The center of gravity in the technology world has shifted east. Today, China and India are producing some the world’s best-trained computer science and electrical engineering graduates. In each country, the consumer class and the domestic market for technology have ballooned. Western high-tech firms are increasingly sourcing their products’ assembly, and the innovation that drives those products, from China and India. Meanwhile, indigenous Chinese and Indian companies are creating intellectual property and innovations that will directly challenge those same Western companies.
In IT and the East, James M. Popkin and Partha Iyengar examine the vital questions these developments raise:
The authors also discuss for emerging alliances between Chinese and Indian technology companies in specific market such as IT services, textile, pharmaceuticals, and automotive components. These alliances have inspired the idea of “Chindia”— a combined China and India competing globally. Popkin and Iyengar present a compelling Chindia as a means to explain how these two great countries might soon reassert their combines influences on the international stage. And they explore the major implications of this development for Western businesses as wide ranging as IBM, Motorola, Accenture, Sun Microsystems, and Google.
featuring extensive interviews with high-level executives, government officials, and academics from around the world, IT and the East is the first book to articulate the challenges that new business scenarios and capabilities in China and India pose for Western technology firms.
