Malaysia Outsourcing Scorecard

Jul 10, 20071 min

Government support and world-class infrastructure offset by a lack of service maturity and small labor pool

  • Overall Ranking: Challenging
  • Average 2nd Year Programmer Salary: $10,000 to $15,000
  • Geopolitical Risk: Moderate
  • English Proficency: Fair
  • Pros: Ranked third on A.T. Kearney’s offshoring attractiveness list. Strong governmental support and continued investment in world-class infrastructure (Multimedia Super Corridor initiative). Programs and policies to expand the labor pool and deepen English language and technical skills. Could be a good second location for minimizing offshore risk.
  • Cons: Lacks critical mass to be a top IT services location. Low service maturity and small labor pool.
