Avail Innovations | Offshore software development
Offshore development in the IT world is the
term most often used to describe the business of outsourcing
software programming and engineering services beyond national
boundaries. The most common justifications for offshore development
is cost avoidance. Low-level tasks such as coding and software
testing can be performed in less-developed countries at costs
as low as ten percent of domestic ones.
Software manufacturers seeking international
markets and needing to localize their products to specific
platforms, languages and cultural requirements often find
it most efficient to use offshore development resources in
or near their target markets.
The growing shortage of IT professionals,
especially in the most developed industrial countries, is
rapidly becoming the most important reason for offshore development.

by 2003 there will be a shortfall of some 1.4 million computer
programmers in the United States alone.
