Chrysler points out that the IT services were previously performed by contractors that weren't Chrysler employees, but the Auburn Hills automaker declined to mention which company lost the work. IT workers at Chrysler are still nervous about the possibility of more IT outsourcing, however, and it's hard to blame them. Chrysler is strapped for cash and looking to free up money for new products, and IT isn't exactly a core automotive function. It will be interesting to see if Chrysler and Tata will one day expand the partnership to include more vehicles, but this time it's just bits and bytes.
