"IDC believes that the offshore model is a good choice for clients to reduce costs and improve efficiency. With the economic recovery, offshore clients will increase their IT spending to support the business, so the software development market will continue to increase at a stable rate. At the same time, due to rich human resources, stable political environments, excellent infrastructure, the global buyers are taking China as an important offshore alternative. After years of efforts, the China local vendors now have the capacity to provide standard services and some high-end services for their clients." said Joan Mao, Senior Market Analyst, IDC China.
