An Introduction to Offshoring
When German IT departments think about outsourcing
processes to third parties they have the possibility to decide between
national service providers (onshoring) and foreign providers
Onshoring vs. Offshoring
Onshoring providers often are not only located in the
buyer's region. They occur to be in the same town or sometimes on the
same piece of real estate.
With offshoring providers it is differentiated between
nearshoring and farshoring. With nearshoring the provider is located in
a country near Germany, such as Tchech Republik, Poland or Hungary.
Farshoring is related to providers from India or China for example.
Often countries like Ukraine or Israel also want to be recognized as
nearshoring providers, but the usage of these terms is not consistent
in the market.
