Changing faces of Outsourcing from Enterprises to Individual Developer

Imagine your work; a software module, assigned to you with a timeline of 1.5 weeks. And you tell your boss – that you are telecommuting. As you need to concentrate and all for this piece of work. Instead of working yourself, you delegate it to a software developer in India or Philippines or China. And check on and off with the progress and complete your task with in a week including testing. Sure, you are on your way to somewhere. Your boss is happy and you are happy and the software developer getting pennies for his work is happy as well.

An interesting feature, which somehow wasn’t completely unforeseen – but does how far can one go. Sky is the limit. A recent story; Shane Schick brings about some interesting points about this and the near shore options as well.
