  • News: How to Reevaluate Outsourcing Contracts Best Practices

    Contract terms for outsourcing continue to change with the times, at least at the margins. The body of contractual best practices changes little in regard to specific terms available for governing outsourcing transactions, but their relative importance can shift in response to both ongoing and emerging risks. In 2009, for example, concerns over Satyam's sudden collapse and terrorism in Mumbai made customers keenly aware of their reliance on key service providers and how fragile they could be. But since then, Satyam is back solidly under new ownership (now Mahindra Satyam), and security measures in India and elsewhere have kept terrorism's specter largely at bay. While the risk of terrorism or a sudden failure of a key supplier -- then top of mind -- have fallen in priorities, new issues have emerged as more likely near-term concerns.

  • Opinion: Skyrim Launch Party: 33 Degrees, Snow Coming Down

    True story: The car next to mine was covered in snow when I pulled into the parking lot for Skyrim's launch party last night a few minutes after midnight. I'm in southern Michigan, where snow's no big thing come November, but the other cars in the lot were ice-free, not a speck of white in sight--it's been unseasonably mild here, and we've yet to see our first dusting. I walked around back of this four-wheeled snow-topped anomaly, chunks of ice piled on its wipers, and sure enough: Michigan plates. Where had this guy come from?
