IT Outsourcing

Reasons for outsourcing

Outsourcing is a common trend in information technology and other industries. Businesses outsource for services that are seen as intrinsic to managing a business and serving internal and external customers. Products, such as computer parts, and services, such as payroll and bookkeeping, can be outsourced. In some cases, the entire information management of a company is outsourced, including planning and business analysis as well as the installation, management, and servicing of the network and workstations.

In addition to saving on overhead and labor costs, the reasons companies employ outsourcing include improved efficiency, greater productivity and the opportunity to focus on core products and functions of the business. Furthermore, more companies are looking to outsourcing providers as innovation centers. According to Deloitte’s 2016 outsourcing survey, 35% of respondents said they are focused on measuring innovation value in their outsourcing partnerships.
