CIOs have a wider choice of IT sourcing options than ever. Outsourcing remains a popular option, and while there are powerful cost arguments, the experience of early adopters also highlights potential pitfalls which can result in acrimonious – and public – disputes.
Could services are also high on the agenda, extending beyond its traditional focus on Data Centre facility management into new areas such Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Product as a Service (PaaS) or Software as a Service (SaaS). But what are the risks, and what is right for your company? Even the straightforward procurement of commodity hardware and software brings its challenges, with a complex and sophisticated supplier market and increasing board scrutiny of IT spend.

We provide an end-to-end service, from the evaluation of sourcing options, through to supplier selection and programme management of any subsequent transition.
