    I wonder what made them think combining the worst management (EDS/HP) with the worst workers (cheap, poorly skilled Indian techs), would ever make a successful business.
    Because cheap, poorly skilled US and UK techs were the foundation of EDS / HP..

    Yep, the ownership by EDS / HP rather screwed their expansion options when everyone else was massively expanding.

    And Google say:

    Infosys revenue 1 Trillon Rupees
    Mphasis revenue 100 Billion Rupees

    Would have thought everyone knew what they were - it was the Indian partner for EDS / HP for years..

    Which UK Companies actually use their services/data? Should be named and shamed!
    From a clients point of view they can sometimes be better.

    They will bend over for the client and do the needful when UK agents might not.

    Absolutely tulip loads of UK companies use Indian outsourced services. Especially for development. There probably isn't a company in the FTSE-250 who don't. And I'd be surprised if any of the largest 5,000 companies don't or haven't.
    So what do you think you'll benefit by naming them?
    +1 - why do you think we tell anyone asking for advice to move up the skillset (from developer to architect) and to do customer facing roles that can't be done remotely (yes I know about Covid but think longer term).
