That's certainly the reality I see more and more frequently these days, and it doesn't matter if it's a low-cost, offshore outsourcer or one of the "Big N" consultancies.

Still, I think if we get enough people standing on the beach yelling "No!!" to the tidal wave, maybe we'll at least be heard for the fleeting moment before we're overwhelmed and washed away.  Hopefully, there will still always be an active, vocal, intelligent and productive minority producing robust systems and software based on proven foundational principles.

We'll just have to wait and see how that all actually works out. ;)

Come, Sancho!  We must be off.  There are systems to be saved!
