Is the Off-shoring Trend Turning Around?

leave a comment »

Met a fellow Agilist in the gym this morning. He works for a major financial institute that recently carried out a round of cost cutting in IT. They chose to lay off off-shore, protecting on-shore software engineering resources.

I recently learned of a few other software/IT companies who followed a similar layoffs strategy. Is the off-shoring trend in software/IT starting to turn around?
