Out with it!

In the recent interview with Fortune magazine (issue dated: April 19th 2004) Kevin Rollins, CEO of the Dell Corporation, was quoted saying companies outsourcing their IT infrastructure would pay a heavy price in the long run. That got us at Network Magazine, thinking. We thought it would be interesting to present a view and counter view about the need to outsource.

However, during his research our Senior Correspondent, Soutiman Das Gupta, found that there were hardly any companies that didn't outsource. So instead of molding our cover story into a pros cons face-off, we thought it more pertinent to talk about benefit optimization from outsourcing.

The cover stories, therefore, profile some outsourcing engagements, and explore what CIOs, analysts and industry experts have to say in that regard.

An event to remember

Technology Senate 2004 is round the corner and we are proud to make the Indian CIO a part of the largest IT event of its kind in Asia. It will be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka, where we will fly down 200 of India's most influential CIOs.

Check the special curtain-raiser on page ?? to get a glimpse of what you can expect. Also register with us, incase you already haven't.

On the side

Radio Frequency Identification seems to be generating waves lately. So much so that in every forum, from the Gartner Summit to the CII Summit, RFID gets at least a mention. Our reporter, Deepali Gupta stepped out to find that despite the curiosity it has created, RFID implementation is still in its nascent stage in India. Be sure to take a look behind the RFID scene in India.

So go ahead dear readers, turn the page.
