This Series is moderated by John Hession, Partner of Testa, Hurwitz & Thibeault, LLP and is intended for both lawyers and non-lawyers alike.
In this weak macroeconomic environment, driven by chastened revenue opportunities and internal pressures for cost containment, companies are confronted by significant business challenges to make, buy, lease or build. As a consequence, to control costs, enterprises are actively seeking external partners to handle business functions previously handled internally, or "outsourcing." Furthermore, many software companies, in an effort to cut the burn rate and constrain development expenses, are also seeking offshore contractors to deliver elemental software coding.
Come hear a panel of experts, both business and legal, discuss the risks, challenges and opportunities associated with these unique business strategies, outsourcing and offshore development.
