India is emerging as a supplier of highly technical brainpower.Silicon Valley goes east-way east.
India has been exporting computer software for years, but what's new
is the extent to which American businesses have begun entrusting
critical, leading-edge software development to Indian programmers. Past
present Infosys clients include such marquee American names as Visa,
Xerox, General Electric, Reebok, and AT&T.
Engineers born and often trained in India, where English is the
principal language of higher education, have for years immigrated to
the U.S. to staff the research and development labs of outfits ranging
from Intel and AT&T to tiny startups. But engineers who stayed behind
India were hampered from acquiring skills by a lack of knowledge and
technology, a result of India's stifling bureaucracy.
