Book Excerpts

Dinesh C. Sharma
HarperCollins Publishers, India
By the mid-1980s, word had spread that India had a good talent pool and it came much cheaper. Besides mainframe and minicomputer vendors who were using Indian software engineers extensively, partners American OEM software vendors too began working with Indian firms to get products developed cheaply for thier markets. Another new segment opened up when a large software customer decided to set up a fully-owned subsidiary to develop software for internal use. This was CitiBank, which had worked with several Indian software firms earlier. Apparently, the bank had been toying with the idea of setting up a software wing since 1979 but did not due to the difficult political and economic environment. (54) The liberal policy measures unveiled post-1980 gave an impetus to the move.
