A feeling that “Software Industry is down and will not come back to its previous state” is there within everyone’s mind. But that’s not exactly true. The current Economic Crisis (Recession) has effected every industry right from banking sector to automobile sector and hence the software industry. Our media covers more news on Software industry, so we all know only about them.
1. Everyone knows that Microsoft, the World’s biggest Software company fired 5000 employees but no one knows that Intel, the World’s biggest Electronic chip manufacturing company fired 6000 employees.
2. Everyone knows that Infosys announced a decline in its profits but no one knows that AMD, World’s Second largest Electronic chip manufacturing company announced losses for this business year.
3. The whole world about Satyam issue but no one knows that Circuit City, America’s second biggest electrical company has been shut down and 40,000+ employees are left jobless.
