Can IT be true?

Posted by Geoff Zodda, Managing Director at Glenmont Group

With another firm relocating their IT Operations to less costly locations, the question is whether this is a flash in the pan or a trend that is worth keeping an eye on? Wilmer Hale (Dayton, OH), Orrick (Wheeling, WV) and Shearman & Sterling (Melville, NY) have been very successful with their relocations. Now Pillsbury Winthrop LLP is the latest firm to relocate their IT group to Nashville. Who will be next?

We’ve helped those employees that have drawn the short straw as well as firms in need of bulking up their new center of IT Operations. I have to say from personal experience, that it’s a very strategic move, with pros and cons. Do you trade in what you’ve established over the years to tread into new waters?
