<p>The ability to recruit and train top quality graduates from Indonesia’s specialized IT universities is a critical factor in the decision of many Australian companies to outsource software development to Bali headquartered Mitrais, according to vice president of software development, Mike Page.</p>
<p>He was commenting on the fact that Indonesia has risen a further step up the ladder of most attractive outsourcing destinations to enter the top five according to global management consulting firm, A.T. Kearney’s latest Global Services Location Index (GSLI).</p>
<p>“The ability to recruit top quality graduate software engineers and our internal training and competency assessment program, combines with a near shore location and cost advantages to underpin the growth in our Australian client base.</p>
<p>“Our current graduate intake completes its three month internal training course at the end of August. This is the 8th course we have run in the 3 years since the scheme was launched.”</p>
<p>“Our experience bears out what A.T. Kearney is saying about the growing importance of the quality of the labor pool,” Mike Page said.</p>
<p>While India and China retain the top three spots they have occupied since the inaugural GLSI in 2004, a fundamental shift in the index has taken place as central European countries have yielded ground to countries in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa.</p>
<p>Mr. Norbert Jorek, a partner with A.T. Kearney and managing director of its Global Business Policy Council said “ while cost remains a major driver in decisions about where to outsource, the quality of the labor pool is gaining importance as companies view the labor market through a global lens driven by talent shortages at home, particularly in higher, valued-added functions,”</p>
<p>The GLSI analyses and ranks the top 50 countries worldwide for locating outsourcing activities, including IT services and support. Each country’s score is composed of a weighted combination of relative scores on 43 measurements which are grouped into three categories: financial attractiveness, people and skills availability and business environment.</p>
<p>Indonesia overtook Brazil to rise to number five in the ranking of the latest survey.</p>
