Organizations typically spend up to 75% of their IT budget externally both in the process of providing operational IT services, and also to drive technology and business transformations. 

These programs are central to any organization’s technology agenda and a critical enabler for organizations to achieve their digital transformation. Common challenges involve conflicting interests, complex legal and regulatory requirements, and ambiguity in an ever-evolving market of providers and technology.

Sourcing and transformation initiatives can arise for a number of reasons such as the need for external specialist expertise, scalability, cost structure optimization, or a distressed deal with an incumbent service provider, to only name a few. Our IT Sourcing and Transformation experts provide a variety of specific skills and knowledge required to drive each individual sourcing initiative while at the time integrating them into the big picture overall strategy. This way, it is possible to align IT and business requirements for the long run.
