U.S. IT pros continue to see outsourcing hurting the IT profession, but the pain isn't as acute as back in 2004, a time when many companies shifted swathes of development and app support work to India and other lower-cost countries. Today in the U.S., 60% of staff and 53% of managers believe there are fewer IT jobs available because of outsourcing. In 2004, it was 75% of all IT pros. Sixty-one percent said it created lower morale back then, compared with around half today. U.S. IT pros remain highly skeptical that outsourcing lets the remaining IT pros work on more innovative projects--an idea that's often cited by IT execs who initiate outsourcing. Just 13% believed that in 2004, and only 17% of staff and 23% of managers believe it today.
