This is in no way a jest or even a partial joke. Do the cost benefit analysis check on your own and you’ll already find that the third world variety has the most affordable form of labor. And though the field of IT professions comes under the umbrella of technical killed workers, existing in a saturated but flowing market means that their labor costs also decrease because of the rampant competition.
But why IT? Because of the internet boom of course. The almost surreal spread of the internet has meant better growth for IT not only as a profession but as an entire commodity. Think of it, you might hear about all sorts of living frailties in the third world countries but the one thing the people share there as well is that almost every home has an optimized PC ready to run through with all the internet content. Does that sound picturesque enough to have a suddenly booming IT market? Well there’s more to it.
Now these third world countries have their own conditions of infrastructure around education. Think of it in this respect when the majority of your under 30 population is exposed to the Internet with that much prolific interest, they turn to the Internet to make to turn to the brighter aspects of profession. That is completely perfect given how educating one self is never about being restricted to any one form of decorum or degree. Fast forward and those professionals have kicked started themselves to be a real force in the market, buying and selling their services as at will. That translates itself into a self serving market t for not only the local businesses but for the enterprises abroad as well.
However this side of the IT profession has a lot more to offer than just low costs. It is considered as one of the most diverse and the most innovative IT market in the globe for a reason. Hence, they are able to diffuse its own amount of branding and techniques at will and often times combining their own cultural seams to put out jaw dropping software apps. This particularly shows in the open source environments of Web development and mobile application development. And again this showcases how you do not need a degree to thrive as a professional.
What does this mean in the long run though? It means that the IT services will clutter up more thanks to the propagation of the Open Source however to the really enigmatic of enterprises, the top quality of the IT services will get delivered too. As far as the professionals themselves are concerned, they are already aware of the race they are drawn up in. Churning out tool after tool, technique after technique to out do one another in tech related fields has brought up healthy competition in the third world, even if it has compromised the security a bit. The best thing to take from all this is the contribution that these professionals make to technology and IT itself in large, by the by increasing the productivity of various businesses locally and on the global scale.
