A Wealth of Choices: From Anywhere on Earth to No Location at All

For the past six years, consultancy A.T. Kearney has been ranking more than 50 countries on its Global Services Location Index, which measures financial attractiveness, people skills and availability and business environment for business services offshoring. This year, the top three locations are still India (7.04 points), China (6.15 points) and Malaysia (5.98 points).

"India is still unrivaled in both scale and skills," says A.T. Kearney. China is emerging as an alternative to Eastern Europe in high-end IT and analytics, while Malaysia's advantages include its "politically stable, multilingual environment at reasonable rates -- a good fit for companies with mid-sized demand and a lower risk appetite."
