Comment on Getting Indian corporates interested in Intranet and Internet Weblogs by RS

You are welcome. It would be interesting to see how the whole thing works out. Indian companies are very stingy when it comes to implementing something that does not have cash flows in short term. Look at the R&D expenditure of most of the Indian companies (i think on an average it will be less than 1% of their total sales). So your job becomes even more challenging considering all these things. Good luck.

Rajeev – thanks for the share – these are so useful – will incorporate them in the proposal. I loved your after-thoughts too … on meeting customer needs and on ‘usability’ of software.

yes. telephone is much better mode of commnication than email. Managing emails is a big problem and a drain on productivity. It sucks.

Yeah I agree with you on that. What will happen is that Indian companies will have to cut their profit margins, which at present are very high or share their profits with the outsourcer. My point of view is that time has not yet come to write-off the outsourcing business model.

Besides the point but I can safely mention here that some of the Indian companies have also started quoting below $10 per hour. Can anyone beat that?

And congratulations to you on getting a summer job.

Hi Rajeev,
The Economist data is correct. We just have to remember that US companies don’t directly pay Indian programmers and do that through the Infosys’ and Wipro’s, which consume a huge amount of the billing as profits, letting percolate only a li’l figure as salary.
As I know, Infosys bills about 25$ for a developer. ML’s and PM’s are charged at $40 or above. Weighted average would result in the economist figure.
