    Default Is outsourcing the cause of RBS debacle?

    BBC News - Is outsourcing the cause of RBS debacle?

    Comment #570 (by John):

    Hopefully this will act as a wake up call to directors who see IT as an overhead, a chance to justify huge bonuses cutting costs - replacing experienced developers with cheap coders based in India.

    Sadly it wont.The UK was a world leaders in IT, that legacy has been squandered by greedy directors, and Labour/Tories have done nothing to stop it.

    We should offshore the directors instead.

    I dont think its just directors. I fell that contractors have been under attack since 1997. Politicians have alot to answer for with IR35.

    I am personally fed up with Bobs in investment banking, they are a pain to deal with, hard to understand, some of them are very political and will take your job given the opportunity. Don't people understand that if you outsource the I.T. to Bob, Bob can make higher demands on your business in the long run.

    Also their I.T. design proposals are a joke and I refuse to waste my time reviewing them.

    This I.T. lark is seriously peeving me off, I'm going to try and move myself into a position of some power to try and weed out this non-sense.

    This is the first time I've worked with offshored resource but I personally haven't seen any problems yet. We are only three weeks into the build, but so far my offshore dev team has been really enthusiastic and keen to learn. Surely technology is technology whether you are sitting at a desk in Manchester or Chennai!
