IT sourcing and procurement

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.

Deloitte can help you navigate this minefield. We don’t offer outsourced IT services, so are ideally placed to provide independent and objective advice. We provide an end-to-end service, from the evaluation of sourcing options, through to supplier selection and programme management of any subsequent transition. 

Talk to John Bell and James Clarke about your IT sourcing and related key concerns.
