IT and business process sophistication are well recognized indicators of a company’s competitiveness and potential for superior performance when compared with industry peers. However, maintaining a state-of-the-art IT infrastructure is an expensive proposition that triggers many corporations to out-source their information systems. According to an AMR research study, over half of large enterprises are considering out-sourcing as a vehicle for reengineering their business process. Many firms have used the uncertainty in the market environment as an opportunity to focus heavily on eliminating waste and streamlining poor process flows. In addition, enterprises are often able to use outsourcing initiatives to free up resources to focus on core business value drivers, gain from economies of scale, liberate cash to be used for additional investments, and mitigate business and IT risk.
