Chance for Africa: The coming death of Indian outsourcing

Forbes wirtes today about the rising salaries of Indian programmers under the title „The Coming Death of Indian Outsourcing“:

However, the reality is that wages are rising in India. The cost advantage for offshoring to India used to be at least 1:6. Today, it is at best 1:3. Attrition is scary.

And the resume about this fact for the Forbes editors?

Jobs that are low value-added and easily automatable should and will disappear over the next decade.

The software as a service (SaaS) megatrend in technology also plays against India, they said. But mainly, in the terms of payment – the times plays for Africa.
