In today's Yomiuri Newspaper (p. 9) there is an article on India's IT service company, Tata Consultancy Services, which is now focusing on Japan's huge market by increasing the number of software engineers who have done some work for Japan in the past and training them intensively in the Japanese language. In the interview section of the same article, the president of Infosys Technologies emphasizes the importance of the Japanese software market and its recent changes in favor of Indian software companies. It is concluded in the aricle, however, that relation-building in Japan is not easy for any Indian company, given the geographical as well as psychological distance between Japan and India. According to a report on the 10/16/2006 issue of Yomiuri (see the link above), there is an increasing number of Indian IT engineers living in Japan, trying to overcome various barriers for their success in Japanese business. Hopefully, their efforts are now paying off.
