Some companies feel uncomfortable implementing a full business
process outsourcing strategy. Partial IT outsourcing, or IT co-sourcing,
may offer a solution, temporary or final. It can provide a first
step to a full IT outsourcing service, but first keep the full
business process in-house, and delegate some tasks to outsourcing
service providers. Whether technical IT outsourcing or IT management
outsourcing, a flexible partnership with an external outsourcing
firm has proven to be a very efficient and cost effective strategy.
IT co-sourcing is a good formula. A well-balanced equilibrium
keeps in-house an important feeling of being in control, but provides
many of the advantages offered by the integration of IT outsourcing
and consulting solutions.
