India is almost certain to have a major role as a center of software development is the ringing theme that I hear from multiple sources. Already companies like IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, and SAP, already tap Indian talent not just to crank out code but to help design and develop commercial offerings, not to leave out Google & Amazon. I am aware of several product companies planning to move part of engineering work to China in the next 1-2 years. Oracle recently announced the acquisition of iflex. Increasingly, Indian software enterprises want to put their own companies names on product labels, at home and abroad, by capitalizing on their country's highly educated and low-cost workforce to build and sell software for everything from back-office programs to customer-facing applications. It could have far-reaching consequences for software prices worldwide. India's IT-services industry, and their development teams bring with them the disciplined Six Sigma and CMM-I approaches to quality management and experience with Web services and hosted applications to the products they develop. It's a mind-set that fits well with the business world's slow march toward more services-oriented, Web-friendly IT architectures.
