This is the first definition to populate when posing this question in my search engine.

If you ask around the most common description of outsourcing is that it is: international, That it happens in giant call centers in non-English speaking countries, It is a huge fleet of human labor and bots handling your data, and That businesses only outsource as a cost saving measure ergo; Cheap Foreign Labor.
People are not wrong in this assumption because the majority of companies that outsource go this route. However, the notion that this is how ALL outsourcing firms are is incorrect. The truth is there is a myriad of ways in which to offload certain tasks and responsibilities to highly qualified individuals right here in the United States.
