Insourcing

Friday, October 1st, 2010

This is nice:

Yahoo formally opened its state-of-the-art data center in Lockport on Monday, in what company executives and local economic development officials say will be the first of several high-technology companies to locate sophisticated facilities in Western New York.

And it could be just the beginning for the area.

But the best part about the Yahoo deal?

Perhaps most significantly, it also includes one of the company’s two global operations centers, which monitor the international network of Web sites and services to ensure they are up and running 24 hours a day. That operation had been in Bangalore, India, but the company closed it to bring the work to Western New York.

Leave it to Dreamtown to change outsourcing to insourcing. Sweet.
