Most corporations have adopted a “follow the sun” deployment strategy for establishing software development and applications centers. Because of this, more companies are now embracing the US for siting new capacity.

Increasingly, domestic IT Centers are locating in mid-size or in some cases smaller metro areas. This trend is driven by the pursuit of both operating cost savings and less competitive labor markets. Of course, larger centers and/or those requiring harder to find skills (e.g., IoT, cloud security, web security, JBoss, metadata design, integration architecture, cloud computing, and selected programming languages such as JavaScript) will tend to gravitate to Tier 1 metro regions.
