My name is Nick Krymnick-krym, office 1-25-09 and I am a technology professional with over 25 years in IT industry.  I have been extremely fortunate in my professional career: working with great teams, dealing with real business challenges, solving tough issues, tackling cutting edge technologies, and generally having a lot of fun. Most of my career to date has been in start-up environments providing services and products to huge organizations, Fortune class companies, and consumers at large. That gave me a chance to wear many hats and learn almost every aspect of the IT industry. While I grew up to be a jack of all trades I did not want to end up a “master of none” and over past 10+ years I have been concentrating my energy on leading organizations developing software as a head of technology.

The reason I started this blog is to share my 15+ years of experience in IT outsourcing. My first offshoring experience goes back to ’92 when I decided to build my own team based out my motherland, Russia. Those were very turbulent times and my venture did not work out. I found myself predominantly on a buyer side using offshore resources from many countries in different models for variety of roles. I worked with offshore resources in on-shore, offshore and mixed models; with engineers from India, China, Russia and many other courtries; in ODC, BOT and classic augmentation models, on MIS, Product Development and Professional Services tasks… By no means I can say I’ve seen it all, I’ve just seen a lot. And if you think I could be of help to you as an outsourcing adviser let me know – email me  You do not need to have your checkbook ready, I do a plenty of work pro bono ;)
