What's Trending in Outsourcing

As the year 2011 comes to an end, you are wondering on what are the upcoming trends in the world of outsourcing.  Here are the outsourcing trends of 2012:  Want to stay up-to-date in the ever-changing world of outsourcing? As cited by the October issue of Globalization today, the official magazine for the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP), mass automation, cloudsourcing and the likes, keeps you ahead among the rest.
