The bottom line behind outsourcing software development is definitely cost cutting. And when one gets the best at a comparatively cheaper rate it is nothing less than icing on the cake. Most advantageous and efficient software development is possible at a cheap rate today because surprisingly they come from some of the poorest countries in the world, as for example, India. After all a few years back who would have fancied that the country with the highest rate of poverty and which is ranked among the third world countries would come up with world class first rate software development companies http://www.infysolutions.com.
