Good news for the Pakistan tech sector
Gartner, which never really had Pakistan on its radar, has in a recent report put Pakistan amongst First Category countries for outsourced services. Apparently cost arbitrage and competitive telecom costs as well improved infrastructure have been cited as the reasons for this.
The upcoming P@SHA study will however provide subsantial reasons and statistics relating to growth, professionalism, maturity, employment. The study, which has been conducted by Athar Osama, a PhD from the Rand Policy Institute, is a 5-6 month effort to start an annual initiative to document the Pakistan IT and ITES industry. It widely documents through a rigorous process of online surveys, phone surveys as well one-to-one conversations, where the Pakistan industry is at, how it has grown in the past 3 years as well as projections for the future. We will finally have hard facts to deal with instead of gut feel and vague optimistic forecasts. Watch out for it!
