In a move that may ease concerns about offshoring, India-based Infosys Technologies has created a U.S.-based business consulting unit.
Infosys overall has about 22,000 employees, with roughly 18,000 based in India. Kris Gopalakrishnan, chairman of Infosys Consulting, hinted that the backlash against offshore outsourcing played at least some role in the company's decision to launch a division in the United States. "We definitely are investing in the (U.S.) market," he said. "We're creating some jobs."
