Booming Software/IT Industry

Software Industry As A Pillar Industry
  • The software industry has been targeted by
    Chinese government as a new strategic pillar
    industry with preferential development
  • A series of policies for supporting and propping
    up have been appeared in China, such as
  • Some Policy to Encourage the Development of
    Software and IC industry -- No.18 Document,
    issued by the State Council in 2000
  • "Action Plan for Invigorating Software Industry
    Development,2002-2005 No.47 Document, issued
    by the State Council in 2002

No. 18 Document (SC18)
  • The most important central government policy for
    the software industry
  • The document policies for software companies
  • Value-added Tax (VAT) refund for RD and expanded
  • Tax preferences for newly established companies
  • Fast-track approval for software companies
    seeking to raise capital on overseas stock
  • Exemption from tariffs and VAT for software
    companies imports of technology and equipment
  • Direct export rights for all software firms with
    over USD 1 million in revenues
  • Right to set salary levels and to grant bonuses
    to investors
  • The Chinese government has also actively
    encouraged partnerships and joint ventures with
    foreign companies to assist in the development of
    Chinese software services firms

Tax Policy In No.18 Document
  • The new tax policy for SW enterprises Before
    2010, tax administration authority will collect
    tax of 17, but it will pay back to the companies
    if the tax rate is higher than 3
  • The new software companies can enjoy the free
    income tax for the first two years and half
    income tax in next three years since its
    profiting year. The subsidy can be used for RD
    investment and further production
  • So the real income tax for software firms falls
    to 3 from previous 17. It is a real big

Some Regulations In No.47 Document
  • The document explicitly specified that when
    government needs to purchase software, it should
    buy the domestic product first in the same
  • It also suggests government office to use
    licensed and autonomous developed software
  • It also requests that in governments information
    engineering project, the minimum cost for
    software is no lower than 30 of total investment
  • It explicitly requests that during the tenth
    five-years plan government should spend more than
    4 billions for RD in software industry
  • It clearly puts training and education of
    software talents in governments agenda

Software Industry Bases Parks Constructed
Regional SW Cluster
  • A number of software industry bases and parks
    have been constructed in China as a main measure
    in developing local software industry
  • 11 State Software Industry Bases were established
    under the support of Ministry of Information
    Industry and the State Development and Reform
    Committee, they are Beijing, Shanghai,
    Guangzhou, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Xian, Chengdu,
    Dalian, Jinan, Changsha, and Zhuhai
  • 2004 announced 6 State Software Export Bases
    Shanghai, Dalian, Shenzhen, Tianjin, Xian, and
  • 22 State Software Parks were opened under the
    Torch Plan, Ministry of Science Technology
    (MOST). These parks accounted over 80 of
    China's total software sales from the 7128

National Key Projects
  • 1995, the MOST launched the National Torch
    Program, which is to establish software parks and
    software production bases
  • Golden Projects Series
  • City Funded Information Port or Digital City
  • November 2003, China Offshore Software
    Engineering Project (COSEP) launched by Torch
    High Technology Industry Development Center,
    Ministry of Science Technology
  • Fund For Electronics Information Industry,
    Ministry of Information Industry
  • 863 High-Tech Program, MOST
  • The National Basic Research Program (973 Program)
  • National ST Breaking-Through Program
  • Fund For ST Based SME Innovation, MOST

Torch Programme
  • The Torch Programme is a guidance programme for
    developing new/high tech industries in China
  • It was approved by the State Council and is
    implemented by the MOST
  • The purposes of the programme are to implement
    the strategy "Promote the development of the
    country with science and education", carry out
    the general policy of reform and opening to the
    outside world, bring into full play the
    advantages and potential of China's scientific
    and technological forces, take market for
    orientation, promote the commercialization of
    new/high tech achievements, industrialization of
    new/high tech good and internationalization of
    new/high tech industries

The Main Contents of Torch Program
  • Create a Proper Environment for the Development
    of New/high tech Industries
  • Establish New/high tech Industrial
  • Development Zones and Pioneering Service Centres
  • Projects -- an important component of the
  • Internationalization of New/high tech Industries
  • Training

The COSEP Project
  • In November of 2003, The Torch Center, a high
    tech development program started by the MOST,
    launched the China Offshore Software Engineering
    Project (COSEP)
  • Working in conjunction with US based
    ExperExchange, and using ExperExchange's Offshore
    Software Engineering Model (OSEM), COSEP is to
    provide outsourcing services from China to
    overseas corporate customers
  • The COSEP program will select a number of Chinese
    software companies from regional software parks. 
    These companies will go through a training
    program based on the OSEM process supervised by
  • Upon successful completion of the OSEM training
    program, a Chinese software company is then
    certified to take on offshore software
    engineering projects
  • This training program is an official seal of
    approval from the Chinese government to foreign
    companies that the companies that have gone
    through this training program have the processes
    and procedures in place to handle complex
    software outsource projects

Progress In Homemade Software
  • COSIX Operating System
  • Nuwa Project (Embedded OS)
  • COSA System Software Platform
  • Redflag Linux
  • KingBase Database
  • Electronic Typesetting System
  • Financial Packages
  • Virus Killing Packages
  • Language Translation Software
  • Search Engines

Multiple Funding Channels
  • The development of software enterprises is often
    eager for investment
  • Besides financial input from government, multiple
    funding channels have also been created in China,
    including venture capitals, private investment,
    venture fund, Overseas Return (HaiGui) Venture
    Fund etc.
  • So far dozens of Chinese software companies have
    went IPO on the domestic stock market, Hong Kong
    and Nasdaq
  • Some of the best performing IPOs of 2004 came
    from VC-backed Chinese companies. American
    depositary shares of Shanda Interactive
    Entertainment, a Shanghai-based online game
    company, have risen 238 since the company went
    public on the Nasdaq last May. ADSs of 51job, a
    Shanghai-based online job-listing service, are up
    222 since its Nasdaq debut in September
  • VCs and investment bankers have been flocking to
    China to get in on the action, and that kind of
    excitement should put an extra clench in any
    investor's stomach. There's genuine
    opportunity here, but pay attention to the risks

Market Driven
  • The state policy Industrialization Driven By
    Informatization creates a huge inner need and
    market for IT systems from 20 million Chinese
  • Financial package, office software, ERM, CRM,
    SCM, enterprise applications, e-business, system
    integration have became the hot spots pursued by
    Chinese software companies and give them much
  • Many successful software companies often have a
    dedicated vertical domain with special advantage
    in either technology or business strategy

  • The enactment of Chinas new Government
    Procurement Law (GPL) has specifically addressed
    the procurement of software the overall efforts
    of the Chinese government to protect and promote
    an indigenous software industry
  • In 2004 Chinese provincial governments purchased
    office software 410K sets in total, among them
    more than 280K sets are homemade (68.4). The
    cost for domestic SW packages is only 61.2
    millions, just occupying 24 of 250 millions
    total SW cost. Homemade OS purchased are 45K
    sets (39.2), breaking through past all of the
    same Microsoft products. Homemade Virus
    Killing Packages exceed 97

Talents Engineering-- From Process MaturityTo
People Maturity

Talents - The No. 1 Strategic Selection
  • Based on such essential cognition of that future
    economic competition is, in the end, the
    competence race of human resource, especially in
    the software professionals
  • High qualified human resource development has
    been listed as a national strategic task and an
    important measure for that
  • The CPC Political Bureau has put forward the
    state strategy Strengthen The Country By
    Talents in 2003. It calls for to better
    train and utilize talented professionals, and to
    foster a batch of high rank experts who are
    competent to the needs of socialist modernization
    and reformation and opening policy
  • Now there are common consensus in the whole
    country ST Is The First Productive
    Force and Talents Are The First Resource
  • In the State Next (11th) 5 years plan
    (2006-2010), a key issue has been listed is how
    to Construct the IT Talents Highland

Towards SE/IT Professionalism-- A New Target
  • To solve the HRD problem from the root, Shanghai
    has put forwarded a clear new target Marching
    towards SE/IT Professionalism
  • Although Chinas IT/SW industry is still in their
    infancy age, it is demanded to be mature more
  • IT/SE professionalism has became a global trend
  • Its Better For Us To Go This Direction More
    Consciously Right Now Than an Enforced Adoption
    In The Future
  • Earlier awareness for that is favorable for us to
    implement a jump development and aim at a high
    standard at HRD

A Current Urgency Fostering Middle-Level
Senior Professionals
  • An Objective of State Strategy Strengthen The
    Country By Talents and A Must For implementing
    the Prospering Country By Science Technology
    and Education strategy
  • Decision of the Central Committee of the
    Communist Party of China and the State Council on
    further strengthening the talent work Stressed on
    Putting education and training of quality
    talents at a prominent strategic position while
    striving to build an innovative country with rich
    human resources
  • It Counts For Our Core Competence. They will be
    the Backbone of IT Talents, Directly Reflecting
    The Gold Content in the Knowledge Capital
  • There is a Serious Gap in Current Chinas IT
    Talents from both Quantity and Quality. Lack
    of Middle-Level Senior Professionals Causes a
    Bottleneck Restricting Our Development
  • Successful Informatization Requires Leaderships
    and Strong Technical Support. This is also a
    Basis for Innovation and Tracking Technology
  • This is also Essential For Developing A Sound
    Talents Structure
  • For Shanghai, There is No Alternative But To
    Develop High-End Talents

Why Develop Our Own OPBOK
  • After doing a comprehensive survey on training
    models for outsourcing professionals, we found
    quite scattered solutions. Even each one has
    its merits and specific views, lack of unified
    framework is obvious problem
  • Many of them declared to be suitable for both
    clients and providers side, however, actually
    more clients-oriented after a careful examination
  • In view of these problem, we tried to integrate
    these existing models for assimilating the
    best of them
  • Now we have compiled a draft of OPBOK, which is
    provider-oriented and can be used in training of
    domestic outsourcing professionals
  • The design guideline behind the OPBOK is as

Insights Behind OPBOK
