ComputerWeekly: Research firm Gartner has released its annual list of the top 30 countries for IT offshoring. As in years past, India claims the top place on the list, followed by China. Five countries--Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Colombia, Mauritius and Peru--made the list for the first time.
"In the past 12 months, Gartner has seen considerable efforts from many countries to consolidate or grow their positions as leading locations for offshore services. Emerging nations have placed significant emphasis on IT and business process services providing a vehicle for their economic growth, as many potential trading partners are moving from recession to tentative growth," said Gartner.
