Infosys - Infosys Technologies to Manage Microsoft's Internal IT Services | Newsroom


Gosh, talk about clustering services...

This agreement provides Infosys with a unique opportunity to partner with Microsoft IT and gain deep and early expertise in the implementation and management of the latest Microsoft technologies, and thus enhancing Infosys capabilities to help other customers leverage Microsoft's innovation and adopt these technologies.


So is that an elaborate way of saying "on the job training?"

Why would MS outsource this? Kind of smacks of not eating ones own
dogfood. I would think that if you want to know what your customers
pains are, you should live through them yourselves. By outsourcing
this, you're insulating yourself from that problem layer...

They found out it was too much a pain in $%$ @#!/ to manage.
Guess they should've used Netware.

I think its a way of saying, "Your gonna help us show these guys how it all
works and then can you. Have a nice day."

Cheaper to have India support it than US/Canada/UK employees.

And we are supposed to wonder why there are now 8 million unemployed
in the US....chalk up another 50k or so once this is complete. Eventually
we'll all be making 20k a year living in 1 room apartments and selling
burgers. Eventually companies will leave the US entirely. There won't be any
justification for CEO's and middle managers to be located here either. The
transition will then be complete. It's the kids that are going to pay the
price for all the greed we are witnessing when they have no opportunities
for advancement.

Well kids are paying for it, unfortunately it's kids in Chinese
factories making MS mice.

Yep. That's the flip side of this rather nasty trend.
Don't forget your grandma's that worked in those sweatshops also
so you could get ahead. Grandma's dream is slowly dying.
