Happy Birthday Jaipur!

Rajasthan Tourism Beat

Jaipur, the City of Victory, is chaotic and congested; though it still has a habit of tickling everyone pink. The city which once had been the capital of the royalty now is the capital city of Rajasthan.  Stunning hilltop forts and glorious palaces fit like footprints from a rich royal past, candy floss – bright turbans blaze a trail through brilliant bargain-filled bazaars, and fluttering saris catch the eye like butterflies.

Outsourcing: Need of the hour for the IT Industry


With the frequent changes in the Technology curve, a major concern to the ISV( Independent software vendors) and the OPD(offshore product development) companies in the world is to match the ‘Resource-Skill’ demand of the Industry.

Companies working in offshore world provide effective timings to the employees so they can manage the time-lap between different time-zones.

Off-shoring has been proven as a major reason of success for companies in every domain. They not only manage to reduce costs but also been able to optimize the productivity along with exploring and adding new future possibilities of business expansion.

Exploring to the new horizon is always an add-on benefit if capitalised efficiently. Offshore is no longer used to reduce costs but its gradually moving towards availability of most capable and well experienced skilled resources in the world.
