2.0 Executive Summary
India, a relatively small country, with a relatively large population, is currently the hotspot for most IT related work. Jobs in the IT sector are multiplying every year with North American companies outsourcing their IT services to India. In this “globalization” game India is a key player because with a population of over a billion people and some of the most prestigious IT Universities in the world (IIT), finding a knowledge worker is a piece of cake. In the past decade India has driven the IT sector to new heights by connecting workstations with fiber optic cables. This attracted North American companies that saw enormous brain power in Indian workers who came in maximum abundance, worked 12 hours a day, 6 days a week and for 1/12th the salary of an American worker. As the shift started to take place, the Indian economy was poured with billions of dollars and millions of jobs. Although India clearly benefited from this, some people in India are unhappy with the globalization that is taking place. The biggest problem India has faced during this process is believed to be “loss of culture in the younger generation”. The future of India currently seems to be bright, with more multinational companies coming into India and bringing in capital, India will show a great deal of progress in its economy.
