IT sourcing & procurement

A strategic business enabler

IT sourcing is becoming an increasingly strategic tool that CIOs can use to deliver more with less, leverage external expertise and enable fast-paced business strategy change.

Your challenge

You will face a number of challenges while defining, implementing and controlling your IT sourcing strategy:

  • How do you predict the impact of HR, tax and regulatory considerations on your outsourcing strategy definition?
  • How do you break down your service portfolio? What criteria and drivers do you use to build your sourcing strategy?
  • How do you document the business case and promote it to other CxOs?
  • Do you have sufficient knowledge of what is available on the market and of the current trends to make sound decisions?
  • How do you determine fitness and readiness of specific processes for outsourcing?
  • How do you manage change and transition activities and what resources are required?
  • Which governance model do you implement to monitor and control services delivery and guarantee expected benefits?
