Innovative approaches to Cost-cutting.

We’ll only highlight the third initiative, new ways to reducing IT operations costs via outsourcing.

  1. On-site to Off-shore ratios Рthe more roles that can be moved off-shore, the more money that can be saved.  With mature governance and monitoring of processes, companies can make more money on offshore resources.
  2. Time-to-Market РIT firms must cooperate with their outsourcing partners on efficient measures  to complete projects, leverage reusable components and foster knowledge-sharing in order to bring out the products faster on the market.
  3. Improvements in Quality – IT films must leverage the experience, stability, skills set, equipment and professional personnel of their outsourcing partners to ensure quality products and apps.
  4. Improvements in Productivity – When IT companies adopt the demand-based models, real productivity gains will follow because outsourcers must increase productivity to manage costs.
  5. Rates – with the economic challenges rampant everywhere, foreign exchange depreciating in favor to the US dollar, rates will become more competitive.

If you want to keep your company coffers full of funds and spend it on high-return, quality ventures, outsourcing could be considered as a means to that end.
