What is Infrastructure outsourcing and hosting?

It's the management of your applications and information technology (IT) systems. You strategically partner with IBM to manage and operate your applications and IT systems, under a mutually beneficial agreement. The outsourcing agreement may include the transfer of IT employees and IT assets to IBM. IBM provides service level assurances to ensure quality of service is attained and measured.
