiting for packages. Fear of rifs has left except for the newly graduated. Mega appears to be unable to recruit as word on the street is "don't stay there".
