Video debate: Offshoring in 2012 and beyond

June 2012

This video debate looks at whether there will be a ‘hollowing out’ of UK IT staff as offshoring continues; whether specialisms could be lost and if the UK needs to change its attitude in the era of ‘follow the sun’ working. Also covered are approaches to specifying skill levels in tendering and a discussion of what the Institute’s role should be.

Participating were Elizabeth Sparrow, BCS past President; John Milner, a freelance consultant previously of Cambridge University; Karim Hyatt an interim CIO involved in software products; and Gary Nuttall, a business intelligence expert. Brian Runciman MBCS hosted.
