How Microsoft divvies up work with India

That’s one of the insights developer group VP S. Somasegar shared with Indian tech news outlet Rediff in an interview focused on Microsoft’s India Development Center in Hyderabad:

On what criterion did you allot the work to be done in the US and also at IDC, Hyderabad?

It is a combination of two things. First, we look at what kind of expertise we have here, what kind of expertise we have in the U.S. and what kind of expertise we have in the rest of the world. Then we look at what kind of features and technologies we want to develop. Depending on that, we allot work to various centers.

For example, we know there is interoperability expertise here. So, we allot that work here.

Somasegar also talked about the contributions that IDC made to Vista, including VPN features and Unix interoperability.
