IT reshoring, meaning when companies decide to bring back IT operations (mostly outsourced to India) in-house, is a growing trend driven by developed countries’ governments, and companies that experienced negative outcomes from offshore outsourcing.

Offshore outsourcing challenges

Cultural gap, language problems, wage inflation, turnover, many reasons can sometimes happen to make an offshore outsourcing operation a less positive financial picture than expected.
Other reasons for disapointing IT outsourcing projects may also lie in the provider and the client’s own failures. There are many decisions to make and issues to address when making the move. Because successfull remote project management is very demanding from both sides and requires a lot of discipline and preparation to avoid problems such as lack of transparency and communication, especially in a long-distance context.

The european reshoring alternative

Before considering relocating failed outsourced IT operations back in-house and risking the consequences of a loss of flexibility, lack of qualified workers or skyrocketing payroll, business managers should look ahead to nearshore alternatives, either in Eastern Europe or even in their homeland (domestic sub-contracting in Western Europe or North America). It is all about finding the best balance between cost, quality, innovation ability, time-to-market and global competitiveness.
