As companies focus on the core specialisms, most will look to the
benefits of outsourcing some, if not all, of the IT services
required. The benefits include: Cost-efficient operations;
Delivery of IT services at lower cost through economies of scale;
improvements in time-to-market of IT solutions; improvements in
capability and quality of IT service delivery. This essential
guide looks at the procedures needed to achieve all these
benefits when contracting an outsourcing partner. It explains the
benefits of a well thought-out and practical approach to
selecting a partner; a partner, indeed, whose performance may
make or break an organisation s delivery to market. This book is
a key reference guide to anyone procuring IT services and also to
those who are responsible for maintaining the contract once
signed. By covering all aspects of the Outsourcing contracting
process, its guidance will help reduce risks and
miscommunication. In addition its approach to the Request for
Proposal (also known as Invitation to Tender) shows how clarity
at this stage can deliver significant benefits as the services go
live in the operational phase.
