1: ambidexterity, capability combination and resource reconfiguration. Even though the analysis is presented in these categories, it must be emphasized that there are still considerable overlaps and interdependencies between these categories. 1 Ambidexterity Like most other software outsourcing vendors in China, VanceInfo started with lower-value added work such as coding, testing or customization, exploiting ­existing low cost technical capacity or local knowledge. This is typically the case with Japanese clients.

This example illustrates: We have a lot of synergies that come from developing skills when we work with multiple clients and so obviously for data privacy and IP protection standpoint the clients are clearly differentiated in different delivery centers but like I just said, by working these engineers through these delivery centers, that tends to see the cross pollination, if you 2 Collaboration as a Process of Creolization at VanceInfo 30 will, of technology and creativity that is used in these different deals and so our clients are pleasantly surprised that VanceInfo not only is familiar with their new service offerings and new technologies, we also bring things to the table from our own engineers, they have their own ideas, they work back and forth The iPad project discussed in the next Research Findings section also demonstrates various aspects of mutual sensemaking in practice.

Horizontally, I think mobile, cloud computing, business intelligence [too] because now you have tons of data, structured data and unstructured data, to help [companies] to figure out[analytics], especially for the large organizations like the largest bank in China,…so we have leveraged internal data technologies and also Data Warehousing technologies to help them to figure out their consumer behaviours 3 VanceInfo’s Reconfigurative Strategy 40 Cloud computing expertise has also been identified as a new growth area and this is being actively pursued through leveraging the skills and expertise of a range of geographically dispersed staff (serving different market segments) to consolidate their ideas and creatively push forward the new offering.
