The Top Ten Cities for Outsourcing in India

India has 35 major cities. Not all of them are good offshore outsourcing hubs.

In the recent past, several studies have been carried out to identify the best or most attractive cities in India. Gartner Inc, National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM) and KPMG, neoIT, Mercer, A T Kearney, Merrill Lynch and several others have carried out city studies for a wide range of objectives.

Important parameters that were considered when developing the rankings in these studies include:
* Availability of Infrastructure (Power, Transport, Telecommunication, Housing)
* Cost of Living * Real Estate Costs
* Availability of Skilled Manpower
* Attrition Rates
* Quality of Living
* Political Climate
* Educational Institutions

Urban infrastructure in India is not the best in the world. Indian cities are facing overpopulation, indiscriminate growth and shortage of urban services like public transportation, water supply and sanitation. It is important to point out that the 2006 World-wide Quality of Living Survey by Mercer for 350 global cities has the top Indian cities Mumbai and Delhi ranked at 150th place. Not impressive at all. On the networking front, India ranks 40th out of 115 countries with the network readiness index of 0.23.

Despite the constrains imposed by the infrastructure or lack thereof, availability of skilled manpower and the low cost advantage continues to drive investment into urban India.

An analysis of city rankings by different surveys and study of recent outsourcing trends reveals that the top 10 outsourcing destinations in India are:

1. Chennai was the poor cousin of Bangalore and Hyderabad during the initial years of the IT boom in India. Today it is the lead outsourcing destination due to the low cost advantage, improving infrastructure, international connectivity, availability of land, skilled manpower and lower attrition rates compared to Bangalore and Hyderabad.

2. Hyderabad continues to woo investors by focusing on improving its urban infrastructure. The Governments, both past and present, have been very clear in their focus and support to the IT industry. The city has been among the most favored destinations due to the infrastructural improvements and the planned growth phased in by the governments in the twin cities.

3. Bangalore is the technology hub of India. It is increasingly becoming a global melting pot of cultures. The original garden and pub city of India has a comfortable climate compared to the other Indian cities that are happening in terms of outsourcing. However, the city’s infrastructure is inadequate to meet the demands of the exploding population. There is a growing feeling that other cities will overtake Bangalore if it continues to suffer due to political bickering, skyrocketing real estate prices and poor urban planning. According to a recent survey, it still ranks as the top city for living, earning and investing.

4. National Capital Region (NCR) includes Delhi and its surrounding suburbs. Delhi is expensive and not as popular for outsourcing. It is the suburbs, Gurgaon and Noida that have become important outsourcing destinations due to their proximity to the capital. They continue to be a major draw due to improving transport connectivity with Delhi, good international linkage and availability of skilled manpower.

5. Pune is Maharastra’s response to Bangalore. Its proximity to India’s financial capital, Mumbai and availability of trained manpower has led to the development of a thriving hi-tech outsourcing industry in this erstwhile retirement and education haven. Apart from other infrastructure components, the city is focusing on township projects to improve housing facilities.

6. Chandigarh and Mohali are twin cities. Chandigarh is one of the few planned and good cities of India. Mohali is its twin. Together, they have the space as well as the intellectual and financial capability to become India’s best outsourcing destinations. It does not yet have an international airport, but is well connected to New Delhi by road and rail.

7. Kolkata, the capital city of the state of West Bengal is high in intellect and has an advantage in terms of low costs. However, the city is famous for its traffic snarls and trade union shut downs. The current state government under chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee is making the right noises to encourage investors. Early indications are that it may actually emerge as a good outsourcing destination.

8. Mysore is one of India’s smaller cities, which have joined the outsourcing bandwagon. Its proximity to Bangalore and presence of companies like Infosys and Wipro has helped the cause. It is emerging as a preferred choice over Bangalore as India’s silicon city is now congested, expensive and has higher than average attrition rates.

9. Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala is well known for some of the leading science & technology research organizations in India. The city has the infrastructure and skilled workforce to attract IT investments. It is early days yet and remains to be seen whether Thiruvananthapuram can woo investors away from Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai.

10. Coimbatore is the emerging engineering outsourcing hub located in the state of Tamil Nadu. The government of Tamil Nadu is keen on developing Coimbatore as a major IT destination in the state. Coimbatore’s strength is its rich engineering tradition and young graduating engineers to meet the manpower demands of the growing industry.

20 Of The Best Cities In The World For Telecommuting

With mobile broadband and Wi-Fi hot spots becoming increasingly ubiquitous, it is possible for people to work from home in almost every city in the world. So why is it that solo entrepreneurs and telecommuting employees often opt to live in some of the most expensive cities in the nation? Perhaps it is because inexpensive mortgages are not the only thing drawing mobile employees to live in specific areas.

Cost of living is just one factor in the big picture of how people choose where to live. Other factors include job opportunities, entertainment options, access to cultural activities and the quality of life in the city. Work-at-home techies may be drawn to cities where rents are cheap but they may also weigh their decision against the availability of tech expos in the city, the number of Internet cafes in the area and the general community support for telecommuting individuals.

With those factors in mind, the mobile employee may want to look at the following cities which are ranked as the best cities in which to be an at-home, tech-using employee. Some are better for the freelancer, others for the telecommuter and still others for the solo entrepreneur who runs a virtual start-up. All of them are good spots for the person who wants his work environment to be limited only by his wireless connection and not by the flimsy walls of a cubicle.

San Francisco, California

It’s one of the most expensive cities in the nation but that doesn’t deter people from wanting to live here and work from home. It’s an all-around terrific city for people at any level of telecommuting.

Individuals running their own virtual start-ups will find it easy to get connected and maintain that low overhead. People who want to work for established businesses but telecommute from home need look no further than big businesses like Second Life or temp services that place people in virtual assistant jobs. The attitude here is completely open to people who work from home, the public transit is developing to allow wireless connections during commutes and the city is home to numerous expos including Web 2.0 and MacWorld Expo. The only drawback is the price that you’ll pay to live here but many say it’s worth it.

Austin, Texas

People who are seeking to live in a techie hot spot that isn’t too expensive will find that the developing tech industry in Austin, Texas is a great place to find a job. A large number of tech start-ups have been successful in this area. It’s also a leading area for business in general so it’s a particularly good place for the work-at-home techie entrepreneur who wants to run a business without setting up a physical office space.

Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina

This part of the United States has grown considerably in the areas of information technology and software development. The at-home employee who wants to work as a freelancer in software development will find that this is a good place to make some connections while still working from home. The climate is moderate, home prices are fair and the low crime rate makes it a place that’s safe for families.

Vancouver, Canada

If you want to make a move to Canada, you might want to think about heading to the West Coast city of Vancouver. One of the largest cities in the state, it also happens to be one of the most progressive. It’s involved in eco-friendly efforts to ‘green‘ its urban area and it’s highly supportive of telecommuting as part of that effort. It’s also just a beautiful city with a lot of opportunities to enjoy yourself when you’re not hard at work.

Seattle, Washington

This Northwestern United States city is a terrific happy medium for the work-at-home employee who can’t move all the way north to Vancouver and doesn’t want to head south towards San Francisco. It’s an expensive city but not as pricey as California cities and it offers all of the tech opportunities that you need to really enjoy life as a tech fiend. It’s also one of the healthiest cities in the United States.

Copenhagen, Denmark

This was recently named one of the happiest cities in the entire world. For the work-at-home employee who seeks to be happy, that’s a big benefit. It isn’t easy for residents of other countries to find work-at-home jobs here but the individual who has an online job elsewhere can complete that job from Copenhagen and enjoy a great daily life. It’s also one of the cheapest international cities to live in so you won’t even pay much to be happy here.

Phoenix, Arizona

This city has been growing in popularity over the past several years. A lot of money has been invested to grow business in this area and it’s the home of a number of huge tech conferences each year. It’s also got a great leisure side with a strong resort and golf community so you can earn good money while working and then go play hard after you’re done at work. The best work-at-home situation here is to find a business which needs tech help that you can do from your home office.

Seoul, South Korea

If you’re looking to really go international with a work-at-home job move then you might want to look at Seoul. This city has the best >broadband penetration in the world. There are also numerous companies here that you can try to get a job with, primarily in the wireless industry. There are also tons of Internet cafes so you can easily get to know other people in the community after you make your move.

Syracuse, New York

People who want to live in an inexpensive place and yet be close to a major city will find that upstate New York offers the right balance of opportunities. In Syracuse, you can easily purchase a single-family home for under $100,000. Despite this, you’ll be just hours from all of the employment and entertainment opportunities of New York City. It’s a win-win situation.

Anchorage, Alaska

If you really want to get away from the world and enjoy a terrific home in a beautiful part of the world then Anchorage is a great spot. It’s an urban city that will have what you need in terms of a tech connection. However, it’s a remote area compared to the rest of the world and will give you lots of peace and quiet. You can live cheaply here so you don’t even have to work full-time. The computer can rest while you go adventuring in the snow.

Atlanta, Georgia

This city is considered the most wired city in the United States. That makes it a great place for the individual who needs to be wired all day in order to work. It’s also a great city because it’s fairly inexpensive to live there but it offers a lot of jobs in the tech industry. What that means is that you can earn a good income here and yet not pay a lot in terms of cost of living.

Taipei, Taiwan

This city was one of the first to start dealing with its traffic congestion by encouraging employees to telecommute. With a goal of becoming the world’s first cyber-city, Taipei has gone a long way towards making it really easy to get a wireless connection here. You’ll be able to enjoy a great global experience and keep your online job.

Cordoba, Argentina

If you’re looking to make a move to South America then this is the city that you’ll want to keep your eye on. It’s a terrific city that seamlessly blends a culturally rich history with a modern technological approach to industry. It’s the center of the country’s technology and home to extensive research in both satellite technology and various sciences. It’s a safe city and one where it’s fairly easy to stay wired so you can work.

Barcelona, Spain

If you happen to be a single person who is in need of both a partner and a work-at-home job, your best international bet is to head to Barcelona. Once named one of the best cities for singles, it’s a place that offers a lot of romance. Even if you don’t end up finding a significant other, all of that romance is sure to inspire your creative side. At least that’ll be good for your online work!

Bangalore, India

It’s a beautiful city that is very inexpensive and yet it’s easy to find a wireless connection. Whether you want to work from your mobile phone or lug a laptop to an Internet cafe, this city is going to be a place that will keep you busy.

Santa Fe, New Mexico

One of the areas of the tech industry that is going to grow considerably in the upcoming years is green technology. Santa Fe is a city that’s already looking towards making developments in this area which is going to make it a great place for green telecommuting techies before too much more time passes. It’s a fairly inexpensive place to buy a home so you might want to invest in a move now.

Mexico City, Mexico

As the most populated city in the entire world, Mexico City is definitely a big urban place. That means there are a lot of opportunities to meet people and have a good time here. It’s also an up-and-coming city in terms of wireless technology which means you can do some great business here. If Mexico is a place that appeals to you, this is the best city to choose.

Salt Lake City, Utah

This United States city was voted one of the best places to find a job last year and it remains number one on the list again this year. Because the jobs here are primarily in the tech industry, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find an employer who would be more than happy to let you work from home at least part time.

Colorado Springs, Colorado

One of the biggest problems plaguing work-at-home employees is that they get lazy. Because of that, it’s a good idea to move to a city that cares about fitness. Colorado City is ranked highest in the United States for fit cities. This can be a great benefit to the at-home employee who needs an extra push to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Stockholm, Sweden

This is the home of the headquarters of The Pirate Bay the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker. For those who don’t know, that means that there’s been a big push here to fight lawsuits against illegal filesharing. With that kind of precedent, it’s a great place for the techie who is interested in open source development of products and web services.
