Learning From the Pioneers of Offshore Outsourcing
Cloud Labor, Tools

What are the similarities between crowdsourcing and outsourcing? And what has crowdsourcing learned (and can still learn) from its more mature cousin? These are the issues that Carl Esposti explored in the research report Learning from the Pioneers of Offshore Outsourcing, which we put out earlier this year.

Tuesday’s “Future of Crowdsourcing Summit”, orchestrated as a single event with simultaneous productions in San Francisco and Sydney linked by video and social media, was well executed and received positively as speakers, panelists and a highly engaged audience discussed the adoption, opportunities and consequences of crowdsourcing.

Samasource: Tapping the Private Crowd
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

Crowdsourcing.org recently spoke with Leila Janah, CEO of Samasource, about the company’s vision and business model. Samasource offers a “private crowd” as a model that fits between traditional outsourcing and crowdsourcing; the former providing advantages delivered through the organization of qualified labor and the latter delivering the greatest labor arbitrage advantage.  Samasource employs a dedicated workforce, managed off-shore by trained service partners that provide quality control in designated work centers. Janah describes Samasource as “a distributive work company that employs crowdsourcing principles.”

The uTest Army: a crowdsourcing model for web & mobile application testing

One of the tenets of the open source software movement was that armies of coders and testers would fall-in and self organize driven purely by intrinsic rewards. This was driven by the notion that they could not only build it better, but that closed and restrictive practices were not in everyone’s best interest! So, it would seem that if you could harness the intrinsic motivations of this special breed of individual and further reward their performance, you might just have an unbeatable business model…..maybe uTest has discovered that model?


I was keen to find out what made uTest’s model different and, from the looks of its top name client list, what was underpinning its obvious success. I recently interviewed Matt Johnston, uTest’s Chief Marketing Officer, who shed some light on uTest’s interesting business model.

CrowdConf2011: How the Indian Outsourcing Model Paves the Way for Enterprise Crowdsourcing

There is no question in my mind that crowdsourcing is a provocative model that will re-shape and augment more established forms of sourcing. It’s not a matter of ‘if’, but rather how large a disruption will amass — and how quickly.

While the model seems new, it has much in common with more established models — and as such, we have case history that we can learn from that will help us accelerate the wholesale adoption of crowdsourcing.


Let’s take a look at the outsourcing industry in India. How the Indians conquered outsourcing is a model we can replicate to establish the broad adoption of crowdsourcing. Back in the 1990’s, the Indian outsourcers weren’t considered as competition for the large national or global ITO and BPO providers. While the larger players were competing for transactions in the tens or hundreds of millions in annual contract value, the Indians were winning pitiful contracts — a million here, two million there — so small they were off radar.

How CloudFactory Creates Digital Assembly Lines
