Sounds like you've seen a broader spectrum of outsourcing that I have. Thanks for the comparison.

One problem we don't have here is having our data taken hostage, but that's only because we have strict rules around where data is stored and who has access to it.

We've transitioned systems to other internal teams in the past, and typically they also just assume that if it was written by offshore that it's unmanageable trash and that it'll need to be rewritten.

In some ways it's insulting how we treat our offshore developers. Regardless of their skill level, I don't like how we refer to them as "resources" and never learn their names. It's admittedly very difficult to talk directly to them as team members with the time zone and language barriers, but still...
