    I don't begrudge offshore workers getting jobs to feed their families.
    So let's reason together and don't hit me over the head until you read
    the rest.

    There are jobs Americans simply do not want anymore - everyone wants to
    get into the ""newer"" technologies. This is why CA, in its commitment to
    IDMS, is training people in India (I did hear this from a reliable
    source in Level 2 a while back). Does any one think that the IDMS
    developers will be here forever? Some have already retired. Could L2
    start retiring someday? Of course. After all, as I heard my manager say,
    ""You can't find any IDMS person (DBA or programmer) anymore under the
    age of 50.""

    So CA has no other choice but to farm these jobs offshore where workers
    are willing to be trained and support products such as IDMS. On the flip
    side I'm sure the cheap cost of paying the employees is a major factor
    and does affect the existing crop of IDMS players like other
    outsourcing. long does it take for an offshore worker to gain
    expertise in IDMS? The answer is through experience and no one can top
    the current CA IDMS developers, Level1 or Level2 people or the IDMS user
    community when it comes to that.

    Just my opinion.
