DETROIT: General Motors Co plans to add up to 500 jobs at a new information technology center in Austin, Texas, marking the first step in the automaker's goal to bring the bulk of its IT work in-house over the next three years.
GM plans to hire software developers, database experts and others in Austin, the first of potentially four centers in the United States that GM plans to announce over the next year.
GM, the largest US automaker, once a pioneer in outsourcing, said on Friday that bringing IT work in-house will make the company more efficient and productive.
"We're really trying to drive the innovation and development capability of IT inside GM," GM Chief Information Officer Randy Mott said. The changes will "support our business and the overall transformation that's happening within GM as a company."

Snip~ "The new center is the start of Mott's IT strategy, which he first outlined to GM's 1,500 IT employees in June. GM outsources about 90 per cent of its IT work, with 10 per cent done in-house.
Mott hopes to reverse the per centages within three years. He also plans to hire more people to focus on IT development and innovation."

4. "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt!"
...just HAD to mention that again...before Mittens tries to Etch-a-Sketch it.
Oh, Oh...I know..."I was against Detroit before I was for Detroit." "Obama took MY advice on Detroit!"
Ready to wave that white flag yet, Mittens? You can NOT win on this situation.
