We used to call this time sharing. It's common to outsource accounting, HR, travel or whatever is non-core. The classic example was Xerox which outsourced its accounting to IP Sharp in Canada. This created a crisis when someone realized that the company's the accounting and its data were implicitly being entrusted to an outside company that was also outside the US. This whole web services thing seems to be repackaging the old ideas as if they are a new discovery and is reminiscent of the naiveté by which Xerox found its data outside its control and outside US jurisdiction. Amazing what a fresh coat of glitz will do to an ancient idea. Yes, there are significant differences with each iteration but it still rusts. Sorry - undergoes an oxidization process that produces a wonderful shade of Autumn Brown -- this year's new color. -----Original Message----- From: David Farber [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Wednesday, August 10, 2005 06:12 To: Ip Ip Subject: [IP] Say Goodbye to Offshoring?
