Emerging Markets

Emerging Markets in BRIC Nations are Focus of Technology Firms: "Forget everything you know about today's computer industry. Future technology growth will be driven by emerging markets rather than Europe, North America or Japan, and consumers in these emerging markets will probably use handheld devices rather than the desktops or laptops that have been our gateways to cyberspace." -- San Francisco Chronicle

It's been that way here in Japan for years.

India: Code For Freedom

Sun in India has started a coding contest for university students -- Sun Code for Freedom. The contest is designed to increase participation in open source and encourage academic developers to contribute code to OpenSolaris, Project GlassFish, NetBeans, Apache Derby, and Open Portal. Actually, this program could really help facilitate new developer relationships across all these projects in India, and that's really cool. I see the Bangalore OpenSolaris User Group already getting involved, as I'm sure the other user groups in India will as well.

Also, the announcement has generated some press coverage in India, too -- Sun wants Indian contribution to open source: "This contest is about creating opportunities for students in India to learn more about open source technology and it is a unique contest in India," said Anil Gupta, vice president, India Engineering Centre, Sun Microsystems. "It is unique in combination in three ways: It offers an opportunity to students to work on real source code, real problem and make a real difference. We provide support to help them contribute to open source and we are offering this across the wide spectrum of technology from open source to applications."

Bhimavaram OpenSolaris User Group Project

The Bhimavaram OpenSolaris User Group Project (BVRM-OSUG) in India is now open. What's cool is that this is the first proposed user group to go through the new project instantiation process (summarized here) written by the OpenSolaris Governing Board (OGB). Check out the launch photos from Raju Alluri. There are also a dozen or so OpenSolaris User Groups that are in the process of migrating to projects status on the site. We've made a lot of progress the last two weeks, and you can track all the movement within the Advocacy Community Group. I can see I'll have many user groups to visit when I go to India. Excellent.

India OpenSolaris Portal Opens

The India OpenSolaris Community opened their portal today: http://in.opensolaris.org/. Very cool. That makes five portals open and about seven to go. See the portal project for more information and the i18n list for discussions. Also, all of my blogs about the portals are tagged here.

Japan: "A Clear Standout"

Asia's Skyscraper Economies Hit a Glass Ceiling: "These should be heady days in Tokyo. One reminder of that came in a recent survey by the Economist Group, which declared Japan the world's most innovative nation. The rankings were calculated by comparing the number of patents per million of population for 82 nations. Japan was a clear standout. Yet China is getting most of the attention in Asia, followed closely by India. Japan needs to work harder to remind investors it's recovering, something to which Asia's traditional growth engine isn't accustomed. Tokyo is a cautionary tale. It boasts some of the best infrastructure anywhere, globally dominant companies, a highly educated labor force and prints Asia's only truly international currency. Yet Japan's failure to internationalize its markets means its appeal trails that of Hong Kong, Singapore and Seoul." -- William Pesek, Bloomberg

That summary seems pretty accurate from almost everything I've heard about the business of Japan. Very interesting piece in Bloomberg here. Some Asian markets are booming, but there are just as many warning signs for challenges ahead -- and most seem to be focused on Japan. The study that Pesek refers to is from the Economist Intelligence Unit and concludes in part that "Japan, Switzerland, the US, and Sweden are the world’s top four innovators among the 82 economies."

Asia: The Future of Development?

Developer Population to Reach 19 Million by 2010 -- "By 2010, 43% of all developers will be found in the APAC region. That is an 83% increase from 2006, compared to just a 15% increase in North America for the same period." -- Evans Data

India: "Top Level Talent"

Is globalization starting to level the playing field? Perhaps in some segments of some markets it is. Check out these few paragraphs from a long piece in the Wall Street Journal -- Some in Silicon Valley begin to sour on India: A few bring jobs back as pay of top engineers in Bangalore Skyrockets:

\*\*\*
Several years on, the forces of globalization are starting to even things out between the U.S. and India, in sophisticated technology work. As more U.S. tech companies poured in, they soaked up the pool of high-end engineers qualified to work at global companies, belying the notion of an unlimited supply of top Indian engineering talent. In a 2005 study, McKinsey & Co. estimated that just a quarter of India's computer engineers had the language proficiency, cultural fit and practical skills to work at multinational companies.


The result is increasing competition for the most skilled Indian computer engineers and a narrowing U.S.-India gap in their compensation. India's software-and-service association puts wage inflation in its industry at 10% to 15% a year. Some tech executives say it's closer to 50%. In the U.S., wage inflation in the software sector is under 3%, according to Moody's Economy.com.

Rafiq Dossani, a scholar at Stanford University's Asia-Pacific Research Center who recently studied the Indian market, found that while most Indian technology workers' wages remain low -- an average $5,000 a year for a new engineer with little experience -- the experienced engineers Silicon Valley companies covet can now cost $60,000 to $100,000 a year. "For the top-level talent, there's an equalization," he says.

That means that for a large swath of Silicon Valley -- start-ups and midsize companies that do sophisticated tech work -- India is no longer the premier outsourcing destination. While such companies make up just a fraction of India's outsourcing work, they had been an early catalyst for the growth of India's information-technology business and helped the country attract other outsourcing clients. Their rethinking of India raises red flags for the country.
\*\*\*


So, the article seems to be articulating the position that maybe India is not the best place to grab your cheap labor anymore because the cost of top engineering talent is rising. Oops. Sorry, Silicon Valley. A funny thing happened along the way of globalization -- a new market was created and its beginning to assert itself. Better look elsewhere for your outsourcing needs. And the article points out that this is actually the case. Vietnam and the Philippines are now hot for cheap tech labor.

Don't get me wrong. This article is a pretty fair piece. I'm only criticizing mildly. But my perspective has changed significantly, and I read stuff like this very differently now. Ok, so wages of top engineers in Bangalore are rising, and as a result, some tech firms in the Bay Area are looking elsewhere to save some cash. Fine. That's part of globalization. But why is that considered a "red flag" for India? Why can't it simultaneously be considered a "green flag" demonstrating the growth and increased value of the top engineering talent in India? That's exactly how an American would view it had we been discussing Silicon Valley. But I don't see that context expressed in this article. It's all one way -- saving expenses by outsourcing in far away places so one side benefits. But you can look at it another way. Since these Indian engineers are worth more they must be putting out better stuff, so what new innovations will they create in the future that will transform India's economy and make it even more competitive? Isn't that a perfectly reasonable perspective as well?

OpenSolaris Principles

I often talk (here, here) about the value of the OpenSolaris Community Principles, and thanks to the Country Portal Project we now have the principles expressed in a few different languages around the world. When we started the portal project, we offered each portal team a certain number of pages to translate initially so each portal would open with basically the same information. Over time, however, we want each portal to grow in ways specific to each region. But as the portals diversify, we'd also like to keep some things consistent across all regions -- The Principles being one of those obvious items.



In English
...

Project Overview: Our principles
  • The project will evolve in full view of the world. By opening our code, processes, documentation, and historical information to everyone, we offer a real opportunity for others to join our community and contribute from an equal footing. Technical information will be withheld if there are legal restrictions, never because it is incomplete or of poor quality.
  • We will be inclusive. Proposals will be evaluated based on technical merit and consistency with overarching design goals, constraints, and requirements.
  • We will be respectful and honest. Developers and users have the right to be treated with respect. We do not make ad hominem attacks, and we encourage constructive criticism. Our commitment to civil discourse allows new users and contributors with contrarian ideas an opportunity to be heard without intimidation.
  • Quality is always a top priority. The OpenSolaris project will continue the long tradition of quality engineering established by the Solaris Operating System (OS).
  • We are independent. Decisions within the project are made independently from those concerning Sun's business. Sun's management controls the business aspects of the Solaris product, but will not exert undue influence within the OpenSolaris community.

Language and Globalization

Interesting. In a world of billions of people, companies are still having a hard time hiring -- Where Are All The Workers? Companies worldwide are suddenly scrambling to manage a labor crunch. It seems as we globalize, technical skills are critical to remain competitive. But just as important are those skills involving language and communication. Don't you agree? The issue comes up in this article but only way at the end.

India

Here's a giant article on India's economic growth -- The Next Industrial Giant Is ... India? Fascinating to see the competition between India and China in this article and the very real distinctions between their economic systems. I'm looking forward to spending a great deal of time in both countries in the coming years.
