Question Watch out India, Russia is competing with you in IT: Forbes

New York, Dec. 27: Russia is slowly competing with India as market for outsourcing software development by the American companies, an economic magazine said.
India is the reigning king of software outsourcing but its advantage is beginning to erode, Forbes International says in an article entitled, 'Watch out, India, Russia wants to be a part of your software outsourcing business'.

But Russians, it adds, don't expect to take big bites out of India's outsourcing revenues anytime soon. “For now, they are happy to nibble at the edges. But Russia has its own shining future ahead of it,” a co-manager at Intel's Nizhni Novgorod software lab Alexei Odinokov was quoted as saying.

An Indian programmer, Forbes says, earns on an average $7,000-8,000 a year, the same as Moscow techs tend to earn.

But the same level of talent can be purchased in Russia's outlying areas for about $3000-4000, Forbes stresses.

“And the heavily populated areas of Russia are much closer to the west than India is, making it easier to do business,” it says.

But the recruitment process is weak in Russia and to solve that problem, large multinationals have set up their own operations on the ground, typically headed by Russian and western management specialists, the magazine says.

QUESTION..

IS RUSSIA A THREAT TO INDIA's IT LEAD ?

Post I have happened to work with a Russian

I have happened to work with 3 Russians in a small web server tuning and website overhaul project that I did for 6 weeks.

The main problem these guys face is ENGLISH! They are good at programming and their mathematical skills are at par with us.

Fortunately we have an edge over them as we can easily communciate in English. Even our vernacular medium students are better off in English that the Russians. This does not apply to all Russians. There are some Russians who are very enterprising and learn the language quite well.

You will find Russian programmers at a much cheaper rate in the USA, even in Bay Area.

One can say that Russians are at a stage what Indian programmers were in the USA in the early 80's. One day we will have three people here Indians and Chinese are already here and the third will be Russians.
