Friday, 27th May 2011
The discontent over IBM�s IT outsourcing market has left its management shocked and overwhelmed. The anti-IBM slogans are spreading rampantly in the IT industry since the National Agricultural Cooperative Federation incident. In fact, a number of firms who were planning to ink deals with IBM Korea are now rethinking or have canceled their plans to tie with IBM.
In the meantime, rivals are winning orders from disgruntled clients complaining of mishaps with IBM. Evidently, there is a modification of power in the industry as IBM takes a hit for its problems in IT.
With billions of dollars worth of contracts at stake for IBM, foreign and domestic IT outsourcing firms are eagerly awaiting to cash in on deals.
