I notice that Managing Offshore, the newish high-priced newsletter from CMP, is pulling together an “Offshore 100,” an award program to recognize service providers doing interesting offshore projects. What’s interesting about it is that it’s co-sponsored by NeoIT, which is an offshore provider itself. Nothing like handing over details about your revenue, top clients, number of certified staff and a bunch of other proprietary information to a company that might be considered a competitor.
Perhaps Sourcingmag.com should pull together an awards program too — good way to get in touch with vendors and find interesting case study subjects to follow up on. Besides, these things are always supposed to include a night of fine dining and hob-nobbing in some elegant setting — and we think we’d look fabulous in formal wear.
