Authors: Hahn, Eugene D.; Doh, Jonathan P.; Bunyaratavej, Kraiwinee
Product Type: Journal Articles
Source: MIS Quarterly

As worldwide competition exerts increasing pressure on the IS function of firms to become geographically unbundled, and IS services are dispersed among increasingly distant and unfamiliar locations, the issue of risk emerges as a significant factor in decisions about where to locate offshore facilities. Our study contributes to the literature on risk and IS offshoring in providing the first worldwide empirical examination of the determinants of actual firm IS offshoring behavior with respect to offshoring location risk.
