IT Sourcing Europe provides its 2011 Report of the major trends among Swiss IT and/or software development outsourcing companies observed in 1Q 2011.
IT Sourcing Europe, a European IT outsourcing (ITO) market research and consulting organization, has surveyed Swiss outsourcing and non-outsourcing companies between April and May 2011 in order to explore the following areas: outsourced versus in-house software development / IT demands, trends, challenges, problem solving techniques, costs, overall impressions as well as factors driving companies to transfer their development to the external providers onshore (i.e. within own country), offshore (more than 2 time zones away from Switzerland), and/or nearshore (1 or 2 time zones away).

As a result of the survey, the following trends are observed on the Swiss ITO market in 1Q 2011:
