Custom software application to India is likely to grow, not only through the ongoing growth of natural Indian companies, but also foreign software companies are increasing their employment in India particularly in software services.
The Indian subsidiaries of multinationals play an important role in the development of India’s software capabilities, because they are more willing to undertake high value-added activities, such as software development, within their own subsidiary in India than they are to send the work to an Indian independent firm.
China’s software and services industry does not currently have a major impact on the world economy. The hardware industry is well established in China, and in the future it may drive the software industry to a focus on embedded software.
Unlike India, where the multinationals are focused mainly on serving the world market, in China multinationals are more focused on positioning themselves to serve the enormous, emerging domestic Chinese market.
Japan has the second largest software and services industry in the world, after the United States; and it is the fastest growing industry in Japan. Japan makes games software and custom software development for the world market and packaged software for its domestic market.
There are three typical patterns of Japanese offshoring. Most commonly, a Japanese firm will identify a need for custom software, contract with a Japanese IT company to provide the software, and the IT Company will in turn contract with a Japanese subsidiary of a Chinese firm to do the programming work.
A second approach that is more recent is for Japanese firms to invest in China to form wholly owned supplementary or joint ventures with Chinese firms.
The European Union represents the second largest market in the world for software and IT services, after the United States. There are many differences, however, from country to country, and the European Union cannot be viewed as a unified, homogeneous market.
About two-thirds of the work offshored from Europe is offshored by the United Kingdom. Continental European firms continue to lag UK firms in sending software work across their borders. The Germanic and Nordic nations have only recently begun to build offshore software and software service delivery capabilities, but firms with global practices such as SAP, Siemens, and others are moving rapidly to build their offshore capabilities in Eastern Europe, China, and India.
