Thread regarding DXC Technology layoffs

They are forgetting about offshoring disadvantages

How can I respect leadership whose only solution for almost everything is offshoring? I can hardly respect such leadership. In addition, they seem unaware that offshoring also has its disadvantages or are they totally ignoring them?

To who ever said "Outsourcing as a business is so last century." What do you think so called Cloud is? It's Outsourcing your computer builds, running your remote DC. Companies don't want to care about IT, they want to pay someone else to care and they will care about their products and services!

Cloud is Outsourcing!

Hey @1gpk+1gHo1OWe I'm neither entitled nor have I "quit" DXC. In fact I am an "expensive" (in global terms) and experienced IT professional whose time and advice clients are prepared to pay DXC for. In fact DXC makes >100% mark up on my salary, I more than pay my way, do you?

You entirely missed the point of the post, which says something about your intellectual capacity. Clients will pay a premium for experience and innovation. If DXC wants to be playing in the dying outsourcing business on a "low cost" body shop basis good luck. Its a race to the bottom. My view is DXC mgmt are lost, incompetent (many) and/or cynically milking the company while they can. Why should any of us prop them up? I'm on the sidelines watching these management buffoons without IT experience flounder, but I'm doing it morally, ethically and professionally

BTW those clients I spoke of know DXC isn't providing the skills and I am. There are others like me and we're getting tired of watching the kleptocrats get the rewards. I stay at DXC for the entertainment, the fact that people like you get upset is funny and I can't wait to see what happens next. You need to take a chill pill and grow up.

@1qfx+1gHo1OWe. -.... Sure is an entitled individual (like a lots in dxc), making tons of money and located in AMS or EMEA or ANZ where labor costs are high - typical problem of dxc. People have quit (doing real work) and are still here. Time for culling.

"Problem is half the guys in dxc are still in the last century and don't understand the reality of business. The new leadership understands this and is correcting past issues."

The problem is that Outsourcing as a business is so last century. Its dying and trying to compete with Indian pure plays on a price basis alone is just a race to the bottom. If correcting the issues of the past is continuing to put butts on seats, only cheaper, there is not much understanding of where the industry is going from the "new leadership".

People are sitting on the sidelines trying to work out what game dxc is playing. Now if only there was an umpirewho could call foul.

When you are competing against Indian pure play for pricing in every deal, you have to bring in offshore resources to have a price to win - this is the basics of outsourcing. Problem is half the guys in dxc are still in the last century and don't understand the reality of business. The new leadership understands this and is correcting past issues. Either you are with the company or you are not - you cannot just be in the sidelines and keep complaining. Now get to work.
