It goes to show how easy it is to manage a Microsoft based tech environment when even Microsoft has to outsource it’s IT services to a cheaper India based support firm.
Neither Apple nor Google would ever consider outsourcing IT. It’s a point of pride at both Apple and Google just how little they spend on IT compared to typical Fortune 100 companies (which typical companies, of course, use Microsoft infrastructure).
Get Off the High Horse Update:
Bishop posted an update with a response from Microsoft, in which they claim this is not a change so much as a consolidation of third-party support services. And, a little birdie informs me that Apple “heavily leverages” Infosys as well.
