Beyond Low-Cost Service
Offshore providers prove they have what it takes to become technology vendors
Meanwhile, earlier this month, Wipro Technologies said it will license an application it wrote for connecting digital devices to Wind River Systems Inc., a maker of embedded software for digital TVs and set-top boxes. Wind River is licensing Wipro's USB 2.0 host stack under a broader $240 million services agreement. "Offshore firms are no longer interested in simply being low-level service providers," says Technology Business Research analyst Humberto Andrade. "They have the skills, experience, and talent to play in the broader IT market, and we expect to see more of them moving in that direction."
