Outsourcing, Offshoring, Offshore Outsourcing - What's the Difference?
- Outsourcing and offshoring are two related, but distinct topics. Outsourcing is the movement of an internal business function to an external company, regardless of the location of the company. Offshoring is the movement of an internal business function to another country, regardless of whether it stays in the same company or not. Offshore outsourcing is the combination of the two, the movement of an internal business function to both another company and another country. The terms are not synonymous and none should be removed considering the various issues concerning the various combinations of these topics. Vicissidude 22:14, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
Strongly agree with merging this with Offshoring. The issues related to offshore outsourcing are better presented to readers when discussed together with offshoring. Strom 23:35, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
Outsourcing and offshoring are two different things. They don't necesseraly go together. Hence Offshore outsourcing is a separate phenomenon, I think it deserves a separate article.
- My impression was also that offshore outsourcing and Offshoring could be merged. But if they are not, the relationship between the two should at least be clarified in both (Tophee1 (talk) 22:14, 4 November 2012 (UTC))

This page is too IT-centric
The criteria listed for offshore outsourcing relate only to IT projects and clearly imply something totally false: that factory labor cannot be offshore outsourced. I agree that this article should be merged with offshoring, as the issues discussed there relate to both types of offshoring (offshoring jobs within a company and offshoring jobs to another company, aka offshore outsourcing).

Inconsistency in "Countries involved" Section
First, it mentions the Philippines as being involved in Customer Support, IT Support, Programming, Animation and Transcription. But later on it says the country is involved in Programming, R&D, Data Entry and Customer Support. Now one must be wrong, Problem is, I don't know which 188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:55, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
