Yes, the opinion of the management academe and industry folks I know
(Wharton types) is that India, Israel, and Ireland have become "high
quality, high cost" places to do offshore development. So the search is
on for new digs, likely China (already). Places like Malaysia and
Indonesia are still thought of as "low quality, low cost" places to do
offshore development.
