Abstract

It is meaningful to investigate the know-how of experienced project managers on the side of vendors about the risk in offshore software outsourcing. A survey is conducted to find out the main risk factors from the vendor's viewpoint. The questions asked include background information of vendor and respondent, suggestions to the client, and evaluations on experienced offshore projects. In all, 131 respondents from 77 vendors evaluate 241 offshore software outsourcing projects upon 30 items. The background information about the respondents and the vendors is summarized first. The preliminary analysis on the characters and the achievements of experienced offshore projects is reported in this paper. Some conclusions are drawn at last.
